Well, I had a week of finishing things off finally, and it feels so good to have
1. New work in the cabinets, and
2. A clean(er) and tidy(er) workbench
3. A flash of purple around - I'm not sure why, but it was missing.
So...TaDa! Here are the Purple Tiger Beads in a necklace
and a bead... Large Purple Violet Tiger Heart Pendant
The Amethyst Purple Chakra Lotus Flowers necklace turned out like this
Purple is one of those colours that is different in everyone's opinion - and it's really hard to achieve a real royal purple in glass. In the Tiger Beads I've achieved it by layering glass, finishing off with a gorgeous thick transparent layer. They're really quite vibrant.
The Amethyst colour is one that the makers of glass call purple, but to me it is much more pink that that. This is the colour of amethyst gemstones with lots of shades which give texture to the pieces.
In the Chakra System purple and violet represent the higher, lighter, faster Sixth and Seventh Chakras of the third eye (intuition) and the crown (connection to the Universe).
Perhaps this is why I have been connected to a website which delivers daily inspiration?
I've just begun to receive a morning message...something positive and encouraging to ponder within for a day.
This was my thought for today...
"An end result, imagined clearly and acted upon with expectation, Lesley, will always force the circumstances necessary to bring about its own manifestation, no matter how unpredictable, unlikely, or even impossible those circumstances may have previously seemed.
