DC: Aqua & face 14

it is her aqua aura 
that supported her chosen path

energy of a healers stance
breath of alpine waters
presence of serenity
wisdom of the ancients


long ago i took a thin sheet of wax
carved these heart-full pieces
cast them in sterling silver

i had strung them in pearls
but tired of that
and this weeks aqua inspired a new expression:
blue quartz, chalcedony, aqua marine and chrysophase

this is how it was for the first 20 years:


thank you Veronica for hosting DC!

her inspiration for us: 


thank you Alaya for inspiring a month of faces:
 29 faces



  1. Such an expressive face - perfect perspective and I love her ears!
    Your renewed necklace is beautiful.

  2. That's a wonderful drawing, open and pure. The ear made me smile:) - eric

  3. Love the Aqua face. And really like what you did with the necklace, what a transformation.

  4. Love the aqua healing elf, and the necklace in its new aqua incarnation is truly inspired!

  5. Loving aqua elf girl, but am totally amazed to pieces at your beautiful necklace. You've done an amazing job of casting. My one attempt at the lost wax method resulted in only the most marginal success. But I think you're right; the time has come to change its pearly shine to a deep, tranquil, watery one. Thank you so much for joining and I hope your weekend is spectacular.

  6. Beautiful, the aqua elf girl and the necklace, gorgeous! :-)

  7. She looks like she has a little secret to whisper~!:)
    Have a sweeet day my dear!<3

  8. what a playful aqua spirit. I agree, love the ears!
