Under the Freeze



Under the Freeze [there is green]
(sterling silver, blue chalcedony and prehnite)
In the dead of winter, on the days my lips grow numb and my fingertips bright, I listen hard for green.  For growth.  For the churning of cellular multiplication, for the hum of photosynthesis, for the rhythm of sleep, for the good work of life turning within the solar system of pods and twigs and trunks, for the beating heart of it all.

Oh Kelly, you're working MAGIC! I'm amazed, I truly, truly am! These are so pretty. The twigs and pods remind me of bending pussy willows!

These are just gorgeous, stunning work. Very tempting, although I think I'm saving my pennies for something with a red/amber-y stone... ;)

Oh Kelly, this is the most perfect post. I don't usually do this, but my own blog has a pretty heartfelt post on the search for green, for hope.. Thank you for writing things better than I can x
