Libra Means Justice!

 Sun In Libra means a search for Justice, as Libran symbology includes the scales. The personification of Justice balancing the scales dates back to the Egyptian Goddess of Justice, Maat, who stood for Truth and Fairness. I do not have to go back to Ancient Egypt to find my muse, and personification of Justice. Exalting a GREAT woman whose legacy we should be Honoring now, a true heroine of Justice, here's The Delicious RBG, or the Ruth Bader Ginsbergbread Cookie! In Ruth We Trust!

Happy St. Patricks Day

For the love of The Irish and all things greening, St Patricks Day is a celebration of spirit! For 2020 amidst fears and needs for protection this fashion live was born. Leprechaun inspired, featuring a dark and light tartan print as well as green roses because.......Green! The face masks match the outfits whether tartan or gold and the rubber gloves have taken on a designer feel. These "leprechauns" are of all races and the fashion is gender neutral. Time to be lifted and amused by the lyrical folk of Eire in their St Patrick's Day best!

Into the Candy Sea

While we are in Pisces, there is no better time to explore the primordial sea in liquid candy, a sparkling medium.  From waves that gambol, to the sea creatures that inhabit and add to it's bounty, all can be portrayed in the magic of candy glass. Here are a few current pieces, which give a sense of waves, of what lives in them and what can be done candy style!

Valentine's Candy Cookie Confection

They say when you grow up you leave behind the things of childhood, but for me the pans I used to bang on as on 2 year old and the rolling pin I used to beat out a pleasant drumming sound have become my tools. One of the first sets of "cookie cutters" I found which kept me occupied for hours were the aspic cutters your mom may or may have not used for bridge sandwiches. I think I have had the same set for 40 years! The shaped always make me think of things like - design truth...how can they be arranged to portray a visual verity, a visual truth. Here is my take on some Valentine candy Jewelry, all candy and cookies gilded with edible gold. Each one a treasure and each one slightly different too! I framed the two groups in some color coordination, and they are about 3 - 4" in height and width. (The largest reach about 5", the smallest 2.5") Enjoy the View from the Brooch!
