Art is therapy? And a discount

Here is what I've been up to....  In between trying to take care of myself (been off sick for a while...), taking care of my daughter and stepson, etc.  Been feeling depressed a lot.  What else is new?  Well art is therapy they say, so let me humbly call this art, my art, an attempt at healing.  Hope you enjoy!
 Fun hematite skulls, fluted Tibetan beads, antiqued caps, hebron beads....
 Brass, handformed, picture is a repro of a fresco by Giotto.  Resin, gold flakes, gold leaf
 Kyanite, baroque beads, Tibetan lapis lazuli beads with silver caps, labradorite nugget
 Drops by Petra (scorchedearthonetsy), antiqued stampings, rhinestone hearts (teapotsandtelephones), vintage necklace bits
 Repurposed Afghan connectors, drops by Petra, rhinestone drop, pearl...

 Those birds have been through hell in my studio :)  but i love the end result.  I just highlighted them with a brass chain and gorgeous dangles by Petra again
 The pic doesn't do these justice. Antique sequins, baroque pearls, labradorite and roman glass shards
 handmade polymer clay globules, with tons of paints and patina, and semi-precious dangles (aqua-marine, pyrite, kyanite, labradorite)

 Handmade polymer clay heapins, antiqued caps, rondelles by Petra, African recycled glass, lampwork beads, Indonesian beads.  Also, magnificent drops from Teapotsandtelephones on Etsy.  Go check out her shop, it's worth the detour.
 A walk in the forest!  Connectors by Petra, moss agate, kyanite, mottled glass beads, lava bead... raku too.

Kuchi buttons that I made into connectors, Czech black nugget beads, and rhinestone drops.
 Clearly inspired by my friend Marina of fancifuldevices.  Handmade globule bead, glass drops, ceramic, electroplated quartz, and a big turkoman element enriched with Marina's cosmic rock technique.  Go check out her blog here.
Neckline is composed of woven cotton, fluted Tibetan beads...
 Gorgeous Petra hearts, antiqued caps, engraved glass beads, Czech nuggets. Below, antiqued brass chain, of vintage origin, and rhinestone chain.

 Le grand bleu - lapiz lazuli, ceramic "sugared" beads by my friend Kirstine (pm me for details - she's only got a shop in France), gritted Indonesian bead, rhinestone round, ceramic...

 Le grand bleu, 2 - gorgeous dangles by Marina @fancifuldeices, ceramic beads by Kristine, glass beads.
Resin circles from teapotsandtelephones, below, gorgeous earthy drops by my friend Kristine. Above, antiqued caps, gold/green beads of unknown origin, and pyrite rondelles.
