Nugget from Nature


Many months ago a very thoughtful and generous Melody sent me this lovely nugget from nature.  The heart in the middle is SO amazing.

After months of admiring this little gem as is (it sat on my studio shelf where I would see it regularly and inevitably smile each time.)   Yesterday, while going through my items of potential, like this precious nugget from nature, I felt an urge to do something special with it.  So I did some slight altering and created this sparkle-centered necklace.

From within there is a light…

…let it shine.

May the glittery goodness inside you be the light that inspires others to shine.

  12. Scarlett, I think it’s either a walnut shell or perhaps a peach pit.
