Rainbows and Peace

About this design:

The peace symbols inspired me, and the crystaline rainbow seed beads, and the silver chain just kinda fell into place. This the only piece I've had the time to make here recently, as the drama with the mother in law has escalated to an insane degree. I'm lucky to have a few hours at a time at home just to get some sleep. I swear, she's driving me batty...erm..battier...I miss you all so much, and just don't want you all to think I've forgotten you, I haven't, I love you all, and would give an arm and a leg to be able to get on here more. Gah! Things have just GOT to change!!


silver peace symbols and chain, silver toggle clasp, silver beads, and translucent rainbow colors of seed beads.

    Darling ! :)

    Ravin, everything is going to be fine, just breath deep. Literally… On count of 4 in hale slowly through the nose, on count 8 exhale through the mouse. Repeat 6 times. It will calm you down. :)
