se-ren-i-ty Noun: 1. The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled: "an oasis of serenity"
For many people, tea is a calming and soothing drink. It makes you stop a while. The act of the teapot, the loose tea or tea bag "performance", waiting for the brew, and then slowly sipping can bring a sense of serenity.
And thus, my latest necklace or it can be a bangle - combines the word and tea = "sereni-tea"
Hope you like it. I have a couple of other t's coming soon too.
Is it the same where you live? Do you nowadays see kale everywhere? It used to be that we only saw kale as a decoration in the meat or fish counter, but now it's being eaten instead of the meat!
I am a kale eater and no longer eat beef, and today, kale was my inspiration for a necklace. How often can you say a vegetable inspired a jewelry creation (although I did once make a "vegetarian bracelet" using the textures of different vegetables!)?
A little reminder necklace to eat your greens!
And, in case you didn't know, kale is one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat:
One cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 g fiber, calcium, Vitamin B6, magnesium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, copper, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus.
It's health benefits are primarily linked to the high concentration of antioxidant vitamins A, C and K and sulphur-containing phytonutrients.
This blog tells you the stories behind my silver and aluminum creations - namely: why the design came to me; what inspired me; what story is connected to the piece; how the piece starts a new story etc. The stories add so much more to the piece and continue to develop as the piece goes to it's new owner.
I also tell you a little about my life in the wine country of Sonoma County, California and my husband writes once a month about what is happening in our vineyard that month.
I hope you'll come back regularly. I look forward to your comments.
