Mountain Sky

This is kind of a departure for me–from working with vintage findings to stone–but I couldn’t pass up these incredible lapis beads a few years ago. I’ve had the carved lapis pendant (lion embracing a ball) for many many years–purchased when I was in Hong Kong. I wanted to keep it simple and showcase the incredible blue of the stones. This reminds me of the piercing blue skies and afternoon clouds in the Colorado Rockies.

Unbelievably, we are supposed to set a weather record in Minneapolis today–70 degrees. It’s been 60 for the past two days, and 95% of any snow has fled. I think the lake will reassert itself today and we’ll have some open water at last. Hurrah for spring. Hope it’s warm in your part of the world.
