Be Still.......

Be Still......., originally uploaded by silvermonk.

Just want to share this with you. A email from our friend Alice.

"People come into your life for a REASON, a SEASON or a LIFETIME. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant."

Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Song Line Series

As you know i've been working on my new series. Drawing has always been my first love, so back to the basic and out came my Song Line series. It was created by handsaw simple lines onto a piece of sterling silver sheet. It's like a drawing on a piece of metal, very playful and organic and at the same time have a modern feel about it....

Like a vision from high above, the song lines are inscribed on the landscape, singing the wonders of the Earth.

I am really happy with my new adventure!

The African beads that i got from Beads4you arrived and i team them up with the other beads that i got from Kenya. I love this necklace, so Africa...

If you want to have a good look at what i've made, come to the Kirribilli art and design market tomorrow, I can't wait to be there.....

have a nice weekend!

Jacaranda Tree

Spring is here and the Jacarandas are blossoming. This is my favorite time of the year in Sydney. I drive pass Sydney Uni 4 times a day to take Gabriel to school and i can't stop thinking how lucky i am to be in this country! A far cry from the remote village in the tropical island of Hainan, China, where i spent a few years of my childhood hunting for lizards on the way to school....

Anything is possible....
Dream the impossible dream!

Spring time is also the time for renewal, i have put my whole stock at the Beehive Gallery ( 443 King St. New Town) on discount for a pre-X'mas sale. If you read this post and make a purchase of my jewelery on either Mintd or Etsy, remember to write the promotional code "Jacaranda" on the note to seller to get the 20% off! ( wait for my revised invoice to pay the correct amount). Valid untill next weekend!

have a nice weekend
