I used to make god's eyes like a fiend. I remember in particular, one summer surrounded by popsicle sticks and yarn balls, just going to town. Then I graduated to bigger sticks, and twine. Now it seems I've stepped it up once again to something a smeedge classier than a camp craft.
Two separate segments of sterling silver wire are hammered at the ends and sanded, then woven together with fine guage sterling wire to form this classic folk art icon. Measuring 1 1/4" x 1 1/4", it's dainty and elegant, but what a conversation piece!
It may inspire you to sing "Blowin in the Wind in eight-part harmony. Don't say you weren't warned.
On Saturday, 14 July 2008, a young, talented member of our poetry slam family was in a cave diving accident in Florida. She passed away on 30 June, after having been in a coma as a result of this accident. Our arts community is pulling together with our talents, prayers, and contributions to help her family to cover the 20 percent of costs that were not paid by insurance.
Shannon is one of the most stunning young talents that many of us have ever witnessed, and her family one of the most supportive we've seen. Her mother sent me these lines of poetry to share the spirit of some of Shannon's most recent work.

I don't know anything more about this than what i read when i stumbled upon this on etsy... i had just posted my silver god's eye and wondered if there were any other god's eyes around, and lo and behold. I usually feel pretty jaded, in general, but this really touched me.

I'm an actor in the NYC area, and I've been selling toner cartridges for far too long. They have been eating my soul.
I have been making jewelry as a hobby for ten years now, but was recently inspired to launch an Etsy website by a friend who pitched me an MLM jewelry company. If I had been tempted to get into a home business to sell someone ELSE'S jewelry, clearly it was time for me to start selling my own creations.
I handcraft jewelry using semiprecious stones, pearls, and the highest quality crystal and glass beads. Every piece is created with attention to detail and an eye for sparkle!
