Stormy Skies and Peaceful Puddles

I’ve been thinking about rain, or rather about the lack of rain we’re experiencing here on California’s central coast. We need rain. We need water. Badly. So, I was inspired to make some pieces this month – earrings that will do a virtual rain dance, swinging and swaying on ear lobes this month – that I’m calling Stormy Skies and Peaceful Puddles.

This month’s EcoChic Designs earrings-of-the-month pieces are created in shades of blue, grey, and white, using upcycled sterling silver chain, blue labradorite coins and briolettes, moonstone briolettes and faceted rondelles, kyanite pillows, aquamarine rondelles, clear quartz rondelles, and navy blue potato pearls.

Photos to come...I know I'm tardy already.

Enjoy and hope for rain!

by Shel Silverstein

I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said—
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.
