my friend makes pretty things

I'll always think of her as an artist. 
Pink and Purple Dichroic Glass Keychain

Well, she did win art awards in high school,
 
& she received an art scholarship in college. 

But there's so much more to her, than simply that.

Pink, Silver and Grey Swarovski Bracelet

She has a calmness about her that is comforting.

She let me crash, plenty of times, when I need a refuge, like on my 18th birthday. 

Green Dichroic Glass Earrings

She is smart with her words in that perfectly sarcastic way, that makes me smile,&

we laugh at the jokes no one else can hear or see.

Silver and Red Cracked Glass Earrings

We can talk music. We can talk art.
We can do our nails. We can create.

We can just be.

Blue, Copper, and Silver Earrings

Her heart is huge. Her soul is kind. 

Silver, Copper and Blue Swarovski Crystal Bracelet

Some may think she's quiet,
and she does have her moments,

but I know her better.

Pink, Silver and Grey Swarovski Crystal Earrings

She's observing, taking it all in,

not expressing it all through words.

Green Sea Sediment and Red Fire Agate Earrings

Those are some of my favorite things.

She had a 
Faith No More poster
hanging on her bedroom wall.  

When I first read the book Peter Pan. When we would drive everywhere, in her pumpkin orange car. 
Always searching for something.


..."I want them to know it's me

It's on my head
I'll point the finger at me
It's on my head
Give it all to you, then I'll be closer

Smiling with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
I'll see you"
Ashes To Ashes  by Faith No More

  3. What an awesome post, Teddi! It reminds me of one of my closest friends. I think a similar sense of humour is one of the coolest things to have in any relationship. These pieces are stunning! :)

  4. these items are amazing. I am starting to get an addiction to jewelry now which is so bad cause they are pretty affordable but can add up when you buy way too much!

    Hope you had a great weekend my dear!
