I made a lot of earrings yesterday and then this piece called out to be made.
I used to wear one similar to it which was the first of this series I ever made. I gave it away to a friend who wanted it badly and have been waiting for just the right time to make a new one. Jewelry worn frequently can begin to become a talisman of sorts, especially when worn by those in tune with their inner strengths.
A good man recently mentioned that he thought I had a warrior's heart. I'm not quite sure what he meant completely but it did stick with me. I know I am quick to anger, quick to love and view life with a fierce passion. I will never submit but I will gladly follow one with strength and honor, and if there is no one to lead I will. My heart may be battered and bruised but it's forever solid.
