ART IS THE QUEEN

"Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world."
-Leonardo Da Vinci

fave nook.
 Tokens of a religious nature, family heirlooms, small trinkets, mostly anything I've taken a fancy in over the years has accumulated in boxes I carry with me everywhere. I can not part from even the tiniest of miraculous medals random convents send me from putting my name on some Catholic mailing list years ago. I always know I will want them or need them at some point; something about their delicateness gives me a strange peace. 


goodies.
 With the help of some teensy tools, I made a couple rings tonight.  One is a St. Lucy medal, a name and story I've always loved (legend says she survived being burned alive after refusing to be put into prostitution by her betrothed, what a guy). The other cabochon back I painted gold (same color I painted my favorite little apartment nook above) and glued in a medal with the dove of the Holy Spirit. The artist in me won tonight, back to science tomorrow.
inspo on index I bought at a tiny Catholic gift shop.

BIG HANDS.
 itty bitty ring on left hand is my grandmother's, pearl on right from Forever 21.
Let me know if you have a ring in mind you'd like made, I may start a little kitten business.
