Bead Soup Blog Hop...

Gypsy Soul...

The Archer led her life in whatever direction it wanted to, she pretended not to notice...

She collected her life in bits & pieces, a broken heart, betrayed, forgotten...

She carried her soul in the necklace, at every turn she added to it, a shell, a key to her heart, the buttons that came off of her loved ones clothes...but she always knew, always believed that life is good...once you reached the tree of life, it was always good...

The Gypsy Soul...a necklace with a story that I made with the lovely ceramic beads of Jenny Davies-Reazor and other goodies that she sent along, specially that awesome archer's sterling clasp...I added the chain and a few pieces, the necklace also has a pair of earrings...
Please visit all or as many of the blogs you can below and leave a comment...what a great party...hop along...
