This will be a gift.
The stones are jasper and peridot and turquoise.
The leaves are Czech glass and vintage pearl.
But the best part is the geode.
On the outside, it is cold and hard.
But inside is where the treasure is, all glittery and stunning in beauty.
It makes me wonder how many people I have met that I didn’t take the time to find the treasure inside. And that cold and hard exterior was just there to keep them safe.
Today I’m going to smile more at people, no matter how angry or disconnected they seem. You never know what’s inside. And maybe it’s the kindnesses we give away that actually make those crystal interiors all the more brave and shiny.
You are creating such lovely pieces. Often people are like “diamonds in the rough”. When we put a little effort and work into them…. they sparkle and shine. People like precious stones can turn into valuable treasures. ♥
