Venturing onto unknown field. Soldering Bead and Head pins Part II

Sometimes, you will go through moments of solitude and frustration.
Friends you thought would be there will walk away from you.

Things  that you thought would change by now have only fidget a little bit but really
never change.

When the sadness fill me inside, I sit and stay there silently and let all the hurt
and frustration that swirl in my head and surround my body come out.
I talk to myself and sometime I burst into tears and I feel comfort.
I am human!!!

As I was writting these paragraphs, I received an email from my very dear friend Linda who, no matter what, is always there for me.
I appreciate each of our conversations so much, even if, at the end we both can no longer hold the phone.
I am so thankful for such amazing friendship from the botton of my heart THANK YOU!

Here is what the email said: "One of the many gifts that nature offers us is a clear demonstration of the interdependence between all living things. Earth is home to a web of living things that are connected to each other through a spinning kaleidoscope of relationships. We need each other to survive and thrive."

I have always thought this myself, for we are all connected on this planet but when I read the words, it was fantastic and it comforted my belief in human beings.

Here,  I played with  handmade ceramic beads from Petra

Kyanite, kyanite has always been one of my favorite stones. Seems like I have a bunch of favorite stones :).  It was so fun to turn these rustic kyanite into head pins. I made a pair of earrings with them, which I will share here or on Instagram soon.

Here are one pair of rainbow mystic titanium AB Quartz and two pairs of rainbow blue mystic titanium AB quartz crystal point rock pendant.  I even tried with MOP

Phantom quartz head pins, this stone is so beautiful and add a perfect rustic and tribal or even modern finish to any design.

After the simple pendant, I could not resist to turn the rainbow titanium AB quartz gemstone into head pins. I am kind of obsessed with head pins. :)

It was a long painful process due to my condition but I enjoyed making them with love and care!
I have protected each of the items that I made with renaissance wax so that it will be more durable and protected from the elements.

Like always, thank you so much for stopping by.  
Merci beaucoup 


  1. I completely relate to your words. The most difficult part of life seems to be our relationship with ourselves as well as with others. Life is always challenging.

    You are creating such stunning pieces Solange! It looks like you have been soldering headpins all along! Cool variety of materials you are working with. I too have many favorite stones. :) Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  2. They're all very beautiful Solange, Kyanite is one of my favorite stones too! "Earth is home to a web of living things that are connected to each other through a spinning kaleidoscope of relationships" ~ so true. Sometimes friendships dissolve, people go on separate paths, and that's okay. Don't let it get you down. Everythings happens for a reason. You meet new people, form new relations and learn new things that help you grow in the direction that you're supposed to. Jewelry making time is so therapeutic, isn't it? :))

    Stay inspired!
