for my first
i asked Leisl what she used to make it and what the stones were and she wrote:
'I honestly don't remember what metals the chains are — the pewter looking one is a "found" chain that I just liked the looks of. The stones are smoky quartz (metaphysical: calms panic attacks & anxiety) and lodolite (metaphysical: brings loving energies) and I made the head using polymer clay...'
in truth, the majority of the stones are purple-y in color and look like amethysts but hey, i'm no expert. but i'm so fucking honored, it's incredible. here's this chick i never met in meatspace, living thousands of miles away, and lo and behold, she sent me this beautiful necklace, sump'n for which was totally unasked. she went on to say:
'...When I make these things, I really don't have any sort of predetermined idea about any of them ... they just sort of make themselves. It's weird. I'm always quite surprised at what comes out when I'm done...'
AFAIC, the above 'graph's proof positive: Leisl's not only talented but she's a true artist. once again, many, many thanks — i'm so fuckin flattered i've forgotten to preen and knowing me, that shit should tell yiz an awful lot.
