Words to Consider

  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

I LOVE this piece. I am drawn to the Dark Side ~lol~ If I had seen that face, I'd have grabbed it up. Sculpted Windows is my favorite face place unless I'm making my own.



Each of your beaded pieces is so unique & beautiful! Like Carol, I tend to appreciate the dark side (at least in art - LOL!) After all, I'm the nut who, some years back, made 4 challenge ATCs where we had to represent one color in each (I chose RED, of course) and focused on - who ELSE? - Lizzie Borden. So your lovely piece really appeals to me!

Well, I have to say I see a tree growing from one side of the face, with the roses being the fruits of that tree and the black is soil that is nurturing the face (Soul)...the "soil" looks rich and fertile. The butterfly and the bee only encourage my interpretation, as nature flourishing around the soil and tree.
However one looks at this is great.
love the bee and butterfly!


Oh this is beautiful, Love it! The symbolism is great and oh my that face cab is wonderful... great beadwork too! Just all around a nice nice piece. Like Carol... I'm drawn to a darker side, this work is a wonderful representation.

Death is a difficult subject, even when the reference is to the long distant past. I like the way you've carried the myth throughout the piece. I'm dealing a little with death right now, so this is a compelling piece for me to see. I'm drawn into it and find it oddly calm and peaceful. Thanks for exploring this subject, Anita!

Wow it is amazing!
