Slowly Healing

Hi there, sorry it has been so long between posts. I've been making only small amounts of jewellery of late, and have been trialling my new light tent to take photos, with mixed results - it can get very dark at our place during winter so I finally gave in. The egg bead featured below is by the lovely Vero of Narrative - what a talented artist she is.

On a personal note, the loss of Main Coon Max cat three months ago left me with not a lot to say for a while blog wise- he might have "only been a cat" as non pet people say, but to my husband Kevin and I, he was a vital part of our lives, and we were not prepared to say goodbye after 4 short years. Sasha, Max's sister, still looks for him every day which is somewhat heart breaking. This all has resulted in a fairly low key frame of mind as we move through our grieving time - time heals, as they say, and we are slowly mending  thanks to the love of friends, family and the sweet nature of Sasha.

  1. oh that is so sad. i am sorry about Max!! I can totally relate to that loss. If my cat disappeared I would be so heartbroken. She is everything to me, the most spoiled cat ever.
    Hang in there.

    1. Thanks for your lovely words. I think Miss Sasha cat (and Max was) is one of the most indulged ever, but she is an angel so how can we help it... they are special creatures.

  2. The necklace is so elegant Vicki ! Thank you for creating such beautiful jewelry with my humble lampwork beads.

    How continue to live your everyday life without thinking of Max ? I know your sorrow, and be sure that my soul is with you.

    All my thoughts are with you, Kevin (and Sasha).

  5. Hugs, Vicki. The loss of Max is no small thing and grief is something that you will do in your own time.

  6. I'm so very sorry Vicki :( I'm a firm believer that pets should live forever and always be healthy, we shouldn't have to say goodbye to them...Thinking of you and your loss.

    1. thanks Mellisa, it is sad that they don't live as long as us - it is so hard saying goodbye - but we pet lovers cant live without them either.
