Yesterday was Thursday, and Thursday is associated with Jupiter, making it a good day to create a healing talisman such as the ones in the picture-- the paper sketch from the book on the left, and my glass interpretation on the right. "They" say that the power of a talisman comes not simply from the symbols and marks upon it. Instead, the power comes from the faith and intent of the person who placed those symbols and marks. Do I know exactly where I place my faith? No, but I have faith in the fact that we all need some sort of faith. Do I have the intent to help someone in some way with these talismans? Yes, same as when I make my sculptures and hope they find the right home, hope they "speak" to someone in a way that somehow makes that person stronger.
Thanks for stopping by to visit with AngelinaBeadalina! I'm really just plain ol' Angie or Ang, but the catchy name does suit me in the sense that I'm a motormouth who loves to play with words almost as much as I love to play with glass! You can find me here at BeadArtists.org, in my Etsy shop, or in my daily blog. You can get links to those places at www.angelinabeadalina.com (click on it above). Please pardon the use of my "official" website as a traffic control signal at the moment-- at least, that's what it makes me think of when I look at it. . . lots of directions to other places where there are updates on a daily basis. Tech-stuff would not be one of those things that I love or that comes naturally to me ;) Well, enough rambling for now, come on in, look around. . . have fun exploring my glass experiments and ideas. Peace, Ang
