I just read your post from yesterday, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your grandmother sounds like she was a remarkable person, flaws and all. I'm glad that creation can come through your grieving process.

you did a beautiful job! the surge of emotions found a wonderful outlet... so very sorry about your grandmother gaea... i think that human relationships can be so complex... there are probably very few that we don't have some mixed feelings about... afterall you can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family... but we do the best we can to be loving and understanding... right?

I am so sorry to hear of this sad news. It is never the right time to lose someone we love, even if we are not always on the best terms. It sounds as if you have channeled your grief into a beautiful release. These are lovely. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Enjoy the day!

My grandmother loved to paint so it feels really natural to get creative right now. She would have loved to hear about the process of working with the metal clay.

So sorry to hear about the passing of your grandmother. I had a bout of creativity when my dad passed that ended up leading to a whole new line of jewelry for me - I think it's a great outlet for our emotions and a wonderful way to honor the memories of those we love.
