Inspirational Nonsense!

I need to know!!! What is the deal with everyone lately stamping their jewelry (jewelry designers, that is), with all this inspirational nonsense!? On the back of a necklace the word "strength"- or "balance" - that seems to be a biggie! Or then there are the obvious- like "winter". it's a growing and extremely annoying trend!

I feel like making a line of jewelry and stamping things like "slightly anemic"- or maybe "irritable in the morning"- or things like "pudding" and "mac n cheese"- maybe I can have a whole line from appetizers through dessert!

For Gods sake! This whole new aged thing just cracks me up. People who usually cant even pronounce "spaghetti bolognese" are saying words like "Feng shui" all of a sudden.
And paying $300 for someone to come into their kitchen to discuss where the energy points are.
In my kitchen the energy points are the gas burner- the oven and the toaster. And they use a plug!!! And they cannot channel the spirit of a baker from 1760! And they wont cause me to be fruitful and multiply or anything else!

I even know someone who had one of those ridiculous consultants come into their house and advised them to keep their toilet seats closed so the good energy wont flush down the toilet! Honest to god! I usually keep them closed so the cats wont fall in- who knew I was being so spiritually healthy!!!

I just have no patience for all this crap! I sound a bit like Rosanne Rosadanna from the original Saturday night Live- if anyone remembers her!
Anyway... on another topic- did some majorly lovely rings yesterday. Here are a few pics. I am in a ring phase lately!

white topaz silver and 18 karat gold
gorgeous garnet and silver- with inspiration from Miss tammy!
not quite a ring- but made with rings- silver,gold and sapphire

rough diamond,gold and silver- another "not a ring"

So here is the top frive in the theme of inspirational crap!!

5 things I want to stamp on jewelry:

1.slightly anemic (yes, i repeat meself here)

2. need new bras

3. cranky

4. lamb chop

5. lost 5 pounds!

Off to Jerusalem tomorrow to look for old coins. Hopefully all quiet tomorrow. Last week was a bit hairy due to Hamas calling friday "day of Rage" and there were some small riots- hopefully tomorrow will be just "day of shopping". Wish me luck!!!
