The earrings on the right were my first stab and combining CDC with Double Helix Psyche. I don't know how evident it is in the picture but there is a reaction on the CDC where the silver laden Psyche touches it that doesn't occur with DH Triton or silvered ivory. I call that neat. The central beads contain only CDC and Psyche. The border on the dark Psyche is the reaction from the CDC. It has to be melted in and superheated. Notice in the top photo and the vessel that it doesn't always do this.
I have missed working glass. There have been compensations, like losing 50 pounds through diet and time at the gymn. I hope to continue losing about 20 pounds to get back to my "feel good" weight, but the signs of diabetes that scared me, the blood clot that sidelined me and the limitations that my excess weight caused on my mobility are gone. I recently acheived a time on a mile "jogging" (more of a fast walk, really) that I haven't achieved since I was 15. Now I have to try to incorporate the things that I really like doing with the things that I need to stay healthy. I'll never achieve perfection, but all I ask for is a fighting go. I may even post a new profile picture if I can find someone who knows how to work my camera.
