CROSSING THE OCEAN
The piece has been finished and tonight it is flying across the ocean to Wisconsin, USA with FedEx special delivery. Here is how it came out, set with a 3 mm sapphire and black spinel.
I was also fortunate enough to find out the story behind this inspired piece…
My boyfriend and I met about a 1-1/2 years ago and there was a connection like none other. On our second date he asked me to be his girlfriend and of course I said yes. He posted that picture of the two owls on his facebook page with a simple Yes!!! under it. I had no idea what that meant until he explained something to me about owls. He said an owl looks long and hard for its perfect mate and when it finds it, it is forever. Hence the significance of the owls. We both feel a strong connection to the Oriental culture and the balance between yin and yang (he and I). We believe that we met in a previous life, he as a samurai and me as a geisha. In fact I had another artist on Etsy create an ink painting of our first encounter that I had a vision of (I attached the picture). So all this ties together the symbols of eternal love on the Pendant and the engraving on the back, “In this lifetime and all others, I will always love you.”
Received the package today and it is absolutely beautiful! My boyfriend will love it! I can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful piece. You’ve captured everything that I was looking for!
