PASSION - noun - a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something
When I was on the rollercoaster of emotions earlier this summer I realized that I had not been mending. By mending I mean, darning, stitching, and/or patching my well-worn, well-loved clothes. I have a PASSION for mending. I see mending as more than fixing worn-out clothes, I see it as an act of taking care of oneself and I hadn’t mended all summer.
One of the ways for me to find joy is to connect or re-connect and make time for my PASSION(s).
I chose this bright red Rosarita to hold the word PASSION. I think that if PASSION were a color it would be red, like a red-hot fire. The Rosarita is set in a 22ky gold bezel, backed with Sterling Silver, the pendant measures 1.75 inches long. It hangs on a 32 inch Sterling Silver chain. The chain has two linking 22ky gold teardrops.
The Rosarita “stone” is a glass-like material, slag (a by-product) from gold mining. It is reclaimed. I have a deep affinity for reclaiming (tangible and intangible). My hope with this piece is that it inspires you to reclaim your PASSION and give it the reverence that it deserves.
