New Anne Choi Pieces...
I've been working so much that my eyes are starting to cross. As a way of treating myself and rewarding myself for all the work I've been doing recently, I picked up Anne Choi's latest mandrake bead! I adore her mandrake beads. This one reminds me of St. Sebastian. It has a Theodore Roethke quote on it that reads, "Truth never is undone, its shafts remain." She also included a preview of her new line – a two-sided sugar skull pendant.
Anne Choi is supremely talented and creates little works of art that bring me so much happiness. On particularly rough days, I take them out and go through my collection, reading the messages, remembering stories, and looking at and feeling the richly detailed carving – this relaxes me and puts me in a happy place.
