self-portraits inspired by Helly's beautiful necklace

spindell is gave me the amazing gift of this necklace a while ago, but I didn't post about receiving it because I wanted to wait until I had photos. (even though I was SO thrilled and wore it every day for like a week) So when I began taking this series I had just wanted to show what it looked like on me, but as I continued to shoot, the photos grew more and more personal. They show, increasingly, the emotions I have been through lately. I am stunned by how honest they are and I am incredibly grateful to spindell, for the beautiful gift she gave me that inspired this journey in myself.

This is the most excited I have ever gotten over my own creations (oh no, devArt has me addicted to emoticons! )

you can click on any of them to go to devArt for a description.

unfurling new leaves

My strength is that of a tree; I bend and parts of me sometimes break -- but after the storm has passed, I determinedly unfurl new leaves and keep right on growing.
