When I was younger I used to have a very good friend who since has passed away.
She had once given me this beautiful amethyst as a gift and I've held onto it for almost 2 decades.
When I received it, it was glued to a mirror base and had a little silver bear walking along the top of it. Since then the mirror has fallen off and the bear disappeared thought out all my travels- leaving me with this beautiful stone which I have never been able to part with because who had given it to me.
The other day I was looking for something and I came across it; in my wooden trunk, in a shoe box of old school notes and photos. I never really displayed it, the base was not balanced because it had a whole bunch of glue stuck to the bottom of it, where the mirror base once was.
As I admired its beauty, I got thinking. I loved this lady and think of her so often.....why is it in a box? I've held onto the stone for so long, it seemed a waste for me to hide it back where I had found it.
So I took it into the studio and as I worked on some projects, I kept looking at it and I kept getting a feeling like I needed to do something with this amethyst.
I created this podium, an alter, a stand for this beautiful stone to honour this woman who meant so much to me.
This stone is now standing tall on my work bench. I can see it everyday and remember this lovely lady, my friend.
This amethyst is now balance and happy in it new home.
