A Bottle for Jacquie...

Hi Everyone,

In my last posting I wrote about Sheldon, a nephew of Renee. This morning I spent some time making a bottle for Renee's sister, Jacquie.

I've used the Ponsawan style for the bottle as I figure Jacquie will have many times in the near future where she won't have an attention span long enough for anything in particular. This bottle with give her a few seconds of diversion here and there.

Jacquie's favourite colours are olive greens, browns, and earth tones. The clay came out a bit more gold than I would have liked, so I tried to add greens in accents and in the beads that are in the bottles.

There are some tiger eye gemstone beads and jasper gemstone beads in the bottle. Tiger Eye is said to protect against the Evil Eye and to bring clear and calming insight to the user. Jasper is said to be a strong protection gemstone, to help prevail against hazards in the night, and to help balance the energies in the body. I added these stones only because they looked nice and I've had to look up the properties after the BOH was created, but I did think that since Jacquie liked earth tones that something of the earth should be included.

It's a little rustic in feel, but sometimes imperfections are part of the charm.

As usual, the Sarah McM CD was playing in the background so Renee's spirit is infused in the bottle.

And I've added some of the tinted flakes that I've posted about earlier.

I'll get the bottles in the mail today and use expedited post so that Renee's family can receive them as soon as possible.
