The Unfolding Soldered Bezel Workshop with Cat KerrCat Kerr The Unfolding 2

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid air with no landing in sight,that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you are going,but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.” C JoyBell

I am still learning,still unfolding,but slowly as the days pass, the wind that carries us all, blows a mighty song. These pendants were inspired by this lesson.
