I don't have a lot for you guys this time, because we didn't do much but house visit. But here is the story.....T Small made some jewelry for Seveen, and sent it home by me my last trip to Jamaica couple weeks ago. My task was to mail it to Seveen stateside.

I was dragging my feet, and I think T was getting a little put out with me. She wanted the creations in Seveen's hands and to know that she was pleased.

I was dragging my feet because I was harboring a notion to deliver them in person.

Finally I had to tell them both, cause I was starting to feel kinda bad about it, but Monday I flew down and took Seveen her jewelry.

I had to go to her job from the airport, and let me show you the surroundings our girl is FORCED to work in.

See that bull statue...I had little Maya with me and she was merrily looking for just the right spot to use it when she looks up and sees the bull. She gave him her best yorkie growls and barks while lunging furiously at him and straining on the leash. Hilarious....funny thing was that thing never moved.

They had this sign posted that said DO NOT FEED THE FISH AND THE REPTILES. I asked the lady Seveen sent down to meet me "what reptiles?" Oh, she said casually, gators have been spotted in there....all I could think about was one eating Maya.

They let Seveen out of prison early and we went home to greet Abu from his first day in 8th grade, go to the grocery, and I cooked dinner.

Sheba and Maya made friends in the meantime.

Seveen repeats two things constantly....how shiny and beautiful Sheba is (and she is), and how tiny Maya is

She put her next to one of her pumps and took a picture to show you guys that Maya is not much bigger than her shoe.

We basically stayed at home, cooked, had some cocktails, tended to the doggies and the boy child, nothing fancy, just what sisters do when one needs a lift and the other can provide it.

This is Maya this morning all ready for the return home.

I don't know, I think my hectic life is starting to get to her

Thank you Marilyn! http://www.jamaicans.com/forums/images/smilies/70459-hugs.gif http://www.jamaicans.com/forums/images/smilies/70458-applaud.gif

I knew you would make sure she got the set, I never doubted that.

This was special and important, it was made especially for Seveen, each stone representing something to her life. So I have been waiting to see if she loved it as much as I loved making it for her.

I thank you again!

thank you tsmall

I had the joy of making the jewelry to send to you.

It is derived from sun, sea, sky and earth. I put all of these elements into it because together they create balance.

The sun is represented by honey jade.

The sea is represented by turquoise.

The sky is represented by are crystals and blue glass beads in several shades.

The earth is represented by brown goldstone and carnelian.

Both the earrings and pendent I made in two pieces so they have movement. The earrings will dance for you. The pendent will fall just at the top of your cleavage.

Each bead I place with love. Each bead I placed with your spirit in mind.
