Happy Thankfulness:::

this little lovely is appropriately named
Tantric Priesttress, she has evolved through my growing collaboration with my extremely talented Sister; Debby Anderson
Debby created the pendant on this piece - the back has the lords prayer etched beautifully across it
   I added her to my draped bohemian chandelier necklace
the top chain is showcasing a Catholic Lourdes medallion
beautiful carved Mother with Baby with silver solder pendant
also created by Debby Anderson
all of these pieces are available for purchase, they are part of the collaborative collective named Kindred Spirits
