Growing up in the soggy, green Northwest, you learn to yearn for two things....sunshine, of course, but also the rain. After weeks of dry weather, which I don't mind in the least, and an explosion of wildfires, I have spent the last month wishing and hoping for rain. Just a little. Just to bring down the smoke, dampen the ground, and put out some fires.
I am a water girl. I have a connection to water, and while I may loathe the gray skies of winter and spring, I welcome their raindrops. They water the plants, the trees, our earth and skin. Rain builds up the rivers nearby, that center me in their vastness.
I would wither in a desert.
I lovingly made each link of this necklace, connected and shaped them, while wishing for rain.
The Raindrop Necklace is available in my Etsy Shop.
