Bodhi Leaf

I am so blessed! A little while ago, Erin, from Every Heart Crafts, hosted a give away of 6 of her porcelain Bodhi leaf pendants and I was one of those fortunate enough to receive one of them. Mine was here waiting for me on Sunday, after a bit of time away. Oh, and what a nice little package it was. Inside was my bohdi leaf pendant packaged up in a lovely little deep red bag with a wonderful description of the Budhist story of the Bohdi tree. Such a sweet treat!

And I just have to say, from a potter's view, this is just such a really well made piece. Just the right weight, lovely smooth finish, and a satiny glaze that is just perfect. In fact, I do not want to do any thing with it right now. It feels just too nice to be able to pick it up and hold in my hand. For now this little beauty is going to join my collection of Thai budhas.

I'm holding on to my Bodhi leaf, but you should have a look at what Erin has done with them. She has made some beautiful necklaces. Check her blog for the most recent creations. Each of her pieces have just enough and nothing more, so beautiful!

Thanks so much Erin!

Cheers, LeAnn

Hi LeAnn,
I have a little more leisure today and have checked out your complete blog. To my surprise, I found that you are also new at blogging, although I must say, you have gotten off to a wonderful start! What delighted me even more, was the fact that you have also started to blog in order to connect with people. This was my reason also.
I am looking forward to seeing your new project progress.
And I would like to thank you for your comment on my blog about the key hole piece. I'm a bit stuck on the design at the moment, but please check back on my progress.
Have a wonderful day!
