Sketchbook on a Monday!

You didn't think I was going to leave you to wait a whole week to find out what was on the horizon did you?

"Suddenly, on the horizon, a shimmering diorama of feldspar, mica and quartz settled on a golden line of silica."


Can you figure out where she is?

The first verse of the 'Hope' poem by Emily Dickinson has become grafted into my consciousness.  I turn it over and over and have sketched out many possibilities for a new necklace with these words in mind.  You might have noticed the little boat in yesterday's post paid homage to this beautiful collection of words.  I have made my own copy.  It now rests amongst my wooden letterpress blocks.
