What Is And What Should Never Be...

"What Is"...it's almost as if I've been on vacation...at least in my head I have...as I realized I haven't posted in quite a bit.  Still "spinning" occasionally, though so much better - I calmed the inner workings of my head long enough to finish up a necklace for myself the other day - yes, I am actually keeping something!  This is probably the final in what seems to have become a "Heather French Series" for me...or, at least for the time being.  So many ideas in this head - probably what's keeping me dizzy!

I will probably dub this my "Heavy Metal Necklace", as it is rather "weighty", having been set atop an antique, cut steel shoe buckle and backed with another antique button.  The entire pendant portion, sans the dangles, is approx. 2-3/8".  LOVE it - once again, thank you for some great creative motivation, Heather.
And since I finished it up yesterday, it seemed only fitting to wear it out to "Every Wednesday Girl's Night Out", last night.  I was holding my breath as this week could have actually turned out to be a "sacrilegious" experience for me - a Led Zeppelin tribute band (this would fall under the "What Should Never Be" part of my title - how do you top "Rock Gods" like Page and Plant?!  You don't!) Led Zepagain was the band - GREAT show put on by a very talented group of musicians, that has done their homework!  The acoustic set was pretty wonderful...if you get a chance to see, go!  Rock ON, boys - rock on!
..."And if I say to you tomorrow. Take my hand, child, come with me.
It's to a castle I will take you, where what's to be, they say will be"...What Is and What Should Never Be - Led Zeppelin

Love the necklace, so glad you're keeping it.
Led Zeppelin, is my Favorite by far. I saw them once, many years ago, in the 70's. The concert was in the smoke infested "Philadelphia Spectrum". I wish I could go back! LOL...Snif, Snif!!!Hee-Hee!!!

Ah yes, Led Zeppelin...they were my very first concert in 1974 at the Forum in LA.
Gotta "Whole Lotta Love"-em! Still have the little concert T-Shirt.
Necklace is simply, complexly beautiful!

Oh I was so happy to see the show and experience a bit of led zeppelin...I was not able to go see them in the 70's as I was 5 years old, hee-hee!!
It must have been amazing to see them live in person...the music really got to me, I am downloading some from itunes as I type! The necklace is so pretty and not too dainty and frilly, real nice substance to it. You looked great wearing it all decked out in lavendar!

Steve Z - if you happen back by, AMAZING guitar!!! Mr. Page is a rock god in my book, and you certainly did him proud! And very cool that you are in BOTH Which One's Pink AND Led Zepagain - the two top tribute bands we've seen this year.
