Nice! So begins the next Nice adventure. My airport test results are in and “thinking negative” never felt so good! The waiting was the hardest part but it was made easier by pre-paving my high expectations for the desired test result and good intentions for a great trip while adding jump rings to Nice boomerangs ready to be given as gifts in Egypt. My Eye of Ra / Eye of Horus amulet with the Burning Man symbol )'( hidden in the pupil was one of my first Burning Man gifts and another example of a secret hidden message in Nice jewelry designs. The sparkling amulet of the full moon with cow horns is of course, the magic pendant excavated by my childhood hero, Isis. Archeologist, science teacher and superhero, calling upon the powers of her amulet. She’s my inspiration for this particular nice adventure – and another key reason I’ve always believed jewelry is magic. Isis! 1976… My little hands were pressed against the tingling television set watching The Secrets of Isis, staring at her magic Amulet and dreaming of crafting a life of my own filled with magical jewelry and superpowers. Like Isis, I vowed to soar as the falcon, run as the gazelles and command the elements of sky and earth! I traipsed around the little woods behind our farmhouse looking for animals to save, problems to solve, and little crawling creatures to help along their way. I was a dedicated foe of evil and defender of the weak, champion of truth and justice! When I think about it now, maybe not that much has changed since then, except my ability to take my imagination and my physical being all the way around the globe to experience it all for myself. Isis, I’m coming for you! I am bringing my little trowel and paint brush to dig up a very Nice adventure and an amulet of my own!
