2020. What a year. Summed up with a single worry doll to represent all of us. The tradition is that when worrying keeps you awake, you tell your concerns to the doll, who then does the worrying for you, so you can sleep peacefully through the night. Worry dolls, also called trouble dolls; in Spanish, Muñeca quitapenaare are small, mostly hand-made dolls that originate from the indigenous people of Guatemala but are also found in Mexico. I created this piece on a day that I took off solely for the purpose of making something that needed to be released. A day of no news. Just a day of flowers and coffee and dogs and the chance to focus on something beautiful. While I had plenty of other colors with different flowers to work with, including more autumnal colors, I felt that there was so much warmth and power with the brighter pinks and vibrant green from the leaves, supported with crystal quartz. Quartz crystal is a power stone that’s prized as a healing stone. It is known as the most powerful healing stone of the mineral kingdom, able to work on any condition. It has been called the “Universal Crystal” because of its many uses and is beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection and channeling. Something we could all use a bit of.
