Beaded Water Droplets
Glass Beads, Nymo thread
DescriptionWater is Life. Water is Essential for like for all creations on Mother Earth. It is the responsibility of all to keep our water clean and healthy for everything to survive the delicate balance we call life. When we no longer have a healthy environment, the balance will shit and unfortunately some creations which reside on Mother Earth will perish. Whenever anyone is upset, crying is a form of coping with any loss or pain. Crying is also a way of releasing stress thus cleansing the soul. Mother Earth is shedding her tears as she realizes Earth is out of balance. As her rain of tears fall into the waters, Mother Earth is reviving the water cycle with hopes of healing herself. Every raindrop is different in size with various shades of color, but all raindrops collect to create the waters essential for all life on Mother Earth.
