For our heroes!

I finally have some new designs that I will be listing on Etsy this week. After watching the Vancouver Winter Olympics on TV, and enjoying the amazing skills of all the athletes, the excitement of a win, and the despair of a loss, I was inspired to create a selection of jewelry, entirely in silver and gold. Here is the first item, a bracelet, that I will be listing in my shop this afternoon. I combined sterling silver, and vermeil ( gold plating over sterling silver) beads, with lampwork beads by USA artisan Melissa Rediger. So in honour of all the Olympic athletes, that entertained us for the past 17 days, this one is called "Heroes".

I, I wish you could swim

Like the dolphins

Like dolphins can swim


Though nothing, nothing will keep us together

We can beat them, forever and ever

Oh, we can be heroes just for one day


I, I will be King

And you, you will be Queen

Though nothing will drive them away

We can be heroes just for one day

We can be us just for one day


I, I can remember

(I remember)

Standing by the wall

(By the wall)

And the guns, shot above our heads

(Over our heads)

And we kissed, as though nothing could fall

(Nothing could fall)


And the shame, was on the other side

Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever

Then we could be heroes just for one day


We can be heroes

We can be heroes

We can be heroes just for one day

We can be heroes
