There's Beauty...

For many years now I have had the wonderful opportunity and fortune to find the most beautiful pieces of vintage and antique rhinestone jewelry.  I absolutely love collecting these pieces, just as much as I love photographing them and using them in my art.
For a while though, I felt bad for loving these treasures and having such a wonderful collection of them, so I would put them in boxes, covered and away from my eyes view.  It was the strangest thing how that happened.  And I'm not really sure why I did it, or felt bad about my love for rhinestoned jewelry but I did, and I looked away from them for a long time.
And then one day it happened...as I was cleaning my studio I came across one of my boxes of treasured jewels and my heart melted all over again.  The beauty was mesmerizing to me and I was in love...
 I know there is a lot of sorrow in the world but there's also so much beauty in it...
And I feel that my heart has to bring forth the beauty from within me...
In my art...
In what I create...
In what my eyes perceive as beautiful..
In what I collect...
In what I surround my self with...
In all that I do...
There's Beauty....
Don't hide it...
Don't be ashamed...
Let it come forth from within...
There's Beauty.
