Blizzard?

That's what the man said. I can't say I've ever been in anything even remotely called a "blizzard" before; but the man on the news did use that term tonight. "All of New York City will be under blizzard alert until 6am tomorrow morning." Really now? Granted, I haven't stepped outside today, but the view from my window hardly seems "blizzard" like. Yes, there's lots of snow, and yes, I don't think it's stopped since I woke up, but I don't think the accumulation in my backyard is even a foot deep. In my mind, blizzards are things you get lost in while running, yelling, looking for your runaway horse, Wildfire.

Onto the thematic etsy plugging. So, let's see what we find when we search "blizzard" on etsy, anyway.

I can't even say exactly what it is about this piece that made me stop. Simplicity, when done well, can be amazingly elegant. That would be my best guess. This piece is simple, but beautifully so, maybe like that sheet of white outside. This piece is by Faerie Glass, and is made of stained glass and lead-free silver solder.

She has a few other pendants in the exact same design but with different colored pieces of stained glass, as well as many other designs of stained glass jewelry. Very much worth the browse!

love the pendant! what a beautiful line...

We had a blizzard in Oklahoma, in December, and the snow was flying horizontal... you could hardly see. AND I lost my power! All the years growing up in Jersey, don't remember that! Here's hoping you don't have a blizzard! {:-D

The pendant is beautiful.

I can't say that this Texan has ever been in a blizzard--hurricanes are enough for me. But the weatherman told us repeatedly last night to be aware of our 100% chance of snowy weather today. Ha! Nothing but rain.

Thank you so much for the honor of featuring my Frosty Swirl Pendant on your lovely blog! Here in Portland Maine, we've managed to stay out of the blizzard's path so far:-)

Stay warm,
Maria
