Sassafrass

She this girl here.....

....that is my cousin Cassandra. She is awesome, funny, witty, sarcastic, smart and beautiful. She is the youngest of 3 girls and has really developed her own personality. She has this hysterical way of really pushing her Moms buttons, but you can't help but love her once she gives you that smirk of hers. When she was little my Mom told her that she was found in the jungle and called her "Jungle Girl" for years. She is a shorty and even makes me feel tall! We share a love for photography and also share the belief that Brandon Boyd (the lead singer of Incubus) is a GOD. A beautiful man with an even more beautiful voice whose brown eyes are like pools.......oh wait....... this was about Cassie.

Cassie is a lot of things and on top of everything she is a artist. She paints and attempts to knit and recently has moved into jewelry and I was very surprised and VERY excited to be the recipient of 2 of her pieces. (Art and beauty seems to be surrounding me lately!)

Here is one of the necklaces she made.......




I KNOW! Its really big piece at almost 2 inches long and just gorgeous. I have worn it for the past 3 days. The Phi adores it and constantly asks me to borrow it.

Here is the second piece.....

Yes that is Brandon Boyd, lead singer of Incubus on a necklace. Cassie and I are just on the same wave length about certain things and Brandon is one of them. What I love about this piece, that you can't really see in the photo, is that there are clouds behind his head that give this piece so much depth.

Yes my cousin Cassie is one talented woman. I am trying to convince her to sell some of these creations. Maybe if she gets enough people asking for them she will do it!

Thanks again Sass (the oil to my water), I LOVE them and I LOVE you!
