"Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better." --Emile Coue.

Yesterday we went back to the gem show. I love stones. Every year this show is my opportunity to treat myself. Jade is a soothing stone and promotes balance, harmony, prosperity and happiness. Simply holding jade brings on those feelings for me. This year I decided to treat myself to this jade necklace. The weight reminds me to stay positive and the hand-carved beads will (hopefully) keep me focused on creativity and creating.

I would like to know what the carving on each bead represents. So far, I haven't been able to figure them out. Tonight may be Chinese Buffet night (so we can get a translation).

Sitting outside the gem show, these bricks caught my attention with their ancient hieroglyphic-like appearance.
