Intricate

Firstly an intricate example from nature, the centre of a Cosmos flower.

Now a manufactured example, a Caithness Glass cufflink.

The photo really doesn’t do it justice so I’m adding a photo of a Caithness Glass ring, it was bought in about 1971 and they don’t seem to make them anymore.  If you click on the link it’ll take you to a video of a paperweight being made. The ring is made by “lampwork” I think. So here’s the photo of the ring, still not showing the true beauty but better than the cufflink, I hope.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”
