Erin Prais-Hintz’ Challenge of Music blog hop comes at an interesting time. I just found out that I am losing my hearing. I have genetic hearing loss, especially in my left ear, just like my dad and his brothers and sisters. It sucks! I was a Music Major for a time in college; music has been in my life from my very earliest memories. I sang in the choir, I played in the band.
Music was on the stereo all the time while I was growing up.
I loved listening to my mom’s favorite records. One of the pieces my mother would dance to around the living room was Johann Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz. Every time I heard it, my heart would leap, my spirit would soar. That is the piece of music I chose as my inspiration for this challenge.
The clear plastic tubing is filled with the same Czech glass beads that are wire-wrapped beneath.
The loops suspend silver wires with fresh-water pearls. The tube sits on the collar-bone and the beads and pearls move in synch like dancers around the ballroom.
