Someone once asked Einstein what the difference was between him and the average person. He replied that when asked to find a needle in a haystack the average person stops upon finding the needle but he (Einstein) would keep looking even after finding the needle. I'm no Einstein, but I do share the "keep looking" trait when creating I am never so satisfied with the project that I produce it over and over, but keep looking forward to improving and/or reinventing it.

Sometimes like with this piece I started it a few months ago and then stopped because I knew it needed "something" but couldn't decide what that "something" was. Then I came across a raw cluster of amethyst crystals and went back to finish the piece using a single beautiful crystal as the top focal piece. The crystal's top is pointing up and the bottom is open to the inside of the jar so it will focus energy from within the jar to the outside or the jar, or maybe it's the other way around. (I don't know because I am just the laborer and the brains is the piece itself).
