When I'm in the process of making jewelry, I often create things that go unfinished for a little while. I guess you could call them jewelry in progress. Most of the time I know what they will turn out to be, but sometimes it's a surprise even to me!

Lately I've been watching a lot of Xena on netflix. (I tend to have movies or music playing while I work)
Anyway, back to Xena - I haven't seen this show in a long, LONG time. I was 12 or 13 years old when it was on tv, and I remember just loving this show to death. I idolized Xena's strength and beauty as a woman, the magical world she lived in, and the mythical and spiritual themes of the world. I don't really remember any plot specific elements of the story, so it's almost as if I'm watching it anew for the second time.

When I was a kid, I didn't really notice the campy acting/plot/characters, or the impossible and often silly fighting scenes. I still think this show has a good, strong core, though. I love Gabrielle and Xena's strong friendship, Xena's ability to kick everyones ass (even Ares the God of war). I also love the strong femininity of the show. It portrays women as... people. Not a girly girl and a manly man, or a butch girl and an effeminate male... it just portrays people as people, in the vast and complicated array they come in. (Yeah there's still stereotypes, but it's a tv show, what can you expect).
