One of the nicest things about my recent show
was I was able to exhibit my drawings.
Everyone gave me such great feed back and that
inspires me to get back to the drawing board!
I decided to hang them up in my store for a while.
Drawing is one of my favorite things to do. It is so loose and free.
I always try to make time to draw, sketch or doodle.
Someday I'll have a show in a room filled with lots of sketch books.

Shell Series

This new line was launched at lunch at
the River Tavern on Saturday.
A wonderful afternoon in a beautiful, intimate setting....
Great food, great company, lots of laughs, drawings, inspirations,
new work, ladies trying on new jewels, wine,
a memorable afternoon....
It was so much fun, we will do it again!
I promise to post some pictures up soon.
Thank you all for making it such a special afternoon.
I feel so lucky to be able to make jewelry
to pass it on to you to enjoy!

My Scarlett

It's hard to express how I feel today.
4 years ago at about 9am, out came Scarlett.
The most exciting, exhilirating and amazing moment.
That moment is turning into a lifetime.
We will have that connection for ever.

I love you so much Scarlett,
as we say,
from here to the moon and back!

Mornin' at the Joplin's

Our friends visiting.
These 3 have been here for days.
Sometimes, we see dozens. The funniest thing
is when they walk up the driveway in a row.

Marsh Grass

I have always been inspired by nature.
Lately, I decided to use it more directly.
I made this necklace by pressing the
marsh grass right into the sterling.

Jewelry and Shadows

These photos were taken from an exhibit I had where I hung my
jewelry away from the wall and lit it, so the shadows would
dance as the pieces moved. As you can see, some of the
shadows are so delicate they look like line drawings.

Happy 40th Moe!

Dear Moe, I can't believe I've known you since
we were 15
and now we are 40!
I have to say, I've never seen you as happy as you are now.
May all of your wishes and dreams still keep coming true! Here is to all of the great times we have had together and
for all of the great times we will have together,
especially on this celebratory year!
Lots of Love, Dina
