There is nothing better then floating.

Daily Art Muse

It was serendipitous to meet Susan Lomuto.
She writes a beautiful, carefully curated blog on
"handcrafted excellence".
She walked into my shop and we had a great exchange. She was drawn to a piece of bark that was on display and I shared my process with her and showed her the ring it inspired. She had just scoured the beach on her retreat and collected
100s of pieces of the same bark!
See here the post she wrote about my work
and visit her blog often for more inspirations!
Thanks again Susan,
I am honored to be among your chosen!

Gold in Guilford

Thank you all for visiting us at the Guilford show!
It was a great show. Hot as usual!
I found some new artists for the shop and
we were happy and sad to see so many of the new gold pieces go!
Enjoy and see you next year!

I am loving these raw diamonds

I like the concept of raw diamonds,
such a precious thing but left raw.
The surprise, the juxtaposition.
This is a mobile pendant I did with forged sterling.

Letters to your kids

Just stumbled onto this blog. This Dad has written letters to his young children right after they were born to share with them as they get older. What a great idea. Check it out, he is hoping it will be contagious for you to do and share with the next generation... http://letterstomykids.org/
He writes, "This blog is drawn from journals I wrote for my two kids over the course of two years."
Every experienced parent says how fast they grow up, this is one way to capture those precious moments.

Just made these today.

This time of year it's always fun to mix shells and silver.
The materials are both light and airy and
keep you in the moment...Think beach.

Hope you have a sparkling day!
I always love the smell after the fireworks are gone...

vintage postcards

Gotta love Job Lot. Who would think you could find vintage postcards there? From Walt Whitman to James Dean to mailing a crocodile to ladies dancing in bird cages...What a fun find!
