Full Moon 2018
This year has been off to an amazing start with 2 full moons! Pictured above is a piece I designed many moons ago and still create. It's called Full Moon Dance. All the pieces move back and forth on the horizontal shaft and delicately balance vertically like birds on a wire. The hammered surface of the pieces have texture and irregularity like the shapes and phases of the moon. The finish is oxidized silver playing with the shadows and light.

|Sheild Pendant and Necklace by Dina Varano|
I have so much fun making marks and transforming metal. In this digital world, I find the tactile and the hand made essential. At the moment, everyone likes to know where their food comes from. I feel it is the same with jewelry. To know someone spent time and care on each piece, seeing and feeling the mark of the artist's intentional hand tells a story. Like a quilt, jewelry can be passed down through the years, having longevity and integrity.

Opening Celebration! Join us at the gallery on Friday, April 7th from 5-8 pm. Talisman
Here are some new pieces for the Talisman Collection. It's been so fun to create these and watch everyone find the piece that speaks to them. Each necklace is a thoughtful composition of symbolic elements and carefully chosen stones. The collection is inspired by the traditional significance of Talismans and their purpose and ability to invoke inspiration and to provide protection for the wearer.
Each necklace is accompanied by an original ink drawing.

Thích Nhất Hạnh
I love this hand drawn quote by Thich Nhat Hanh. I always like to visit it on display at ABC Carpet in NYC. Time to breathe and bring clarity to your mind. This is one of my goals for this new year.

Looking through old journals
I love looking through old journals. It takes me back to a place and time. And I always find something inspiring, or a little reminder I need.

My first Morning Glory
I've always loved morning glories. This is my first planting. It was so exciting to see it crawl up so fast, attach itself to whatever was close, climb up, head towards the sun and produce this delicate flower. Simple pleasure.

Happy Mother's Day
The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.
