I have something for you,
bits of intention-filled loveliness that you surely deserve to grace that beautiful neck.
The last month has see my work become very architectural with so much heart going into the building of the metals and the elements that marry together...
pieces (both parts and whole) have felt like a recipe
for greater and specific healing.
I am taking off for a few weeks with the not-so-wee O for a trip to Minnesota
and time with the family there.
This break is SO crucial: I'd just exhausted myself finally after a whirlwind
and unusually long stay from the muse.
The thing is, new ideas are already beginning their haunting songs! Armed with a sketch book and time to myself (courtesy of my own mama)
I'll be able to order the raw materials
research the techniques
draw the components
This time feels like a gift before it's even begun.
There's something else that's pretty exciting:
I have entered the American Made Contest and there's quite a bit at stake, including ten thousand dollars for brand and business expansion. My heart beats faster just thinking of it...
won't you take the time to vote for me?
You can do so
up to six times a day for the next few weeks. It would make a tremendous difference in my world if I was recognized!
These Stars are truly shoulder dusters and yet they are light as a feather.
Hammered stars have been given a sense of place with texture from the concrete of this lovely century-old cottage I call home.
Jacaranda laurels cradle the sterling chain that is hung with sweet and beautiful vintage repurposed coral beads and a dot of chrysoprase green grounding.
Leave a comment to enter: I do moderate them, so know that even if you don't see it immediately it will show up when I get to check in.
Write to me about yourself, take a moment to share your light here!
As for American Made, vote daily up to six times and know that your time and care will absolutely make a difference.
From the bottom of my heart thank you for the amazing opportunity to serve you, to create and make with such big reciprocal love.
