change of pace ~ can't help myself

I really miss getting dirty with my inks n paints... but something has come over me and working with wire and hand tools has been a refreshing change of pace. Taking hundreds of photos in my travels as always. I've also been hiking and snowshoeing with old and new friends (3x last week) I'll post a few highlights soon!

Ecclectic Jewelry

I have the opportunity to sell jewelry at my best friend's salon, located just 1/2 block from the green in our beautiful Village Center. There she displays 4-5 collections from local artisans ranging from larger scale fine art photography, blank photo greeting cards and a variety of handmade jewelry. I'm still working out a few of the creative details, such as

  • what style I'd like to focus on (or NOT since I have ecclectic taste!)
  • packaging
  • pricing
  • buying additional supplies

Most likely I will be offering a combination of styles using steel, silver, crystal & semiprecious stones as well as incorporating collage (no pics yet) in charm bracelets and pendants.

Moon Blue

"Moon blue, rivers of love you shine,
Bathe me in light sublime
Flood me with all your glowing heart can give
Moon blue, memories bind like chains
When will you come again
I wait in darkness just for your bright to beam.."
- Stevie Wonder Lyrics (songwriter N/A)
