First: A trip to France
A month of roaming, taking classes in traditional jewelry making in a small French Village, getting into crazy situations in Paris and most importantly, eating amazing foods!
>>>>just now, i was trying to load travel photos and my camera battery died! more of those to come!
For now: NEW DESIGNS! This collection is really dear to me because some of the material I have used I have had for a year and the ideas I have had for several! I just kept giving up before I got very far. So, I learned that staying with something, seeing it through even when it is hard and may look horribly ugly, can produce magical results. (sort of a life metaphor huh?) These pieces have recycled Sari material, hemp cord, brass, gold fill chain and some sterling silver.
and...this is only the beginning. A collaboration with painted silk is underway, as well as tons of amazing sari silk pieces. I have decided a little more boldness and color is needed all around.
