I had the pleasure of walking home from school (not in the rain) and had a chance to admire the changing leaves near my home in Seattle. Isn’t nature amazing! I promptly went home and made these Mexican Fire Opal Earrings mirroring the gorgeous oranges and yellows of the changing leaves.
I’m reading the book The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp as I prepare to go back to school for the first time in 10 years. I am excited and nervous all at the same time and find the book inspiring. All artists have moments in their lives where they find the creative energy fleeting. Lately I have become addicted to Pinterest and try to look at it every morning. I love having a place to share those inspirations. I look forward to sharing my new adventures with you here. Jewelry design here I come!
Neon isn’t just a distant childhood memory–it is swirling around all of us in the air . The element Neon is commercially extracted from the air for many uses; most popularly in neon signs. Yoko from The Examiner takes a fun look at neon in a more wearable form in this article on neon accessories. Thanks Yoko!
One of the most exciting things about making jewelry is looking for new and exotic stones. It still amazes me that nature creates such beauty. These stones are called Moss Amethyst and have washes of purples. If you’re looking for a gorgeous gift for a February birthday girl, look no further.
