the asymmetrical V necklace.

this necklace design came to me one day and i’m not exactly sure how or why. i don’t remember what i was thinking about, i don’t remember what i was looking at, and i certainly don’t remember what i was dreaming of. i just know that creating this angled piece was happening and it was […]

the linked migration bracelet.

i hear them first: feathers smacking air, a honk-call to their friends, a squeaky-creaky armpit joint working those wings like mad. i look up. there’s my squad, and right on time. they whiz past my head, glide in, and aim downward (much less graceful than the average, smaller bird, but that’s fine with me because […]

my own horizon.

i’ve been wanting to make this version of my birds in flight series for a while now. a landscape format featuring a single bird flying into the horizon…or from it? the story is yours for the making. sterling silver. available here.

flight earrings

i just love this shape—the softness of the curve is just the right complement for the angled arches of those darting little wings. an earring shape that doesn’t discriminate. go subtly but boldly, that’s what i say. here’s a little glimpse into the process: i cut each oblong shape by hand, texture them, and then […]

the spotted leaf necklace.

i pick up all kinds of things when i’m out on my strolls. most of the time they’re pretty ordinary objects: feathers, insect wings, tree bark, a rusted nail (i saved a tire!), and the occasional decaying leaf. i bring them home, show my husband (he laughs) and then carefully arrange the object in my […]

dot bangles: set of three.

i wear my bangles everyday. they are my tattoo, my trademark, my talismans. i wear them as reminders of friendships, of me in various stages of life, and of the highs and lows of time—some meaningful and some beautifully ordinary. i’ve treated myself to a select few, but most have been given to me by […]

layer cake: vintage brass pressing and leather necklace.

just feast your eyes on this layered diamond of royal hues! somehow this necklace manages to make a statement (as it is rather large) while maintaining an effortless appeal. it’s both modern and vintage. boldly feminine and unapologetic. i’ll take two. beware: this piece carries a rich weight. but it provides so many tactile features […]

oh the stories we will tell…

i’ve made a few of these story charms necklaces in the past and recently i’ve been called back to them. this time i’ve added a few extra details: a nest that offers a little more company and a tree that changes with the seasons. small references for your bigger picture. sterling silver, fine silver, brass. […]

the barely there feather ring.

this is my first hand-carved piece. it’s a whisper of a feather, an imprint, fossilized and preserved. i imagined that this tiny tuft drifted downwards, gliding on the waves of wind only to land simply and softly on this pool of red. the way the light plays with the color and relief of the carving […]

a portrait of three.

a portrait of three: cut through and riveted to a backing plaque for a landscape view. a quiet presence of striking simplicity. they are of tripps and triplets and threes and thirds. my favorite number. this ring can only bring good things. sterling silver. handmade from start to finish. one of a kind. size 7.25 […]
