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 […]

crossed arrows necklace.

directions have never been my forte. i have no sense for it, really. that thing in your ear that keeps you standing upright and not vertigo-ed out of your mind—the vestibular system, apparently—yeah, i have that. but not the direction-sensing part. when i was learning to drive my dad always emphasized the importance of going […]
