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 […]

making good use of time.

sometimes the plumber has to pay a visit. sometimes leaks happen in that weird crawl space in the basement and i can’t fix it with the tool kit my dad gave me one christmas when i was in college (didn’t understand at the time what it was for– now, of course, i do). so the […]

a smaller version of the U bone necklace.

i can’t stop making this necklace– or wearing it for that matter! this little guy is a much smaller, more delicate version of the previously posted necklace. minimal in design, maximal in spirit! available in the shop.
