the beginning…

i’ve been forging bones and shaping dreams. sometimes i let my hands do the talking. i sit at my bench and wait for my fingers to establish the pulse of imagination. a beat of hammers, a pattern of shapes, a flow of thought. and when i reawaken to the sight of surrender’s face, i see […]

give it your best.

i can’t help but smile every time i look at this necklace. i’ve had it laid out on a little, wooden, checkered table that has become a holding area of sorts for some of my finished pieces—work that i’m not yet ready to bundle up and set aside while they await their future homes. these […]
