Saddle Up!

I find that the forces at work in and on my life have made me stronger. Stronger mentally, stronger spiritually, and they used to make me stronger physically. (Now they just make me want coffee…)

Who’s Your Tribe?

Humanity has long used symbols to convey meanings, thoughts, concepts and membership. When you see certain symbols, you know what group someone belongs to. A contemporary example is street gangs with colors and gang signs. It shows belonging. I once had a kid tell me he joined a gang because it was safer than his home… We’ll do anything to belong.

Make Mine Turquoise

I love turquoise. I want more turquoise. I love cutting and polishing it and making jewelry out of it. I’ve been fortunate to have had a couple of friends give me some turquoise over the course of the years, and that makes it very special.

Fun with a Copper Cuff

We had a fun time at the Bouncing Bead last Saturday making a copper cuff bracelet. Even though copper is a little harder to work with than silver, you can still get stunning results.

Baubles, Bangles and More Bangles

I love to make bangles. There are a lot of reasons for that. Each one is an individual piece of art yet they all work so well together. Bangles seem to be timeless. How many to wear or the thickness of each one changes with the whims of the fashion community. However, they never really go out of style.
