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.

Why I Make Jewelry

Periodically, I get asked why I make jewelry. That’s not a simple question. The answer is many-faceted. (Get it, ‘faceted’? Well, I thought it was funny.) Let me try to explain.

Windows

Windows come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, materials, colors and functions. Some windows open from the top, some the bottom. Some open sided to side and some don’t open at all. Windows can be made from vinyl, wood, steel, aluminum and even brass.

Porcelain Jasper Inlaid Cuff

This is the cuff I made for the Beginning Inlay Video project. I’m very happy with it for a number of reasons. First, it’s always fun to have an idea in your head and when you finish the project, it looks WAY better than you ever could have imagined.

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.
