A while back I shared about this cross I created for my friend and client, Nancy. She had me engrave it with the word, ‘Possibility.’
Repurposing is often an emotional and nostalgic process, so as with all of my projects, we start by establishing connection – between me and the client, the client and their materials, the intention and the new piece.
While many of us are looking for ways to beat the summer heat, I like to remember that the sun’s power is an amazing way to recharge. How do you recharge your power? Share your sunshine!
I LOVE summer nights in L.A. There’s always so much to do and the weather is usually quite accommodating. I love the process of getting ready – deciding what to wear and how to style it. And then of course, my favorite part, accessorizing a.k.a. the jewelry. I’ve put together some looks for a few different date night options, all paired with pearls!
My father was a toolmaker. He was trained in Germany when CAD, computer-aided design, was in the distant future. So you can imagine his precision, no point in wondering where I get that from. But my dad also has a curious and playful side.
It’s almost summer but better late than never on my spring cleaning this year. Last month, I went through my mother’s jewelry box and it made me realize I needed to go through my own.
My mother is a huge jewelry fan and lover of beautiful things. When I was a child, I would try on her jewelry and makeup to pretend I was grown up enough to wear these treasures.
For the last few years, I have been cultivating more intention in all aspects of my life, including my work. I’ve always believed deeply in the power of adornment and the meaning we can create with precious possessions, but not that long ago, I started to open up to other ways of helping people create meaning in their lives.
I started experimenting with practices that are out of the ordinary for me to help refresh and cultivate my creativity. And then I thought, wouldn’t it be fantastic if you all joined me?
