I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


I've Grown New Wings


And let me tell you:
They feel good.
Real good.

Odonata Earrings
Built from these ten fingers of sterling silver and copper, asymmetrical, light as damselflies, bright as dragonflies.  The sterling lightly oxidized and brushed to a mellow glow while the copper, OH THE COPPER!, heavily patinated in a process that takes a full forty-eight hours to develop but results in the most gorgeous aged turquoise you've ever set sights on.

Forget the cup, I'M bubbling over!

I feel like I've just awoken from a hibernation, stretched my fingers wide and rolled my shoulders back to find a new set of wings, still wet, sprouting from my scapula.  I'm hovering, testing out the air.  And this grin, well it's wider than the seven seas combined.
