Thank you for your email. Please understand if it takes a few to get back to you. 



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.


A Case of the Blues


And mints, and teals, and chocolates 
or so it seems.
Chromaphilliac Conquistador Rings
Chromaphilliac Conquistador Rings
For the conquerors of color!
For the collectors of treasures lost and found!
For those who write their history and wear it too!

These rings feel simultaneously modern and ancient.  They are exactly the sort of thing I would wear while scouting uncharted territories on newly discovered continents, as well as while tipping back a Hendrick's martini in a swank speak-easy bar in blue velvet heels.  Heft and color and HISTORY all wrapped up in one little package!
Ten Thousand Small Histories No. 5

Ten Thousand Histories No. 5
These four bits of pottery literally arranged themselves!  Cobalt blue chevrons, creamy crackled glaze and milky turquoise?  Truly, is there anything left to say?

I've updated the shop with these beauties, so you can find more about them there!

In other news:
The puppies have managed to put one perfectly shaped muddy paw print on my clean pants.  Freyja is so big these days I'm not even sure who the guilty paw belongs to!
BC and I celebrated Valentine's Day last night with a royally divine dinner out.  It was the first time in our ten years of marriage we've been out on the actual day!  It was PERFECT and I'm still a bit stuffed.
I'm leaving long before the crack of dawn tomorrow for a rather spontaneous trip North to the land of gray skies and cappuccinos.  I'll be bringing a pair of maroon leather heels AND my trusty hiking boots. How's that for fulling my dual personas?

Cheers Birds!
