"Live out your joy in this moment."
That's a lot to think about.
So while I amble along in my own head, I thought I'd share a couple newly finished pieces with you.
(sterling silver, turquoise)
We have so much to learn, so far to go, but I tell you this: there is no label strong enough to hold you down, there is no box great enough to constrain your spirit.
I'm far, far from arriving at my own true center, but this journey is right where I want to be. I made this ring last week; sawed, filed, created a relief, imprinted a sheet, soldered, polished and patinated her with a one-hundred percent intent of keeping her for myself. But all weekend I've had this little knot bugging me, telling me she actually belongs to someone else. I tried to ignore it, but I know better: art will find a way to arrive to the exact person who needs to see it.
(If she calls your name, you can find her in the shop)
Namasté my friends!
Be well in your souls!
