Cosmos

Cosmos

I live in a microcosm

Feeling separate from the world.

Sitting in my garden

Among the quilted leaves of hostas,

And tiny lavender blooms of lemon thyme.

My best friend ever at my feet

Guard and greeter.

If I am still, this tiny world seems endless.

Living, moving, growing, singing.

Hundreds, really - thousands of lives around me.

Unknown to me.

I am unknown to them.

All are ever present.

I am nothing.

When I focus on this earth,

Lost in the sea of dirt.

Even when it’s beauty dazzles.

Temperance.

Infinitely Finite.

How do I reach beyond?

How do I truly grow?

Great Love

Great Love

I will be debuting this little collection June 11th and 12th at my first big show of the 2022 season, the Allentown Art Festival in Buffalo, NY. This collection has been a very long time coming. Over the years, I have wanted to create jewelry pieces of this nature, and people have often requested I make them as well, but it never really felt that simple or right to act upon at the time. I needed to move from a less hollow place to something more hallowed. It is not that my life was vacant of the spark of faith, more that I needed to align my heart completely; to create within it a disposition that is fully receptive to the great Love. I wanted to create these works with a true, complete prayerfulness and warmth of intent. These years that I have spent at home in the studio have given me the quiet space for the wonderful opportunity of discernment. Though I still have far to go, I now feel ready, humbled and grateful for the gift that is crafting these sacred symbols.  

I will not be formally listing these items on the website until after the show in Buffalo, it is too much work to create all of the photos and item descriptions in the hopes that they will quickly find homes with visitors at the show. I do however want to give you first choice, so please, if anyone is interested in a specific piece feel free to email me at adorncontact@yahoo.com and I will gladly share the specifics.  

If you miss out, no worries, I do plan on making more as time goes on! 

XOXO

Reaching

Reaching

Every day is learning 

How to speak again. 

The language lost in years wandering this world. 

Return to the wonder with soft eyes. 

Envision that which cannot be seen 

Dancing on the breeze  

Caressed by the leaves 

Waving in the painted sky dotted with stars. 

It all melts away 

Till it is nothing but breath. 

Slow 

Silent 

Sleep.
