Looking forward to see where the muses take me this year.

Looking forward to see where the muses take me this year.

The geese stayed on till the New Year, then promptly took to the sky.  Their calls echoed through the vacuous air which held no perceptible movement that day.  I too stood motionless, boots sinking into the earth with my eyes to the trees which communed in the hedgerow.  I wished to be like them, silent observers of time with roots firmly planted in the ground and fingers stretched to the sky, like a bridge between two realms.  A single star appeared in the evening blue, looked upon me and said "my dear you are as the trees, rooted in these few square miles."

So simple, so true, how had I been so blind to this Wisdom? In that brief yet eternal moment, the whisper soared above the birdsong.  The space of one breath contained generations of stories, mine was no different.  I have lived moments elsewhere, and written adventures which are wonderfully dear to me, yet what remains the most remarkable is all that has happened within these few square miles. This small measure of earth contains the fullness of a life well lived.  The joyful complexities and bittersweet moments of love compose this soft melody, filled with astonishing gifts of friendship and family, mentors and acquaintances and everyone in between.  This small life has witnessed great moments of growth, courage, trust, and faith.  What a beautiful forest of memory to walk through.  I am indeed like a tree, with my roots in this singular place.  It is here I have always been, and here I shall happily spend my finite days, quietly observing the infinite.

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.


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 and I will gladly share the specifics.  

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