Thpring has Thprung!

Through the kitchen window all I see is a cotton candy cloud of pink jasmine. I've been waiting for this all winter long, such a joyful smell, a balloon for your heart...

Seedling and succulents from Tomales Bay

And beautiful copper and sterling things blooming in my studio!

I am taking reserves on the pieces for next week:
The Holding Bowl Ring has been claimed!

A Holding Bowl Ring with a lovely little piece of Kingman Mine Turquoise - this bowl is for your sadness.
For the tracks of your tears, for the tears of a clown:
full of unexpected details

and prayer.

The ring is somewhere around a size 10, need to get a better exact measurement, but my hands are weary - soon enough :)


For the wee of finger, I have crafted a chrysoprase copper blossom with sterling water droplets:
it looks so Irish!!

I think it came about from all of the Irish Breakfast Tea I'm drinking in the morning and the fact that I miss Liane, Seamus and Jimmy so much:
everyone needs a little brogue in their life!

This ring is right around a size 5.75.

Both have a heavy patina and gorgeous satin shine - There is so much heart in them, mine and the earth's.

I am procuring beautiful pieces for a shop refill scheduled for next Wednesday:
there are fern leaf earrings, two pair
wheat grass earrings
ocean jasper and mookaite necklaces
and a heaping helping of

Have an amazing weekend, dear friends!

LOVE the copper flower A, you know I do! Wish my fingers were smaller (plus my sterling chryso flower ring would be very jealous)...
Hope you are healing well :-)

So lovely Allison! Can I travel down from Vancouver and come sit on your garden bench? We could sit and eat cookies and drink homemade lemonade....

I love the little "bowl" rings. They remind me of tiny dolly dinner plates with a pretty little dinner and a colorful dessert. :o)
