Twin bird skulls (my Wright's Beach skull)
frame a juicy, pomegranate carnelian cabochon
set in fine silver and copper
stitched in to warm toffee colored leather
and soft as a silk saffron lamb suede.
reads the stamped inscription inside.
That phrase can mean anything from
finding new life in religion
to discovering untapped reserves of strength within
recovering from trauma
relinquishing attempts at control
or just simply rising again with the morning sun,
grateful and exuberant.
There is something autumnal about the coloration
but season-less is the subject matter:
death and rebirth are a favorite subject in my studio,
a necessity in the growth of a soul
and the history of earth.
This half-belt measures 28.5 inches ring end to ring end
and looks fabulous strung with a scarf:
Rich in tender touches,
this is an heirloom piece
for a woman who knows the joy of
from slumbers both physical and spiritual.
