Millimeter by tiny millimeter the graver cuts through the sterling silver
creating the picture of something beloved:
This piece was inspired by the tiny babbling koi pond that sat right outside the window of our farm stay on the Hamakua Coast on the Big Island:
the weather was chilly, and the fish huddled under a lily pad
tails undulating with the tiny wind-blown currents of their home.
Engraving little pieces of Hawaii is my way of
sharing the energy of the island with those who take home the pieces I craft.
Just as delightful as the finned friend
is the cut of Agua Nueva Agate partnered in this necklace:
orange and yellow as a sunset (so difficult to capture in the chilly light of winter)
with lavender banding and a hint of parallax in the lower right hand corner.
You can reserve this piece if you wish with a simple
in the Metal Shop
And if no one claims her, I will list sometime this evening
or tomorrow morning.
With love from California,
