Delicate Cycle III


Discarded Heart:
Minneapolis autumn leaf, peridot, iolite and cream enameled copper volcano.

Iolite bee wing necklace

Citrine Jacaranda Leaf necklace

Simple Maidenhair Fern Necklace

Torn Dragonfly wing with iolite

There is an epic shift in my head involving my work...a leap is imminent.
I cannot sleep
I forget to eat
the only priorities are care of my family
and interpreting these God whispers
that come...

This delicate cycle I was most interested in the tattered and torn: the shape of the dragonfly wing is exactly how it was offered to me. The rips and jaggedness speak of life and ultimately death.
I wonder how long the tiny beastie lived with these little badges of honor, these marks of survival.
They remind me of the pocked ears of neighborhood tomcats I love.

It seems the perfect season to add a tiny watercolor dot of gemstone pigment to the work...days grow ever shorter and more dim here. I hang on to the last light of day like a kite.

I am taking reserves for these pieces


What does not get scooped lovingly into pretty palms will be available
this weekend when there's a second to list.

I hope you have a wonderful day filled with abundance and shearling warmth.

With love,

Who knew a torn wing could be even more beautiful than a 'perfect' one. You've captured its essence in this piece :)

Caitlin: isn't it something how the 'decay' or tattered-nes of it is perfect in its shape? Thank you for the kind words!! xoxo

These are wonderful! And I know that feeling.

I miss it.

Sybil...I will be here whispering in your ear, "Mug...mug...mug!" ;) xoxoxo

Delicate is the perfect word...I shall be wandering about all day coveting a rolling mill! Beautiful all, but I like the dragonfly wing the best.
