Simply Riveting

This weekend
I had a wonderful conversation with Merry-Lee Rae
 over a delicious slice of princess cake
We talked about many things from children to work and back.
It was all inspiring, all totally informing and wonderful to see that someone whose work 
I die over (she was wearing one of her pieces, and they are even more astounding in person)
is such a down-to-earth and good soul.

I look forward to the next time I see her luminous face!

In trying to express where I am in relationship to my craft
I said something about being a few words in to the sentence that would define my body of work someday
in retrospect.


It's as close as I've ever come to finding the right words for this middle place.

There is a glorious creative dangling carrot in front of me, these threads of a woven tapestry that are finding the language to explain their pattern


I am listening.

In the meantime, there is delight to be found in revisiting designs I adored making before
adding little flourishes and sweet spots that make the work feel new and fresh.


Three pairs of cleanly riveted natural wonders will be flying into 

if one of them belongs only to you, please feel free to reserve
them today

Wishing you mounds of joy and warmth on this chilly rainy Nor Cal day!

I love the wings! So delicate.

I adore these leafy winged ear adornments...Especially with their little silvery rivets!!I have yet to really hone my riveting skills, They tend to be kind of "wonky" but I really enjoy them anyway!
