They say hope is the thing with feathers but I would be hard pressed not to argue
that there are other things that feathered be.
It is truly in flight right now, riding warm currents and making me crane my neck to catch sight.
Dragonfly and Scrubjay feather earrings with repurposed vintage coral rounds
Is that why feathers are the sum of my work of late? Wings?
In wearing them, in touching them will I somehow catch up to the quick hours?
With Feathers Necklace, sterling scrubjay feather with gem chrysporase
In working with plumes there is a sense of connection with the present in a rich way...
gifts left for me in the backyard, parcels from afar.
Packages of wings from family and friends who know I am always on the lookout for dead bugs...
it's a role I never thought I'd play, the woman to whom people send dead things.
I like it very much, though. I am honoring things that would otherwise get swept up, brittle and empty containers of nothing.
Mostly of late my heart is the thing with feathers, flying alongside the ever-quicker footsteps of a blonde cherub. I love him so much it hurts.
With these beautiful pieces I will be tucking "A Little Grace" petal necklace into the shop this evening.
