Research Days and Stacking Rings

I love stacking up handmade rings... the textures and patterns the different shapes and details come together in layers interesting to the eye and joyous to the fingers and mind.  We remember each time and place from which our jewels were collected, the family, friend or lover who gave the rings and all our shared memories and dreams.  Handmade jewelry has soul, feelings and stories that emanate from the silver or gold and fill us with a sense of kinship, creativity and comfort. Reading days are the best days for piling on rings! 

Just sayin' ...

Back to the books!

Snowdays and Art Jewelry in the Studio

It is a winter wonderland in Durango Colorado which means excellent days for making in the studio! These are my favorites days carving in wax and creating new designs for the year... And it will be quite a year of the Red Monkey!  

Please enjoy this process picture of carving wax monkeys that will very soon be rings, pendants and earrings! And, stay tuned for updates and jewels to come! 

Happy Snowday!
