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!

Autumn in Colorado

It is gorgeous in Colorado this fall and I thought to share a few images of the land inspiring and infusing the new jewelry designs from our daily walks.

Happy Halloween and here's sending warmth on the cool days!
