Summer is quickly coming to a close with Labor Day just around the corner. I did not get to spend much time with the website. New items I created went to a local shop in a resort area that had requested to take them on consignment. It feels uniquely rewarding to have others enjoy the things I have done. I find the process of creating jewelry therapeutic as I have an injury that makes me physically uncomfortable most of the time, but when I am "in the zone" creatively it can override my consciousness of it. One of the reasons I began with natural stones was because of the metaphysical properties that some are thought to have to aid in healing and support various aspects of our being. I have found a few that were new to me to seem to have some of those properties. I am looking forward to the Fall season and using some of the rich colors that remind me of the changing foliage that will be around me, I have some amber and red agate that I find very beautiful and hope to be able to show you here on the website soon.
