Believing in Butterflies: A Second Pathway to Dreams

Howdy Jewelry Fans! As we schlog through March, weather exploding around us, a steady stream of epic rain and snow storms sweeping into Cali and East, there's an impatience in the air. Could it just be over?? When is the sunshine coming back? The volatile energy and impatience reflects an interesting parallel to my feelings surrounding goals and dreams.

I feel an explosive focus of intention, an impatience with my steady march towards a place or idea that seems so close. I plan this garden patch of intentions and work the soil to let my dreams flourish. And then a dream I didn't even know to dream opened it's beautiful wings inside the construct of my life, a butterfly floating into my vision. The beauty of this vision so breathtaking, I couldn't even have imagined it. This month, March, in the midst of my steady gardening, my digging for my dreams (which is also the title of a lovely Indigo Girls song), I'm reminded to take time to look up from my patch of soil and see what soars above me. All goals are not bound to the earth and the soil, they can indeed flutter by like the whisper of light, color and song that lights a fire in your heart. I'm reminded to acknowledge the second pathway of dreaming. I must expand the container of my dreams.

Oh Jewelry Fans!! Can you tell I might be floating, grateful and tethered to a spirit that is lifting me into the realm of high frequency??

You see, I've scheduled a local designer trunk show at the Fashion Valley Nordstrom here in San Diego. The event is Saturday, March 30th from 10am - 3pm. You can find me up the escalator on the second floor of this highly sophisticated, thoughtfully curated retail legend. I'll be selling my work to patrons of one of my favorite aspirational department stores. Truly, a beautiful butterfly of a dream I'm holding tenderly in my aging, work calloused hands. I'll try to have clean fingernails for the event, but polishing the pretties may not allow that to happen.

Join me, Jewelry Fans, won't you?

I'm looking forward to meeting you in my floating dream.

Join OSJ and Take the Plastic Pledge

September 26, 2019

Howdy Jewelry Fans! The season has changed and many of us are tucking away our sunscreen for next year (although those of us in the South and Southwest have a bit more sun time on the clock). Does the beach linger in your mind as we slide into the reaping season? The endless churning of potential and actual, the edge of static and emotive, I’ve always loved to walk along the shore, finding life a balance of the future on the horizon and the amazing, beautiful mess of chaos at my feet all along the shore. I’m often stuffing my pockets with objects, transformed in the depths of the ocean and the edge of civilization.  They’re secret treasures, their transformation to something else a reality of my journey through life.

I love the Ocean. The Lakes. The Rivers. The tiny bubbling Streams crossing properties and terra all around this great planet of ours. During my Navy days, haze gray and underway was always a soothing constant of change and routine, mission and sacrifice. I’m lucky to have seen dolphins playing in the bow wake of sailboat, cruiser, frigate and amphib. I’ve been in the middle of the Oceans of Earth where nary a light could be found, where humans mattered not to the towering 40ft waves of a northern Atlantic Storm. In these ways, I learned that we, humans, matter little to the churning waters of our planet.

What Up, Gold? (Layperson's Guide to Karat, Vermeil and Filled)

Let's get Nerdy for a bit, shall we? As I've been working with more Gold, I find myself talking about the karat, purity, strength, color and attributes of the different types of Gold in Original Sin Jewelry's Collections at shows. Since my website is a 24 hours a day, 365 (and 1/4) days a year show, it makes sense to talk about it here too. Right?
