Sum-Sum-Summertime!

Howdy Jewelry Fans! Can you feel the excitement?? The days have stretched themselves out like a lazy cat on a scratching post. Or maybe a warm weather nap in a box that's meant for Wyoming? This picture is really of my cat, Snow, The Inspector Primus. He seems to be enjoying his afternoon nap right in the middle of my work table.)  I've caught a whiff of sunscreen and have been daydreaming of pina coloadas and margaritas at a poolside bar next to a golden sand beach. YESSSSSS!!! And while I'm not a kid anymore (happily) and I don't get the summer off (sadly), I do get the opportunity to travel this great country and meet you, Jewelry Fans, in your hometowns all across this Great Land. 

By now my summer calendar is locked in and you can find the details right here. I've got so much new work to show you, and so much to tell you about in person. I hope you carve out sometime in your own busy lives to meet up with me, both at Art Festivals all around and on FB Live and Instagram Live. That's right, Jewelry Fans, I'm coming live to you from your small, pocket, super computer that we rarely use the phone app on. 

I'm taking recommendations on must see spots around the shows I'll be at (really, check the details HERE), as well as must go to restaurants, coffee shops and maybe nightlife spots. So fill me in!! No one knows your hometown better than you!! Hit me up on Instagram: @Margaret_OSJ and FB: @OriginalSinJewelry with your amazing, must do recommendations.

One more thing!! To celebrate the start of Summer last Friday, I launched a Fun Quiz! It's all about Road Tripping and what it means to you, Jewelry Fans. Check it out by clicking this link right here! I'd love to hear what your results are so share them on Instagram and FB too! All you have to do is click on the blue text (it's called a hyperlink, woah!)

Earth in Renewal: Consumerism vs Meaningful Consumption

Yup. That's right, Jewelry Fans, as of March 2019, our species has no redundancy, no planet to escape to should we screw this one up too far past breaking. Deep down, I don't believe humans will break the earth, but I worry we may come closer than we should before we learn that great windmills fastened to the deep sea beds off the bucolic cost of Cape Cod are more important than any bourgeois baron's view. I believe we can develop tidal electric power, where the great churning of the ocean can be harnessed to run my low wattage LED lights. I know we have the ingenuity to see it done, my future grand children are betting on it. And being in a line of work where my products, the jewelry I forge and weave by hand, is not a necessary product to live, like water, food, power, I'd like to believe the adornment of the body is necessary for the soul.

In the Navy I learned that a small course diversion has drastic impacts on the final destination. We performed “dead reckoning” every couple of hours to see how far off course we were. Ships naturally go off course. Unexpected currents, wind, steering gear discrepancies could have major impacts on getting where we were going. Humans naturally go off course.

As ever, I am humbled by the interconnected way our world turns. I am humbled by the many ways plants and people express themselves in the many lanes of life. I'm honored to be a part of the journey my Patrons have, crafting a piece you all wear for occasions large and small. In honor of several folks close to my heart, I'll be having an amazing promotion in the weeks leading up to Pride Week.  I want all of you to know, that we are all beautiful creations poking our tender sprouts into the light and we all deserve respect and love. Let's build bridges towards each other and comport ourselves in a way we can always look on with light. In this burgeoning season of renewal, I walk with a heart full of gratefulness.
