Life is Raw, but Beautiful
I wrote a new post over on my current blog (now on my website). Felt compelled to share here. TIME was utterly precious and fleeting. It always is. But when you are acutely aware of the finite nature of the time you have left . . . you cling to those gossam...

Paleo Pony: My Journey Up the Mountain
I created this Paleo Pony ring as a memento marking the beginnings of my metalsmithing journey.  The horse motif nods to my Native American heritage as a symbol for "journey."  The chubby pony with short legs was inspired by my favorite cave paintings -- so...

Pond-ering Life
Single-celled organisms.  Some of the most simple forms of life -- and yet bursting with complexity, diversity, and wonder.  Like entire little universes within themselves. Let alone in a drop of pond water.  Paramecium Silver Labradorite Necklace These tin...

Things I Learned the Hard Way, Part 2: Suffering for My Art
Ok - So, I am usually pretty careful in the studio. I'm WAY more dangerous to myself in the kitchen. Let's just say that at least 1 out of 4 times I try to retrieve something from the oven, I will somehow singe my forearm, knuckle or wrist on a rack. Seriou...

My First Year Eating Allergen-Free: Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Soy-free, Egg-free
Where do I start?! I know you are used to coming to my blog for jewelry and photography posts. But I felt I needed to share a bit of the artist "behind-the-scenes." You are likely already familiar with the metal-addicted, gemstone-hoarding, creative-explori...
