These are the rocks that are the subject of my attention tonight. And to be perfectly honest - I'm not sure that they are pleased about the whole idea. Sometimes you pick up a piece of glass or a stone and the piece makes itself. It's like it was just waiting for you to come along to put all the pieces together. Tonight while I was trying to work this piece I found myself thinking "How many years, possibly centuries have these rocks been in the ocean, washing back and forth and back and forth with no place to be but exactly where they were". Then I come along and decide that they are going to be picked up from the beach, brought to another country, fixed in silver and remain the same from now until.......
Am I over thinking things at the end of a very long week? Maybe, but I do believe that we create energy and receive energy from the pieces that are in our hands. I hope these rocks find that they are happy to be worn and loved.
I started my journey into jewelry making in 2005 while I was working in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, an area inundated with amazing artisans. I started with glass, which led to silver, which led to inlay, which led to joy.
