Solar Consciousness

As an artist, I move around in different disciplines and mediums. I often think in terms of total concept, from design to the end result and presentation. With lots of time on my hands (for some reason), I decided to delve into designs I have made in the last year and give them a better […]

Kind of Blue

I have been gradually working on new designs since the shelter in place order came about, here in Los Angeles. One of them is the Comet pendant, which is made of sterling silver and copper. It features a sunstone cabochon that’s been bezel-set. The tail of the comet has black spinel, brilliant-cut, accent stones, that […]

Some New Rings

The rush is on to get gifts in time for the holidays. I heard over the past year from customers that they would like me to offer some smaller sized rings. So, I finally got around to making and listing them. More are in progress but I thought I should share these with you, in […]

The Panoramic View

Here we are, the first week of December already evaporating before our eyes. Is it just me or is time moving faster? Is a week now like a day? This year has been one of learning for me. Often, challenging in its ways, and hard to determine at times if I was making any progress. […]

We Deserve Good Things

I’m running a 10% off sale in my Etsy shop from now until December 2, 2019. Use the code IDESERVETHIS at checkout. When I look back at this year, I am shocked to see progress. While I was living through it, it felt like slow-motion running, in a dream. I would often, at night, wonder […]

What’s New?

I just finished my second Renegade Craft Fair in Los Angeles, held last weekend in LA State Historic Park. I had made a lot of new things for the event since I am never sure what the mood is going to be each time I sell in person. Sometimes, everyone wants rings. Sometimes, its all […]

Sneak Peek

I’m busy getting some new pieces finished for next weekend’s Renegade L.A. held in L.A. State Historic Park. I work very slowly, so it can take me a year (or longer) before I actually turn a drawing into a piece of jewelry. Often, I’m uncertain if anyone will like what I’m thinking about, but then […]

All these and much more will be at the Pasadena Arts and Crafts Show this Thursday through Sunday at the Hilton Pasadena. For more information visit www.artsandcraftsshow.com.

Plant Care

On a recent visit to my Los Angeles Public Library branch, I discovered a book from 1972 about plant care. I felt I had seen it before and my mother probably had this. She was obsessed with reading and collecting books (and plants). We had many. Nothing fancy, just tons of books. Some of my […]
