Art imitating life

Spruce nasturtium and garden nasturtium from my studio neighbor 

Spruce nasturtium and garden nasturtium from my studio neighbor 

Shapes, line and color catch my eye. These nasturtium leaves amaze me. Each one has a slightly different curve, ripple or fold creating different outlines. These forms influenced my jewelry making and inspired my nasturtium collection. Each piece of silver is altered from the perfect circle it starts in. I apply transparent enamels and capture a moment of color on my handmade leaves and make them into earrings or a necklace for others to adorn themselves with.

I am honored to be in the same building as the glass flowers shown above. These flowers have influenced me since I first saw them fifteen years ago. I can not think of a more perfect place for my enamel work nor could I have imagined my work could possibly end up here. I am grateful and excited and don't know what could really top this.

Sea foam and marigold, bright hues to get us to spring

Everyone seems to be looking for signs of spring, longer, sunnier days, flowers, weekend getaways. Until then...

Many people know I find inspiration in the details around me. I capture details of textures in cities and nature as well and am always looking for striking color combinations. No matter where my day takes me, down a paved street or wooded path my eyes are forever looking for beauty in the details of life. For those of you who don't know I want to share this part of my life and creative process with you. 

While focusing on my breath and stride on a run I stopped to take these views in knowing I would find my way back to these colors and textures in my studio.

It seems every facet of my life inspires all of my passions. For that I am lucky.

I love running in my city by the river it fills me with a fresh outlook on life and my passion to make.

Teal and marigold! Spring is in sight...

Doesn't this combination remind you of marigolds against a moonlit sky?

Cure spring fever with my newest combination. Earrings are perfect for every season. In preparation for shedding our cowls and scarves why not order a necklace too?

This season has me surrounded white. Snow, frost and ice have covered most of New England. I am not complaining. In fact I am enjoying this snow globe I live in. This afternoon I decided it was time to go for a run. I waited for the snow to start falling knowing I would love the fresh air and snowflakes in my eye lashes. While I was catching my breath I stopped on a bridge over the railway. Through the flurries I captured this scene, unsure of how it may inspire me.

Once I was home and warm, still smiling from my run and seeing my dog play in the snow, I looked back at this picture and realized the one hue I had neglected exploring in my enamel work was white. Once a path is cleared to my studio I plan on firing up my kiln for the first time in years to do some color studies in white with splashes of color. My first splash will be this minty shade of green. 

Stay Cozy & Happy Valentine's Day!
