Yesterday, I decided to do a little bit of work so I would have something new to offer for sale at Funky Stuff, a great shop full of artists and crafters and even a lovely little vegan cafe.

Aqua Marine, Appetite, Sterling & Fresh Water Pearls

Aqua Marine, Appetite, Sterling & Fresh Water Pearls

Funky Stuff, is kind enough to carry some of my jewelry work as well as a bunch of my bath products. Long ago, I had a little kingdom in the Arlington and Cambridge area where my work could be found in shops. Then I went and I traveled the world. For a time, it was in a beautiful gallery in Helsinki Finland and in a lovely gallery in Vienna Austria. When I came home, and we moved, I have found I have to start all over again. Funky Stuff, is my first attempt to rebuild what I once had.

I love to do what I do, design and create… I don’t know how I would keep breathing if I stopped. So it is beyond fabulous to once again have an outlet where people can go to actually interact with and purchase my work.

This simple piece looks very simple, but it is actually a time consuming labor of love that involves very fine and careful work with my hands and a delicate touch. It takes a lot of energy and quite a bit of time. It is made from aqua marine, appetite, fresh water pearl, and sterling silver which means it is fairly high end materials. A true labor of love, if I didn’t have this vision so strongly while working I might have given up on this piece given how time consuming it is. But the vision was so strong and beautiful I simply couldn’t stop till it was done. After wards, I was quite tired from the high levels of concentration.

This piece was inspired by the Scandinavian goddess of ice, snow and winter time. I tried very hard to make it look like something she would wear, and to make it look like the fresh water lakes in countries like Finland during the winter months. I like to think that I caught something in this design of the power and look of a winter blizzard.

My only regret with this piece is the time I finished it. After the natural lighting was getting bad. I apologize for the poor quality of my photography. It simply does not do this stunning piece justice. Tragically, I am a crafter a farmer, and a bit of an inn keep and musician. I am not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination. I wanted to share this though bad photos or no because this piece is so beautiful in real life I am actually very proud of it.
