“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” - H.D. Thoreau ✨ A quiet moment in the studio.
Sweet little heated citrine points (cut by my fave, @daileycutgems) all lined up waiting to become rings. After much deliberation, I have finally decided on a design for them! There will be some of my hand forged poppies and some brass pollen granules for good measure. I think they will be quite tall rings, preview and a call for ring sizes soon!
✖️ Honeybee Collection Shop Update: Sunday, October 14 at 7pm EST ✖️ I do want to give you a heads up that since we are going into the Christmas season, I wont be able to revisit any honeybee designs after the collection release. If a design sells out quickly and a lot of people are sad they missed out, I sometimes do a small batch of that design shortly after the collection release. (Like the Yavanna Earrings from the Mossflower Collection.) But I wont be able to for any Honeybee designs. I would love to make you all the things, but it is going to be a very busy couple of months ahead! And so, everything will be first come first serve as usual. If you have your eye on something for a Christmas gift, for a friend, or for yourself because you are a bee charmer (I just know all of you are!), I hope you are able to snag it during the shop update! It will likely be a year or two before I visit bees again. Just wanted to give you a heads up!
Goodness, I am blessed to be here! To be able to walk with an idea through ether and sketchbook and gemstone and metal, until it finally alights in the hand, like a rotund little bumblebee. To transmogrify spark into stone and silver, to hold an idea in the palm of your hand, I can scarcely believe how lucky I am to be doing this work.
