Short and sweet...how about some cool jewelry to keep things fresh, despite the heat?
Adornment in eye-catching hues...the black and white graffiti collection.
I think of Hearts....seriously.
How else could you respond to all the rough times life, the world of people, politics, the personal, the political?
I am quick at shape associations, a word for a gesture, a feeling or just simply a tool, to aid on the path, of everything, to everything.
And then I think of 'walking sticks', everyday tools that help the going along the way, like these simple little pleasures...in vibrant colors for every mood.
Spirit 2 found its home, at last, early this month.
In fact, it all started and ended on a Wednesday, June 1, when this one-of-a-kind necklace was picked up from its display case, almost in a sweeping gesture, by an unassuming customer on a showroom visit.
Spirit 2 - Necklace
It all happened so quickly,
I did not have time to fully grasp the sudden departure of a beloved piece, the second of a series of 3 unique necklaces, all with the spirit of late summer colors in mind.
Back from the earliest playful experiments and through the years, evolution and simple variations on a theme, always and forever late summer colors mood.
And now there is number 3, medley of copper and silver elements with heat hues and splashes of black patina to play with along a bead silver chain in colorful arrangements.

We are getting into the flow here, rehearsing, experimenting with display, playing with a borrowed camera, and welcoming the first visitors!
And, more quick peeks below...
So here we go, this is me in the studio, playing model with my Swinging Coil Earrings!
No frills. But those earrings are so light and fun to wear and I just keep them on these days, as I churn a few more and snap shots...
This IS a rare peek into my studio and surroundings, and I am sharing it here today, sooo...
It's time for Spring! It's all I can think about these days, in between melting snow flakes and pale rays of sunshine, the blue skies just autside the door.
I replenished my inventory, I got all my Twists and Turns lined up and ready to spring forward with color!
I also introduced the Bangle Sets to make life easier for everybody, so you can stack them up and have them all!
Speaking of sets, here is one with the Stick Pendants in various combinations.
They are ready to go on an adjustable black cotton cord with matching sliders for any length preference.
Spring cleaning is in the air, regardless of the weather showing otherwise and the world longing for peace...
I reworked these earrings below, made them even more irresistible than before, and so so light to wear!
Of course, big is key, and all the colors they come in.
But most importantly, they swing!
The Season of the Heart continues and it's full-blowing...and I have to admit, I resisted the hearts ALL those seasons!
But not anymore, today I am out of the closet and I bring hearts with me!
Been enjoying myself in the studio these past few weeks, defying the cold, no firewood, and the broken space heater that sat next to me, nonetheless, pretending.
Can you resist them? Didn't think so...
I am obsessed now.
So cannot resist to let you in in another quick peek into my studio doings...
More Hearts coming...in vibrant colors to warm yours!
The beat starts live on Thursday/February 3rd in my online store....
Well, I have no excuses.
I wrote before I was never into this 'heart' thing, admitted I toiled with some of them...but NEVER thought I would be caught in the act!
Gotta say though, all those 'heart' memories gave some itching to my hands, and I just could not resist.
So here we go, blushingly disclosing my latest 'heart-shaped' happy ongoing experiments in the studio...it's play time, and I like it!
jewelry notes from the bench
Hi, welcome to my jewelry blog!
I make simple, colorful and bold jewelry for a contemporary ageless and fun style.
Have been doing this for quite sometime...pretty sure this is what I want to do when I grow up!
Here I jot down thoughts and notes and pictures of work in the making, both in my mind, on paper and on the bench.
for bench updates and exclusive previews...
