Often people assume when one works in gold and gemstones that that's what a person values. I assure you being a jeweler is not a glamorous job, as you hands are almost always blackened with polishing compound, calloused fingertips and nails forever nicked.
It's easy to get caught up in the idea of glamour and fashion, and even can be fun! The jewelry & fashion industry will always be there ever growing and consuming, even innovating and recycling. Yet we must come to our physicality with the understanding that it's all part of the Veil.
that physical manifestation of our reality that we can see and touch.
don’t think that because i make jewelry & design beauty that’s all i care about. it’s a trade skill, bending metal,
in essence, i am an artist. I have participated in fashion, but my work has always been conceptual above all.
In this superficial world of commodification and product-making, to turn a trade skill into an art, that is the challenge.
i value the diamantine sparkle in a drop of water just as much as a diamond. maybe even more
and aspire to live a simple life, with minimal desires and needs. You will probably never see me dripping with jewelry on a usual given day, but i am inclined to wear a piece for energetic purposes or sentimental value.
in times of uncertainty i have four questions, goals & priorities in this life- i ask myself:
did you Inspire
did you Innovate
did you Assist
did you Love
My work exists to inspire others to value the natural & etheric world,
to show there is more to know, more to explore, and always more opening to do.
Yes, i take decent photos, & post plenty of jewelry & manifested beauty, girl’s gotta make a buck!
But even greater than that, I hope all my posts can give a seed of learning to those ready to receive.
So although the diamond may cost more in many aspects
