Well, it happened again...

I spend a lot of time in my personal life, especially these days, feeling angry about the state of the country and disappointed in what turns out to be a fairly large portion of my fellow humans. However, I try to use my work as a positive force in my life. My studio time is time for me to meditate with metal and fire. It’s a time to create beautiful things out of cold, hard materials. To forget about everything else. For the most part, that works out pretty well. But once in a while my anger seeps into my work. And I have no problem with that.

Last week I was in the middle of working on several pieces that I’d wanted to finish for an end-of-the-week shop update, but then this piece popped into my head and I had to put everything else aside to birth it.

I don’t think anyone needs me to spell out what inspired this piece.

Sometimes I just don’t have anything nice to say.

The Love Lantern Secret Message Necklace

 

 

I really love this little necklace. Both the look and the idea. It's designed so you can write a little note to your loved one (a great gift for a sister, daughter, best friend or of course a girlfriend or wife - and hey, some men could pull it off too!), roll it up, and tuck it inside. Once in, the note unfurls and becomes a permanent part of the jewelry. I've been wanting to make a locket for some time now and when I sat down to actually design one I decided I wanted to do something a little different. I'll still work on a more traditional locket at some point, but I'm really happy with how this came out. Only you'll know there's a secret inside!
