Here are some fun new pieces I made for Twill last week - they had a huge birthday celebration this weekend and I made 30 new pairs of earrings just for the occasion. These are all definitely inspired by summer and all the great colors that come along with it!

As some of you know, this weekend is both the first birthday and Mother's Day without my mom. As I looked ahead to this weekend, I wanted to try and find a positive way to remember her and decided what better way to honor her memory than to celebrate some of the amazing women in my life! There are so many wonderful women that I have shared laughter, joy, and tears with and those who have continued to encourage, support, and believe in me. I realized that so many of the attributes that I loved about my mom, I see in these women, and I am so grateful to have them in my life. Here are some of the things I made for those speacial ladies:

Beauty seeps into silent moments,
filling voids we never knew.
I see it in the stars......
in the tiny quiet moments that pass all to quickly.
A glimpse of hope
something bigger than myself
I know that tomorrow will be a new day
filled with new beauty.
Filled with hope.

These pieces reflect some of my greatest inspiration right now. I am so inspired by all things old, rusty, forgotten and neglected. The way something ages gives it so much character. I'm drawn to chipped paint, things that have been tucked away, beat up and weathered metal. I just can't get enough!

This piece was a custom order for a very dear friend of mine. The center pendant is actually from a bolo tie belonging to her step father who recently passed. I tried to create a unique piece that would be extra special for her and was really happy with how it turned out:

The dark arthritic tree stands strong against the pale gray sky, a single black crow perched on a mangled naked branch. This colored sky usually drops rain in buckets but for the moment it is dry...the pavement still stained with falls discarded leaves. The train is in motion and I see the city is slowly waking up - sleep still in its eyes.
