Crimson SOLD

Crimson...the word ushers in a host of references. As a Christian, I think of the crimson blood of Alabama friends think of Roll Tide Roll...and an artist would instantly connect the word with a particular deep dark red which was initially created from the scales of a particular insect. Whatever your reference, I think we can all agree that this is a beautiful necklace!

Marmalade SOLD

I first heard of Marmalade while reading the Paddington Bear stories. It sounded like the most marvelous creation slathered on steaming hot biscuits dripping with butter. I woke up to the sound of rain today and by the time I drove home from the gym, a steady drizzle had dampened the road and had begun to trickle into the garage (which chronically floods). All I wanted to do was get indoors, drink a steaming cup of coffee with cream and sink my teeth into one of my husbands buttermilk biscuits with lashings of marmalade. Now, desire and what one actual does is often in conflict. My digestive system has rebelled against all wheat products so I had to compromise with steel cut oatmeal. But marmalade, ah, there one can make concessions.

Marmalade  is 35 inches long. Faceted tangerine jade, cubes of rock crystal, fresh water pearls spaced with hammered silver rings. So fun.

Independence SOLD

I come from a long line of fiercely independent Texans on my Dad’s side. I think my father has always been proud that his birthday corresponded with Texas Independence Day, March 2nd, a day in which all Texans celebrate the republic. Did you know that Texas is, to my knowledge, the only state in the Union which wrote into their constitution that they have the right to secede? This year is particular noteworthy as it is the 175th anniversary of this most momentous occasion. And for me, well, my father is celebrating 88 years of life, quite an honor for a man who takes no medications, faithful labors in his garden, and spends hours reading. Way to go, Dad.

In honor, I present to you, Independence, showcasing Texas’ state colors of red, white, and blue in a dazzling (we Texas gas like our bling) bracelet. Faceted red and crystal czech glass, faceted blue jade, with a touch of silver.
