East of the City | Wanderlust Issue

East of the City Magazine | Sept/Oct 2018 Wanderlust Issue

Every once in a while, something really cool comes out of the blue & surprises you. Recently, a friend that I worked with in college approached me about a feature in the September/October 2018 Wanderlust issue of East of the City. A bi-monthly, regional magazine that always features great articles & outstanding photography. I, of course, said yes! The rest is history.

Spring Cleaning as Self Care | Studio Notes

Lilypad Flowers | Self Care

Regardless of whether the forecast is fully aware of it, it’s officially spring! Which means it’s also time for spring cleaning. Or, at least, around here it’s time for spring cleaning. I need to pull open all the windows and let the kittens sniff the fresh air while I pull apart both the house and the studio and ask what’s totally essential and what’s just a remnant of a warm winter nest. The process is always one that seems romantic at the start, like fresh hell throughout, and like such a wildly refreshing gift at the end. Spring cleaning is self care.

ON THE WORKBENCH: Blue Chalcedony

Ice Blue Chalcedony | Semi Precious Stone

So, if you’ve been around for a bit, you know that we’re just a teeny obsessed with stones. Like, it might be a bit of a problem. But, we’ve obviously figured out the perfect way to feed the obsession – designing jewelry that focuses on the beauty of natural stones. We want to share a few of our favorites and a little bit of interesting info about them

Gate A-4 // Inspired

Gate A4 Poem | Naomi Shihab Nye

A couple of years ago, this poem by Naomi Shihab Nye was sent to me. Her words struck a chord so deep within my heart that it changed me. There hasn’t been a time since that I’ve been able to read it without shedding tears. And forget it if I try to read it out loud. I’m instantly a mess.

Lately, I’ve found myself feeling overwhelmingly tired.

I’m tired of seeing unkind words hurled back and forth.

I’m tired of hearing each day’s news filled with tragedy.

I’m tired of feeling like my actions can’t make a difference.

And then I have a conversation with a friend. Or a stranger goes out of their way to be kind. Or I see people taking a stand to fight for the dignity & welfare of others. And my hope is renewed.

I wanted to share this poem because it gave me hope. I have it hanging in my studio as a reminder – that we can make a difference with patience & kindness & generosity. That it doesn’t always take eloquent words & a huge platform in front of the masses to help. Sometimes it is as simple as a cookie, a hug & a smile.

Growth | Studio Notes

Monstera Leaf | Hawaiian Jungle PlantsThe islands, themselves covered in black and gray rock formations, grow rich, lush jungles dripping with flowers and full of life. Rock shouldn’t be able to grow anything that beautifully, and especially not rock so regularly heaved up from the earth’s mantle. Yet, hot and tumultuous, it’s produced paradise.

Embracing the Unknown // Studio Notes

Freshwater Cave Kauai | Hanalei Hawaii Travel Photography

There is so much beauty to the unknown. It’s why we get on airplanes and travel to far-off places for the very first time, and then why we go back year after year. The beauty of new lands, the beauty of who we become there, the beauty of who surrounds us, and the beauty of the question of what next are so enveloping and can become so warm that they, in themselves, become a sort of home.
