...within each piece, a story unfolds....

*********************************************************
I'm back, finally! I’m not quite sure why I decided to take a full three months off from my etsy shop this summer, other than the fact that my life quickly and completely became full of life events that took full priority over listing the pieces of new jewelry that I’ve been creating. I’m back now that summer is coming to a close, just as cooler weather, shorter days, and a change in natural color takes place in this hemisphere. It’s good to be here, back in the shop, listing the things that my hands and heart have spun both here in western north Carolina and in the high rocky mountains of Breckenridge, Colorado.
The Rock Paper Scissors publication, Studios, was kind enough to feature an article that I wrote about the upending and purging and tweaking of my tiny little bedroom-turned-studio, back in May, for their summer issue. The article brought a lot of new interest to my work, and along with Pinterest, a lot of inquiries as to when I’d be listing things again. My apologies to the dozens and dozens and dozens of folks who wrote, that I neglected to write each one of you a personal note. Time was scarce. I hope you’ll find something here that will speak to your soul….

Here are some comments from my beloved customers about a few of my jewelry pieces:

"Oh my, thank you so much for my beautiful Rosaline pendant. I received it Wed. And was star struck when I opened it. I love wearing 'enchant' around my neck."

"Actually this isn't my first item: I have two pairs of earrings, another hanging ornament. And I see she has some more yoummy things coming. Her ornaments are beautiful, great quality and you can feel her spirit shining through them. I don't feel like I'm "buying" jewelry but instead spending "spiritual currency" to help her continue sharing her dreams. You can't help but be inspired by her work."

"Dear Nina, I've written to you before but this is my first time to buy one of your pieces. I've read your blog for years and love that you are so open with your readers. I think Walter is just wonderful.
I live in New Mexico and am a weaver by trade, selling handspun hand-dyed yarns at the local Farmer's Market. I also play the Hammered Dulcimer and am buying this necklace to wear to the Swannanoa Gathering the first week in August near Asheville. Most of what I've seen of NC is from your blog. The area where I live is dry desert with a lot of cactus. When you post those pictures of rain and trees and soft mountains marching off into the distance it just amazes me that there are places like that. I tend to forget even though I have myself lived in places that were green and rain happened more than once every few months. The sun burns those memories away and your blog is a lovely reminder that they still exist. I will also wear this necklace to Ireland at the end of September. Another Green place."

This bracelet is AMAZING!! Thank you for making such beautiful work! I'll be wearing it for my warrior exams next week. A warrior exam comes from the buddhist tradition in which we work with the knowing that comes from hearing and contemplating the teachings. The quote on the bracelet will be a reminder to me to listen to the voice within as I answer the questions: "Between us and the stars, there lies silence; and there in the stillness, let us listen to the voice that speaks within us." Blessings, T

Today was Nina Bagley day in Moorpark. I happened to have lunch with my friend, who was sporting a gorgeous Nina Bagley original that she received in todays mail. She was also wearing a beautiful Nina Bagley "Bird Girl" bracelet that her friend Carmen gave her knowing she IS the quintessential "Bird Girl!" Carmen was wearing her Nina Bagley "Story Gate" necklace, Nina Bagley "Fairy and Story" earrings, and Nina Bagley bracelet with the H. Balloc quote. After lunch I arrived home to find in my mail not one, but two exquisite Nina
Bagley necklaces! You take fabulous photos of your jewelry creations but they are so much more beautiful in person! Thank you I am ecstatic!!!"

i love these script earrings, Nina. They have the feel and aura of some very old family treasure handed down through the generations (perhaps from the eldest daughter to her eldest daughter, and so on?) and the patina of the mother of pearl "frames" gleam softly at my earlobes. I love them. Thank you so much!

"This is my first Nina Bagley and it won't be my last. I am so pleased with this piece, my talisman, my necklace of joy. Thank you Nina for bringing a big smile to me today. I will be wearing this all the time."
