I am an archaeology grad student. I also write entirely too much, take photographs, make paper crafts and other arts, and travel as much as possible.
I have lupus, which drains my energy a lot, and I'm trying to finish grad school, very slowly. Selling stuff online helps me save for this.
I love ancient places and old things, singing, dreams, surrealism, the ocean and everything in it, anything luxurious, and mythological and spiritual narratives. I think of jewelry as little portable sculptures; they're like mini art that you wear on your body. I love old things, and never get tired of looking at them, though I am a bit tired of accumulating them for myself. I guess my collections of stuff are more like traveling museum exhibits now; I am willing to allow them to move on to enrich someone else's aesthetic life.
