About

Smaller is better (sometimes).

When you were little, didn't stars just look like pieces of broken light in the sky, or maybe far away fireflies? You didn't know that they were really so much bigger than anything you could imagine. Just thinking about it makes my breath catch in my throat. Far away in space, stars are floating massively bright, sometimes orbited by planets. But for all their clusters and twinkling, there is a lot of space between them. That is how it can feel on Earth sometimes, too.

Closer to home, the light still shines bright.

My jewelry seeks to capture the blues and grays of the sky and sea. Sky & Light is named after the power company my father worked at when I was a child-- Mississippi Power & LIght. As a little girl, this sounded so powerful, as if he was the district manager of the sun's heat and light. My products are reflections, flares and light glinting on the ocean, still or tempestuous.

My pendants take the biggest things in the world (bigger than our world) and shrinks them down so they are close together and you can hold them. The lenses (smaller than a petri dish) create a closeness of the stars to one another, and also to you.

A slice of heaven, hanging around your neck-- what could be more precious?

What if you could capture the stars on the night your child was born? Or the sky above during your first kiss? Sky & Light captures them for you, each pinpoint of light hand painted on a vintage lens and strung on a chain.

Knowing the date and place (time, if you can) of any date past, present or future, I can give you a picture of the stars then and there.

    The universe may be infinite-- are we minuscule or galaxy-sized? My pendants are a reminder of our strange existence.
