I've been eying this pin for quite some time and decided to go for it. I'm so glad I did - it's spectacular. Very striking, too. This is the best kind of wearable art!

One of a Kind • One at a Time • Handmade Sculpture to Wear


It all starts with that first light of day.
The sounds of creatures awakening, a musical tone recalling
melodies of the past, the sensations of what may come …
Armed with a cup of joe, the color of the day presents itself and
I am eager to follow the lead of my Muses.

And so it goes ...
Mixing the colors, seeing where they will take me.
The discovery of form, the challenge of structure, studying function.
Decisions and choices, rearranging and discarding,
failures and learnings, concepts captured.

From what my mind sees,
my spirit feels …
through my hands,
into something that can be held and considered …

I hope that each and every piece of mine,
gives voice to an emotion of yours
and perhaps in turn,
initiates that connection with someone else.

May your journey be sweet.
Thanks so much for coming by!

Hello there.
I design and hand make, all of these one of a kind artisan pieces.

For every item that's listed in this shop, several prior prototypes have been conceived, created, experimented on, road tested, and deconstructed.
The learnings that come from that process is both creatively gratifying for me, and ensures that you are purchasing a functionally sound and sensory pleasing object.

Come and share this good energy and joyfulness in
creating, wearing, using a sweet something,
that may stir a little emotion,
generate some small pleasure, start a conversation...

Thanks so much, for dropping by and joining me on this journey.
