A Glance Back at My New Jewelry in 2012

Although this past year was filled with the loss of a strong loving friend, a moving of my studio, laughter and adventures with friends, fear and anxiety over serious illnesses in family members and friends, I still feel grateful.

I live more in the moment, appreciating the time I share with those I love.  Life seems to go faster and faster as we age, but I also have found it's easier to slow it down by recognizing and savoring those precious moments that live on in our memories.  Each day is a gift and as I age I understand that more and more.

I also managed to get some new jewelry into my shops and complete a few commissions.  It was fun for me to go back and see what I'd accomplished!  So to join me on memory lane, I put together some collages of the highlights from my studio in 2012:



Celebrations

Beautiful pieces! I'm loving all the lampwork beads - just gorgeous, but my favorite is the bee and the story behind it - what a great one!
