A Jelly-Fish

Marianne Moore, 1887 - 1972

Visible, invisible,
A fluctuating charm,
An amber-colored amethyst
Inhabits it; your arm
Approaches, and
It opens and
It closes;
You have meant
To catch it,
And it shrivels;
You abandon
Your intent—
It opens, and it
Closes and you
Reach for it—
The blue
Surrounding it
Grows cloudy, and
It floats away
From you.

Agate Concho, Pearl, Sterling Silver

(SOLD)

 

One of the most satisfying jewelry pieces I completed last summer was this brooch.  I took a sheet of sterling silver and my hammer and completed the vision I had in my head of an oyster with a most gorgeous blue pearl.  (a little more effort than that, but in a nutshell!)

Fire and Ice - when ceramic meets metal

Artisan pendant

Fire and Ice pendant

 

This is what can happen when I sit with my stash of MAKU ceramic goodies.  I adore her ceramics, because I adore raku colors and her rustic forms.  The sprinkles of silver just add to the magic and for me make them a natural for a silver setting.
