No Time to Hibernate
As the leaves fall and windless frosty mornings bring a stillness to the landscape, I bathe in the late season sunlight and drink in the warm golds and coppers of lingering fall foliage. But where the shorter days and cool air typically prompt a need to hunker down and hibernate, I’m feeling instead a sense of anticipation. I find myself looking forward to festive occasions, family gatherings and adventures in the snow.
My excitement began over the summer with the return of craft fairs, a welcome change from 2020. Getting out and about and seeing customers inspired me to create new designs and enhance shop favorites. The feeling of exhilaration continues as I stock galleries and take orders for the holidays.
The limited-edition Flow series of pendants grew from the summer flurry of activity. These one-of-a-kind pieces combine my signature leaf texture, favorite metalsmithing techniques—enhanced by Keum-Boo—and beautiful gemstones, and they are now in the shop. Browse around my website for new work, one-of-a-kind pieces and, of course, customer favorites.
Are you looking for artful gifts for special people in your life this year? The holidays will be here before you know it. As my gift to you, I am offering free shipping on orders of $200 or more for the month of November (use code FREE200 at checkout). Think of it as motivation to plan ahead. This is no time to hibernate.
I wish you a joyous holiday season.

Another equally special place is craft fairs. Being able to show my work and see my customers in person means the world to me, and I’m so excited that craft fairs are back this summer. I truly enjoy meeting and engaging with you, face-to-face, learning what resonates with you when you look for handcrafted jewelry, and giving you a chance to touch and try on your purchases.
