went out to the desert to shoot some photos I’d had on a mood board for a long time … enlisted two of my besties, Donna and Mary. They shot these. I may use for some of my album artwork. ( I’ve been writing a full length album in LA for two years, and it’s close to being finished! ) I’m not sure yet on the exact nature of the album artwork. I’m ever evolving and I wait until I know. And rn I just don’t know. BUT I LOVE these. so here they are. . . we captured them at the famous Vasquez rocks. Known for their otherworldly appearance.

bluese fare

Feeling kind of bla,,, blasé…don’t know why. Just am. … so put on my Yves Saint Laurent baby blue tee I thrifted at the Rose Bowl and felt a little lift!

Shall we call it bluese fare? I don’t know any more. But I added some Rossmore Stone Rose rings and felt another Little Lift!

And I’m enjoying that as much as I can these days. Any little lift. Maybe I should name the new double baguette rings Little Lift? Because that’s what they do! They lift you up when you wear them. A little shine. A little sparkle definitely helps the bla bla bla blasé fare. Enjoy this photo set.

the sparkling arts

My friend gave me a book about Bubbly. I had the best time reading about the French countryside. . . Truly. I was engrossed. The region of champagne is so special and curious. Sooo curious. And champagne making ignites every cylinder in my skull. I’m deeply into making. I feel such a kinship to any process oriented pursuit that it’s somewhat painful…because my mind borders on obsessive and I become transported into a fellow makers world, especially when confronted with such lovely work as making fine champagne and wines. Oh the details! Enough to make me lit from within on the mere information itself!

Anyhow, I started to have feelings of effervescence enter my creative psyche I’m sure, Because these delightful little baubles came forth not too long after. And they demand celebration! They demand a hand grasping a flute tightly without a clue as to what might come next for an evening. . .Ah yes. The journey. Where shall these bubbly babies take us?

Thanks for joining me on my newest journey, Mother of Diamonds. I look forward to sharing all my creative endeavors with you as I go.

I work with gold that holds our past and diamonds that see the future and rubies that long for love. It’s just a way of telling a story.” – Waris Ahluwalia

I started making rings a few years ago, completely smitten with the intrinsic shiny qualities of stones. And, as I’ve come to work with them more, I feel like they are siMilar to all God’s children. They are so lovely and unique and have the capacity to shine in such specific ways. And the blessings they contain. And their ability to complement one another. Amazing amazing amazing.

Among other things, I’m truly excited to share my jewelry and creative pursuits with you on this blog! I made this intimate set of photos by myself, in a little mid-century pied-a-terre in the Hollywood Hills, with a cup of tea, and the light of a small window,,, and the inspiration of these rings I just made. Enjoy xx MOD
