Crab Claw Necklace: Gifting with Purpose

I’d like to share with you a thoughtful post from The Righteous Knife on giving gifts from the heart, and remembering that it is, ultimately and certainly, the thought that counts.

I’m feeling lucky that the author, Alicia, took a fancy to my crab claw necklace, which she spotted at The White Weathered Barn on the North Fork and mentioned in her post.

We will all need good gift ideas sooner or later, including on a budget. Read Alicia’s post here!

Blue Dot is in a Contest – Your Vote Would Mean the World!

Twig Stacking Rings by Blue Dot JewelryHello hello! My twig stacking rings are in the running for the UncommonGoods Jewelry Design Challenge! I would so appreciate your vote. Here is the link.

Each person can vote just once by July 16. Each vote is valuable! A million times, thank you.

The winning design will score a vendor contract with UncommonGoods. (How great!) There are some other beautiful designs there too – check them all out.

UncommonGoods is a neat place. As a shopping site they focus on handmade and sustainability. When they are considering offering new items for sale, they often let their shoppers vote, just like in this contest. It’s very community oriented. And they won’t sell leather, feathers or fur.

Thanks for your support! Here are some more photos.

Nature in the City: The First Leaf Ring is Here!


As I’ve mentioned, I am developing a line of rings for Blue Dot. I’d like to introduce you to the first – the Woodside Leaf Ring, all silver and made from a real leaf. It’s available in size 6, although I can make it to any half or whole sizes.

I wore this ring into the city yesterday. I loved seeing the bit of nature sparkle on my hand (it does catch the light so nicely) amid the grey, grey cityscape of lower Manhattan. Nature in the city – we find little ways to make it work!
