Perhaps one of the largest rings I've ever made, this bold and daring piece is made from a triangular piece of amethyst agate.
And this is the newest addition to Bee Season! I decided to name this evolving honey related collection to one of my old favorite books by Myla Goldberg.

One of my best friends, Rachel (I lived with two other Rachels in college!) just had her 1 year anniversary with her luvah. This gentleman had emailed me a couple of weeks ago asking if I could make something special for him to give to her as a gift. After lots of back and forth brainstorming, we decided on a train with Jackson on the front. This is because a) she loves public transportation and b) after college, moved to Jackson MI where she met the love of her life. They recently moved to Dallas, TX. So, now that you have a brief biography of Rachel, I can continue.
Since Chris was always with Rachel, he had to be stealth in communicating with me. And so, he sent me a rapid doodle of a train on his iPhone.
And then, I made this!
And, thank god, she loved it.

Ii'm going to Maine today after work! This time last year my whole extended family crammed into a giant house on Lake Champlaigne and played Boggle and Perfection all night every night.

Ink Calendar make use of the timed pace of the ink spreading on the paper to indicate time. The ink is absorbed slowly, and the numbers in the calendar are ‘printed ‘ daily. One a day, they are filled with ink until the end of the month. The calendar enhances the perception of time passing and not only signaling it. The aim of the project is to address our senses, rather than the logical and conscious brain.

I went to the gym around 4:15. (I haven't gone in about two months, other than yesterday). After casting a quick glance at the schedule for classes, I saw a class called Yoga Sculpt that started in 15 minutes. What a great word to describe a class, I thought. All I want to be is sculpted. If I had compare myself to either marble, play-do, Sculpy, Fimo, or paper mache, I would say my body type is that of sculpy. I'm not quite as doughy as play-do, but I'm certainly no marble. So anyway, I ended up watching King of Queens on an eliptical for 15 minutes and then headed to the classroom.
5 other girls were there, all very skinny, fit, and incredibly tan. Who is tan? It's like winter here in Boston. Anyway, after an hour of trembling in the plank position (I had to cheat and put my knee down) to nearly dislocating my shoulder in a downward dog horror, I walked out alive, feeling fantastic. I have yet to be sculpted though.
