Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing everyone a happy & relaxing Thanksgiving - important as ever this year to pause and be together. We're grateful for so much! Especially a persistence of hope. Junot Diaz in the New Yorker writes: '..but all the fighting in the world will not help us if we do not also hope. What I’m trying to cultivate is not blind optimism but what the philosopher Jonathan Lear calls radical hope. “What makes this hope radical,” Lear writes, “is that it is directed toward a future goodness that transcends the current ability to understand what it is.” Radical hope is not so much something you have but something you practice; it demands flexibility, openness, and what Lear describes as “imaginative excellence.” Radical hope is our best weapon against despair, even when despair seems justifiable; it makes the survival of the end of your world possible. Only radical hope could have imagined people like us into existence. And I believe that it will help us create a better, more loving future.'

'The Underrated Pleasure of Wearing Jewelry Made Just for You'

'..and really, jewelry is at its best when it’s made for only you. When we wear a piece of custom jewelry, we are adding ourselves to a legacy as old as the Romans, the Greeks, the Persians — older. Very few traditions can be said to have remained unchanged over the history of time, but the act of announcing oneself to the world through jewelry is something that has endured through millennia and across cultures. We may no longer formally declare our tribal affiliations under flags or with particular hairstyles or colors, but we still do with what we choose to display on our fingers, our ears and around our necks and wrists.'

 

Above quote from an article in NY Times on the pleasures & treasures of custom jewelry. This is not news to us of course as we do this all the time - in fact our custom jewelry is one of the most rewarding aspects of our studio work. It presents endless opportunities to be creative & innovative with design and, equally important - never fails to offer the wearer a true sense of joy. 

Some pieces we've been working on above & below, link to article here.
