A Beautiful Change in El Salvador

Three weeks ago I boarded a flight in Atlanta with 15 other team members on a globalX short term mission trip to El Salvador. Today and back home, I’m a different person. Our purpose in El Salvador was to serve alongside La Casa de mi Padre, a children’s home whose vision is to heal hearts, […]

No Greater Love

I felt inspired to make a cross again. Maybe because Christmas is approaching. Maybe because Jesus has been at the front of my mind as I get ready to serve in El Salvador. Maybe because these days, I’m highly aware of the sacrifice He made on my behalf, even though I can’t fully comprehend it. […]

Rejection: It hurts. It propels.

It finally happened: I applied for a fine arts show and was…rejected. You see, I can count on both hands the number of shows I’ve applied for. Each time I’ve been accepted I’ve been thrilled. But ten isn’t very many, and I knew that one day I’d be reading a “regrets” email instead of a […]

Back to the Jewelry Studio

I’m finding my way back to the jewelry studio. It felt great to finish a few pieces yesterday, just because I could. But I’m a little rusty. What you don’t see here is the other bangle on which I melted a “pebble” and soldered one on the wrong side, and some ear wires I managed […]

The Skies

Psalm 19:1 I’ve thought on this verse many times, looking up at the tops of the trees and puffy clouds gracefully gliding across the sky. Even if we (humans) say nothing at all, the rest of God’s creation speaks on His behalf. “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of […]

Moving Forward

I feel like I’m entering yet another season of creativity.  As I look ahead in my calendar, there are many pages not yet filled with ink.  My thoughts are turning again to working on my website, trying new metalsmith techniques, introducing new jewelry designs…all while I have the freedom to do so.  Life experience has […]

Alpharetta Arts Streetfest

This weekend I’ll be one of the participating jewelers at the Alpharetta Arts Streetfest.  More than any other fine arts show I’ve taken part in to date, I’m really looking forward to this one.  There will be sunny skies with flowers in bloom, it’s close to home, and in an ideal location for showing my […]
