I created a special "Gifts Under 50" section where you'll find 29 great pieces from pendants to pins to earrings… Thanks so much for all your purchases, likes, and comments!

Sand and Sky

I've been looking at my pictures of Iceland as I prepare myself for my third trip and the one I posted below is among my favorites. It's a beach in South Iceland with dark mountains in the distance. I spent some time on that beach one afternoon and remember the scene before me quite vividly. With the Atlantic Ocean on my right, I was surrounded by velvety-rich, black sand and expansive, variable gray sky above. Those mountains loomed a few miles away, wrapped in a layer of mist. My latest Regal Graffiti Collection piece combines two colors from that moment in one graceful earring with a narrow silhouette and subtle surface texture. I designed them with Holiday parties and more festive occasions in mind, too. If there's a pairing you're interested in, feel free to send me an email with your color combination request.

My Etsy Annual Holiday Sale is on for just a few more enjoys. It ends Monday, December 15.

I was playing around with some Line Drawing circles and arcs the other day, trying to find the right balance for a new pendant. I have designed new work like this for years: working with multiple parts at my bench, holding them up, moving them around, taking away, adding…until something simply clicks and it feels right. That's exactly what happened with this new Perspective Line Drawing Pendant--two circles and two arcs form a multi-dimensional, sculptural pendant with casual structure.

See more new work and lots, lots more at my Etsy Shop!

Three Roses

Today's new addition is this elegant Three Roses Necklace. Delicate and feminine, simple and modern all at once… I do love mixing opposites in subtle ways. The Three Roses Necklace is 18" long and each abstract rose is about the size of a dime. Find it and 121 other pieces in all sorts of styles and colors in my Etsy Shop.

Ghost Drawings

Every once in awhile I get a request for my Line Drawing Earrings in bright and shiny silver, instead of the original oxidized patina. Then recently, one of my galleries requested a set of basic Line Drawing earrings in this lighter version to complement the original styles they currently have. Now I bring these bright and shiny, whisper-light versions to you. The shiny surface is sparkling and reflective and just adds to the barely-there feeling. Incredibly wearable, minimal, and elegant, these earrings are perfect for every day.

Little Spoons

Today marks the final week of my Annual Holiday Sale on Etsy. Next Monday, December 15th will be the last day to take advantage of 25% off and complimentary gift wrap. For the next five days I'm going to share a new design and surprise you with special flash deals. Today's pieces are my Spoon Pendant and Spoon Earrings, new additions to my History Repeats Collection.

In the recent past, I've made abstract spoons for a few sculptural one-of-a-kind necklaces and I liked the form so much I decided to create miniature versions. These little spoons measure about 1 1/2" long and are composed of a teardrop and an angular wall to represent the handle and shallow bowl of a traditionally designed spoon. Spoons can symbolize different things and to me they reference friendship, generosity and the sharing that naturally happens between good friends. My Spoon Pendant and Spoon Earrings are on sale for $54 each.

Now, to find out about my special flash deals and final surprises this week, please visit me on Instagram. That's where you will discover what I'm up to…

Iceland on My Mind

Remember a few weeks ago I mentioned I would be sharing some big news with you in the coming weeks? Well, I have news to share today, and new work that complements it. I'm heading back to Iceland in about three weeks! I will be showing "In Between" for two months at the Wind and Weather Gallery in Reykjavik and it opens January 1. Then I head to Blönduós in Northwest Iceland to a residency at Textílsetur where I will be spending the month stitching a black version of "Island of 14,264 Days," an idea I had when I was at the Nes Artist Residency in 2013. Then for the month of February, I will head back to Reykjavík for another month at SÍM where I will be developing new work for my next exhibition. In total, I will be in Iceland for just over two months and I am counting the days until I climb aboard that Icelandair jet. I'll fill you in on the details soon.

To celebrate my return to Iceland, I'm offering some new pieces in my Iceland Palette: Small Teardrop Earrings and Small Teardrop Pendants in colors of the landscape. The earrings are available with posts or wires and the pendants come with an 18" fine cable chain. All pieces are only $55.50 for the rest of the sale. Enjoy!
