& The Blackberry Bushes

Thanks for the love everyone! I'll be back with my next series in the spring!

The Instrument Collection 2015

50% of the Profits from the online sales of The Instrument Collection 2015 will be used to finance the projects of other artists/entrepreneurs. I will be doing this through KIVA, a non-profit with a 4 star rating that empowers people to allieviate poverty through micro-lending programs. I believe in the power of the 99% to lift each other up. 

I love Beauty.

 

Meraki is a Greek word that means to do something with love and leave a piece of yourself in your work. Meraki is my genuine goal with every piece of jewelry I make. I make jewelry for people who value wearing something that comes directly from an artist to them. I make jewelry to bring out the inner light. I make jewelry for people who know they are an important part of something much bigger than themselves. I make jewelry to support the growth of beauty, consciousness and kindness in the world today.

 

I have a Vision

I want to believe that my work can do something that matters in the world. A few times a year, I offer my jewelry online. It is available for a limited time, and then I make and deliver the pieces in one big go. I then use 50% of my profits to finance the dreams of another artist/entrepreneur or to support a charity organization. 

WIN 

This lets me focus on the art of creating new beautiful pieces. I love that. I get the freedom of a wholesale type of schedule, which works for me and my touring schedule. 

WIN

This lets me offer my work to the people who will actually wear it at more affordable prices. I want people to feel totally psyched that they get something beautiful, support an independent artist, and support the work of a charity that needs them.

WIN

Someone else doing really awesome work in the world gets some funding that they need. Wicked Awesome.
