The term "cabinet of curiosities" describes a collection of items, usually natural history-type objects (anything from biology, geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art, etc). This concept emerged in the 16th century and is what m...

In the spirit of the autumn (and also that hashtag-happy Throw Back Thursday), I thought I'd share some jewelry that I don't make too often these days. Several years ago I was deeply invested in investigations of moss and lichen. I had a sharp eye for spying it while I...

This necklace represents the joyful result that came from a somewhat painful lesson. I had been hanging on to the bottom stone for a long while. It was part of a parcel of stones I bought, and I didn’t know what it was, and frankly, I didn’t even really like it. But wi...
