California September

It's supposed to be 106 degrees here on Saturday.  I am thirsty for grey, damp walks.

I think one of the reasons I am drawn to jewelry is because it is the closest I can get to capturing the ethereal qualities of nature.  Glimmers of light, movement from the breeze, and strong but elegant forms, as epitomized by the pieces above.


Mystery Remains

I found this skull a few weeks ago when hiking, and have some ideas of what it may be, but am not sure.  Any thoughts?  I will be talking to some experts this weekend, and will post an update then.

Update:  It's a bobcat!  I met with Patty Sun, an educator/naturalist at the Debs Park Audubon Center, and she confirmed it.  I left it with them and hopefully it will be put to good educational use.
