When designing jewelry, there is nothing more inspiring to me than color. Color in flowers, leaves, the sky- almost every part of the natural world. Natural gemstones are the colors found in the most beautiful things we can see around us. When I return from Gem Shows and see the stones I have bought all together, it makes me want to design new jewelry. I always arrange them and rearrange them, creating color and texture combinations. The other day I spread them on a tray in the bright sun.

Summer! The sun is shining after an entire month of clouds and rain. I picked these today at our farmshare and felt like I was in heaven with bees buzzing and butterfly's all around. Everything seemed to sing with gratefulness after the long rain. I want to document the flowers from my garden and our farm each week because when I pick them I want them to last forever, along with summer. Here are the most amazing strawberrieswe picked too, tasting almost of liquor after soaking in the sun.
