Majestic Portland ๐ŸŒบ #threephotos #latergram
A Reminder Of Purpose ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป I fixed our washing machine today! Which I know does not make for the most attractive of Instagram photos. ๐Ÿ™€However, the start-to-finish process of researching, experimenting, and ultimately succeeding in my goal of making the machine functional again reminded me why I do what I do in life. โš’ I am an artist who uses her skills and talents to make things even better than they were when she found them. Because sometimes life is about fixing what’s broken, but most often it’s about improving things when and where we can, so we can shine as bright as we’re able. ๐Ÿ’– (Plus all that jewelry work lends itself to electric wire stripping!)
All Five At Once ๐Ÿป Thank you @belmontstation for carrying this hard-to-find mead. Mandatory stocking up every time we’re up in Portland.
แš  Happy Anniversary ๐Ÿฅ‚ Six months ago exactly, another Friday the 13th — that’s when we got the keys to the Treehouse. But more than changing domiciles, it was the day we transitioned to putting down roots somewhere we loved. I wake up every morning and feel profound gratitude that I now live and work in the environment which has always called to me. May I continue to grow and share the wild beauty that is natural wisdom with the world. แšจ

When your skin matches your clothing ๐Ÿ˜ป I’m one happy Viking girl in my Ragnarok leggings by @lunafide_official. Better believe I want one of everything in this design! ๐Ÿ›ก
แ›’ Travel Gems ๐ŸŒฒ I play a game when I’m in unfamiliar territory; I look for signs and guideposts I might miss in the comfort of home terrain. Makes any trip lively!
Rune Staves แšฆแ›Ÿแšฑ I’m excited to add hand-carved pieces in precious metals asap. Few things are more potent than a spell stave that’s custom carved just for you. โš’
Danny’s birthday this year involved hard cider tasting, teaching me to shoot pool, steak dinner, movies, wine, and family. ๐ŸŽ Birthdays are different for everyone but I’m grateful to have a day every year to celebrate the life of the man who balances me out so thoroughly. โค๏ธ
ICYMI: I have a collection of Tarot Pendants on my site! ๐Ÿ”ฎ An eye-catching way to communicate your love of Divination and the Arcane with the world. ๐Ÿ’œ  Each pendant features a miniature print of Italian tarot cards with Swarovski crystals, set in an antiqued brass bezel. They’re larger than they look and make for stunning focal jewelry. Link in bio if you’d like to explore which are left!
แšจ Wednesday Wisdom แ›ˆ It’s Odin’s Day and I though it’d be fun to read the runes for the days to come. ๐Ÿ”ฎ  I see the importance of honoring the women and the creative spirits that came before us... trusting ourselves to turn inward and then speak truth, even in the face of painful memory. As they did. ๐ŸŒฑ I see the importance of gratitude, of seeking the gift present in every situation or encounter, as this choice allows us to grow wiser and stronger beyond our current limits. ๐ŸŒฒ And I see that we must be willing to illuminate the path ahead for others, because as the cycles turn and power becomes vulnerability, those with open hearts must blaze the new trail. ๐Ÿ”ฅ xoxo
Coaxing the flame ๐Ÿ”ฅ แšฆแ›Ÿแšฑ Forging metal is just like forging ahead in life... heat and pressure burn away everything but what’s true, making it stronger in the process. This Thor’s Hammer Rune Stave pendant is an experiment but I’m hoping to offer something similar soon!

Works In Progress ๐ŸŒฑแšฑแšฒแ›‡  Experimentation is actually my most challenging part of the artistic process. Which makes it an absolute priority. There is no growth without practice, error, and imperfection. I’m saying it for us both. ๐Ÿ’š
Sun & Rain ๐ŸŒฆ I love watching our neighborhood redwoods change color with this wet weather. ๐ŸŒฒ
