Today is Endangered Species Day!

Today is Endangered Species Day, a day to bring awareness of the many vulnerable creatures around the world who are losing their habitats due to human actions. More and more species are being affected by our actions: acidifying oceans, melting sea ice, forest logging and warming temperatures, and extreme weather. 20170519_framedcondorToday however I’d like to highlight a success story: the California Condor. I wrote a blog post about a month ago; I sketched the condor because I wanted to bring awareness to this bird, and because I think the shape of the head contrasting with it’s black plumage is very dramatic and beautiful. Now in celebration of Endangered Species day, I’m offering this sketch for sale as a print.  It’s available framed and unframed. Remember 10% of the purchase price always goes to NRDC to help endangered animals, wild places, and combat climate change.

California Poppy Oval necklace now available in Gold Tone

The California Poppy necklace is now available with a brass bezel and 24 carat gold filled cable chain! I love the warm tone of gold next to the bright orange of the poppies.

Until now my pieces have only been available in sterling silver and sometimes white brass, but now I’m starting to experiment with the warm rich color of brass and gold.

The Poppy Oval necklace is available now and in stock!
