Well I'm back... geez. Brandon told me to keep this blog going and I didn't. But, I'm back.
I'm off to Greece but will be back.

For many years now I've combined my hand painted silk with steel cut in organic shapes and woven with the silk, or used as the framework for hanging pieces on the wall.

In meandering a beach in Mexico, I found some shells (worm casings, I'm told) that have become special to me - each time I find one I feel blessed. I decided to make a talisman for young man of whom I'm fond who is a Marine leaving for Afghanistan soon. In constructing it, I began empathizing with his mother. So the process morphed into two talismans - a small one for the Marine to carry and one for his mother. Hers is meant to hang in a window to catch her eye for sending off blessings to him. The creative process was filled with positive protective energy.
