Changing. Evolving. Shedding previous forms and emerging as a new, magnificent being. This has been my uncomfortable, yet blessed journey this year. Almost all of our growth happens under painful circumstances- lessons learned "the hard way" or with harrowing circumstances. Easy lessons are never the ones we need to master. These lessons, however insufferable, transform us. They drudge and drag us from the mud of our selves.
But isn't it beautiful to think we have something in common with butterflies? The most enchanting creatures that grace they sky- and we share so many similarities with them. We, too, are formed under pressure. We, too, emerge stronger, more beautiful from our place of growth.
Most of my work is seeing the potential in everyday items. With this gift, I am able to transform materials from throw-away scraps to beautiful wearable art. Our new metamorphosis earrings are a perfect example.
Like all of us, these pieces started as soft, delicate materials; filled with potential and promise. Not everyone can see the possibilities in these substances. This does not diminish their value, however.
A bag of zippers may not pique the interest of just anyone. They are meant for me.
Gently trimming zippers, which get set aside for another project. (Watch for the next blog post)
These beautiful leftover pieces- fragments of plush cotton- are where the true possibility lies.
Wrapped tightly, in a velvety bundle, these pieces embody delicate cocoons. Adorned with hand-wrapped wire, tightly holding salvaged beads, crystals, and semi-precious gemstones. They take on a life of their own.
These pieces speak to me. They sing songs of change, growth, and promise of brighter days. They symbolize the butterfly within us all, they pay respect to the maturation of our selves. Every pair of earrings is crafted with deep love and intention. I truly believe that each pair belongs to a specific person, who feels drawn to their meaning. You will know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, if one of these pairs belongs to you.
If you are going through times of metamorphosis- please know- that what is on the other side is beautiful, and powerful, and worth all of the distress.
These pieces are one-of-a-kind and cannot be duplicated. Get yours in our online shop here:
