Sometimes someone comes into your life, and almost instantly, you see that you are connected on some deep level. I met Theresa, the owner of this piece, just over two years ago, but it feels like far longer. In this time, she has become my dear friend, confidante, champion, and inspiration. Theresa, you are cherished. XXX

I'll be honest, the photo of this one is lousy. I work hard to get good photos, but once in awhile, a piece just doesn't cooperate. The black is in reality a very dark purple, but I cannot tease that out with photo editting.
Mosaics are intrinsically difficult to photograph, and my jewelry in particular, it seems. Maybe some day I'll manage to take photos that make my pieces look as delightful as they do in real life, but if I had a nickel for every time someone said, "They are even nicer in person...."

While in Canada, I spent some time in the Rocky Mountains. No matter how many places I see on this crazy planet, I still think some of my favourite scenery is practically in my back yard. Many of the lakes in the mountains are glacier fed, and as such have a lot of silt in them. The result is nothing short of the most spectular colour of aquamarine.

This piece was another commission, and honestly one I wasn't sure would work, but I'm happy to say I was terribly wrong. I wasn't sure if the requested sails would look right, but I just love how they turned out. This piece now lives in Perth, Australia, and I can see why this colour combo and motif was suggested from having been to a beach near there.

Greetings! It's been over three months since I last posted, and during that time I've been teaching, and travelling. I made it back to Canada for a nice long visit with family and friends, and now I've returned to Greece, and finally getting back to the creative side of what I do.
This piece was commissioned by a client turned friend, who wanted a special piece with specific colours. We had fun coming up with the design, and I'm thrilled to say she loves it!
