Go Your Own Way - Birth of the WARRIOR SPIRIT Collection

So I was working on a piece yesterday that I thought was going to be a pendant. I had set the stone [which is the final step] and was polishing the piece when I noticed that the bale had come apart [from filing down too far, my bad]. It is really tricky solding a piece once you've set turquoise, because it is quite soft and fragile, and doesn't like heat, so I carefully attempted to resolder the bale. Quite a few times. Normally this would be easy. But this time, no. All attempts at fixing or replacing the bale failed. I put the piece aside for a moment and walked away. When I returned, I turned the piece on its...

OSIRIS and the process of creation

OSIRIS is a portal of creation, a realm between this world and the other… When I am creating within this current of OSIRIS, I am dissolved into the mysteries… The voices of many cultures speak to me, whispering the sacred secrets of their ancient ways. The rhythms emerge. OSIRIS is the realm of archetypes, of akashic records, where the priestess, the warrior, the shaman and the sorcerer, all abide in their spirit forms, radiating their heightened currents of gnosis and remembrance.

Sacred White Buffalo Collection

I have begun a new collection, featuring the mystical Sacred White Buffalo Turquoise.

The Shoshone Indians are not known for jewellery work and, as a consequence, the Shoshone sell or trade the white turquoise to the Navajo in Arizona who work it into jewellery. Because white turquoise is as rare as the white buffalo, the Indians call it “White buffalo” turquoise. Turquoise gets its color from the heavy metals in the ground where it forms. Blue turquoise forms where there is copper present (most Arizona turquoise). Green turquoise forms where iron is present...

OSIRIS studio gets fresh!

So coming back to my wonderful studio after a month abroad, I was keen to polish up a few areas and bring fresh energy to the space. During my travels, I came across a stunning gallery in downtown Santa Fe with these fabulous chilli-red walls. The hanging chillis of New Mexico were a feature throughout the road trip, and I wanted to bring some of that colour and depth into the space. Here are the photos, before, during and after, of my magnificent new red wall in the gallery part of the studio, which is the perfect shade to make the silver and turquoise pop! But this was just the beginning! I also gave the workshop area a complete overhaul,...
