Today was peaceful,beautiful & hot as fish grease!...I spent some time chatting away on the phone with my loved one. An apple flavored white iced tea in one hand with Mos Def's Casa Bey in my ears. Even though today was an extremely lazy one for me,It felt good just to stop & take some time for myself. I forgot about all the million things that needed to be done...just for today. This was all I needed to feel refreshed & inspired so in honor of my special day I made this wrap around necklace & bracelet. :)

New! Eagle Nebula Collection


Here is an itty-bitty little sneak peek at some of the latest jewelry I have been working on. These 4 pieces are from my Galactic Soul Collection. I wanted to try something a little bit different but definitely keep it funky ;)
I had so much fun with these! I will have a very limited number of these available soon on my online store, as the rest will be sold at the shows I have coming up (see my event schedule).
Lots more on the way so stay tuned!

All New handmade Goodness

Hey everyone! I tell you its been a crazy creative month for me so far. Lately Ive been spending most of my free time indoors due to the insane weather we have been having here in Seattle. These constant changes with the weather has played a huge part in my being sick with the flu for over two weeks, but I still managed to crank out all new handmade goodness. Here are just a few of the latest pieces I have just listed in my store.
Also Im am working on participating in some shows this summer where I will be selling my jewelry. I will fill you guys in on the when's & where's at a later date!
Peace

The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture is slated to open its doors in 2015. In the meantime, the Museum has already begun its exciting mission of exploring and celebrating the depth and breadth of the African American experience.

At this momentous time in American history, the program will explore the power of African American oral traditions in the shaping of American culture. From children's rhyming games to shaping the destiny of the nation, Black oratory has played a major role. The power of persuasion in the pulpit, home, barber shop, political arena, and more will be presented. From poetry to storytelling, from journalism to debate, we will hear from some of the most dynamic speakers of our age. Through the power of words, African Americans have given voice to the needs, hopes, aspirations, and dreams of a people.

The program will include performance stages as well as interactive, more intimate spaces, where audiences can discuss both the aesthetics and meaning of oral traditions with Festival participants. The program is deigned to inspire, and to give insight into the aesthetics of language, as well as the cultural, social, political and religious issues that inform it, from an African American perspective.
