"To the illuminated mind the whole world burns and sparkles with light." Emerson
May the sun bring you new energy by day, May the moon softly restore you by night, May the rain wash away your worries, May the breeze blow new strength into your being, May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life. - apache blessing

I was browsing at Sundance Catalog and came across an artist who I have loved for a long long time, Jeanine Payer: "Artist Jeanine Payer sifts through archives unearthing quotations of universal significance and snippets of poetry that summon powerful emotions. The words, hand engraved on precious metals in a diminutive version of her own graceful script, endow her delicate pieces with a kind of magic, so that each takes on the allure of a talisman graced with both beauty and wisdom."
If you know one thing about me, know that I am a silver and quotes girl from way back when. I just adore the casual simplicity of the jewelry - I think I rubbed off a little on my daughter as we both love the same kind of jewelry (which comes in handy.) Although I don't own any of Jeanine's jewelry, if I could choose a few pieces, the ones above are my faves! Check out all the artists at Sundance - they are fabulous!
