Beauty in Daily Life

Life seems pretty overwhelming sometimes, doesn’t it? It can be hard to find the time and energy to just catch my breath. And that’s in retirement!!

Creative expression is one of the things that keeps me on an even keel.

In my “metal life”, I get to bend metal to my will (within Mother Nature’s rules, of course) and translate the visions in my mind into wearable pieces of art. Few things are more satisfying than that! Better yet, people tell me they still wear and enjoy jewelry I made years ago. It feels like little bits of me are out there walking around in the world, adding a smidge of beauty to daily life.

We can all use more of that.
