It seems that I am at that time in my life where everyone I know has been having kids. After countless baby showers I started to get bored of seeing (and buying) the same gifts over and over. Although they were useful, I started to feel that I wanted to add in something a little more personal. So I decided to make some rattles! It was a super fun, challenging project that I had complete creative freedom with and I loved it.

This was a super fun piece to make! Commissioned by a husband that adored his wife's beautiful hair, for their wedding anniversary I couldn't help but put in some extra time on this piece to make it really special. The stick, and branches are mokume gane, which I forged from scratch using sheet metal, and the cherry blossoms are copper and silver married metals.
I will be adding pictures of The West (Home) Collection here as a edit them. Please check them out and tell me what you think.
The whole collection is currently at Shoes & Such, but they will be available for purchase on the website in the next few months.
My moms desire to explore took my siblings and I all over the west. Often times she would take us out of school without notice, pack us into the van, and just start driving. I continued exploring the beauty of the west on my own as a teenager, and adult. Over the last few years I've been having these landscape ideas, in nostalgic moments. So I've finally put pencil to paper, and came up with this line. I will only be releasing a few select pieces of this line, and I expect them to be done sometime before Thanksgiving. I will probably exhibit them at Shoes and Such. More Photos will be posted shortly. The piece shown below is one of three lockets.
