"MAGGIE'S PIECES OF ART
Looking at them,
I am always impressed by the way she includes natural "textures" in her pieces;
I perceive the nearness of the east coast, of the ocean, of the nature's gifts in her creations.
You want to feel them, touch them, and wear them.
The perfect union of nature and art.
The perfect way to remember my vacations on the East Coast.
The perfect way to stay in touch with a friend.
Life as Art, Art as Life : Maggie's creations."

I have decided to have some weekly/monthly posts to connect you all with my work and more importantly how much fun it is to wear! Introducing "What to Wear"
What am I wearing?
I decided to where a few pieces from my ECHO Collection. The floating pearl ECHO necklace is the newest addition. I love the little pop of perfection the pearl creates. The ECHO pearl drop earrings were the perfect pair of earrings to finish the look.
How does it make me feel?
Today I feel inspired, bright and beautiful. Summer is around the corner and I have a feeling this will become my go-to jewelry.
The jewelry choices up close and personal:

Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
Don't Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a protection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.
Don't Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely trasform your life.
Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment. It will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgement, self abuse and regret.

I am making friends with clarity. Clarifying relationships with work, friends, wants, needs, feelings, fears and everything in between. The first relationship I am working on is with myself. I am taking note of the words I use and the thoughts that linger. The veil is so thin some days and I can feel myself pulsing with inner joy and other days are thick and foggy. I am looking forward to how my life will unfold as I step more deeply into me.

Went out with my crafty sisters to see this great documentary on the crafting revolution happening in America. It was great to dive into the world of craft and I would highly recommend this film to anyone interested in investigating their creative juices.
The director, Faythe Levine, answered questions after the movie. She was great and was definitely a highlight of the night. A three year commitment that is coming to a close for her, but I believe this is only the beginning for what she has uncovered, celebrated and presented to the world.
I have struggled in the past with the fine art versus craft issue and I feel as if I have never felt complete comfortable in either world. As my jewelry business has grown, I find myself focused on creating my own pieces instead of spending my time as a designer and buyer of other's great ideas. The journey into jewelry making is taking on a new life and I am eager to see where it leads me. This documentary was a great reminder to settle into who you are and make what you make with out questions. Removing judgement and giving into your creative center is essential and something I can lose sight of when I start to think about how to sell and what to sell. Back to creating for art sake!
Thanks Faythe! Thank you to my lovely art community here in Maine always supporting me on the journey!
