Blue Crane

This slender piece of Nova Scotia red oak arches like a blue-eyed crane. The iron ring, representing unity, was forged over 100 years ago in one of the oldest working blacksmith shops in the country. Sitting on top of it is a tiny snake vertebrae and Swarovsky crystal. The blue agate slice from Brazil is like a world of tides and represents the waters essential to the cranes survival.

Obsidian Necklace

This unusual piece of obsidian has been cut and polished into a hexagonal shape on the black side, while the other remains raw with multiple layers of color throughout. It hangs from a brass chain interspersed with black glass beads attached to a strand of small coconut shell beads that pick up the earthy hues in the raw side.

Balanced with 4 "eyes", the driftwood in this mirror is from Nova Scotia, Cape Cod & Newport Rhode Island.

Armor II

Over the past few years I've enjoyed exploring the stunning landscapes in and around Bass River. This is the final homage to those visits.
