NEW to my blog- Throwback Thursdays!
Each Thursday I’ll be posting some older pieces or photos for a little nostalgia.
For this first one, some pieces back from 2011!
^Natural old stock Royston turquoise ring with cigar band. Commissioned.
^Deep blue apatite gemstone clover and flower plugs. Commissioned.
^Commissioned ring based off of my original piece below. With high quality chrysocolla malachite stone. Quote is from one of my favourite poems of all time by Walt Whitman.
^Original with high quality Bloodstone and Baltic amber.
From the poem, “O Me! O Life!”
O Me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring;
Of the endless trains of the faithless – of cities fill’d with the foolish;
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light – of the objects mean – of the struggle ever renew’d;
Of the poor results of all – of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me;
Of the empty and useless years of the rest – with the rest me intertwined;
The questions, O me! so sad recurring – What good amid these, O me, O life?
That you are here – that life exists, and identity;
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”
Lastly, a handful of rings in front of one of my old watercolour paintings-
Next update Sunday!
