Trusting the Process

 

trust_3_blog

I’ve been in the transition from artist to teacher for a few years now, and as one of my amazing mentors Michelle Vos says, it’s a marathon, not a sprint.   Well said right?!   For years now (this is not an exaggeration) I’ve wanted to make the decision.  Decide what to do with Luscious Metals, decide how to move forward in a coaching capacity.  But this transition has been a process and a practice in patience.  Grrrr.  Up until this point, I simply didn’t have the clarity I needed to make the decisions.  Life is like that you know?  We want something now.  We want the change now.  We want the fruit now.  But it doesn’t work like that.  I liken it to a growing season; if we want to harvest, we have to do the work.  We need to plant the seeds and water the garden and that takes time, but what we learn about the land along the way is invaluable to the process.  The answers simply don’t present themselves without doing the work.

Last night there was the second eclipse of a 2 part series.  The first eclipse on March 20 coincided with the  spring equinox and was a solar eclipse on a new moon.  The eclipse was all about release. What am I leaving behind?  In a nutshell, needing to know.  I’ve driven myself almost crazy trying to know.  I wanted to know what to expect, where I stood, what to do.  In The Secret to Achieving Your Goals class that I teach, there’s an entire section in the curriculum dedicated to the idea that “success is just a decision away.”   I believe that to be true but in this case it took me 2 years to be able to apply that concept to my career.   In my case, the decision I had to make was to be okay with not knowing.  It was really easy.  And just making that single decision felt like an entire growing season filled with drought and fire.  But once I got there, some answers started to appear.  And that brings me to now, still soaking in the charge of the full moon eclipse that occurred last night.  This eclipse was all about making the shift, changing.  So I’m setting intentions and making plans that feel really good.  I’m bringing in fresh energy to create what I want and transitioning.   There are still so many unknowns but I’m okay with that.  I’m trusting the process.  Taking it one tiny step at a time feels good and the tiny step for this week is to put a ton of the jewelry I have in the studio on sale.  Check out that sale here.  There are old and new pieces, one of a kind and some production — everything is beautiful!

So my question for you is what are you releasing?  What do you intend to bring more of into your life in these next few months?

The (incredible) lightness of being

Our Winged Heart is in a beautiful Etsy treasury! I love getting included in Etsy treasuries and this particular one especially. The very title is so fitting with the direction my work has gone in terms of making pieces centered around manifestation and mindfulness. I’m also in awe of the visual aspect of the treasury as a whole. Not only do the silky blue and dusty ivory color palette remind me of oceans, sands, angels and skies; but the artists pieces whom she has also featured delight me. Take a look at The Fox Prince (I’m in love and he’s a FOX!). Plus I’m all about making wishes, so this aptly titled Make a Wish dandelion photograph also makes perfect sense. Thank you Griselda from Awesome Art, lovely work!

Making things

It was a beautiful summer morning in Boulder Colorado. We gathered in the lovely Hot Mama- Sugar Soul Studios, nestled right up against the foothills and we made things. We hammered and we talked, we filed and we told stories, we brainstormed and let our imaginations go wild. The pendant making class was a success!

Thanks ever so much to Shannon and Sahra (who did all the prep work…Yay Sahra!), and to all of the cool women who took the class. What a blast! Do you want to learn how to make jewelry? Stay tuned for future classes, we have a few in the works.

Firefly Gypsy Farm Market


It’s official–we’re headed to Boulder’s most fabulous craft fair–The Gypsy farm Market–September 17th and 18th. This is the third event produced by Firefly Handmade and you don’t want to miss this show–it’s one of those things you’ll hear people gushing about afterwards and be all envious that you didn’t make it.

This is an absolutely amazing little market full of hand crafted art made by people that live in Colorado. It’s like Etsy come to life–there are paintings and clothing, jewelry and sculpture, gorgeous body oils and letterpress and the list goes on. This is a juried show which means that the quality of the work being shown is all judged by specific standards. In other words, you won’t have to sift though booths of crocheted pot holders in Broncos colors (and yes–I worked a fair once where my booth neighbor was indeed selling those) in order to find the cool stuff. To whet your appetite for everything fabulously handmade and available for purchase at the market, please check out their blog, where they post daily about featured artists.

Perfectly Peridot

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — Natha @ 1:49 pm

For all of you Leo’s and Virgo’s out there, you already know that the august birthstone is peridot…and for the rest of us (who have been obviously swept into some kind of time warp and can’t believe it could possibly be august already) well, now you know too. It’s time to celebrate the lush green beauty of the gemstone peridot. Our handmade Spellbound Ring got featured in a beautiful Etsy treasury showcasing so many lovely shades of green…such a fitting color to celebrate at the height of our summer growing season. Thanks for including us sharonclancydesigns! (who makes fabulous jewelry herself–check out her shop)!
