LIGHTNESS

It occurs to us‌ that before there were cameras, long before we understood the basics of optics or how sight and scope worked, there was light. And there is still light. And so, still, we are learning. To catch the light: to try, to attempt, to draw with light. To be, to write with light, to see. To experience, to open our hearts, to surrender to beauty and to be loved and to be loving. This is a kind of liberation. This lightness. How it calls us home. How the light transforms us, and how we (temporarily) transform it. Surrender to the light that you cannot catch, the parts you cannot see, but the warmth you can feel. Be your own camera, your own aperture, and your own essay of moments: let the light in, record what you see, and try and try again because in this you cannot fail. Be dazzled, be met with beauty, be surprised, be shadowstruck, be wonderfelled, be astonished, be the one who draws with light.

Poetry is often found in our relationship to the natural world, and in that which we can’t fully explain, but somehow know. We explore this wonder in what has become a most beloved signature piece of ours, Eveningstar. We rely on the moon and stars, we surrender to the light that we cannot catch, the parts we cannot see, but the warmth we can feel, knowing that we are always changing, always becoming.

MOONGA ZER DEDALIAN PENDANT

Sterling Silver, Bronze & Swarovski 1-7/16” | MG4M Z-SLK | $118 Reverse side shown above.

I was at dinner with my family and a few friends, and afterwards, there was a huge, full “Strawberry Moon” in the night sky. Something came over me – it has a pale pink champagne type of glow, and I thought how rare this moment is – a place in time with people I love that will never come again, lit by a moon that was so incredibly special. And so are we. I wanted to somehow capture that feeling in a simple and iconic design… a crystalfaced moon pendant spinner, revealing the precious reminder, “Rare” on the other side. We are rare and remarkable, this moon, every moon, every moment. WA X I N G P O E T I C | S P R I N G / S U M M E R 2 0 1 8

There is an abundance of wonder in this world that we can delight and take refuge in whenever we want. The Nature of Things collection celebrates that gift, pondering the encompassing sky that is a garden of stars, and the garden all around us, which is a living, breathing universe of wildflowers. And our own hearts: a garden, and a universe - wild and free and changing as it might WA X I N G P O E T I C | S P R I N G / S U M M E R 2 0 1 8 - unto its own.

When I am looking for answers and for connection, when the insubstantial things of life start to weigh on my spirit, I turn to the natural world. The MIRACLES all around us… beauty in flight, the impermanence that is life, the absolute wonder in these divine creations, that we also contain… it moves me so much. There is no way but to be in the moment when we are paying attention to this beauty. The thing that cures all, is this everything… and within, our WA X I N G P O E T I C | S P R I N G / S U M M E R 2 0 1 8 true nature emerges.

On my morning walks during a time when I felt particularly weak, I would say hello to the cactus blooms along the way, always inspired by the beauty that springs forth from such a seemingly inhospitable plant. Some days, the miracle of them kept me going.

How the blooms are protected by the cactus needles‌ how we can all soften in the light‌ so many mysteries held inside. Our hearts are not so different.

The truth is: we create our own worlds. I admire the ones who know this‌ the poets, the authors of beauty, the profound romantics who know no limits. Boho Soul was made with this spirit in mind: loose, free, unconventional and beautiful, capable of assembling and holding all the symbols of an effortless, connected way of being, and in doing so, expressing a taste and style all her own.

Our inner strength is made strong through connectedness, and out of that, beauty emerges. Expanding on our fascination with bees, their utmost importance to the balance of life, and the work they do, this collection came to life through the notion that the fabric of our existence is perhaps not so different from a honeycomb‌ a marvelous network of wonder, made possible by taking part in something larger. How miraculous, how worthy of our attention.

Perhaps the design that took the longest for us to create. The wings of this piece were fabricated by hand, twisting thin wire into rows to form the wings, then molded and cast. Bee Brave is meant to be a reminder of our inner strength through connectedness. Like bees, who work together to do so much, we are part of something larger.

My daughter recently said this to me, and I think it is so wise: “We carry love, and love carries us.� How powerful to understand how we need love and that we have the power to freely give Love. It is the one thing we truly have in vast resource if we know how to access it, no matter what age or circumstance. Through my practice of designing amulets, I am reminded of this dynamic, and am always brought closer to this truth within myself: Love is usually, always, the answer.

Designing with the Tree of Life symbol always makes me feel connected… like I come to know more about myself, and closer to God, by working with this timeless form.

As we move through life, we encounter all sorts of challenges that shape us. Though we may not know where we are at, we can hopefully trust the journey and process. We are like the hummingbird, one very small part of the whole of Life, moving through it, seeking sweetness and astonishing us with its natural beauty, yet caught in each moment, In Time. How one moment, one noticing, changes our world. We are all connected here, on this flight through time.

“Life is but a dream” is one of those lines from a children’s song that always captivated me… “merrily, merrily” moving me towards an acceptance of the lightness of being. Motherhood brought this song back to me, and with it, a lot of magic. It inspired this small collection of little clouds, the kind from dreams that still remain.

We don’t have to wait for the perfect situation to experience joy… we can change the world with our actions. I love exploring our divine connections when I design… hopefully, pieces that remind us of our faith beyond that is known, of our greatest powers, our truest essence. We have everything we need to “shine” as they say. We need to do this for ourselves, but even more importantly: by stepping into our own light, we light the way for others. This is our real illumination.

We were asked by many to reintroduce our Hero’s Cross this year… always one of my favorites, I was happy to oblige. Thinking back to when I made the waxes for this cross so many years ago… it felt familiar, like an amulet that was once mine in a former life. Cast in bronze, in its heavy oxy sterling setting, it becomes a sort of timeless treasure with a humble nobility that just works.

Because our silversmiths know who we are, and they enjoy working on our designs, we receive the gift of their care and craft in return. Thoughtful design is not just about what the piece means intrinsically, but also what it means to make. Giving our smiths the freedom to exercise their creativity gives them authorship as well. The impact of a design comes full circle when we learn from the process of working together – how we are mutually responsible to each other, and how we can constantly look for new ways to do what is best for each other.

53 The form your life takes, the form a

piece of jewelry takes. This design is a meditation on both. The shape and the outline, held together, in unison, held together in some sort of primitive way, but also here now. A sort of nomad in time.

A leaf is so spectacular‌ a small piece of the larger natural world. This ring came about in the same sort of way one might expect a real leaf ring could (if we were out in the garden trying)‌ shapes and balance, choosing just the right proportions. We worked on getting the finish just right, and I think we did! From the moment we all saw this ring, we fell in love. WA X I N G P O E T I C | S P R I N G / S U M M E R 2 0 1 8

LIVING Throughout my life, and especially in more recent times as I ’ve gone through some pretty traumatic events, I have come to discover that real living is all about lightness: recognizing the impermanence of life - how fleeting these moments are - how everything is constantly changing. Knowing this, I want to take the risk to make something that uncovers a new way to look at things... somehow getting to the universal truth of a piece, through themes like “light” and “bravery,” “nature” and “grace” - why these things are so valuable to us as we choose how we show up in the world every day. How we need to gift ourselves and each other the things that resonate on this journey, and how meaningful it can be to recognize a truth or feeling in a piece of jewelry. Ancient cultures knew this: they had special amulets and talismans for all sorts of needs: protection, remembrance, love, status, a sense of place and time. We are no different in this day and age. These tokens are of this life, and also very much of the lives that came before us. They are our eternity and our collective touchstones. The invisible thread between these pieces and all other things is what I am interested in exploring. How our jewelry can express so much of who we are, and also our magnitude and bond to each other. I hope what we do here at Waxing Poetic brings you delight in knowing this, and that you feel protected and loved living even closer to our belonging which can’t always be seen, but surely felt. with love,
