Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

I have been cooking up a different type of creative project these past two years! In July of 2019 we welcomed our first child Marcelo, who is the light of our lives and up until recently, the stealer of our nighttime sleep. He turned 9 months at the end of April and we feel beyond blessed to have him join our family. While most of my creative energy had been funneled into this little guy, recently I have dreaming up new designs and I have started to pick up from where I left off before he took over our worlds. The joys of motherhood are both exhausting and revitalizing, and I am excited to return to my jeweler's bench with a fresh vision.

Becoming a mother has been one of, if not the, most rewarding moments of my life. Every day brings a new experience that I could not have imagined; I have been able to live in the moment and cherish every new bit of "awakeness" that my son experiences. It also makes me reflect upon and celebrate the "motherly" traits that all people posses: nurturing, loving, patience, creativity. So Happy Mother's Day to those who are mothers, to those who wish they were, and to those who nurture and inspire the world around us!
