Looking, playing and designing with beautiful gemstones has cured me of my insatiable jewelry collecting habit. I no longer feel the need to own and hoard jewelry. I now hoard gemstones! There's no stopping me when I see something I love...you know the feeling...it's mine no matter what.

Bronze Sculpture I
Maybe this blog should be named Cool Stones and Hot Metals. This is one of my bronze castings. I sculpt in primitive styles because I love it. I continue to sculpt in this style because that's my only capacity when it comes to working with my hands. Yes, I'm very limited. Good thing is, I'm not interested in looking at perfect facsimile of a person or animal cast in bronze. There are plenty of people who can do that well. Just look at all the garden sculptures and you'll see what I mean. I want to look at an artist's interpretation of something. Interpretations often involve personal experiences, twisted translations, passionate opinions and tainted glasses.
