Fickle and Fine had our debut show here in Austin
as a participating vendor for Austins East Side Studio Tour.
Pleased to announce it was a great success!
Thank you all for your continued support!
Acorn as metaphor. This pendant represents all the promise and potential of a mighty oak. Containing the DNA required to create a tree that is capable of withstanding almost anything life blows through its boughs, the acorn is a seed. We each contain all we need to create something just as sturdy, far-reaching, deep-rooted, and beautiful. It’s in the dying each year that acorns drop from an oak’s branches. My little niece is less than two years old, yet she gathers these little seeds in the apron of her dress, and carries them like treasures across the yard. She sees what we must see…indeed, gifts from above.
In findings of silver and stone, I’ve created a mighty acorn for you. May it remind you of all you possess, talents ready to grow and give for a lifetime.
what lies behind us
and what lies before us
are tiny matters
compared to what lies within us…
quote investigator gives credit to henry haskins, meditations in wall street, 1940
this tough ring is a blend of ideas
the braided piece a reflection of how intertwined our lives become
the nailed piece a symbol of our creator
the woven waves allude to forward motion
i love the sturdy hardware look of this ring
on hands that do work… blue collar hands
these slices of stone slide through my thoughts today
as i contemplate what they will become…
