Inspired by Ravens

Some say ravens point travelers in the right direction, some say a single raven is a sight of good fortune to come, but a sight of many ravens means trouble ahead.

Every time I see someone’s art, the gift of nature’s beauty or a sense of spirit I’m grate­ful, I’m inspired! With some, the inspi­ra­tion is so pow­er­ful I have to weave some beads and cre­ate a lit­tle piece of art myself! It’s a thrilling ride, a color fes­ti­val and I don’t want to go home.

Again it’s time to share a pow­er­ful gift…Ravens! Thoughts and visu­als pro­vided me to cre­ate another visual expe­ri­ence that will delight the eyes and lift the spirits!

Inspired by the Two Face Moon

Use the energy of the moon and wear this symbol to state your universal intention to use your intuition, to simply go with what you feel and to know that to do this is for your greater good.

Inspired by The Southwest

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for ~ Georgia O’Keeffe.

Inspired by My Customers

When I’m asked to do a custom order its both thrilling and challenging! I love listening to the words of a vision that my customer have thought out, colors, stones and style!  Then, form that vision from their words into a piece of jewelry.  I always learn something new while  new ideas spring forward from working with them. 

One of my favorite custom made customers is Shawna. Met Shawna through my Etsy shop around three years ago and started making custom jewelry for her.  Though we have never met in person she has become a friend, collaborator, I trust Shawna and her vision, I let her words into my mind to create something wonderful and its so satisfying. 

Shawna writes:  Cheri’s free-form peyote stitch embodies a delightful whimsy and character that is almost meditative in quality. Her designs exude a playfulness that is intuited through use of the most wonderful and complementary color and material combinations. There is so much beauty found within her designs. Although by definition, freeform implies irregularity or asymmetry, Cheri manages to maintain a beautiful harmony that is pleasing to the eye and arresting to the beholder; Each finished piece offering an abundance of thoughtfully placed seed beads, bezeled gemstone cabochons and metal findings. A longtime favorite artisan of mine and having collaborated with Cheri now on a few custom projects, each instance has been a fully enjoyable experience for me. The final jewelry piece inevitably always takes my breath away. Cheri’s work is an absolute joy to admire, much like witnessing the magnificent glints of beautiful colors in the night sky when the Aurora Borealis is in its’ full splendor. Her creations are truly special statement pieces that I will always treasure!

Inspired by The View of the Lake

I will arise and go now, for always night and day, I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
