“Amelia…The most difficult thing…”
Amelia was my inspiration for so many things while growing up. She achieved greatness in a field that was dominated by men. Although Earhart’s convictions were strong, challenging prejudicial and financial obstacles awaited her. Earhart felt the flight proved that men and women were equal in “jobs requiring intelligence, coordination, speed, coolness and willpower.” I created this piece to honor her spirit, and inspire others to believe in what they can achieve.
“Don’t ask for the moon…”
This particular quotation reminds me to be grateful. I find that I sometimes forget to cherish that which lies right in front of me. When I think of this quote, I want to slow down, smile to myself, and then think about some of the things that I take for granted sometimes.
Sometimes a single word is enough to convey meaning to the present moment. I am fascinated by Angels, and have found that the wing, in particular, symbolizes many things for different people. Freedom, hope, peace, warmth, and inspiration are just a few of the words I’ve heard associated with the image of an Angel wing.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”
Leonardo da Vinci tried to understand the world and phenomenon by observing and describing every detail. He did not emphasize experiments or theoretical explanations. In doing so, I think his real gift was not drawing a line between science and art. I find that is the sophistication he speaks about. This pendant keeps it simple.
“Winter is on my head…”
I loved being able to make a snowman, and it always made the winter seem a little bit magical. This quote by Victor Hugo also reminded me that the winter would not last forever, so enjoy it while you can.
“Write it on your heart…”
As the tiny cherub writes on the romantic heart, Emerson reminds us to be grateful on a daily basis. “Every day is the best day…” We have the power to make it a great day.
“Roses in December…”
I created this design because I was reminded of the beautiful table centerpieces that I made for our Christmas Eve dinners. One year, I grew so tired of pointsettias, so I began using red roses in a large vase, with bare tree branches that I sprayed white. I adore “roses in December”.
“Every star is heaven’s…”
The tiny inscription on the star reads, “land softly”. On the coldest nights in Northern Michigan, the stars were unbelievably bright. The colder the night, the clearer the sky, and bright, shiny stars to enjoy.
The beauty of the winter season is sometimes overshadowed by its length. This is beautiful thought to suggest having a determined spirit in all of our endeavors.
