5 Years.

Sometimes, I get distracted and miss the Big Moments. Yesterday was one - the 5 Year Anniversary of the opening of my shop at Etsy. The changes my shop and my work have seen since I first began this little business are immense—and I can only imagine what Clementine Jewelry will look like in another five years.

Help me celebrate, won't you? Use the coupon code 5YEARS for 20% off your entire order in my shop through Jan 31st. Because none of this would be possible without you.

Winter's Palette

The bluest light. Long shadows. Taupe and coal black and white and deepest green and, around here, a pop of barn red.

Natural history.



Who's got two thumbs and didn't take her camera with her on her trip down to DC recently? This lady!

So I stoled me some pix from my friends Eren and Joy (who just got married a couple weeks ago, holla!)

My favorite: the mineral and gem exhibit at the National Museum of Natural History. Joy invented a new grading scale for all the stones: necklace or kitchen countertop? Every stone was one or the other. You can play along below!

Winter's Design

When you strip away all the color and the lushness, what's left is purely light and dark: exquisite texture, endless pattern. Browsing through some old photos, I found these from an ice storm several years ago. I find the crystaline structures here to be endlessly inspiring, don't you? I'd say there's more than a little correlation between these photos and my current work. The play of light on a landscape encased in ice - is there anything more stunning?
