Grave of  Antoine Michel Wemaer (1768 - 1837) 
More to come…
"When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age."

"Mourning in the Parlour" - first creation for our Fall 2014 jewelry collection.
Thick velvet drapes are drawn to keep out the day’s light, but through the lazy gaps tiny beams of sunlight catch flecks of dust that float weightlessly through the quiet parlour. A single oil lamp glows dimly, casting soft shadows on heaps of sweet smelling flowers which encapsulate a dark mahogany coffin. Inspired by the romantic allure of Victorian mourning fashion and culture. Center 12mm beautiful natural deep black jade sphere is surrounded by tiny 2mm natural smooth black onyx cabochon stones.

Bobtail squid are tiny nocturnal cephalopods that only reach about 2 inches long. In the daytime, they use their tentacles to bury themselves under the sand and remain undisturbed.
Here is an awesome video of one burying itself.
