Just thought I would share new silk bracelets....they are lovely. I am really getting the hang of them, and the clasps are new and improved. The coolest part about having work downtown whitefish is knowing folks can come in, even request products that they have seen on Etsy or wherever, and I will eventually hear from Leslie, the shop owner, about it.....feedback is one of the coolest parts about having real, live, personal, and tangeable space for public eyeballs....

We soaked in white sulphur springs with lovely friends from the flathead, then drove to chico hot springs and soaked...and prayed our camper would keep us warm...

Rag and Stone ~ Erin Hawley ~ Local Artist
Wearing jewelry is a very individual and sentimental experience. Like people, stones all have their own personalities, strengths, colors, and weaknesses. I try to bring the personality of the stone and the metal to the forefront and tell a story around its existence.
Silverwork is a very personal process for me, as stone and story are the two parts of my work I enjoy most. I focus on the integrity of the stone and the story it provides to connect the human existence in jewelry. If you wear it, if it is touching you, it will affect you. If you believe that your stones are powerful, then they are.
Jewelry integrated in daily life as amulets, magnets, charms, and talismans can remind us that we are unfinished pieces of artwork and we can improve upon our divine design. We are a story in the process of being written.
