The "My Hometown" Collection

The "My Hometown" collection features jewelry made from local agatized coral. Florida does not yet recognize a state fossil, but its state stone, agatized coral, is actually a fossil. Agatized coral can be any of many species of corals which have been replaced by agate, a variety of quartz chalcedony. It takes a very long time to form, and most of the agatized coral found today in the state lived in the vast Eocene seas which covered the state 35-40 million years ago, when Florida was part of the continental shelf. All of the stones in this collection have been mined in various parts of Florida.

Agatized coral provides the primary energy toward the activation of the divine nature and infinite perfection which is within the self. Agatized Coral can facilitate the projection of energy to create, to sustain, to change, to modify....
Astrological sign is Pisces.

Here are a few photos I took while making Forest Bound. The torch turns the silver such pretty colors sometimes. :)

I just watched the most amazing short film ever. You can watch it here. ( click on the words "I put a spell on you")I wish everyday could be like this film. Its the kind of thing that really gets my creativity flowing. Its got beautiful imagery with a hint of spookiness to it. And the music, which features a couple songs by Glasser, just adds to the greatness of it. I wish I lived in the UK so I could get this issue of the magazine for $11 and have this kind of inspiration forever.
Here are a few screen shots from it, but you have to see it for yourself!

While your there, you should also watch the one "Her eyes are a blue million miles" with Miranda July in it. Its really sweet.
