“California redwoods are something to behold. Sheer awe. It’s the most healing experience you can find. It just makes you tingle.” — Ed Gilbert, Redwood Legacy Circle member
“Redwoods make people feel centered and connected to the planet. The length of time they’ve been standing — they are a testament to the past.” — Rose Marie Cleese, Redwood Legacy Circle member

This batch of rings is headed out the door today, and I’m feeling so grateful. Grateful to be creating, learning, and connecting. I don’t know if it’s just the nature of this time of year, but things feel so messy right now. I’m trying not to let the clutter of life and unfinished business get to me, and trying to stay focused on moving forward, one step at a time. So when things do get finished, and when I can check even just one thing off the to do list, it feels sooooo good. That’s not to say there isn’t a million other things to tackle right after, but for just a moment, I’ll bask in the satisfaction of having accomplished something, no matter how small. Here’s to a productive start of a new week - what are you planning to get done today?...
Beneath the forest floor, a web of roots supports ...
Beneath the forest floor, a web of roots supports the life above it through interconnected channels of communication. A forest is the epitome of harmony, an environment where thriving depends on the wellbeing of the collective. When one tree struggles, the rest provides. Roots are the root of it all—the source of nourishment, information and exchange.
I’m starting a collection of roots-inspired pieces to honor those unseen forces that make life possible, and to serve as a reminder to plant your own roots in healthy soil, where they can grow and mingle with the roots of others. A small batch will be released later this month....
Magical corners of Oakland include Redwood Regional Park, full of kid-friendly "hikes" and trees whose heights will impress. .
We are proud to #Stand4Redwoods in collaboration with savetheredwoods. .

There’s nothing like some really big trees to put things in perspective. We’ve got a new blog post about our visit the the world’s tallest trees in the Redwood Forest. Link in our bio. .

Making more sequoia and redwood pieces for all you tree lovers. I’ve got some simpler pieces like these classic sequoias and other previous designs, along with a new collection of statement pieces coming soon. Who’s in the mood for trees?? 🙋♀️
The one year anniversary of my shop is also coming up — I’ll be doing something a little special for that, so stay tuned!...

The roots gang! Managed to finish two more pieces in between market prep and customs. These were all very experimental, playing with layers and texture, a creative project without much of a plan. Sometimes you need a little play time in the studio! Available this Thursday, May 23. Which one is your favorite?...
The Giant Sequoia - sequoiadendron giganteum. Major tree hugging potential and a true wonder of nature. To show my appreciation for the magnificent redwoods of the west coast, I’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds from my shop to organizations that help protect the natural treasures of our country, starting with Save the Redwoods League savetheredwoods. These guys are involved in multiple projects aimed at protecting and restoring redwood forests. .
One of their current campaigns is raising donations to purchase privately owned land containing over 100 ancient giant sequoias to ensure their long-term survival. Any donations made by JUNE 25th will be matched, so you bet I’ll be meeting this deadline! Read more about this project (and donate!) here: https://www.savetheredwoods.org/project/red-hill/
The trees thank you for your support :) .

Just got back from a couple days spent in the Humboldt and Del Norte coast redwoods. I went to college at Humboldt State, so it was nice to revisit a few new and familiar locations as well as briefly catch up with some friends.
Although the weather was pleasant, I unfortunately picked the days with the hottest temps and least interesting conditions to visit and photograph the rhododendron blooms. I was hoping for fog which would have made for some dramatic photos, but I had to make the best of the unfavorably contrasty light. I kept my long lens on and opted for trying to pick out smaller, more simple scenes of the blooming rhododendrons amidst the chaos of the redwood forest....
Seasonal changes are subtle in California. But ...
Seasonal changes are subtle in California. But they’re there. If you open your senses, you’ll notice the mornings getting crisper, the fog more persistent and the light more golden. The scent of dried redwood sprigs and eucalyptus. Turbulent ocean waves and rolling yellow hills. Ever so gently, fall makes its entrance....
As a kid, we often drove up to the Sierras to spend our vacations. The mountains provided solace and retreat from our busy lives. We’d visit the sequoia groves and stand humbled beside their massive trunks, which soared to unfathomable heights. I walked by the same trees year to year—the Old Bachelor with his knotted branches and the Twins, who grew so close together their trunks merged. These trees became familiar, like old acquaintances. Certain trees just leave an impression you, don’t they. Is there a tree like that for you?
Sterling silver and emerald, hand built with love. Summer collection available later this month ☀️🌲...
