I will be participating on a research project in Kenya tracking lions this summer. I will be out of the country from June 8 - August 14. I will not have access to email during this time, and will not be shipping orders. Thanks for your patience.

From water’s movements to the moon’s surface, there is an otherworldly quality to Kate Finley’s inspiration. In a way, her jewelry collection was formed years ago, with an astronomy course in which she “held” a projected image of the moon in her hands. “I can’t quite explain the sensation other than that it was a bit surreal and totally magical,” Kate says. Soon after, she embarked on her first-ever journey alone, a solo trip to Kenya. “Knowing that my family could see the moon too was comforting in a way, even if it wasn’t at the same time. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, how foreign your surroundings, how upside down you might feel, at some point during the day or night you can usually catch a glimpse of the moon.” Using the laborious reticulation process, Kate aims to capture the surface of the moon, as well as the constantly shifting surface of the sea. “I find water soothing to my soul, and I like the interconnectedness that the tidal pulls from the moon creates on earth.” By repeatedly heating and cooling sheets of metal, Kate creates textured jewels as unique as fingerprints.

Most of us have a tendency to get wrapped up in the everyday mundane and fail to notice that there is art all around us, everywhere we look. Where do you see art?
I started to work on this blog but that dog up there distracted me with his antics. Check back soon though--surely he can't keep this up all day.
