Haiku and Jewelry - A Poetic Fit

To start this post - a quick reminder that everything green ships for free from our Etsy store through St. Patrick's Day!

Over on RioGrande's blog, The Studio, they are running a little contest that combines haiku and jewelry.  I couldn't resist the opportunity to try my hand - the act of designing and creating jewelry seems rather poetic as it is.  And you already know how I feel about the stories in the stones - there are tales to be told by the gemstones and jewels in our lives.

So here are my two little haiku offerings ...

gemstone bead demands
the company of sterling
wisdom bows and nods

these stones are silent
yet there are stories inside
design is language

That last line "design is language" really resonates for me.  Design is how we interpret the stories in the gemstones, and give those stories voice.  Might be corny, I know, and yet I still believe it.  :)

  1. It also reminded me of Art Deco Fashion Jewelry and how I'd recently discovered that he loves.

    Thanks for this fabulous post! I have seen such beautiful jewelry but never knew the name of the maker. I'll keep my eyes open now. I can see how stunning these would look on a solid colored outfit.

    You have a great eye! Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Thanks for sharing your collection. Its always a treat to read about someones personal collection, and why they love what they love. These jewelry are stunning, they must look fabulous with a little black dress.
