Constellations necklace
If any of you are going to DC for the big inaugural next week, drop by Mia Gemma. The store is just blocks from the White House and has recently added a selection of my jewelry designs to their display. I’m excited to have my work in the store; the staff are meticulously attentive and love what they do. Go visit!

I just had a birthday and my brother sent me the most amazing gift – a film he made using consecutive still photographs we shot when he visited me 3 years ago.

I had been commuting the full length of Manhattan several days a week and wanted somehow to describe the experience. Together we came up with the idea for this film and we spent hours riding the trains and taking pictures.

We didn’t shoot any film, just photographs one after another  (I can’t remember why) so when it came to editing it was an enormous task to stitch the photographs together, like an animation, and then edit that footage. But he did it, and I think it’s absolutely beautiful. What a gift! Thank you, Garth.
