Love Letter to the Night Sea

Recently on a trip away from my current forest home to the central coast of California, I was reminded how much I love the sea. In particular, I love the night sea… During a long walk under the silvery moonlight with the waves crashing at my feet, I was inspired to create my latest collection- A Love Letter to the Night Sea

Upon seeing a sneak peak of this new collection, a friend of mine (who I consider to be a brilliant writer) was inspired as well…

A Love Letter To The Night Sea…

“Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
’til your singing eyes and fingers
drew me loving to your isle
and you sang
sail to me…
sail to me…
let me enfold you”

-Song To The Siren

 The last image in the sailor’s eye, a dance of silver, a shimmering glint of abalone, of ocean and pearl.

 The power of wanderlust has brought her far from her own coastal home, and this homesickness for the Ocean is the essence of Rosa’s new collection, A Love Letter To The Night Sea. The romance between human and ocean has existed since the beginning of time. Greek mythology tells of the sirens, their beauty and the lure of their haunting song enticing sailors to crash their boats along the rocks of their jagged shores, lost to the depths forever. The Irish believed in the mythic half seal women, who left behind their rich seal skins to walk on land and take human lovers. But the call of the ocean often got the best of the Selkie brides, who abandoned their husbands and families. Unable to deny their one true love’s beckoning, they would return to the sea.

This collection is the relationship between the lovelorn and the sea. It is the moonlight on ocean, the glitter of the breakers in the distance. These pieces are the last tokens of love left, by the sea’s mysterious creatures, mementos of the broken hearted mermaids, who chose the tide over the lover.

Rosa has said that is the control of the silver, the ability to mold and bend it lovingly to her will, that is the part of the empowering and magical artistic process she is blessed to experience. Like the ocean that cuts away at earth, forging the coastline and its ancient beauty, each piece is a delicate seascape, a coastline of metal, crafted by that same passion and pull of the tide.

Welcome to Spring!

Spring is in the air and I’ve finished my Spring 2013 Collection, Desert Flower.

Today is the Vernal Equinox. The Vernal Equinox or ‘equal night’ is when the sun is over the equator, and there is about an equal amount of day and night all over the world. Then, as we head toward summer, we can enjoy longer days ahead! This means warmer weather, lighter layers of clothing, and the return of organic life to a frosty landscape.

I’ve been tucked away all winter in my forest studio working on my Desert Flower Spring Collection. Inspired by my time in Santa Fe and also by my childhood- filled with the awe of seeing beautiful flowers spring forth from cacti and other native desert plants. And now, I’m excited to share my vision with you!
