A friend picked up this child’s chair at the Bantry market and the seat was damaged so I wove it with sea grass. I love working with natural materials like this!

Don’t be left out! The Adjustable is a custom ring made to fit easily on your finger when you have enlarged knuckles.  I have made several of this type of ring, each one unique in design but with the same function.  It has to be comfortable to wear and adjustable.

When a body changes from the effects of surgery, arthritis, accident or enlarging of the knuckles or any other reason it is not easy to find jewelry.  If a finger doesn’t conform to standards (and lets be honest…who would want to anyway?) a ring is either too loose or tight. People struggle to find the right fit. How many times did you try something on to find that you couldn’t get it off?

A solution to this is a ring that fits comfortably and can be taken on and off with ease, no matter what shape of finger.   All the customers who have bought an adjustable ring are delighted with the result.  It is open on one side so that you can adjust the fit. Try it and see!

Ring the bells that can still ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack in everything

That’s how the light gets in

Detail from one of my pen and ink drawings.

I just made a batch of hand salve. My neighbor has a huge amount of marigolds in her organic garden this year. She allowed me to pick some flowers. With a friend, we separated the petals. Afterward,  we made an infusion from this with organic oil.

In July I got a GREAT gift of beeswax from another friend. This years bees wax from her organic vegetable farm looks like a river of gold. The organic lavender essential oil was added to line the small pots at the end. DIVINE GOODNESS!

It kind of smells like bubble gum.

I love to recycle jewellery. I love the fact that we can take something that has been worn and re-work it so it can be enjoyed again and again. It confirms my belief that we have what we need already, just need to have the imagination to see what it can become.

This was a bracelet that broke and from it I made two rings and a pendant. If you have silver like this that cries out to be re-worked, send it to me to be transformed. This works well with all types of sterling silver jewelry. 


The India Fund was intiated by a friend in my community. One necklace from Cloud Jewellery, Blue Agate and Moonstone Necklace,  was offered this week in a raffle to raise money for a family in India that wishes to start their own small business. It is a pleasure support others in their goal to be self employed.
