The Latest Drops

These green necklaces are the latest
in my series of "drop" styles.
And the simple brass bead necklaces
have been best-sellers for years now.
Perfect for everyday and for layering.


African Glass

I've been making necklaces from
glass beads from Africa for a long time now.
I love the color, the shapes, and the rawness of the beads.


Do Not Adjust the Color on Your Screen

A handful of the most recent sulu-design pieces are
bright, bright, bright.
They've got more subtle counterparts, too.

Several new sulu-design collections to follow.
I was busy this weekend.


To Clarify

It's good.  It's all good.
I just don't have much to say about it all right now.

Wanting more rock, less talk, you know?


Before You Speak

There have been several changes in my life recently, but right now I don't feel like talking about them... or much else for that matter.  I read something the other day that made me think a lot about the amount of talking/typing I do: Before you speak, ask yourself if you can improve the silence.  Since the honest answer to that question is usually a "no" for me, I'll spare you more words and leave you with images from a gorgeous day that Barry and I spent together earlier this week, hiking at one of his favorite mountain biking spots in the Columbia River Gorge.  Halfway in, I laid on the grass and took a nap in the sun and felt which felt just about perfect.


All That Walking Makes a Gal Hungry

An awesome lunch at Nong's Khao Man Gai.
It's a lie that all they do is chicken and rice,
although they do chicken and rice really well.
They also do damn good pork and rice.

And dinner?
A bottle of wine,
a few tasty cheeses, and
a sampling of Olympic Provisions sausages.
All served up at Enso.

More from the Walk

We started in northwest.
Headed down the waterfront.
Over the Hawthorne Bridge.

The southeast industrial area is one of my favorite spots.
I dream of living in one of the old buildings there.

I love walking around close-in neighborhoods
between Burnside and Stark on the eastside, too.
Back over the Burnside Bridge and home for a rest.
What a difference the sun makes.


Looking Up (and Down)

 in Chinatown

at Waterfront Park

 strolling around Buckman

Barry's back.
We spent hours and hours
walking all over town with our cameras.
It was the most gorgeous weekend we've had all year.
