    Submission Numero 1, Por La Frontera

      #1 Ring- An Open and Shut Case I remember the first time my mother took me to Friendship Park, where the US/Mexican (Tijuana/San Diego) border meets and ends, in the Pacific Ocean. We watched the people who were gathered on either side, as they passed tamales and sandwiches through the gaps, exchanged kisses, greetings, […]

    Submission Numero 2, Por La Frontera

    #2 Necklace- Border Collar La Frontera, or The Border, brings to mind images of confinement, control, separation and a feeling of being trapped, but also the idea of hope. If one risks crossing, what lies ahead bears the potential for danger, suspense and conversely, a better, (hopefully) more fruitful life. Both the seduction and intrigue […]

    A Big Event and the Perfect Piece!

    I often feel the need to mark special occasions with extra special, creative and personal, “made with love” gifts. Long before the whole DIY movement, as a child, growing up in Palo Alto, an appreciation for the handmade was instilled into me by my parents. Both my father and mother would say, “Don’t buy me […]

A Soup for all Seasons!

Fall is here and although it seems as if the San Francisco summer finally is too, there is a slight nip in the air at night which makes me crave a good hearty soup. This is a recipe I have toyed with over the years but in it’s latest form, seems the most delcious. It […]
