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.
A couple months ago I ran into Stephanie, owner of the lovely shop Noun on SE Belmont that carried sulu-design seven years ago. We chatted for a while. We talked about Ohio and snow. She told me that she was sprucing up her shop; I told her about the jewelry I was working on at the time. We made plans to reconnect, which we did today. And I'm thrilled to say that you can again find sulu-design jewelry at Noun. Stephanie and her shop manager, Sohaila, picked out a nice selection of necklaces made of recycled glass beads from Africa:
I'm so pleased to have my designs alongside that of some of my favorite Portland jewelry designers, and am particularly happy to be working with Stephanie and Sohaila who are just downright nice ladies. The spruced up space looks great, too.
