Brigid’s Jewels and the fire of inspiration

One of my recent jewelry creations, the Clockroach Earrings.

As my bio says, jewelry and storytelling are two of my lifelong passions. Jewelry is more than just a shiny thing or an expensive gift. It is a symbolic language which tells tales of who we are, what we value, where we’ve been… and perhaps where we’d like to go.

In addition to writing, I also tell stories made of brass and beads, rings and things. And I will be selling these narrative baubles at the Central NC Pagan Pride festival next weekend, Sept 17-18, with my friend Jill. We are calling ourselves “Brigid’s Jewels.” Brigid is the ancient Irish goddess of inspiration, poetry, and smithing. Seems appropriate, as I hammer on both a keyboard and a jeweler’s anvil.

I was hoping to have some promotional materials for my upcoming debut novel, Stellarnet Rebel, to give away at the festival. But the cover art isn’t finished yet. Hopefully, very soon. My editor and I are going over the very last final copy-edited version this week, which means the text will be DONE done, and finalized. Meanwhile, I work on the sequel…
