Nature soothes, heals and restores. It’s a scientific fact that numerous research studies have proven. Spending time in nature lowers blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension and the production of stress hormones. Spending time outside also promotes psychological and physical wellbeing and combats feelings of depression, sadness and stress. Some studies have shown that even having a plant in a hospital room can help us cope much better with pain.
Take time to heal this year and spend some time each day in nature. Put down your phone and take a walk in the woods, along the beach or just hang out in your yard. Breathe, relax and let nature soother your mind, body and spirit.

Each Inspire Me Necklace is handmade in my Vermont studio. Want to know how?
I begin with a sheet of heavy gauge pure copper. The discs are made and formed, and the hole for the cord is cut out. Following a dip in an acid bath (for cleaning) and a thorough rinsing, each piece is enameled with several coats of enamel (finely ground glass powder) front and back. Between coats of enamel they are fired in my kiln at 1450°.
After 3 coats the lettering is applied and the piece is fired one more time. Each piece is then inspected, and any excess glass is ground off from the sides of the piece before the final sanding.
The adjustable cord is made, then the piece is assembled, photographed, and placed into inventory.
