Happy New Year: From the Mundane to the Sublime

Hi, everyone! I hope this finds you off to a good start for 2024, either in the tropics or at home curled up with a good book. I’ve just finished “Covenant of Water” by Abraham Verghese and highly recommend his brilliant writing.

This morning, one of my colleagues posted a photo of a plastic bag filled with 250,000 carats of small diamond “melee,” the tiny gems that add sparkle to your pieces. These itty-bitty things are full cut diamonds, not chips and I laughed when I saw this grayish bag of stones. So plain yet so beautiful when set.  It’s all about potential, isn’t it?  


The next photo is of sublime star dust, taken through the James Webb telescope. Note the gemmy colors of star dust, tiny particles that have their own light refractivity. I love these photos for so many reasons and I’ll wager you do too.


From the mundane to the sublime, we keep striving.

Love from the studio,
