The grass is always greener on the other side, right?
We always want what we can't have.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Trust me to (now that we're galloping towards winter) be dreaming about sunsets. We were just there, basking in a summer daze, and now as the leaves fall, I'm dreaming of that glow again. But you know what? I think I like it like that... The idea of what's on the other side of the moment... Some people might call it a personality flaw - to always be thinking about what's coming next... but I think it's more like hope and excitement for the roller coaster of life.

Don't get me wrong, it's a fine art of patience, understanding and flexibility that can allow you to think about what isn't right in front of you whilst still sucking the juice out of the current moment in life. And it's taken me a long time to get here. To the now.

But while I'm here enjoying this journey every step of the way, I've always got room for what I see on the horizon. I've just learned to trust that no matter how much I may want it to be here right now... It'll come around soon enough and then it will be gone. Onto the next thing.

So right now I'm enjoying making things (like this necklace and ankle cuffs) and letting the 'hands-on' side of me lead a little more. I've been cooking, designing and studying some of the things I loved learning about when I was younger, especially Ancient Egypt (hence the necklace). I've also been downsizing the clutter in my wardrobe, jewellery box and office space, but more on that later.

I recently found a bunch of rings that mean a lot to me... Not really my style anymore to wear just a single ring, so I stacked them all together and have totally given them a new life! The two matching diamond bands were my Grandmother's wedding and eternity ring and the the emerald and diamond ring was a 21st birthday present from my Mum that we designed together.

Now every time I wear them I feel some kind of a connection to my roots... some kind of comfort from afar.
