RAW - the 52 week journey

mary jane dodd

'logic will get you from A to B.
imagination will take you everywhere.'
~ albert einstein


and the natural world will provide more to muse upon than anything else... 


this ring was made after a day spent going in and out of the house, noticing the fresh green shoots and leaves covered with the silvery veil of ici-ness which fell in the way of snow, sleet and hail... how fragile and yet hearty are the first stirrings of spring... 


while walking this week i noticed birds flying with grasses in their beaks; squirrels rustling through leaves, scampering up trees with their mouths filled... 


searching for the perfect fork in which to entrust their new homes... 

preparing for nests and the new life soon to follow... 




after seeing over 20 swans take flight in the river this morning, i was thinking of feathers and things aloft... things aloft and wishes... wishes and dandelion parachutes... 


floating gently away - carrying hopes and dreams with them...

here is the link to the flickr group where you can see some really terrific and imaginative work!

Oh goodness, these rings are gorgeous! I love the contrast between the complex and simplicity of the first, but have to say that the middle one really calls to me - it so multifaceted!
