how to have a conversation with the universe

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far beyond the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
It has an inner light, even from a distance

and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.
-Rilke

Enter each day with the expectation that the happenings of the day may contain a clandestine message addressed to you personally. Expect omens, epiphanies, casual blessings, and teachers who unknowingly speak to your condition."

made of: silver, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: Without the ear wires, the earrings measure almost an inch and a half long and just over half of an inch wide. The handmade ear wire is about 7/8ths of an inch long and can be fastened securely .
process: The enameling process for making these earrings is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange tiny fragments of text and imagery from many different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
