New jewelry in the studio+ where to find it elsewhere in Portland

Happy New Moon.
Plant your seeds of intention today.
Here are a few new designs:
Some are on their way to Radish Underground, where I will be the featured artist of August, and some will find a home over at Noun, where Stephanie has carried my work for almost 5 years now-you can always find a huge selection of my classic pieces there, but now she'll have a collection of my colorful glass and stone hand-hammered bronze hoops.
I will be away from the shop+studio from August 2-8th, so if you are hoping for a new piece of sword+fern, please stop by either one of those two nice shops and say hello, they both will have a good amount to choose from.
These new additions to the Underground Moongarden collection were inspired by music I've been listening to and in love with lately..Fleet Foxes and Austra. I got the chance to see both of them live last weekend. I wanted to make some pieces that feel like their songs; rampant and valiant and enthusiastic.

All the anger's lost
Freed from the beat and the pulse
Laughing like a fool
Playing for the heart and the soul
And the soul

Capture something red

Paste it to the edge of your bed
Someone will be there
Someone who will know what it says
What it says

1930's glass eye and triangles, turquoise, amethyst, aquamarine, jasper, copper, pyrite

recycled grey glass, volcanic lava,fire agate, jasper, howlite skull,pyrite

fossils,howlite skull, rusty hardware, recycled grey glass, copper, volcanic lava,jasper

teal recycled glass,copper,agate mother of pearl,fossil, pink jasper

If I know only one thing
It's that every thing that I see
Of the world outside is so inconceivable
Often I barely can speak
Yeah I'm tongue tied and dizzy
And I can't keep it to myself
What good is it to sing helplessness blues?
Why should I wait for anyone else?

-Fleet Foxes
