Recently, I have become more serious about my art, specifically my jewelry. So this blog will chronicle my foray into the world of creativity. Some will be posts about jewelry, some about trying new soldering techniques and some will be about my failures.

Dura Mater is one tough mother
Dura Mater started out as a joke between several medically minded pregnant women. The Latin translation literally means "tough mother" but dura mater is also a medical term for the outer layer protecting the brain and the spinal cord. My first time screen printing involved another pregnant doctor and me quickly inking the screens while using our feet to rock my weeks old daughter in her carrier so that we could get the process done. We did many onesies and other shirts for our families and friends. But it started a creative process that has ebbed and flowed over the last several years.
