Talisman: Brooke Stone
Brooke Stone is one of my favorite jewelers. She lives in the Willamette Valley in Oregon where she creates stunning sculptures of animals and other natural objects in precious metals. I commissioned this piece from her last year, and I wear it almost every day. It is a Raven with carnelian rowan berries and bronze leaves, silver twigs, silver and bronze claws, and a carved bone moon.
I recently visited Brooke at her home and studio. She is an enchanted woman who surrounds herself with nature, both indoors and out. Her husband Jim Clement is a wonderful fellow who makes beautiful chains. Brooke is going to be a vendor at Faerieworlds this year, and we're very excited to welcome her to the family.
