Some beautiful magical thinking I discovered over on @goldirocks.co this morning. Something about this really spoke to me, so I wanted to share it with you all. Things can look so different when you alter your perspective. And after some quick research I discovered that the author, Judyth Hill, lives near one of my favorite places on earth, and where I took my first silversmithing class, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. • • Wage Peace Wage peace with your breath. Breathe in firemen and rubble, breathe out whole buildings and flocks of red wing blackbirds. Breathe in terrorists and breathe out sleeping children and freshly mown fields. Breathe in confusion and breathe out maple trees. Breathe in the fallen and breathe out lifelong friendships intact. Wage peace with your listening: hearing sirens, pray loud. Remember your tools: flower seeds, clothes pins, clean rivers. Make soup. Play music, learn the word for thank you in three languages. Learn to knit, and make a hat. Think of chaos as dancing raspberries, imagine grief as the outbreath of beauty or the gesture of fish. Swim for the other side. Wage peace. Never has the world seemed so fresh and precious: Have a cup of tea and rejoice. Act as if armistice has already arrived. Celebrate today -Judyth Hill • • Wren Bracelet in gold fill with leaf green cotton cord, one of the new colors that will be available soon for spring and summer. Mountain by @smallwildshop

Back in the studio and back to work, but fighting off a head cold and the urge to nap. Tea. Maybe tea is the answer. #somedaysarelikethat #lifeofanartist |||| this pic: October Necklace in sterling and 14k gold fill

Savoring the last quiet afternoon of vacation before getting back into the studio tomorrow morning. I love my work, but sometimes shifting gears is so hard! Anyone have any good advice on how to transition smoothly back into productivity? I'm already feeling overwhelmed. • • This pic: a few favorite textured gold stacking rings: The Cleo (top) the Orbit Band (bottom left) and the Simple Twist Band (bottom right) all in 14k yellow.

Had a delicious leisurely lunch today with @shopclementine at @thegleanery in Purney, VT. Man do I love a leisurely lunch with a friend. A true luxury in a life full of hectic lunches with toddlers. #jewelerswholunch #lifeofanartist #thehappynow #theartofslowliving

The final tallies of the Spread the Love Bracelet orders are finished, and the donations of $500 each to the @aclu_nationwide @emilys_list and The Union of Concerned Scientists have been sent. ‼️ The response to this has been so amazing, and writing those checks felt so good, I would like to keep this rolling in some way, maybe with a new piece and a new charity? What charities are near and dear to your hearts? I'd love some suggestions. And thanks again to everyone who bought a Spread the Love Bracelet. You guys are amazing!

Did you know all Rebecca Haas Jewelry pieces are made from recycled and ethically sourced materials? And that each piece is made to order from start to finish right here in my Vermont studio? It's not something that I always talk about, but they are two of the things that I am most proud of about my business. 💪🔨🇺🇸✔️ • Shown here|Bent Perch Cuff in 14k gold fill.
