My favorite jewelry artist, Jeanine Payer, came for a visit last week. Not my typical appointment. I have been selling her jewelry for almost 12 years now and her jewelry line remains my favorite. She is a true artist and I admire her creativity and thought behind each piece. There is truly always a story to tell of how, why and when she designed each piece in her collection. I love especially hearing about where her inspiration for each new collection comes from. The poetry aspect of her jewelry always intrigues me. I love to see the instant connection when a customer is struck by the words on a particular piece. This is after all what this line is all about. I have quite the collection myself from over the years and can tell you why I chose each one at a different time in my life. We change as individuals so of course poetry is going to affect us differently at each stage in our lives. I hope to continue to sell her jewelry for another 12 years and I look forward to adding to my personal collection.
I think this may be in my personal collection!
“We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole that makes the wagon move. We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we desire. We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable. We work with being, but non-being is what we use.”
Thank you Jeanine,
