NOTES ON ALCHEMICAL PSYCHOLOGY
Forty Days, Forty Nights – Goddess Descends
An astrological essay on Venus turning retrograde, in the sign of Capricorn, while in a tango with Pluto, the God of the Dead.
Hidden In Plain Sight
On the lore of the traditional handcrafted Russian Doll, of stories nested within stories, astrological rising signs, and all things hidden in plain sight.
On approaching our photo archives as oracle guides, journeying through a labyrinth of our own camera obscura.
The Philosophy Of Light
My first alchemical jewellery collection, an exploration of the character of our crystal kin and their relationship with the nature of light. It consists of sixteen pieces, and is my humble offering to the Angelic Realms.
Nature Is An Engine
My second alchemical jewellery collection celebrating the sensual pleasures of life on Earth, in all their phenomenological simplicity and ontological magnificence. It consists of eight pieces. Dedicated to Motherhood.
