  • October Heat Wave
  • October started off a little bit cooler but the extreme heat came back soon and continued burning up the place until now. Finally
    this morning, I can feel the nice breeze coming through the window. My place is in the shade during this season so maybe it's
    still really hot outside. I can't tell.Can you see in the pictures? The top 3 images were taken in ok temperature, but the l

  • 14kgf Colorful Mixed Gemstone Earrings & Bracelets
  • I worked on these without overthinking.It's been a while since I made this kind of gold gemstone jewelry.Gold definitely has
    more feminine, softer feel than silver.I myself am a silver fan but creation should be more flexible.I had a moment of reassurance
    after completing these and told myself to go back to where I simply enjoy creating without being so picky...!あまりあれこ

  • End of the Peaceful Weekend
  • Peaceful sunny afternoon.This garden didn't seem to be ready for the new season yet.Trees and flowers had the same appearance
    as the mid summer and the perfect weather allowed us to spend relaxing moments while listening to tropical sounding birds' c
    hirping.Later at night, a breaking news on the Las Vegas massacre came in and put an end to the calming weekend. 穏やかなお

    about the size but we guessed it right. Relieved when I heard from her it worked out prefect.文字(言葉)を刻印するタ

  • Metalwork Silver Jewelry
  • While natural gemstones are my everlasting inspiration, I'm also obsessed with rich textures of sterling silver. Once hammere
    d, oxidized, sanded, polished in a rotary tool, the details on the metal never disappear. More often you wear them better and shin
    ier they get. I still have many designs in my sketch book that are waiting to turn live. Hope I can achieve all of them. These one

  • Creations with Colorful Stones & Pearls
  • I spent the past week creating these dainty style multi stone & pearl jewelry.Designs are simple but sometimes deciding on color c
    ombination could take longer than expected. I don't seem to get any quicker on it as it just reflects the mood of the day and
    never turns out identical to each other.These tahitian pearls are amazing. Each drop has a different shape and size that also dis

  • Beach Day
  • Late summer beach.I go down the shore and just stand on the sand to watch the waves for a while.The tourists (probably dad & son)
    walked in front of me & said "it's so cold!" with a shocked look on their face after dipping their feet in the wate
    r. I told them that water is always cold like this over here. That was exactly the same reaction when I first came to California!T

  • Citrus Grove
  • Stumbled upon this citrus grove while cruising around the unfamiliar part of the town. Besides the dream like grove on the hill, s
    cenes of growing cactus & maple trees with leaves already turning yellow were also a bit of nice surprises.This was a day in early
    August and the sun was glittering, yet I sensed the arrival of autumn in the cool breeze up on the hill.I imagine these citrus tr
