Introducing Mary Jane Dodd {jewelry}

I love when artists have a story to tell through their creations. Sometimes the viewer needs to look beyond what lies in front of them to see the deepened meaning... the feelings that are being shared. The talented jewelry designer, Mary Jane Dodd had this to say about her work, "I am inspired by nature, issues, feelings & words… I am entranced by myth and legend… things that have connected humans over time… my creations are rarely purely aesthetic in execution… there is something behind them… as I learn about and explore new techniques and media, my involvement grows… " What a wonderful connection between the beautiful handmade jewelry and the world around us!

I love, love, love Mary Jane! I follow her blog and had to rush right over when she mentioned you. I am so deeply inspired by what you told her about your reasons to go into this endeavor. I am at a fork in the road and I am so comforted to know that there is an entire creative community yearning for connectedness. The idea for this magazine is brilliant. I am ordering RIGHT NOW! (And I will be following your blog too!)
Enjoy the day, Jodi!
