Synopsis

Discover the healing power of jewelry. Inspiritu Jewelry is a book full of inspiration and techniques for creating rich and romantic-looking jewelry with a new dimension – that of using adornment to enrich the spirit and offer a sense of wellbeing. This book guides you through 25 jewelry “prescriptions.” Entries from an old “Prescriptions” book, belonging to a healer by the name of Milagros tie all of these projects together. The year is 1924 and you are introduced to healing methods Milagros used to treat the afflictions and heartaches of those in her small town. In addition to each project guiding you through a variety of jewelry-making techniques, each piece suggests a particular benefit to the wearer from learning patience to gaining protection on a journey and from offering forgiveness to remembering a loved one. You are also encouraged along the way to create jewelry pieces of your own for whatever purpose your desire.

Her exhibit ‘Prayers for Peace’ was given a favorable review by the New York Times. Marie has been published in Somerset Studio, Belle Armoire, Haute Handbags, Altered Couture and she has also done styling work for Folio magazine.

From Seth Godins Blog…Art is what we call…

Art is what we call…

the thing an artist does.

It’s not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human.

Art is not in the eye of the beholder. It’s in the soul of the artist.

Isn’t that the truth-that is why art often heals…..
