"If you are one who believes you are what you feel, then you have a better understanding of who I am. I am one who feels deeply and believes feelings are the most important parts of life...."
"Who am I? Well, some people think you are what you do... so for them, I am an artisan. I design and create works of art, so therefore I am an artist. However, I am not one who believes that it is necessary to create works of art in order to be an artist. Art, like beauty, is 'in the art of the beholder.' It takes an artist's eye in order for a work of art to come into being, a collaboration between the 'seer' and the 'seen.' Therefore the art of observation is indeed a legitimate form of art, one that can be developed but it is generally a gift from birth, either you have it or you don't. But perhaps the 'artist' is in all of us to a greater or lesser degree.
"I was born and raised in Long Island and moved to California when I was 21, where I worked for 15 years on TV shows and movies as an electrician, special effects technician, carpenter, specialty prop and model maker. In 1989 I began a five year apprenticeship in the art of lapidary, and traveled around Asia looking for ethnographic art. It didn't take long to find out that the real antiquities of this part of the world had become quite scarce so I began making jewelry full time in India, Thailand, Nepal, Sri Lanka and in Java and Bali as well. I got tired of all the packing and unpacking so I decided to pick one place to work that had the most to offer and I picked Bali. I traveled back and forth from Bali to Los Angeles once or twice a year before settling here in the year 2000.
"I think the artist sees art everywhere, especially where it isn't labeled as such. I love technology and science, in the service of the arts or as they exist separate from those who don't see the artistry hidden within them. I love movies and music, photography, computers and sports. The arts are everywhere.
"Some say you are what you believe, or what you think. For them I am more elusive for I love to imagine and to go deeply into thought, but I have no constraints as to what to believe or entertain as possibility. To those who say we are what we think, I have to disagree and state emphatically that the opposite is true, that we are not what we think we are at all. So yes, I enjoy meditation, setting aside a quiet time to still my mind and for an uncounted period of time enter the stillness. And there is a passive form of meditation I practice throughout the day in which I remind myself that whatever I identify with is not who I am – that I am connected to everyone and everything.
"If you are one who believes you are what you feel, then you have a better understanding of who I am. I am one who feels deeply and believes feelings are the most important parts of life, connecting us to everyone and everything honestly and without the illusions the mind tends to create. If art is good, it communicates a feeling.
"Analyzing and talking about art is fine but pointless compared to the feeling it conveys. It's great to have a good mind to use for whatever purposes you see fit, but just as you need to breathe you need the ability to quiet it and just allow yourself to feel.
"So I guess that's who I am, just a combination of activities, thoughts and feelings like all of us. Here's a thought: Maybe Art is not superficial at all, or beauty skin deep. Maybe it is a direct experience of the Divine within us. That has to be true... until it isn't."
Received the Budah Om!! Great art work, really like it. Here in Puerto Rico everyone askes me about it, I have given the web site to many of my surf friends so they can check out your products!! Thank you again!!
Scott, your work is amazing. I received my necklace ""Bamboo Muse."" The encircled bamboo and leaf is so wonderfully detailed. The amethyst is beautifully placed above the circle. I hadn't noticed the details on the chain in the picture. I love the type of chain and the floral details part way up. The lovely clasp is also floral. I am looking forward to purchasing the earring. Thank you!
My Bamboo Muse Amethyst floral earrings arrived. They were purchased to match the Bamboo Muse necklace that I had previously ordered. They are a beautiful complement to the necklace. i really appreciate that you create jewelry sets! Thank you for your exquisite work.

FINDING YOUR SIZE
Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.
BUST / CHEST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.
