I carry your heart

July 15, 2016 - 4:54pm -- sue

There is that special someone that is always in your heart, no matter where you are in the world or what you are doing. Whether it is your child, your parent that has passed, the angel that watches over you or 'the one' you love, you carry this person with you all the time.

To open and close, you tuck the little heart inside the larger heart.

Finding joy in 2016

December 22, 2015 - 8:53pm -- sue

I’m thinking about you today and hoping that 2016 will be good to you in your corner of the world.

This is the time to get cozy, light a candle, sleep in and to indulge in chocolate. (And in my case, to ski the slopes with my family and soak in the hot tub afterwards with a glass of champagne.)

It is not easy to choose the direction, every day, that you want your life to take. It is not easy to find space for yourself and to find the moments of quiet in between the mayhem - the time to just breathe, be present and enjoy.

"Your inner knowing is your only true compass." - Joy Page

My journey has brought me to a place where the daily lessons sometimes overwhelm me. Yet, I am learning that these lessons do not go away. I cannot hide from them.

They not only find me, they burrow in and do not let up.

The task at hand then is to breathe and be still; to let the mind settle and the body relax.

Send some love

I see your tedious chores and negotiations. I hear your old stories of paths that led the wrong way.

And now, new-found wisdom.

I see you loosening the grip on envy, what you lost, the misunderstandings, the way things should have been.
I see you choosing, building, stepping forward to claim your path.

I see the tension loosening in your shoulders. I see your load slowly getting a little lighter. I see you stepping forward onto more solid ground.

And you do it with such grace. Such beauty.

You are not alone.

One act of kindness

October 31, 2015 - 1:04pm -- sue

It was one of those stressful days at work where jewelry orders were delayed, the construction work over my home studio sounded like they were coming through the ceiling (again), I had worked too many consecutive days (ok, weeks) without a day off and I may have sent an email to an already unhappy client with SO SORRY FOR YOUR INCONTINENCE (thank you spell

By 1 pm, my co-worker could see an intervention was needed before I clawed through the walls back to sanity. She suggested I take a break. I was thinking I wanted to sit down and a nice glass of wine after work.

On Trend: Victorian aesthetic

October 26, 2015 - 4:43pm -- sue

This season, the Neo-Victorian trend is showcased in the collections of fashion’s most renowned couture houses.

From Valentino to Givenchy, the classics of the Victorian aesthetic are everywhere. Think lace, ruffled blouses, high-necked collars, and lots of black — were juxtaposed with modern sensibilities such as high boots, peek-a-boo slips and jackets and spectacular jewels, naturally.

Limited Edition

October 14, 2015 - 8:27am -- sue

Last year, we purchased a beautiful Richard Johnson photograph of a Canadian red ice hut for our home. The artist explained that each photo was a limited edition, for example: 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 etc.

It was a big selling point for me, knowing I would not see my painting everywhere. All our original jewelry designs also have limited editions; although, until now, it has never occurred to me to share this fact with you. I assumed this made Suetables feel too small.

Big is better, no?

Well, I have a secret for you: all our original designs have small runs.

A broken heart

August 23, 2015 - 6:44pm -- sue

A broken heart

It's a cloudy, heavy, damp Maine day.

I took an afternoon walk to watch my son and friends surf the waves at the beach. Walking home in flip flops, I stopped and sat on the sea wall. I looked out at the cloudy sky and grey ocean. I listened to the rocks tumble back and forth in unison as the waves lulled them in and out with the rocking surf. It is such a beautiful sound.

My late father is not here to enjoy this, I thought to myself. And he hasn't been here for over 20 years. I picked up a rock. I picked up four more.

They were all hearts.
