SARU (monkey in Japanese) + STAR (my grandma Stella)= SARUSTAR, a personal amalgamation of what my business/ life/ the act of making things is to me. It is the playful and sometimes haphazard way things come together to make life beautiful.
Handmade jewelry showcasing the unsung gems of the world.
Argh. Today, I felt like smashing things. Thank goodness my mom is here so I could escape to my dungeon and start hammering. I had planned to make some kind of layered hammered metal ring type of thing, but after playing around with some scraps, ended up with this sterling silver & pyrite pendant. I actually think it's quite nice! I came back upstairs feeling so much more at peace. Metal is so wonderfully cathartic sometimes.
