the eye, the edge.

jones beach. february 2012.

"If I longed for destruction it was merely that this eye might be extinguished. I longed for an earthquake, for some cataclysm of nature which would plunge the lighthouse into the sea. I wanted a metamorphosis, a change to fish, to leviathan, to destroyer. I wanted the earth to open up, to swallow everything in one engulfing yawn. I wanted to see the city buried fathoms deep in the bosom of the sea. I wanted to sit in a cave and read by candlelight. I wanted that eye extinguished so that I might have a chance to know my own body, my own desires. I wanted to be alone for a thousand years in order to reflect on what I had seen and heard—and in order to forget."

— Henry Miller, The Tropic Of Capricorn

just wanted to say I love your jewelry, work, blog, etc. I'm a singer in a band called black bird white sky and think there are similarities in taste. If you feel like it, go here and download the 5 song EP for free, and check out the video for I Saw Your Soul also...
Hope to buy a piece from you soon, thanks for making beautiful art...
Best regards,
Ronnie Shingelo
