That feeling when a random youtube video about psychic abilities connects a Buddhist teaching to your current series of work
Mid-video over coffee, I debated whether or not I should share this one here. Russell Targ has some fascinating stories but how relevant it is to my art? Plus it’s long. How closely should I keep blog things focused?
Honestly, I’d rather be painting but there are service people in my workspace. Staying productive, I’m working on some projects that require a different type of attention and can be started and stopped more easily.
A couple weeks ago, water came out of the light fixtures and vents in the ceiling. The air conditioning drain backed up — what a mess. Since then, workers have been here every day ripping carpet, cutting out walls, and all sorts of other demolition and construction. Oh, and don’t forget the industrial fans, dehumidifiers, air scrubbers… yeah, apparently they’re a thing. Those loud little beasts are running everywhere around the clock. They take white noise to a whole new level.
Ok, enough about that, let’s talk about some jewelry I made and just got listed in my etsy shop, www.luckystardreams.com 🙂
Inspired by the full moon, complete with shore vibes. These earrings were born from a combination of nostalgia and the night sky at the Jersey shore in the summertime.

I wear them all the time and the number of compliments I get wearing them is wild.
Happy astrological new year! It’s the first day of spring. Too bad the weather here in New Jersey didn’t get the memo.
I made a new shirt, “Intuition is my Superpower.” It’s in my Lucky Star Dreams Etsy shop and it’s not just a shirt, its the beginning of my campaign to bring awareness and social validity to intuition. I feel like we miss a lot of life’s little subtleties in the noise of our culture. We tend not to slow down and listen to that energy… and when we do hear it, it blends with the media and entertainment we’re completely immersed in. The whispers are so easily drowned out by noise and the pace in which we move. Continue reading “Intuition is my superpower”
These constellation necklaces are sparkly, light, modern minimalist meets feminine. I was inspired by the sparkling night sky, natural light, and minimalism. I designed and handmade these necklaces to have light, natural, and subtle variation from my original crystal constellation necklace design.
I’ve had many customers get them as birthday gifts as well as memorial jewelry.
