Fragility

Fragility is OK
Fragility — Hold Kindly

Fragility 

A smaller driftwood collage that reminds us to be kind to our sensitive places inside. This can only be sold in Costa Rica because it is too fragile to ship.

Seeds:

Sea grape, Sea Heart, Sandbox Tree seed, Guanacaste Tree seed, Mucuna Holtonii, Oleander Tree seeds, and a lovely seed full of holes, type unknown (hanging with a Mexican Bird of Paradise Tree pod).

Invitation: Allow yourself and others to be sensitive, vulnerable, and real. Connect authentically. Hold yourself kindly.

Surf and Turf

“Surf and Turf.” 

The small driftwood pieces on this are exquisite. The composition is gorgeous. It is my favorite of all, next to “Yin Yang.”

Seeds include: Sea Heart, Ox Eye,  gorgeous and rare black  “Oxys” (Oxyrhynchus trinervias), Guanacaste Tree seed, a lovely Sea Purse (Dioclea reflexa), Tears of St. Peter seeds, tree pods, and one mountain snail from Punta Uva, Costa Rica.

The beautiful large black thorns are from the A. cornigera Acacia tree.

The white spiral shell I found up in the mountains of Punta Uva, Talamanca, Limon, Costa Rica. I love it!

Invitation: Appreciate the details. Go with the flow.
