Some earrings I've made for the Contemporary Australian Silver & Metalwork Exhibition at Buda Historical House & Garden in Castlemaine, Victoria. The exhibition will be in June sometime...
Hope is the Thing with Feathers
"Hope" is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without words
And never stops, at all
And sweetest, in the Gale, is heard
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm
I've heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest Sea
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb, of me.
- Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
