Water Lilies
June 2nd, 2013Musings, New PieceMegan 0 Comments

As a child, almost all of my family’s vacations were spent on tropical islands (not the greatest climate for a blue eyed, redhead I might add). To this day there is a certain kind of heat-backed, spicy floral scent that means “home” and “safe” to me. I have a vivid image from when I was […]

Lilies, Lilies, Everywhere

The bee dream I wrote about in my last post was part of a series of dreams I had last year where plants, animals and insects were “talking’ to me. These dreams have really influenced all my carving this year, and I realized that I never spoke about the lily dream. I was in garden […]

Bee Dreams

I don’t know when I realized how much I love carving insects, but realize it, I did. A few months ago I asked the wonderful people on my facebook page, and on twitter, what insect they would like to see me carve next. There were so many great ideas, but the one that came up […]

Ode to the Marchesa

As a teenager I was given a book about the great photographer Adolph de Meyer. I just fell in love with the elegance and gauzy-otherworldly quality of his work; I don’t think I’ve ever seen a De Meyer picture I didn’t like. In that particular book was a wealth of beautiful images, but one stood […]

A Valentines Day Sale!
February 14th, 2011New PieceMegan 0 Comments

As many of you know, I named my jewelry after my Grandmother Lura Mozelle Bauguess Richardson. I always think of her on Valentines Day. During my teenage years she would invariably ask me, “Did you receive any valentines from a special friend today?”. Now, in my Grandmother’s lexicon “Special Friend” could mean anything from a […]

I started thinking about the idea of a Utopia earlier this year, and all the myths of Arcadia started coming to mind: an earthly paradise of peace, harmony and attunement to nature. My newest collection is about striving for that ideal. The primary motifs are flowers and butterflies representing Nature, along with the lyre, representing […]

Butterfly and the Wisdom of a Shaman
October 4th, 2010New PieceMegan 1 Comments

This summer was one of the strangest of my life; there’s really no other way to describe it. It started out normally enough, but through a series of surprises, twists, turns and a few medical tests thrown in for good measure, I found myself in the office of a Shaman. Before I could even tell […]

An extraordinary teacher, named Raven Keyes, came into my life last summer. Raven is a Reiki Master Teacher, Lightworker and all around Healer. After my first Reiki session with her, I was so moved by what I experienced that I decided to take the training to become a practitioner myself. Reiki has brought so many […]

When I was 14 I read a book called A Book of Angels by Sophie Burnham. For those who haven’t read it, it’s an overview of the history of angels through mythology, folklore and personal accounts. It had a major effect on me at the time and how I viewed the world. I remember staring […]

My Ongoing Obsession
May 18th, 2009New PieceMegan 0 Comments

There are two types of jewelry that are dearest to my heart: eye-catching, dramatic pieces and deeply personal, well loved ones. I’ve been having an ongoing desire to create rings that fall into both of these categories– marrying the extrovert with the introvert, if you will. I recently created a pear-shaped ring that has become […]
