My friend Marilyn is helping me bring to fruition an idea that has been stewing in the back of my mind for a few years now. She has an amazing studio high up on a hill in San Diego that has a view of the historic El Cortez building. I had a wonderful day hanging out with her and experimenting with new materials to find a way to achieve my ideas. She creates beautifully minimal and obsessive jewelry entitled Meander. Please visit her work here. Thank you Marilyn!
