Na Pali Moon I

Artist Statement:
I have long been fascinated by the view of distant hills as they disappear into the mist. I
love how they become less and less distinct and fade in color the farther away they are.
As one looks along the coast the rippling texture of the ridges of headlands has always
inspired visions of jewelry capturing that movement and that landscape.

In Na Pali Moon I have combined this theme with another favorite–that of moonlight
on water. There are many beautiful coastlines but the distinctive northwest coast of the
Island of Kauai is one of the most exciting to me.
