Do you know that feeling when you arrive somewhere and suddenly you feel light? Like the weight of the last week, or month or even year, is lifted just by arriving to a location? Could be your favorite park, a loved ones’ home, or a place that holds a special meaning to you. I’m not talking about the arriving to your vacation destination and sighing “I never want to leave” on the last day. I’m talking about the deep pull to this somewhere that you can feel in your bones and it calls out to you in your dreams.
I like think that this place is your soul’s home. And if you’re lucky, it might be right in your backyard.
My place is fresh coast shores of Lake Superior.
My first trip to the North Shore. I was amazed by Tettegouche State Park.
My lifelong obsession began with my parents taking my sister and I up to Ontonagon every summer for a beach day. We’d wake up early, fall back asleep in the car, and wake back up to a usually calm-water, bluebird day on the beach. Then we would spend all day picking rocks and playing in a small stream with natural clay that emptied into the big lake. We could hear our treasures rattling in the ice cream pails all the way home.
I followed this pull to college in Houghton and spent many days and nights with great friends on the shores, around campfires and in tents. And still, picking rocks all the while as I went.
A Keweenaw agate
And when I moved out to the desert after college, I still felt the pull. Thousands of miles away, and I could still feel it. Though I loved the red rocks and the tall saguaros of the south west, I followed that feeling back to the north.
Now, whenever I’m away, or get the itch to go to the edge of the water, I’m reminded of my soul’s home just by looking down at my Starry Night on Lake Superior Ring from BMJ. It keeps the quiet sound of the tide on the rocks, the smell of a crisp autumn evening bonfire on the shore and the feel of cool water touching my toes with me wherever I go.
A treasure my kid-self would be happy to see me wearing
Don’t know the feeling I am talking about? That means your place is still out there, waiting for you to find home. Listen to the call 😊
Until next time,
Water runs through her veins
You can see it in her eyes,
Hear it in her laugh,
And smell it on her skin.

The butterfly pendant is so pretty. It is very nicely made. It can be worn for dress up or for casual. Love it!!
Perfect match for the pendant of the same shape and design! They go great together and we’re made for each other!
Superior Gales Pendant
I love the pendant so much! The details are perfect.
I love the prints on all of these. I have bought many for Christmas gifts, nieces in H.S. and MIL. They like them all, very beautiful prints
Walking through the woods when it's "raining" autumn is one of my favorite things to do and this pendant captures that experience beautifully!! Thank you!!
This pendant is beautiful. It inspires so many wonderful memories of the loons on our lake. It is a true keepsake!
Love my pendant!
The Woodland Conifer pendant in silver is my very favorite necklace. It’s a perfect size, goes with anything I wear (I actually never take it off) and it reflects my love of the northwoods. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
I purchased this pendant as a gift for an NMU alumni as a reminder of their time at NMU, in Marquette near our beautiful Lake Superior! The stunning landscape on this pendant is sure to provide lifetime memories of treasured times in Marquette!
Thank you for your gifts and talents you create in your amazing pieces.
