Do you ever feel the urge to pull out your bow and arrow after a hard day at the office?
I've been meandering over the last month with my jewelry design. Partly because I've been trying to refine my vision for HINT. What is this wonderful, churning beast of creativity, munching through glittery silver and gems?
During last month's incubation, I discovered that hidden beneath each of my pieces of jewelry is a story that I desperately want to paint into meaning through words. More importantly, the story I want to tell is about ancient, universal archetypes that when activated hit a groove that says "I'm home!"
So I've been playing with my favorite sistahs of the ancient world: Artemis, Athena, Aphrodite, Hera, Hestia, Demeter and Persephone. I've been busy inviting them over for languishing lunches and late night brainstorming sessions where we fill up on tasty Merlot and smooth, dark chocolate. Here's my first stab at their alter egos -- their aka's for HINT's new collection. Can you match the Greek goddess to my new persona? Let me know if any of these hit the spot!

BOHEMIAN: A free-spirited adventurer
BON VIVANT: An ardent devotee of sensual pleasure
