Hope, Beth Hemmila: fine silver
Last year a lovely Etsy friend asked me to make an acorn charm. This tiny seed was languishing in my drawing stack as I watched the Fall season quickly leave me in the dust. Nevertheless, as I launch my acorn charm in the merry month of January, I realize that now couldn't be a more perfect time. There is a delirious feeling of hope in the air, and as the presidential inauguration fast approaches, I can't help but think that at one time true statesmanship was a tiny acorn that is now ready to grow into a mighty oak.
