Local Jewelry Designer in Hollywood Blockbuster!!

Wow, I am so thrilled to share this great news - one of my very favorite clients, Cari and Rory Streeter, are making a BIG splash in the papers lately for their beautiful, custom-made jewelry! It's all because actress Megan Fox, who plays Mikaela Banes in the upcoming movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, wears a unique tiny disc initial necklace designed by Jewelry by Cari. The necklace is a hand-sculpted sterling silver Teeny Tiny Disc hand-stamped with any initial. The disc is hand-finished with a satin sheen, accented with a smooth quartz briolette and hangs on their adjustable link chain with a lobster clasp. You can catch glimpses of the necklace in the beginning of this trailer on YouTube: click HERE

No doubt you saw the blurb in our local paper, the Hood River News, but now the state-wide Oregonian has picked up the story! Jewelry by Cari is now offering this exact same necklace at a very special price (usually $95!) for a limited time only; click HERE to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to own a piece of fabulous, custom-made-in-the-Gorge jewelry!

Wahclella Falls

Went hiking with Kate, one of my favorite people in the world, this morning - you know I love her 'cuz I got up before 8am to go! (me, not so much the early morning person...) She suggested the short but beautiful Wahclella Falls trail (Bonneville Dam exit off 84 for you local readers) and I realized I hadn't visited those particular falls in over ten years, so I was in...

Took my little point and shoot and tried to convey just how magical a morning it was - the trees and small creek conspired to keep us cool and the filtered sunlight caused the leaves and ferns to glow...

However, my FAVORITE shot from the hike was taken by Kate! When I first walked up to the waterfall, I reached out my arms to embrace the cool mist and I could hear Kate in back of me yelling, "Gimme your camera - I want to take that picture!" How could I not give in, despite my instinct to hide whenever someone points a camera at me?! (a common affliction amongst photographers, btw...)

So thank you, Kate, not only for a lovely start to my day, but my favorite photo of me in a Very Very Long Time!
