Awakening the Senses

No doubt, Spring has arrived. Ready or not.  Slightly resistant of the notion, personally, since as I’ve gotten more mature I embrace fall and winter. But it’s the time to embrace and not hold back. Make way for what wants to enter. Clear the space. Spring is here!  And here we have Wisteria, Italian style.  The color is simply divine. The species is rather invasive. I wanted to begin my post with nature, as always, and thought this was a great way to sum up Spring’s arrival via a shot I took in Italy. Welcome to this journey.

Below we see the unusual cypress trees indicative of the Italian countryside. I love them! When I shoot photos, I just go with my instincts and what captures my eye.

Easter has come and gone, but I spent my time in bed with a flu that I never saw coming. The trip to Italy this month I pretended to be my end-all, be-all. The trip with answers. My salvation.  Enlightenment. Or so I thought. I am on the up from being so far down, hallucinations during the night and all in a numb yet feverish state for more than three nights in a row. In retrospect, I think it was a mind altering drug. Not. I now realize my body shut down. Had no choice but to embrace hiding from the 80+degree days Easter Sunday and Marathon Monday. Simply hiding. Tossing and turning within my deep charcoal linen sheets enveloping me in within this tumultuous turmoil of fever. Thank God for grapefruit juice and blinds. This too, shall pass. I digress.

The Church. It’s Palm Sunday. I am in Florence. For the second trip from our home base of Montecatini- Tuscany. The highlight of my trip to Italy, in all honesty was the serendipitous discovery through the scent. Incense smoke from the cobblestone back streets in Florence, not far from the Santa Maria Train Station, leading my sister and I towards this elegant antique structure. The the overpowering fluid scent moving with intoxicating lure through the air – beckoning a surprise discovery. Here comes the mystery…..Embarking on this beauty and spirituality in this environment.

Palm Sunday 2017 Florence. Love. Heart opening.  The scent of Frankincense filled the Church’s entirety. Oh Bless.

We took part in Palm Sunday Mass, in Latin, like eras gone by in the US. The experience and the authenticity of  church, the nuns, looking like a painting, the architecture. I  was transported to another century. The history was soul grounding. Aren’t the ladies gorgeous?  Their graceful voices filled with melody envelop the entire church. The scene below I captured with my phone  during mass. A no no. But look at them! This scene looks like a painting. Their cloaks so majestic! This Latin mass set the tone of the day trip to Florence for me.

As we left this beautiful scene behind us, we ventured out by foot into the tourist driven scenes around the city of Florence. I placed my eyes and camera to work, seeking new discoveries and nuances along the beaten path. No stone left unturned. Taking nothing for granted. The history and age depicted below from a simple shot of these weathered shutter doors spoke to me of their years of wear and oh, what a beautiful patina tones.

OH the architecture with effortless beauty and stature. I recognized various tones of Ochre sprinkled throughout the country as its signature color. The rustic buildings and terrain lend themselves to these earthy tones.

I never tired of seeing these colors everywhere. The building below is a bit more elaborate than those above, regardless the natural age and beauty took breath away.

Food, Glorious Food

I wish I had a bevy of photos portraying the amazing food we had, but much to my dismay, the food was not that at all. It seems to me that there are more Italian restaurants with better ambiance here in the United States. And you can be sure you will not have to listen to the likes of Joe Cocker or Elton John while dining, as we did there in these very brightly lit rooms. WHAT THE HELL? I say. And no, we were not in tourist areas. We found little places family run, speaking next to no English. No candlelight. Just artificial flowers and ghastly lighting! Crazy!

The pasta was light, certainly delicious, but what’s with the lack of vegetables on every single menu? This  dish below was the best one on the entire trip. Succulent. Fresh wide pasta tubes crawling with seafood. Simply delicious! Not to mention the Tuscan wine we had to accompany our meal. Just a delight!  So wrapping up my trip, I will say that I missed having vegetable options, and am perplexed as to the void of them. Upon my return home, I hightailed it to Russo’s market in Watertown. I was immediately elevated back to a level of sophistication, in-depth produce offerings and fresh pastas unlike I’d ever seen. Alas it IS Spring.

I am totally perplexed as to the absence of all vegetables in Italy. Not in the street, on the menus, no where in sight! Perhaps it was the region we visited. I am not certain, but I do know this – here, they prominently thrive and exist.  I am very grateful and blessed to be a part of this earth here in New England. You serve us well! Spring represents many things, but in the realm of food, as the soil becomes richer and richer in nutrients, the spring bounty awakens. Artichokes and asparagus are the most obvious foods that represent Spring to me. Stuffing artichokes is a ritual I grew up with. It was our holiday food. I celebrate many different holidays with this beautiful vegetable. Slightly complex, but worth every moment. The Romans and Greeks advocated the medicinal and health benefiting  qualities of this thistle.  The high fiber content not to missed either.  The antioxidants and vitamins also offer vitamin C, vitamin K, rich in the B complex not to mention high in potassium. They need some time to prepare, but worth the effort. I love to sautée them after they have been cut in quarters and trimmed, with shallots, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. They are delicious one leaf at a time. The stems are especially hearty and fibrous.

Mushrooms on the other hand are plentiful at Russo’s market. They have so many varieties, and in all honesty- slightly scary to me since I am unfamiliar with many of them. The concept of foraging mushrooms turns me on, but that is not my calling. I’ll leave that to the pros. Radicchio, baby lettuce and fresh asparagus below in major abundance. The bitter deep red leaves of radicchio just taste so good raw, or grilled. Have you ever tried to grill them? They take on a very nutty flavor. Drizzle a little olive oil, salt, pepper and just a dash of balsamic before they hit the heat. I’ll show you a salad I conjured up in celebration of my return from Italy below, using escarole, radicchio, clementine slices and black Moroccan olives.

This salad was so refreshing, especially after the absence of raw vegetables. The colors, textures and  the taste was spot on, balanced and divine. Oh did I mention shaved fennel? I’ve posted the dressing recipe in the past, I believe. Please for pardon the repeat. 4 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 2tsp dijon country style mustard, 2 minced cloves garlic, 2/3 cup olive oil drizzled into the mix. Add a small amount of cracked pepper. Voila. Done.

Marilyn Sang ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’

There you have it! Spring has sprung. April. The month of Diamonds. The birthstone for April. Clarity. Purity. Diamonds glistening in the sun, catching the light with grace. The healing properties of this magnificent stone are abundant. Diamonds truly are the symbol of purity. Their white light can help you bring your life into a cohesive whole. They bond relationships bringing love and clarity into a partnership. This stone has been the symbol of wealth for centuries. It is a stone of manifestation, attracting abundance. Diamonds are also well known to impart fearlessness, invincibility and fortitude. Diamonds clear emotional and mental pain, reducing fear and bring about new beginnings. This is a highly creative stone stimulating imagination and inventiveness. Happy Birthday you April babies!  One of my new pieces, AMODINI,  shown below looks like a relic from the Victorian era.  The multi strands of hand cut amethyst stones are wire wrapped making the connection. I’ve attached a locket as the pendant, swinging from a diamond bale which is held by all 5 strands. A halo of diamonds surround the enclosed locket. The circle measures 1.25″ and the necklace is 17″ in length.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! They simply make you feel good and rich when wearing them. Anywhere on the body!  For some reason, I’m favoring the circular shape, so here are a pair of diamond disc earrings, PRAMA, suspended on 18k gold earwires. These babies are 15mm and ready to order. I have 11mm in stock. Aren’t these dangle and drop earrings gorgeous?

And let me introduce to you a brand new piece featuring a circular Sunburst with a dangling tourmaline in the center. The piece is suspended from black onyx, spinel, lava and olive wood. The only color visible here is the subtle blue tourmaline. It was shot in early morning light against my zinc desk. Soon enough the weather will break and allow me to shoot outdoors once again.

This Diamond Sunburst makes me think about the sun growing higher in the sky, as the season sets in. Summer will be here before we know it. It’s time to embrace the warmth and all of the newly sprouted plants. Our souls are also sprouting. Remember that. We are living creatures with awakening senses. Time to celebrate our renewal!

I hope you enjoyed this blog journey.

Yours in joy,

Dava

 

Smile Inducing Spring

As the month of March quietly passes through, we experience cooler temperatures again, powerful winds, and even an unexpected snow storm! We’ve endured four seasons within this one month. Life is not boring in this climate. As the weather acts up and dances through the month, signs of the awakening from the dormancy of Winter begin to poke through the ground. Plants eager to sprout, baby animals coming out of hibernation, and birds of all kinds, including the Robin, which I have seen have returned to their New England roost. We welcome longer and brighter days with open arms.

The month of March is the link between winter and spring. We think about fluffy little chicks, delicate pale colored tulips and how about after dinner mints! We begin shopping for lighter tones, in contrast to the Fall and Winter months when we gravitate towards deeper saturated ones, as well as jewel tones. These darker colors seem to provide a blanket of protection on our bodies. Spring, on the other hand, presents all sorts of colors that resemble the spring awakening of Earth. The newly sprouted fresh greens, baby birds hatching out from their shells. A Pastel palette begins to shed soft tones as we welcome the arrival of Spring.  Pale mint, pinks, yellows and greens are all examples of these tones.  The palette is soft, feminine and pleasant to the eye, opening our hearts for the new season embarking upon with the promise of warmer days ahead.

Color is light, and light is energy.  Color can stimulate, and excite us. It can also have a tranquil, calming peaceful effect.  The softer hues of pastels bring forth freshness and emerging energy from earth. These colors combined with neutrals create a feeling of sophistication and earthiness. You can’t help but feel happy. This is the time of the year for rebirth, renewal and rejuvenation.  There is also something very child inducing to these beautiful tones. Pick up a piece of chalk, and feel the sensation in your fingers. The results of playing with pastels either on textured paper or even a random sidewalk is freeing.  In allowing your fingers to move effortless, you are tapping  into your inner child. The sensations provoked are worth the experiment!

PASTELS

Updating your wardrobe once Spring hints can be a daunting task. Never mind the cost of replacing your fall-winter attire for lighter fabrics, there is this sudden urge to don lighter tones as well. All is not lost. Don’t fret! Introducing shots of pastels into your palette is easy. It can be done via scarves, clothing and even jewelry. Developing a collection within your wardrobe can create a fascinating and updated look. Majestic Filatures is a great label that offers just that. As the brand Ambassador in shop at Bloomingdale’s, I thought a descriptive was in order.  The Majestic  linens and lighter weight fabrics are offered in a bevy of tones that can easily be incorporated into your existing wardrobe for day and night. I can show you how. I am in Bloomingdale’s 4 days a week. My contact information is always available to you. The new Spring collection is scheduled to arrive this coming week. Take a peek below. You can see some neutrals, gentle brush stroke stripes and pops of color. This is a perfect example of how to incorporate these softer tones into your wardrobe now.  I suggest that you consciously begin to allow the ever so popular and over worn “color” black to fade from your daily wardrobe. Yes it is easy, but it’s not only boring if not worn with textures to create interest. Black also absorbs all sorts of energies you come in contact with. The feeling may be subtle or you may hardly notice, but hark… it’s there and can be draining from your own entire energy source. Hence, wearing pastels with other tones can begin to alter your seasonal wardrobe.  If you’re still uncertain how, I invite you to come into Bloomingdales, and I can help. Alternatively, we can set up a one-on-one private session. It is liberating and a very sensible investment. Working with your existing wardrobe first is a great place to start! No time like NOW.

HEALING GEMSTONES

If you wish to experience the energy of pastels, another option is through gemstones. I’ve just completed a unique one of a kind Talisman necklace using a fairly large Rose Quartz druzy stone, surrounded by a halo of diamonds, all of which are suspended from a hefty rustic looking sterling silver cable link chain.

An instant click will bring you to the page with complete descriptions, pricing and ordering ability. This could the moment I announce Aquamarine, the birthstone of March, instead however, I prefer to share with you another new piece of jewelry which reminds me of tiny fluffy chicks. Although I am referring to a brilliant yet subtle colored stone, this Rutilated Quartz necklace is perfect for Spring as an accent for your wardrobe. This piece is versatile enough to wear all year round, but exudes freshness to me.  The brilliant accent stones muted in the back ground remind me of Easter eggs. Love this piece!

Before I embark on food, I wanted to share another piece that I simply love. The Baroque pearl is upfront, and the whispering tourmalines are but an echo lying quietly in the background. How utterly romantic! Take a look below.  Pure, demure and shy. Pearls are wonderful to bring about new beginnings, as are diamonds. Spring exudes exactly this! As nature begins to sprout, color becomes more important in our lives. The dormancy of winter is dissipating, as the pastels begin to shoot up. You’ve heard me time and time again discuss the life that stones carry from earth. This is why they are healing when worn or held. The outcome can be profound. I love creating these pieces of healing art adornments for the body.

PASTEL FOODS

In keeping this blog post on the lighter side, here are a few creative concepts in which one can ingest pastel foods.  These foods are whimsical, enchanting and fun! First up in keeping with the season..

Easter Eggs:

Mint Ice Cream:


Subtle Seduction- French Macarrons:

Cotton Candy Classic:

How can you not smile? Hence, my smile inducing and joy inspiring blog post for March. It was fun. I hope you enjoyed it too. The longer and lighter days have just begun. As nature awakens, I hope it will inspire you to listen to your heart and soul. There is a bounty about to Spring out there. What will you do to celebrate?

Thank you for taking this journey with me. You all inspire me to write. That alone, is enough for me to be grateful for.

Thank you!

Yours in joy,

Dava

 

The Sparkle & Splendor of April

April flutters into the wings of change. With it, spring arrives, along with a bevy of other natural things we anxiously await. Such as flooding daylight, flowers, birds chirping, bees buzzing and bugs singing. Nature awakes, and so do our souls.  Did you know that the word April means to open or bud,in Latin? This month we all re awaken from our long deep sleep. Here comes my photo of the Pussy Willow. A sure sign of hope and optimism of all the nature to come.

IMG_7241_2April is tricky. It’s warm, then we feel like we have reverted back to hibernation as the rain sets in, but it is indeed a slow positive climb upward! Drops of rain bring a meditative state of mind, cleansing of the inner spirit, and overall relaxed feeling to embrace what is.

Screen Shot 2014-08-31 at 9.19.06 PMThose born in April can celebrate not only their birthdays, but their birthstone! Everyone wants one. Everyone would love to receive one. What are they?  Diamonds. Their optical properties are simple. It’s all about the 4 Cs.. the carat, cut, color, and clarity. But I am not selling diamonds here, exactly. I am here to share the healing properties, and some of the pave ( paved) diamond jewels from Nymph.  I love this abstract photo directly below.

Screenshot 2015-04-14 18.51.59This April birthstone, the Diamond, is a symbol of purity. It bonds relationships bringing love and clarity into partnership. We can talk about the husband and wife bonding over this stone, and the longevity of relationship and it being the sign of commitment, that is, on the traditional level and it is so.  Diamond has been a symbol of wealth for thousands of years and is one of the stones creating manifestation, and attracting abundance. Traditionally, the photo below personifies this cut of the magical Diamond.

Screenshot 2015-04-14 18.58.03There is no doubt, that diamonds have been a wealth symbol for thousands of years. Like it or not. It is an amplifier of energy, and one of the very few stones that doesn’t need  recharging. It increases the energy of what ever it comes into contact with. Diamonds clear emotional and mental pain. It reduces fear, and brings about new beginnings. May I simply circle back to what APRIL is all about. New beginnings! Like it or not. Letting go of what’s not working in your life. Don’t fear. Letting go allows for the New to enter what ever that may be. It’s the unknown that freezes us most of the time, I kid you not.

IMG_2706

Starburst? Sunburst? Pave (paved) diamonds rule this triple strand Green Tourmaline adornment. The symbol recognizes its glory and shows it off here, in a splendid form.  It is rich, regal and stately. The Diamonds show off the wonderful celestial shape, as the earthy green tourmalines  imbue their hues and tones in the light.

Below are 12mm pave diamond discs, delightfully dangling from 18k gold ear wires. These splendid stones shine in the dark, dazzle the eye and will make all women happy to be alive, if given as a gift.

IMG_3976One more unique show and tell here with the following photograph. I LOVE these!  Just another variety of the coveted diamond.. Diamond Slices!

IMG_2926 Natural diamonds slices offer a very clear view of their inclusions, telling a “story” about each one. Associated with romance and love, these little stones reflect white light and are highly clearing. Dear April born people! You are so lucky to have diamonds as your birthstone! Nymph now resides full-time at MATSU. I invite you to come in and feed your eyes on the beauty that resonates here. Anytime, call me for an appointment if the hours don’t merge with yours.

Frenzy, Fun and Frolic

 Why not? I decided today should be a that we could simply be. Play. Laugh. Cook. Dance. Listen to your favorite music. What ever it takes to go inside and just find that inner child and let her/him out. Don't be afraid. Play!

Screen shot 2012-12-03 at 7.34.38 AM This photograph looks and feels like a complete delight, as the imagery taps into a very bright place for me, inside the soul. The mixture of colored lights as they seem, form the shape of hearts. The imagery reminds me of confetti. Happy times.  

As the Holiday season embarks upon us. It brings many emotions with it. Some sad, some introspective, some happy. It is easy when we think back upon our child hoods and recall the times of family gatherings, holiday lights and the celebrations abound. We concern ourselves with gift giving, and move about our lives this time of year with hussle and bustle. In actuality, this should be a time of peace, love and joy. No expectations. Just celebrations. This photo reminds me of the beauty that lies in Winter, as well as the magic a single Cardinal can inspire.
Screen shot 2012-12-04 at 10.18.12 PM No snow here yet, but with the thoughts and sense of Winter months, we hibernate and light more candles inside, more fires and become much more inward. The introspective moods this time of year is a way to nurture ourselves. Lighting a fire accompanies this.

IMG_0209

At the beginning message for this post, the weather shed warmer degrees. It is now freezing rain outdoors. Not conduscive to running out to a 6 am power yoga class as intended for  this morning- everthing is ice. I realize the fear in my body around the notion of leaving in the dark. Therefore, I accept, and write. With the tragedies occuring in the world- and in our own back yard, the Connecticut massacre. Horrific. Stunned the lives of many, all over the world. Guns are certainly an issue, but I think the mental state is far worse. They don't reside well together, for sure. The lives are lost, and those surrounding it will never be the same. For this we pray. For happiness, joy and peace in the world. In our own lives and 1 state away, a rural little Connecticut town. 

These times, healing is very crucial. There are endless ways to approach this. Escaping comes to mind..However, upon the return, there you are. Facing the tragedy, dealing with the mourn, especially at this fragile time of year- anyway- triggering many emotions inside of us all, in one way or another. Traditionally, families and friends unite, but for those lacking, it can be a very down time of the year. My heart goes out to those suffering, and to those who have lost loved ones recently or years ago. The pain dulls in time, but in reality, it still exists. 

Color, retail therapy, a cocktail in a social setting, music, excercize are a few ways to handle the healing process. When I mention color, immediately, my association goes to my passion. Gemstones. These, crystals and minerals all have healing properties as well as other properties to benefit our life. Through astrology, the science of this healing technique allows our minds to soak up the knowlege with ease.
IMG_8103

My attraction to stones began in elementary school. My fascination with science was limited to the gemstones. The colors, textures and discoveries had me captivated. Little did I know way back then, that I would actually invite them into my life, now as an adult , designing with these stones. I will describe more about the direct connection between the Astrological aspect and the gemstones themselves as time goes on, but for the moment, when you visit my website http://www.etsy.com/shop/NymphJewels , as you click on any piece of jewelry, you will learn something! The stones speak. They all have "personalities" that delight, heal, feel good and look wonderful to the eye, on the body and just beautiful to hold.  The Etsy site has been a work in progress. Like building a house. Little by little. Step by step, every inch of the way. I didn't realize the time it takes to build, and the substantial resolutions once completed. But layering and building the "store" is different than having a brick and mortar structure I was so accustom to. The challenges here are very different, but in shooting the jewels, I hope you can all" feel" them with your eyes.
IMG_9109

  I provide a simple visual of 3 gemstones here. This is one of the newest additions to the Etsy site.https://www.etsy.com/listing/118293846/energy-cluster-stone-necklace 

I love the playful jewel tones in this delicate yet powerful piece. When visiting the pieces on the site, you will find descriptions, healing tips and benefits in wearing anything from a Diamond, to an Amethyst.

I love sharing this with you, and hope that you will visit the Shop. Nymph Jewels.  I will be adding more information all about my new journey through the stones as it enters my life.

For those of you wishing to continue receiving my blog – I am thrilled. For those who do not, I invite you to unsubscribe at any time.

I would love hearing from you, so feel free to contact me through my blog at anytime.. or on Etsy.

I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and hope the magic carries you throughout the new year!

Season Greetings,

In joy,

Funny how life is. Just listen, and it will speak.

 The trials and tribulations of the season upon us, or me at least.

I get hit with 4 torn lower back ligaments. Not able to walk. Nor sleep. Nor sneeze. Sound familiar to any of you ???

Just think, and plan and dream. This is the time for me to be patient. This task comes to me as a test for my stamina, and ease to surrender. Being a doer, I now must simply be. Allowing the tissue to heal, and staying put and listening for what could be next.- in the life phase, that is.

To ask for guidance and listen very very closely for answers. They may not appear as I expect. That is one trick in moving ahead. Not really a trick, but certainly a treat. There are lessons when things don't go as expected, or as we wish. I was near "crippled" last weekend. I thought I over stretched in a yoga class. I few to Los Angeles in this state. The plane does not cooperate. I had no idea how much worse the pain would get until I arrived at my destination. IMG_1826

So thoroughly excited to see my little 21 year old. All grown up and taking care of her Mom and Dad. Driving around the city of angels as though she always lived there. She has grown naturally accustomed to all of the nuances of the city, including being in the car for way too long. Another back hindrance for me- another test of my tolerance. IMG_1835

We managed to escape to Southern California and saw sights unseen by us. The beaches were beautiful. Even in the pain I was in, I managed to mentally escape. The air was brisk, the sound of the waves crashing was so soothing. What is it about the sea?  The vastness. The limitlessness. Just truly amazing. The most unusual thing were the noises were heard from the sea. Low and behold- we followed the sounds and wound up staring endlessly at the :  piles of sea lions, which we thought were adorable, but later learned that they were a complete menace and parked themselves also, on the Yacht Dock, creating a barrier for those boat owners to actually enter their boats. How unfortunate.  IMG_1849

This trip to LA was not as mentally invigorating as I anticipated- due to my condition, but none the less, the difference in terrain, climate and driving skills ha ha one endures out there clearly added to his adventure.

April brings Spring, the birds and new beginnings. This season as beautiful as it is, still has a chill in the air.

Not quite ready for 85 degree weather yet, although we had that tease a few weeks ago. I found myself inspired to shoot oodles of photos of Nymph jewels for my website and for Etsy. I love shooting when the sun is setting and the natural light is caught on the surface of the stones. I have posted many photos on Face Book, Pinterest and also the Etsy Site. The Birthstone for April is the Diamond. Those brilliant little "tears from the angels" above, an often used  reference.  Available in many forms, I portray 2 versions here of which are for sale through the Etsy site, or you may contact me through my blog. IMG_8016
 These little diamond slices are intricately placed in 18k gold settings. The ear wires are also 18k. Very sweet. the are about $585- from memory. I also have an emerald jade bracelet with a diamond focal bead. One of the first I ever created- I love the vintage tone of these green spheres mixed with the Victorian diamond bead setting. This bracelet is $485. IMG_8093
 Love this shot ! Love the bracelet. Diamond is the symbol for purity. It's pure white light can help you to bring your life into a cohesive whole. It bonds relationships. It also is an amplifier of energy. The diamond clears emotional and mental pain ( how about physical ??? haha). Reduces fear and brings about new beginnings. ( what this month's blog post is all about ) It is a highly creative stone, stimulating imagination and inventiveness. 

I sign off on this blog post wishing you all a wonderful Passover, Easter or which ever it is you celebrate and if neither- certainly, Happy Spring!

I welcome your comments, and also feel free to email me at Dava@davamuramatsu.com with any questions, or queries.

Until I write and share again, I wish you all a wonderful Spring!

 

Yours in joy,

Dava
