Immerse Yourself:Tierracast & Taghore Evening | February 15

Findings are those elements that seem insignificant whilst creating jewelry and objects of adornment yet, play a pivotal role in creating, assembling and finishing pieces.  We have been showcasing some of the best findings around made by the folks at Tierracast and this season the selection is breathtaking, whimsical and full of special details.  From clasps, headpins, eyepins, jump rings, spacers, beads, charms, links, pendants all in precious metal finishes over lead free pewter, these elements are a delight to work with.  Creating a poetry of sorts in beading and stringing.

With this in mind, as we celebrated the poetry of Rumi this past week we will shift to an evening with the first Nobel Laureate from India.Writer, statesman and poet Rabindranath Tagore from the Bengal Province of India in the late 1800's was prolific in his work, from drawings to plays, musical scores and poetry he always touched on themes of love within the context of sacred and profane.

Stream of Life
The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.
It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.
It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
and of death, in ebb and in flow.
I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
Rabindranath Tagore translated from the Bengali
