They were inspired by my buddy Dianna Hutts Aston's beautiful book, An Egg Is Quiet. I have a signed copy of the book in my studio. The illustrations are by Sylvia Long. Dianna has some of my jewelry, so I like that some how our creative energies have inspired each other along our journey. To me an egg is hope, the promise of a possibility and a reminder to let our dreams take flight when they are ready.
