This is what he got
So I am sitting here thinking and am blank. i have no idea what to say, and not sound like high school. I want to say, I don't sit and sting beads, for a fashion statement. alot of time, i dream the design, and then wake up and make it. I have dreamed of my art, and make it happen. i don't work with the fashion guidelines. I work with purpose principles each piece has a purpose whether it is the color or the stone or the texture, i want it to speak to you i am just brain dumping here i don't mass produce a single design, because, i don't create for the masses, I create for the individual
From this he wrote, my words, my emotions, he captured them all, didn't miss a thing. I am amazed at his talent and understanding. I now have an artist statement, a beautiful gift from my brother Jerry Piper
Therefore, I work with stones of all shapes, sizes, colors and weights. Being pretty, or meeting the changing trends of current acceptable fashion statements is irrelevant. Purpose in my work is defined in that stones give me a clear perspective on something the world needs to be reminded of on a day to day basis, which is LOVE. Love of self, combined with love and acceptance of others. The diversity of a stones color, shape, origins and everlasting quality, demands that it be gazed upon with awe, held with reverence, and valued with understanding, not unlike the values we uphold when considering the human family at large. Look at the stones. Look closely. Observe their nuance of color. Touch the stones. Feel their texture and weight. Ask yourself why certain stones are more appealing, and why paired together with other stones draw you to them. Maybe your heart and mind will be enlightened to a hidden secret about your own beauty and value you’ve not been aware of. Then you can proudly wear it as a symbol of why you, like the stones, are beautiful, and one of a kind.
