My new lomatium rings are inspired by a week in the high desert. The feeling of sleeping under the stars, smokin' herb and making dashboard sunprints after a canyon white-out. Friends, campfires, mysterious limestone crimps, lunar rings and moonlit contrails. Eating sand & losing a mitten on the way back from pooping in the trees...the magical river, too.
(not the poop part, just the magic part.)
