I teach a parent/child music class (we’re on hiatus for the next few weeks) and it’s a delight to sing and play on the ukulele my own version of “What A Wonderful World” and see how readily everyone sings along…we so need the arts right now — the healing balm that it is. How we all smile when we see the children smile! As facilitator, I do my best to express how singing/dancing/playing musical instruments is Heaven on Earth…

I’m grateful to do what I do…with these hands, with this voice…

Helen

I’ve heard that the difference between a saint and a shaman is that a saint is waste-free (and in agreement with singer Jack Johnson, plastic-free as much as possible).

(I don’t know if I’m a saint, but to me, the Earth is a living organism that I show immense respect and it provides me some of Life’s most important things such as life-force, oxygen, and clean water…)

And since being a saint is related to “goodness” then I tend to think that the future of good design is modular design…and this will apply to all useful things…as modular design offers choice and is relatively waste-free (waste-free in terms of Earth resources, as well as in time, money, and energy)…think vehicles, bicycles, homes, dinnerware, toothbrushes…and not to mention clothing and jewelry.

Recently, my colleague/friend Carolyn requested these diamond-shaped (adjustable shape!) hoop earrings and I discovered they fit well with my Freedom Hoop Earring Components…and since they’re created with conflict-free/Earth-friendly sterling silver, I figured that I’d create some elongated versions of the components…voila!

Hopefully, these photos depict the many permutations of these Helenbobelen Thinnest and Strongest Thin Hoop Earrings…and yes! they also go with the traditional Hbb thin round hoop earrings…

(Now you can see how I spent my birthday hours, besides singing and dancing with the young’uns who remarked on my earrings…and cajoling my ukulele into playing it how my ear wanted…)

These Freedom (VI) hoop earrings components will be available after some time (I need to further road test them…) and will be around $70.00. As usual, they’re handcrafted by me, sustainably-created with biodegradable/recyclable/plastic-free packaging, recyclable, and one-of-a-kind just like you!

Sometimes I pretend a Voice judge whilst perusing Youtube music…and when I come across amazing talent like in the above video, I’m like, “get out of here…this is too good to be true…”

Although my voice is silent and mouth motionless, my heart starts to sing, and people turn around to look at me…and good friends phone me…this is the oneness that people feel knowingly/unknowingly. Music is heaven…and although today was my birthday…and I told a couple of people…most of the world knew through the good feels…

I’m glad to be a musician and artist. Today was too good to be true.

Thank you to Renee and Dave (not to mention Maroon 5) for their passion, talent, and shared joy.

xo,
Helen
