Hope is the thing with feathers...

Last Summer I started naming my collections. It made it easier for me to keep track of the designs. I used to literally sketch out the design on the order form to remember which one a customer was asking for.

So when I create something new I try to give it a name that I think captures it's personality. That's why so many of my pieces have female names. This most recent collection has become special to me, and I wanted it to have a special name.

I bounced around names that incorporated "dream" or "nest" but nothing quite clicked for me. So I finally named it.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.
