Cathy Gins
Jewelry Dreams

“I dreamed that my jewelry asked if it was still beautiful if no one saw it? and then asked me to give it new life. I heard that my crystal chains wanted to be rain, and that an opal stone wanted to be a mother. I saw that zebras live in oceans, that sapphires and diamonds are plucked from the sky by angels, and that Jesus caught a fish wrapped in gold. I dreamed that I had so many dreams that I put each one in a box with windows, so I could look inside to remember them. When I woke up the boxes were here, my dioramas of Jewelry Dreams.”
