Cypress & Sage - Hill Country Living
A beautiful community of creatives and artisans inhabit Wimberley.
Painters. Sculptors. Musicians. Writers. Poets. Potters. Textile Artists.
And a remarkably talented jewelry designer following a vision and a call.
Meet my friend, Mary Owens.
Check out the selection of beauties she displayed at her Christmas event.
Mary's story started with a search for significance.
This excerpt from Mary's website (www.mostudioart.com)
recounts the inspiring moment
she received the Key to the Kingdom assignment.
I was working on a project for a client and working with an image of an antique key in my photo editing software. As I turned the key to fit the working space of the file, I accidentally created a duplicate.
Intrigued, I turned it again in the opposite direction and the 3 keys made
the cross of Christ!
At that moment I heard in my spirit,
"I AM the Key of the Kingdom of Heaven."
This totally gave me chills so I grabbed my bible and went to Matthew 16:19,
"I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven...”
A piece of jewelry was birthed from this divine encounter.
The cross became the keystone to the Key to the Kingdom line
which includes a variety of necklaces, bolos, cuffs, and earrings.
The unique collections are hand-crafted in Texas, rich in symbolism,
and designed to be opportunities to speak about faith in style.
Proceeds from the sale of Mary's jewelry are donated to missions.

Adjective: Crucial. Important. Essential. Vital. Significant.
Think about the keys clanking on your key fob.
They all have a distinct purpose. Whether the key is used daily or once a year.
If something you need is behind a locked door,
or in a lockbox, filing drawer, or a post office cube,
you need a specific key.
That key is crucial, important, essential, vital, significant.
Friends are like keys.
One of my favorites lives in Denver. We see each other once or twice a year.
But her value to me is as special and individual
as the friends I see every week.
The depth of a friendship is not measured by the calculation of minutes.
Friendships blossom through meaningful
and sometimes unexpected interaction.
Conversation. Common interests. Honesty. Trust. Vulnerability.
Understanding. Encouragement. Empathy. Laughter. Tears. Love.
These sprinkles of life create a connection that is
crucial, important, essential, vital, significant.
Christmas is a wonderful time to reach out to friends.
Who needs to hear from you?
Comfort & Joy
A friend loves at all times.
Keys alleviate a traumatic episode for Anne,
but Delana will have to unlock the secrets in the diary to understand why

I love thinking of friendships like keys. Now I am sitting here considering which friends unlock what parts of my heart. Thank you, Peggy for that cool insight!
