Reaching Higher

Who: Pamela Hitchcock
What: Handcrafted 18K Gold and Sterling Silver Jewelry
Where: Winterport, ME
Why: Pamela's nature-inspired designs are easy and elegant, combining the soft glow of finely textured 18K and sterling with classic gems. She makes each piece herself from start to finish, a practice that gets my attention right much hard work but definitely worth it! It gives the work a sincerity and integrity that you just can't get when you parse up the process between many hands.
She also participates regularly in Designing Women shows, regional art fairs that feature remarkable women artisans and benefit women- and family-oriented non-profits such as breast cancer support groups, art and therapy retreats, family shelters and health and counseling programs.
Pamela brings to mind a favorite quote by Helen Keller: "One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar." If you have a talent, enjoy exploring it. Then use it to make a difference, no matter how small. One step at a time will change the world!
