The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.✨
"This is a story about my favorite river, the Columbia. Flowing between Oregon and Washington, the Columbia is home to most of the salmon in the Pacific Northwest. This is the river that Woody Guthrie wrote songs about, the river that has sustained human and animal life since far before its resources were ever capitalized upon by westward expansion, the river that flows through parks and canyons and mountain ranges and spills out into the impossible expanses of the Pacific Ocean. It's a river whose wildlife is threatened every day by climate change.
For several decades now, water temperatures in the Columbia have warmed, becoming increasingly inhospitable to salmon, a cold water species. As salmon populations dwindle, not only is it harder for Oregonians like me to eat sustainably caught salmon, but local fishing economies suffer and predators like the grizzly bear struggle to find food, knocking the whole ecosystem of the Columbia River basin dangerously out of balance.
We need to act against rising water temperatures everywhere by putting a price on carbon. It's time to stop letting big polluters profit while at-risk ecosystems and local fishermen disproportionately feel the negative effects. Not only will a carbon price help guard the Columbia against warmer water, it will also discourage the shipment of millions of gallons of crude oil along railways that run only meters away from the riverbed.
This story isn't just about the Columbia River. It's about every river, every mountain, every ecosystem and economy that is suffering due to climate change. Rather than forfeit our world's precious resources to polluters, let's #PutAPriceOnIt to ensure that our world stays healthy.”

This is a story about my mother and a story about fairness. When I was growing up, she always embraced my successes, but also reminded me that someone, somewhere didn't have access to the same opportunities as I did. I remember her telling me that when I take a step forward, it is only fair to reach back and take five people with me. My mother raised me to be a man who progresses when others do better and who struggles when others do worse. If a young girl develops asthma because of exposure to damaging pollutants, that hurts me even if she isn't my child. If a mom struggles to feed her children because opportunity isn't stretching far enough, that starves me even if it isn't my mother. A fair world is where one person’s pain is everyone’s suffering. To this day, my mother has taught me that I should fight for a world that’s fair.
That is why we need a price on carbon. Today, polluters pour harmful gases into the atmosphere without having to pay for the damages. The people who pay are the vulnerable ones; the ones who don’t have the opportunity to avoid the pollution. It is the little boy who gets sick because his family can’t afford to move away from a power plant. It is the small island nation drowning because of the pollution other countries emit. This isn't fair. We need a price on carbon because we deserve a just world. A world where polluters pay and all people can thrive. We need a world my mother would be proud to leave behind.

"Sometimes cultural standards just need a different perspective so we can see them for what they really are- a collective acceptance… a subconscious agreement. We are in charge of our agreement. Little girls everywhere are absorbing our agreement, passive or otherwise. And it begins early. The message that girls are not pretty unless they're incredibly thin, that they're not worthy of our attention unless they look like a supermodel or an actress on the cover of a magazine is something we are all willingly buying into. This conditioning is something girls then carry into womanhood. We use celebrity "news" to perpetuate this dehumanizing view of females, focused solely on one's physical appearance, which tabloids turn into a sporting event of speculation. Is she pregnant? Is she eating too much? Has she let herself go? Is her marriage on the rocks because the camera detects some physical "imperfection"? I used to tell myself that tabloids were like comic books, not to be taken seriously, just like a soap opera for people to follow when they need a distraction. But I really can't tell myself that anymore because the reality is the stocking and objectification I've experienced first-hand, going on decades now, reflects the warped way we calculate a woman's worth."
Animals, and our love for animals, inspired each piece in the collection. When Graziela and I first started working on them, I shared with her my love for rhinos and elephants and we drew inspiration from these gorgeous beings to create the first few pieces. Once the creative flood gates opened, the ideas kept flowing freely...driven by our shared passion, and her endlessly giving heart.
Every single piece is deeply meaningful, the dark rhodium represents the pain these animals are subjected to, but there is also hope, joy, LOVE and HEALING.
I'm grateful to be able to share this with you and to have had the opportunity to work closely with such a talented woman. Thank you @Graziela Gems <3
