This month’s theme of “Let Love Rule” could not have come at a better time. Life is always full of challenges, to be sure, but this month feels particularly, ahem, trying. Surely I’m not the only one in this boat. Show of hands? The BSP is a blessing in so many ways because it pulls focus away from the challenges and into the bright and the beautiful. The artists we feature inspire a sense of purpose, a sense of drive, in my life and I am so appreciative for the opportunity to share them with the rest of you.
Padgett Hoke designs and creates a line of simple, stunning jewelry that evokes inspiration from the get go. Hoke’s line started as a way to finance her desire to create jewelry for herself and has blossomed into a joy-driven creative outlet. Along with her own shop, Padgett Hoke is a featured maker on BRIKA and her love for the outdoors translates into a wealth of perfectly curated pieces to choose from. I am swooning over this Twig Necklace and am thinking I might need the Geometric Gold Square Posts to round it out. Padgett Hoke is definitely letting the love back into my month.
