Statement:

I dream of the cave of Lascaux…

Its beautiful paintings of running horses,
born by the flickering light of torches….

Never meant to see the light of day,
yet brought to light in our lifetime.
Survived ten thousand years,
yet nearly destroyed by the breath of ten thousand visitors…
Too delicate to survive our modern world,
The cave was closed and sealed.

Lost.
Found.
And lost again.

The horses now run
in the darkness of their cave

forever.

We do not understand the mystery of these paintings.
We do not know what they meant to the people who created them.
Their message was not meant for us.

But their beauty and power create profound echoes
in our modern hearts.

What ancient, yearning dreams of hope and beauty
brought forth these haunting images?

Ten thousand years from now,
Who will know the makings of our hands?
And who will know the mysteries of our hearts?

Testimonials:

 

"Luann's creations speak a special language. When you find one that speaks to you, you must buy it. I have two of her larger, Shaman necklaces and they will always be my favorite pieces. Spiritually, they represent a connection to a long ago past and they’re beautiful. Always receive many compliments on them."

Suzanne W.

"Another gorgeous piece. I just bought one of Luann Udell’s other bear necklaces to replace one I’d lost, and could not resist this one too. Her pieces are all works of love. Now I have another favorite necklace."
