Aymala Studio

I’ve always found that when you turn a corner it’s best to keep going. I cherish my past, but when I’m done with something, I’m done.  What I’ve left will always be there, whether I look back to it or not.

Looking back only reminds us of what we’ve left. It will be there, the same, whether we look or not. So I choose to look forward. 

That’s easier said than done of course. But for so many of us, satisfaction comes in the form of something new that breaks us free from the existence of old.

Amy Kawadler turned her corner a year ago, opening Aymala Studio for her hand made jewelry. She is an artist, a personality and supporter of others. 

Let’s visit her studio and support her journey.

She’s written her own screenplay, RV and teamed with screenwriter West […]

People often ask what green coffee beans look like.

This photo shows the before and after look of the Tanzanian […]

Breaking Chains

This wasn’t quite the end I was expecting. Thankfully, the derailleur snapped at a point in Telegraph Canyon where I could pretty much coast all the way back to the car.  It’s not a common bike part to break, but it’s the second time it happened to me.  The first was in 1980, while riding […]
