Soooo apparently all I had to do was merely mention my new wire shipment excitement because yesterday a little brown box was awaiting me on my porch! My hands couldn’t help but bust it open and get to work and ...
🎉 TA DAAA!!! 🎉
Here are my first creations from last night! It felt so fucking good getting back to my table and creating again. These sister earrings feature quartz crystals, sesame jasper gemstones, and black lava rocks. Plus some new sterling silver headpins that I think look like tiny spears. All in all I’m beyond pleased with these badass, fierce, and funky pair of earrings.
Cheers to many more on the way! 🍻

Repost from my personal Insta simply because I love this photo of me. AND I love this upcoming seasonal shift to fall with all its whimsy and wardrobe.
Detail of a custom piece for a forensic anthropologist’s office. Will be framing it and shipping it off this weekend, and I will miss it! The beautiful thing about commission work is how often it inspires me, helps me view my creativity and work from a new angle, and, of course, gives me an opportunity to try concepts I otherwise wouldn’t have, and watch my clients’ building excitement as we get closer and closer to the completion of our shared vision. The concept for this piece was my client’s (obvious) interest in the human skeletal structure, and reminiscence of the many places he’s lived. What we came up with, shown partially here, included these skeletal feet, foliage of the official state trees from the different US states he’s lived in, and a view of Mt. Rainier. Getting to make a piece so steeped in personal value and sense of home for this client was such a honor. We are lucky individuals, artists - we get to share and celebrate stories and lives in such a unique way.
Meet my new favorite thing to drink: Kefir.
It's fruity, fizzy, sweet, tangy and really healthy. In my opinion, it's way better then regular soda - it can't compare really.
You shouldn't take my word for it though, i've always been adverse to anything other then herbal teas and the occasional carbonated water. But, this I love and y'all should try it yourself.
It is basically water and (dried) fruits, a little sugar and a culture of good bacteria.
Those bacteria are little super heroes that also set up shop in our gut to keep it healthy and able to absorb nutrients.
I'm very intrigued by the whole thing, especially when it comes to the gut-brain connection. Not for the faint of heart, but it comes down to this: whatever goes on in your intestinal track has a direct link to how your brain is functioning. This puts a lot of things in a whole new perspective, one that is not fully understood (yet) but very interesting and worth diving into nontheless. (Some other day - I need to get some stuff out of the way but a blog is coming regarding this)
Anyhow, back to the kefir.
Culture, water, fruits and sugar in a jar and some time. That is all it takes.
The bacteria eat the sugar & fructose over the course of a few days, producing CO2 as a return of favours, which gives a nice fizz.
I've been using the @fermentfactory
starter which is lasting forever! The instructions say only to use figs and no other fruits, but i've been tweaking it ofcourse and the best one so far is ginger/dried apple/raspberry. Loved it.
I still need to get my hands on a batch of kefir beads (the one I have is powdered) because my research says that there's also loads of (wild) greens you can use with that. That would be so much fun to play around with.

|| HEBREWS 13:8|| “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” •
This life might take us many different places, through many different seasons and to many different people. Some times might be wonderful and filled with great joy. Some times might be sorrowful, full of unknowns, doubt and insecurity. But Jesus remains the same. We always have a secure constant if we would only keep our gaze on Him. •
Life in the Army means a lot of uncertainties with moves, deployments, friends leaving, new friends coming and everything else in between. But God has designed every single step and that is to be celebrated! I’m so excited for my sweet friend @mrs.jacquecooper
to fill this map with the places she and her family have and will live while on this crazy journey called military life. The design the pins will make on her map will be unique, just for her, just for her husband, and just for her kids. What a beautiful thing God is doing. •

Keys. Cufflinks. Loose change. And these are just a few. We're not all about weddings here you know 😜 is there anything else you'd like to see?
Morning friends!! I keep wanting to show you sneak peeks of my new craft room, but I keep making messes in here. Imagine that. So I might just be brave and show it to you messy and all. Yeah maybe I will. It'll be like a middle finger to the perfect little squares on IG that keep messing with my head and my soul. For now this delightful little space in my craft room will have to do.
Also, I love using books for props when I'm taking product photos. I just didn't realize how many I had until I put then all in one place. 😳📗📓 I kinda love then even more now though. And I'm super ready to start taking product photos again. All in good time. Happy day friends! I think it's going to be a good one.
