Oh, Can I Have One?

Or two?  I love these funny-looking creatures.  If I had a little farm-a-thing-thing, I would totally get a couple.  And some goats.  And definitely a coop-full of chickens.

Hard Work = Little Goodies

I've been making some new items so that I can get my Etsy Shop stocked.  Also making some pieces to show at an upcoming neighborhood sidewalk sale that I will be at with a couple of other artists.  It's hard to stay focused and busy, especially with San Francisco cramming in the lost summer in the course of a couple of days.

From the top:
Orbit Pendant (argentium sterling silver and copper)
Close-up on some Vertigo Pendants
Little Monsters (my new favorite piece!)
Custom Necklace (fossilized coral cabochon set in argentium sterling silver on sterling and leather chain)

Saffron Rare Threads

Hi folks!  I'm excited to announce that my Hsu-Lee Designs jewelry is now being sold at Saffron Rare Threads, at the Embarcadero Center in San Francisco!

This is my second retail location and I'm pushing to expand in San Francisco and then beyond.  Needless to say, I was both excited and nervous when I brought in the goods for my first meeting with Kelly (the store manager) and Priya (owner and designer of SRT).  They were the sweetest ladies and I felt like my work was really admired and welcomed in their lovely boutique.

So, for those of you who are ever in the area, check out the new location - both the amazing clothing and my amazing jewelry!  The space is really beautiful and I am very lucky and happy girl to have my work there.

Check It Out!

If you need something to do this weekend (and even if you're busy), you should check out the event at Clay Creations Studio, in Pacifica.

My friend Linda, is going to be selling some of her amazing ceramic wares at this event.

And I'm going to get there early to get my hands on some of those fabulous cups.

Elk, California

18 miles south of Mendocino, Elk is a teeny-tiny town with some of the most beautiful coastline I've ever seen in person.  The weather was fantastic and the town was barely humming, despite being a three-day weekend.

But Wait!

Before the weekend officially starts - here's an image of the new shop!

Time to Coast

Been super-crazy-crazy and busy with the grand opening of my Etsy shop.  It was quite a feat to get it up and now I realize - there is still a ton, I mean, a TON more to do.  But that's the thing about doing your own thing - there's always more to be done.  I'm happy with what I've done.  But I want more.  More is needed.  Argh!

But I think a little break is deserved.  Time to coast. .. . .
