All That Glitters...

There really is so much that other cultures can offer us in regard to jewelry + history. Everything we know now and enjoy about jewelry all had its roots in the past. While gold isn't generally a metal that I have an affinity to, I appreciate its history and place in so many cultures around the world.

This place seems amazing - I think I would very much love to see this some day... The Dubai gold souk - amazing! Beautiful!

Over the Hundred Mark and Now What?

One of my goals for my Etsy shop was to reach at least 100 listings (don't ask me why - it's kind of arbitrary, isn't it?). I have over 100 listings - now people, please, shop!

I've also decided to be brave and just go with the (my) flow. Listen to my creativity instead of trying to control it.

On a random note: how many of you love the smell of a Sharpie? I do. I can never have enough of these pens lying around the studio. My favorite color is blue. What's yours?

Happiness is...

... when you get a shipment of goodies in the mail and you're ready to play!

Happy 2013...

Is it really already February 8th? I am still coming to terms with it being 2013...

What's been happening... Sadly, two more of my retail stores are closing. Absurdly high rent increases in a couple of locations in San Francisco is forcing out small businesses. On the other hand, I have been working on doing more business on my Etsy site. I'm also doing a collaboration with a good friend and an artist. I was approached by a local gallery last week and this week, got an invite to participate in a fashion trunk show event! Yay! 2013 is going to be THE year! Yes!
