Happy Monday y’all! I didn’t intend to make a bird when I made the glass cab featured on top, but well… there it is. 😆 Also love the texture of the turquoise! Link to shop is in profile. ❤️

ALL THE FEELS. Happy that I’ll be at @craftoberfest with some of the top makers at @urbanchestnut midtown. It’ll be an epic night market folks, exactly 2 months from now, Thursday, Oct 12th! .

Just dropped off new foil prints, magnets and bottle openers at @rdfco! Check them out at Main Street St. Charles, especially during Festival of the Little Hills. ❤️

Almost forgot I had this pendant! Reorganizing the jewelry case can bring a few surprises. 🙂 It’s hard to capture the gleam from this cultured opal, but it’s there!

Getting a few orders out the door. 🙂 #happymonday
Sometimes sketches do turn out well in reality. 😃 Another monarch opal beauty available on my website. Link in profile!
I’m starting to destash my glass bead pile… stuff that I no longer use. All lampwork beads and handmade by me and have been kiln annealed for strength and durability. Check out my insta stories starting at 11am CST today ...
Another sweet acorn style pendant, with a tiny succulent growing from the top. 😊In my shop, link in profile!
Oh hey again. I updated my online shop with this lovely monarch opal and a few other things as well! 🙂 Link in profile!
I've been silent this week... mostly recovering from my New Orleans trip (especially on the sleep + changing eating habits). But getting back in the swing of things today! So... hey there. 🙂
Last night in the Big Easy, and I'm totes going to enjoy the Blueberry Mojito at @maisarepas. And the Maiz de la Rueda. And of course the Mechada. 😆🍹#eatingnola
Last day in New Orleans and I feel like I've eaten everything. 🤣 Meanwhile, more French Quarter goodness.
Can I have the stools? And the floor? 😆
Underneath all this powdered sugar are beignets. Let's get messy! 😆 #eatingnola
Don't mind me, I'm taking photos of all the architecture in the French Quarter. 🙂#acolorstory
Wandered around the French Quarter. Had a shrimp poboy + crab cakes from @oceanagrill. Finished off the evening at Sucre Boutique for coffee + macrons. First evening in New Orleans has been delicious. 💛🖤💛🖤 #eatingnola
Hey... I'm in New Orleans for a week and staying in the French Quarter. Where should I go first?!
Longer opera-style necklaces with glass focal beads coming soon...
Happy 4th of July! Doing some shopping with Mom today, but first we eat a cheesy melty goodness calzone from @sauceonthesidestl. 😍
Yesterday, I experimented with new cabochon mandrels. Using 3 different types of ivory but used the same silver for all the line + scroll work, I got totally different results. That's what I ❤️ about glass!
