Finally back from a long break ✨ running an online business means many hours of artificial light and being stuck to a chair or a couch. I really needed to get away to gain some white space to keep me inspired and creative. Nature getaways are my go-to options. Most of my work is inspired in the world’s flora, but oftentimes people see other forms in my jewelry pieces, and I always enjoy hearing peoples' first impressions of them; it's like a way of seeing their reflection through my jewelry ✨ I've heard comments of The D&O Collection seen as feathers, leaves (obviously 😛 at least for me, hehe), and even horsehair! How diverse right?! Swipe and take a look! What do you see?
This entire business of mine began with a simple hobby. With early support from family, then friends and now all of you... it has become something very special. I can’t begin to express how much it means to me that you enjoy what I create or at least view my images. Instagram feels very much like a scrapbook or journal, I assume a lot of people feel that way, a place to share things you make, love or find funny. I found this picture again recently and it just got me thinking...so I just wanted to share it again. My sister-in-law, Julie, hand drew my logo. I think that’s pretty special. #narrowgaugedesigns#thenewgemstonestyle#itsafamilyaffair
How cute are these handcrafted earrings from @liberty_st ? I love statement earrings, but sometimes the weight of them leave my ears feeling tender. These are made from leather aand feathers making them super light and playful!
