If you have been keeping up with my stories then you know that I’m in the process of making 10 rings in this style. I’ve got particular sets of stones that are all similar to be set within this “snakeskin” band. I’m loving them so far, and I hope you are as well 🐍🖤🐍🖤 I have changed the date of my shop restock to Saturday May 4th because I have too many items partially finished and I don’t want to stress myself out. So if you’re interested in anything you have seen from my last few insta posts or my stories, they will all be available May 4th at 10am in my Darker side of Spring update! 🙌🏻thanks for following along. Check my stores for process shots and I’ll also be posting finished video later this evening.
Mountain Design Mugs (12 oz). Because it's all I want to post, and I took so many photos! And you haven't seen a lot of these pieces and combinations outside of the stories. Bay Fog, Classic White, and Bourbon glazes. We're currently glaze firing, doing a bunch of fun pieces for @wholesomebakery and Urban Air Market on May 5th. We're also doing some experiments, and developing some new colors. I know which ones I have my 🤞🏼 for. Some of these mugs are en route to their new homes already, to those of you who nabbed one at the shop mini-update Sunday! The rest will be available at the upcoming craft fair. Except the ones I kept for myself.
WHO WAS KING TUTANKHAMUN AND HOW WAS HIS TOMB DISCOVERED? Tutankhamun was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, and ruled between 1332 BC and 1323 BC. He was the son of Akhenaten and took to the throne at the age of nine or ten. When he became king, he married his half-sister, Ankhesenpaaten. He died at around the age of 18 and his cause of death is unknown. In 1907, Lord Carnarvon George Herbert asked English archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter to supervise excavations in the Valley of the Kings. On 4 November 1922, Carter's group found steps that led to Tutankhamun's tomb. He spent several months cataloguing the antechamber before opening the burial chamber and discovering the sarcophagus in February 1923. When the tomb was discovered in 1922 by archaeologist Howard Carter, under the patronage of Lord Carnarvon, the media frenzy that followed was unprecedented. Carter and his team took 10 years to clear the tomb of its treasure because of the multitude of objects found within it. For many, Tut embodies ancient Egypt's glory because his tomb was packed with the glittering wealth of the rich 18th Dynasty from 1569 to 1315 BC.

i can relate to Van Gogh here. i can't say i know much for certain at all, but stars + the rest of this beautiful planet fill me with wonder and make me dream about the possibilities. let's take care of it. 🌎
You know what’s funny?! I remember thinking “what on earth is a camera BODY?!” when I first started looking for a camera! ⠀ ⠀ I was like... uhhhh are you gonna put the stuff inside it or does body = case?!⠀ ⠀ ANYHOO⠀ ⠀ For anyone out there who might be thinking the same thing, Camera Body + lens = the full camera setup. You know... plus a spare battery, memory cards and all that stuff. And if you’ve ever read my blog you know my obsession with the 50mm 1.2 but it comes with a pricy tag. 💵⠀ ⠀ So Heather asked...⠀ ⠀ “Would a cheaper 50mm lens work? I’m trying to be frugal considering this is just for me to take photos of the kids.”⠀ _______⠀ ⠀ YASS! As long as its in working condition and you like the look of the 50, it’s a win-win! She was asking about the 50mm 1.8 and while there is a big difference in the quality of the blur (aka bokeh), you won’t notice it if you don’t normally shoot on the 1.2!⠀ ⠀ As one JB Daily reader said, “The best lens is the one on your camera.”⠀ ⠀ And while there are techy things that really do set certain lenses apart, I couldn’t agree more. Use what you have — even if it’s a phone! What’s your favorite lens? Like if you had to pick ONE to shoot with for the rest of your life, what would it be?! p.s. diggin’ this blur #jbphototips

Never underestimate the sheer amount of glamour and prestige that being a maker brings. Nights and days of making lemonade out of lemons, making, designing, printing and advertising. Really, it’s what dreams are made of. #kiddingnotkidding
Many simultaneous projects happening in my shop in preparation for "Conflict Exchange", an exhibition which I am honored to be a part. I'll share more details in following posts, but the Cultural Center of Chicago will host the @nationalveteransartmuseum Triennial summit, opening May 4. I'm draw knifing away on some live edge walnut boards that will form a working community table where people are invited to sit around and cut uniforms that will later be pulped into paper. I'm so thrilled to be part of this and will certainly share more details soon . . . . .. #nvam#chicagoart#womenowned#drawknife
We are [finally] able to wave goodbye to old man winter and welcome spring with open arms + an open door at our downtown shop. Come out of hibernation, enjoy some fresh air, and stop by to say |hi| and see what’s new!✌🏼
