"I recently finished working on a project for a band," is probably one of the coolest sentences I've been able to utter as of late. But really! I am so grateful a dear old friend asked me to create necklaces for her and her bandmates to celebrate a year of making music together. What an … Continue reading I Love Commissions

Wow! It has been way too long since my last post. Over the last few months, I've been working to carve some time to work on jewelry and all of the Littlest Friend outlets, but it has been a busy season!
