Python Cuff sneak peek

Well, I've been working like a busy bee!

Here's what I completed this morning:

It's a pattern for one of my new pieces -  a python cuff! The colors are exaggerated to help me with the beading process. The real piece will be woven with subtle mixed metals. I expect it to be a real showstopper! This will be available in my Whisperwill line, but if you love it, you can pre-order at a discount through my Kickstarter campaign which will be launching shortly. I'll post a link once it's up!

Last night, Colton helped me make this new logo image. Thanks, honey!


Finally, a link to share.

I always have music playing while I work. I'm currently humming along to "Bear Necessities" from The Jungle Book, but this morning I was on a Ben Folds streak and stumbled across this little gem. Enjoy :)

Media Monday: Adam and Dog


I am lucky to have some very talented friends.

This Sunday, my good friend Minkyu Lee said that his animated short is almost ready for a friends-and-family viewing. I couldn't be more excited! It's going to be absolutely beautiful.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's nominated for an Oscar this coming season.

I'm not kidding, people. He's that good. He already beat out Disney (where he works as a character developer), Pixar, Dreamworks, etc. to win an Annie award for Best Animated Short Subject.

Watch the trailer! It's so dreamy. It'll get your inspiration juices flowing for sure!

Go Minkyu, Go!!!

Media Monday: Kimbra

Maybe I'm stuck in 2000 (anyone else remember when the Bye Bye Bye video first came out? My sister and I were glued to the tv for weeks), but I still LOVE a good music video.

Enter Kimbra. I love this song. This is my go-to music video to watch when I'm having a bad day.

It just makes me feel better.



Enjoy!

Media Monday - Samsara


Oh dear me, what a beautiful film.

This is the trailer for Samsara, from the makers of Baraka. 

It's a silent documentary, if you must put it into a genre, but the filmmakers described it as "guided meditation" during the Q&A after the screening. (I was lucky enough to attend a screening at the Cinerama Dome with Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson)

The images are stunning. It's a profound film, exploring birth, death, and rebirth.

It made me think and feel, which is the mark of any great film.

See it if you get a chance, why don't you! I'd love to know how you like it.

Fall Wardrobe

I have fall on the brain!

I'm a little obsessed with fall clothing right now.

I love that it's cozy, and effortless.

I'm dying over the fall collection from Closed.

I mean, really. Look at this.









Please, can I have these outfits.

I would wear them with my new Michael Kors lookalike rose gold watch

(It's actually from Target.)

and the new pieces from my Etsy shop.

Media Monday - Yokoo



Today I'm featuring this gorgeous video from the "Handmade Portraits" series by Etsy. I'm an Etsy seller myself, and I love to see who else makes things. Yokoo is one of the most inspirational artists I've ever come across. Please check out her shop. I love that she says that her work comes out of silence. Her spirit really motivates me to create, and to take joy in the process. Her styling and photography are impeccable, and I would feel so cool wearing any of her unique pieces.






















All images from Yokoo's shop.

Just gorgeous.
