It only took a year, but this pandemic afforded me the time to buckle down and hold myself accountable to finishing projects I started a long while ago. The Purl Soho Flying Geese beaded loom bracelet was just one of those projects. I started it in earnest back in August 2019 and nearly finished theContinue reading “f.o. : flying geese woven bracelet.”
I’ve been obsessively making these 3D peyote stitch triangle earrings for a few weeks now. I’m in love with the statement they make and the endless color combinations. I also tried my hand at turning one into a large pendant that can fit through a chain around your neck and gifted it to my mumContinue reading “make | peyote stitch earrings.”
I’ve always wanted to take a stab at finger knitting, but no projects screamed out to me. Until PurlBKnit’s Brandi Harper and her brilliant finger knitted necklaces with gorgeous t-shirt yarns, sold in kits, no less. This was such a quick and instantly gratifying make.

A pair of hand beaded earrings I made for a former student, on her graduation day. I love the color combination and the slightly metallic pink of some of the beads. It definitely makes me want to get out my beads and get making. I think I have too many hobbies; there isn’t enough timeContinue reading “bead.”
I made these peyote stitch beaded earrings for a graduating senior of mine. I think they fit her unique style, are hip to my own style, and will be greatly appreciated. I haven’t done enough beading lately. I have too many maker interests, and so, something has to give. I go through fits and spurtsContinue reading “peyote beaded earrings.”
A new turquoise drop necklace from The Vamoose, an etsy shop I quite adore. The chain is 27-inches long, which is just how I like my necklaces. Gorgeous.
Graham Greene once famously noted of himself and men, “I had very good dentures once…some magnificent gold work…It’s the only form of jewelry a man can wear that women fully appreciate.” If only this were true…of both men and women; then I should not find myself drooling over the hand-made necklaces from New Orleans artistContinue reading “Of Graham Greene, Dentures, and Dejarnette?”
