My Monday mornings involve a strategic planning meeting with my cup of coffee and my planner. Usually this consists of me drinking about five cups of coffee and looking at instagram on my phone.
All I have on the books this week is scouring antique stores for a vanity table (I haven’t discussed this with The Boyfriend yet but I’m sure he’ll agree this is a sensible buy) and designing bride and bridesmaids jewelry for a wedding in Canada.
Moving when you work from home is less than ideal.
It took days to figure out which boxes were which, and it makes you quickly realize how much junk you actually own. In my case, I realized I mostly only own junk.
But finally, in a box someone labeled kitchen, I found all my jewelry/office/shipping things and set up shop. Judging by the handwriting, that someone was me.
Apparently moving is not my strong suit.
So now I can resume my life of designing jewelry with the added task of designing bathrooms. Maybe I should become a general contractor. I can take southern Louisiana by storm, building houses in stylish jewels.
Today I needed a little something extra. It started with a little espresso in my coffee this morning and then apparently later in the afternoon, ‘a little something extra’ tuned into jewels and rose gold glitter mary janes.
And a coat a paint.
A date lunch with The Boyfriend, cream colored nails and midi rings. What more could a girl want…
I had a ‘Mother/Daughter Day’ shopping jewels for my upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. I always like taking her with me; she’s honest. Sometimes brutally so, which is fortunate (or unfortunate depending on my mood) because it’s so easy to get stuck in a design habit.
It’s nice having a little extra insight.
My style has always been decidedly girlie. Short dresses, lace, pink~ you name it, it defines my look. And while this has always been reflected in my jewelry design, I’m aiming to be a little edgier for Spring/Summer 2013. It’s turning out to be a little harder than I had anticipated; it’s like going against a girlie force of nature.
The process has been made easier with my finds of gorgeous metal-esque looking pyrite, darker more intense stones and little skull details (albeit in rose gold). So hopefully this will add a little depth to the collection.
Then, as our ‘Mother/Daughter Days’ often go, we stopped by a cafe in the design district for some sauvignon blanc and catching up. Perfect way to end our shopping day…
