Boho Inspired

Creating and designing jewelry is just like any other craft. You have to feel inspired. And when you’re inspired you just go with it.

Sometimes you have no idea what you’re going to come up with. Other times, it’s exactly what you pictured.

When I had the idea for my new boho bracelets, this is exactly what I pictured. Actually it turned out better than what I had pictured.

This is the style I personally love! It’s the direction I want to take my shop in, even if it may be a little more expensive to do so, it’s what I enjoy and you can’t make something and put your heart & soul into it if you don’t truly enjoy what you’re doing. I hope everyone enjoys the new look as much as I do! Although they’re still in the testing stage, they’ll be listed on my website and in my etsy shop very soon so stay tuned!

My dreams are in Florida.. for now!

A few months ago I was contacted by a girl on LinkedIn. Her name was Melinda Tomasello  and she wanted to know if she could do a few shots of my jewelry. At first I questioned it a little bit, because these days you just never know with people. I didn’t want to be too trusting but I had a good feeling about her,  so after tossing around the idea for a few days I finally checked out her info and all of her work. After looking at her work, I had an even better feeling! So, I got back to her and told her I’d give it a shot.

I am so glad I did. Firstly, she’s a wonderful person and someone that I would definitely love to meet in person one day. So, Melinda, if I get to come to Florida again, I’ll definitely be visiting! 🙂 Secondly, she’s very, very talented and driven. She did an absolutely wonderful job with the photos and I couldn’t be happier!

It’s amazing when you see a piece you’ve created, whether it’s artwork, jewelry, a craft, etc. and then have someone else put their spin on it. She captured my pieces exactly how I hoped she would, especially with the dream bracelet and the guitar. My jewelry has always given me a calm, relaxed feel when I’m creating it and that’s what I would like to be portrayed to people when they see it. Let’s just say, I think she nailed it!

Here are the photos from Melinda:
