Crazy May!

Things have been crazy. Like, crazier than usual. So crazy that it's been 2 weeks since I last posted despite my efforts to try to make a blog post every week. So here's what's been going on... 
Love this shirt, spotted at the lake!
I started another blog! It's called Burlington Boho and I plan for it to be a collaboration with so many of the amazing women here. "Featuring our love of all things Bohemian in BTV: Fashion, food, live music, yoga, art, the green mountains surrounding us, the large lake beside us and all the cool stuff in between." Check it out on Tumblr, and follow us on Instagram and Facebook. :) 

It's always hard getting back into the swing of Artist Market season, which started last Saturday. I was a busy worker bee leading up to it and managed to have a ton of work ready. It was a great first Market and so good to see everyone again! 
Brianne, happy in her new earrings and necklace!
I have a similar schedule to last year, averaging 2 markets a month but it's really more like this for the summer:
May 23
June 13
Every Saturday in July! 
No Saturdays in August (I'll be getting ready for, going to and recovering from NYNOW.)
It's all subject to change but I think that's how it will shake out.

I'm working on store orders, sent this one out to The Shoe Horn a couple of weeks ago and I'm working on 2 more...
I'm working on the Kickstarter rewards and that's a whole beast in itself but I love working on this collection. 

I'm preparing to move into my new studio, can't wait. There's so little space for me to even move around in my current home studio so it will be amazing to have more space! And, I'm planning my studio opening party! 

I've been making some new designs, like these Mixed Metal Circle and Feather earrings (5 pairs have sold this week!). After a bit of a lull, Etsy has been rockin' this month. 

So that's what's been keepin' me busy. Hope everyone is having a wonderful spring and enjoying all the sunshine, flowers and outdoor livin'. xo

Modern Relics 2015 - Hit My Kickstarter Goal!!!

So happy to have reached my goal on Kickstarter! Thank you all so much for your support - just 40 hours to go! I'm going to use additional funds toward advertising for the show and at the show, excited to be able to do that! 
Mother's day is Sunday... If you'd like to pick out a piece for your sweet mama or wife, I'm happy to send them a special gift card in time, with your personal message, letting them know they'll be receiving a new piece of jewelry next month and before it's available in shops. Just let me know!
Here's the gorgeous Molly modeling what will soon be her new Mixed Texture Circle necklace, goes great with her Sweet Lady Jane earrings
Took a nice little bike ride last week and came upon this moment of zen.
 That night I ran back out to get these gorgeous sunset and moon photos! 
On Friday I helped Nicole open her AMAZING new shop in Winooski called Birdfolk. What a great time! 
Fun to see my work on display there! 
So great to get that email last Friday night! Thank you all so SO much! Getting this email was a wonderful way to kick off the weekend. 

To those who've pledged, a survey will be sent out when the project ends that will allow you to select your piece(s). I've already contacted many local backers for their answers, I hope to have those pieces ready in time for pick up at my studio opening in early June. Above is a photo of the two most popular rewards so far - the Brass Riveted Relic and the Carved Silver Moon. Thank you again, so much, to those who've backed my project and spread the word! I can't wait to get the rewards out!
