As usual time is flying by and I'm thinking 'Holy moly! Slow down! I've still got so much to do!' But as usual, I try and remind myself of how much I've already accomplished. This last month I've managed to get a new collection together, start the process of wedding planning, and gathered the courage to tell my boss I'm leaving in January to pursue a long-time dream of mine (more on that later).

So yeah, I've been busy! But let's focus on the fun stuff...You're probably already up to date on the progress of my new collection if you follow me on Instagram. And like I mentioned in a previous post, this collection has been somewhat of a divergent from my usual minimalistic approach. But holy moly am I loving it! It's been so refreshing to look down at my bench and see these new pieces. I can't wait to share them with you in all their glory. In the meantime, here's a glimpse into their progress.

Prototypes from a Photosilver machine. There are different machines that use different prototyping material. Certain material is better used for certain designs. Isn't jewelry making cool?!

The new collection will be released in October just in time for the holiday season. Stay tuned on an exact date...still a few more things to do before the release! If you're local and want to see them in person, I'll be selling at a few holiday shows. Check out my News & Events tab for more info and come visit me!
