A Big Thank You + A Link Round-Up


A million thank yous to all of you folks, blogs, magazines, publications and more who have supported my jewelry business and everything else I have juggled over the past year.  I stopped nannying less than a year ago to pursue art full time and, with your support, I have been able to continue on and succeed thus far in my journey as a self employed artist!  I so deeply appreciate those of you who have supported my jewelry shop and have purchased pretty things for yourselves and those you love over the past year, those of you who have wanted to work with me on redesigning your blog through Freckled Nest, those of you who have employed me as a freelance illustrator/designer, and those who have wanted me to illustrate portraits for you.  I truly love my work and I really do throw my all into everything I do.  But no matter how hard I work, I wouldn't be where I am at if it weren't for the support of you friends out there.  Thank you a million times over.

I'd love to highlight some recent customers & friends who have taken photos of their new jewelry I designed:
Laura is such a supportive and encouraging friend.  Plus I love how she styles my jewelry.  Perfection.

Mervi is such a sweetheart.  The perfect shimmering smile paired with the sparkling amethyst ring and necklace.

I just got to meet Savannah this past Sunday when she visited Seattle!  So honored that she purchased these earrings when she found me at the Fremont market.

Amy is super duper rad.  I'm so excited that she is now working for one of my favorite companies, Blowfish Shoes.  She is a funky retro champion and I love how she rocks my chevron earrings.

Thank you to Laura, Mervi, Savannah, Amy, Diana, Kelly Ann, Liz, Tabatha, & Shelley for your support of my jewelry shop!  It's always so incredibly encouraging for me to see photos of my customers happy with the jewelry I've made.

Yes, i love your bracelets. I wear them everyday since i've arrived.

I always thought i could never wear cute longer earrings because of my thick frames, but i'm seriously rethinking it after seeing Amy's earrings. Hmmmm...
