The Westfalls

I recently spent a few days with my best friend, Valerie, in Arizona. We went camping & hiking with our guys and got to spend some real quality time together. Just us and the outdoors. Perfection.

Valerie and her husband Daniel have the kind of relationship that makes you want to be a better person. They're so considerate and loving to each other and when they take a moment to look in each other's eyes you might as well not even be there. That moment with each other is all that matters.

Their dedication to each other runs so deep that they got matching tattoo wedding bands. This inspired me to recreate the one on Valerie's hand. I sawed the design into a Sterling Silver disc, hammered, oxidized, and polished it. I added a Bali Silver bail and oxidized chain.

We're lucky girls, we have good men in our lives, amazing families, and we have each other.

Even though we're 2000 miles apart it doesn't matter. Every time we see each other it's like we didn't miss one day. Thanks for the inspiration my love...xoxo.

New Tools!

I just got my new lowercase Kismet letter stamps! So excited to start using them. Thank you to Marina of LoveStruckMetals for hooking me up with a great deal on the stamps and for answering all my lame newbie questions. Such a cool lady and a great inspiration! Check out her amazing personalized jewelry in her Etsy shop...

I'm off to fill up a Beaducation cart and lust after some other new tools on my list...

The First

I've never had a blog before so I hope I don't bore everyone to death.

I'm just getting started with my jewelry line. Trying new designs, working with new tools and in new mediums. My plan is to post pictures, videos, how-to's, etc... And I'm sure my dogs will end up being mentioned every so often (they've already made it into the first post!).
