Take a trip but love where you're at

This week's Listening-Wearing-Making! Inspired by the romance of just hoping in the car and taking an impromptu road trip, and then getting back to realize you really love right where you are. Here. Now. I'd listen to this if I jumped in the car today (and I'd probably head to Big Sur). . . 

Wearing - 

I thought I'd share my outfit from Easter Sunday this week. I really enjoy dressing up for special occasions when I can. When I was in my teens and on into my mid-twenties I spent a lot of time and energy on my outfits almost everyday. Now, with a business to run and a family that I want to devote time to I find myself erring towards simpler, comfort based outfits most days. It makes those days when I do have the time and energy to put on something special feel that much more special!

I'm wearing: Tangleweeds "Dance" earrings, a necklace that was a gift from Jeff a few years ago (handmade by an old friend of his), a dress from Savers (a new-ish thrift shop in Berkeley) and flats from Urban Outfitters. 

Making: I've been very inspired lately, working on new designs and with new stones. I've been thumbing through old sketches of mine and looking through this book: Fabulous Woven Jewelry. I'm very excited to start making more one-of-a-kind, or limited edition pieces. I won't abandon my classic designs that so many of your love, rather they will be augmented by the one-of-a-kind pieces. Here's a look at what's coming up:

Lastly, don't forget to enter my April Giveaway. I'm offering up a pair of my tailfeathers earrings this time around. Tell your friends! I'll announce the winner on the 30th of April.
