New fringe and arm candy


 This beautiful brass fringe necklace was a custom order based off of my Modern Brass Fringe Necklace, but with more oomph and more volume. This has definitely been one of my most favorite pieces to make however, not the easiest. Each brass piece was handcut, hammered and textured, drilled, and linked to the chain to create a beautiful silhouette.

While I was in Montebello, I created a couple of arm candies which will be posted on my Etsy once I finalize the pictures.



 I am also excited to announce that I've made a "mini" version of my very popular Brass Chevron Geometric Necklace with Hematite Beads.

The "mini is simple, yet modern and is a perfect accessory for the summer. Check it out here because it is now live in my shop.

Never sleeping but always dreaming.

I have so many things to add to my Etsy shop, but I have been away from my little studio this whole week. I have tons of pictures to take, and lots of updating to do as soon as I get home tomorrow. 

I feel like there are so many ideas in my head and I find design inspiration from the simplest things like the textures of the rocks by the shore when I'm jogging along the water. Even the color changes in the sky at sunset gets me really excited and I can't wait to try out some watercolor for a new painting on my wall. 

Meanwhile, here's a preview of what you will see~


Tomorrow will be my last day in Montebello, and although I had a great time fishing, running through the forest, attending back to back meetings, and staring at the boats in the lake, I cannot wait to get back to the city and eat some Korean/Chinese fusion. This hotel has amazing food, but I need me some real bibimbap and some dim sum man...




Bye bye Quebec. I'm ready to go home now.
Stay tuned!!!

Montebello

Currently in beautiful Montebello, Quebec for a work conference for a few days. 
But do not fret, I've brought my essentials with me...





Do you know how difficult it is to balance a tray of jump rings on your lap, with pliers in each hands, while holding on to dear life during an extremely turbulent 5 hour car ride? My coworker is wild man behind the wheel...In fact, one of my bracelets had gone missing after an extremely sharp left turn, and after a few hours of searching all over the nooks and crannies of the car, we found it inside his Tim Horton's Ice Cap -_-

I managed to set up shop in my cozy hotel but other than my jewelry, there are tons of other things to work on, including presentations for the conference, presentations for next week in the US, finding ANY hair elastics, and preparing for a full afternoon of fishing in the rain tomorrow. 

Time for some zzzZZZZzzz.

Pablo + weekend





Happy Father's Day dads!

While on duty...




My work trip to Winnipeg consisted of sweaty hardhats, safety goggles sliding down my nose, stuffy heated manufacturing plants that does NOT smell good and very dirty steel toed shoes. However at the end of the day, we were greeted with a beautiful rainbow and a nice cold beer. Hanging in there until Saturday night!

Meanwhile, here are some treasures that I will be bringing back from Winnipeg which is apparently one of the cities with the highest crime rates...*shudder*

Guthrie the Cubebot has muscles and a unibrow so don't mess with him. He comes in a teeny cube box and unravels itself into this wonderful man:
A very cute necklace from a shop in Osbourne Village at 50% off!
You would think this is eatable( I did!) but it's not butI love macarons~~~ I could hide perhaps a tooney in there.
Tomorrow, it's back to the grind. I miss Toronto already~
