Ahead of the Trend
Being able to create something unique or even something ahead of the trend is very difficult, but I have found that color and texture are some of the most important details to my designs. I recently designed a new style of bracelet that I originally thought I would use for earrings, but after failing miserably
Wine Women and Shoes
After my short stop in LA I continued on the tiniest plane to the tiniest airport in San Louis Obispo where I took an Uber to Atascadero, CA. While visiting this beautiful place I worked an event called Wine, Women, and Shoes and at this event I sold II Embers jewelry and purses. This event series has generated more than $40, 000,000 to nonprofits across the country and we happen to be a national sponsor which means we give 20% of our sales to the specific nonprofit that is featured at each show we attend.
La La Land
First off, please forgive my appearance! My friend, Mary, looks adorable as usual, but I woke up at 5:30 am to catch a flight and traveling gets the best of me. I have not been out to visit Mary since she moved to LA four years ago, so a short stop on my way to an event was the perfect excuse to finally make it happen! I flew in for a few hours and was able to grab lunch before heading back to the airport to fly on to my next destination. Santa Monica is a short distance from LAX, so that is where we dined.
Huntin’, fishin’, and lovin’ every day
Over Labor Day weekend I went to Rivers West Ranch which Jack’s family owns, and this place is incredible! I have been going to this ranch since I was in high school, yet so many things have changed. This place has now become a wedding venue, retreat, and a hunters dream, and when I go, I like to let my inner country girl run wild. Labor day weekend is the opening for dove season, so that was the key part of our trip.
Huntin', fishin', and lovin' every day
Am I next?
I am at that age now where weddings/engagement celebrations are a constant in my life and with that I am always buying dresses, picking out II Embers bracelets, and dancing the night away with my main squeeze. Many of the weddings I have attended happened to be at The Mayo in downtown Tulsa which is an amazing venue that I highly recommend. Lucy, my boyfriend’s mother finally married her now husband after 14 years of dating and it was one of the most joyous celebrations I have even attended in my short life.
Am I next?
Feeling the glee
I started II Embers with the idea that I would focus on bracelets, but when my best friend, Katie, asked me to design earrings for her wedding I thought “Why not?!” I sat down at my workstation and starting brainstorming and I came up with three ideas that worked perfectly.
