Another find on my walk... I loved the symmetry...white picket fence, two rocking chairs...it should evoke an ideal but ....something's missing. No life here...#photographyday #picketfence #blackandwhitephoto
Squash silliness... was on a walk and found this guy....
I'm having so much fun with #metalstamps and creating these #cottagestylejewelry scenes on my metalwork. I just purchased another 8 botanically-inspired stamps this morning on etsy... getting geared up for spring already!
Some new little ear buds....#postearrings #sterlingsilver #metalstamp #metalstamping #handmadewithlove #handmadeisbetter
A wee bit of whimsy....#everyday #earrings #whimsicalart #sterlingsilver
Five new #sterlingsilver #necklace designs I'll be adding to my #cottagestyle #jewelry collection! Ok, new hashtag #cottagestylejewelry ! I just checked, and it truly is the first post on IG with that hash tag.
I just took off the patina and these haven't been polished yet...but I really like the combination of these three elements that I use ALL the time. The stirrup and pins are a great way to make a design #kinetic and these move in an elegant way. Long day today... added a new account this weekend and had to add 20 pieces on top of my work load. But I'm really grateful for the opportunity! #earrings #tribevibe
#duckcloth is the best!
Working out some show display options ....hmmmmm....💡
This is one of my favorite studio tools... I use it everyday!! A metal shear allows for precise cutting and saves on scrap! Hope you love yours Leslie !! 😘
Last one for the day...I bought this strand of #turqoiuse from a woman that owned a bead shop here in #roanoke when we first moved here. And a few months later she closed it. She had incredible taste... if I would have had the money I would have bought as much inventory that she had...but i got a nice stash of these beads. #handmadewithlove #stacieflorerjewelry
I watched a squirrel 'hide' this walnut in my almost dead butterfly bush...If you want to understand Gaia, you have learn to think in terms of nonlinear, circular logic of feedback systems. Timothy Lenton I admit... I'm flummoxed. #backyardigans
For those of you that own some of my work, here is a quick demo on how to take off the tarnish. It's best to store oxidized silver jewelry in a plastic baggies when not wearing! #howtoclean #jewelry #handmadejewelry #stacieflorerjewely
I'm going to start brewing my own #kombucha next week and I just received my #handmade #kombuchacrock #crockery from @marianheintzpottery this morning! I've known this artist#potter for 10 years from my days in #chattanooga and her work is exceptional! I don't want to have to worry about the possibility of lead in my brew pot, plus look how beautiful this crock is!!! Marian was instrumental in my development as an artist when we lived in Chattanooga, giving me, along with some other newbies access to her studio to learn how to set stones. Go see her IG stream for more goodies and check out her website! She's an amazing and kind person to boot! #supportlocal #artistsoninstagram #fermentedfoods # fermentedtea
A bit of a new direction... when I don't want to sell them I know I'm on to something creatively! The limitation I'm exploring is connections without soldering. Mostly because I ran out of pickle! But... this limitation is a good reason to stretch a bit. Excited to see where it goes this week! #creativity #sacredwork #metalstamp #metalstamping
