Chelsey Alyse  Metalsmithing, watercoloring, remodeling our home, pursuing God, and raising our baby, Felicity Kate, in East TX with my techy, wood-working husband.

So what if she’s 16 months old in this picture? I probably won’t remember that detail in 20 years and it’ll look like I snagged the best pics of every month, chronicled in stylish detail for her to cherish forever. 💁🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

Taken yesterday, at 39 weeks and 1 day pregnant, holding my baby who I know is about to look even more gigantic. But right now, we snuggle ALL the time and she doesn’t seem to know that the belly she’s climbed and perched on the last several months is about to turn into a baby brother. She’s sorted through his clothes and scattered them throughout the house. She’s kissed the belly and learned the word “gentle” and I can hardly believe my baby, my first baby, is a big sister. I don’t think you’re ever supposed to feel “ready” to meet your new baby, but I know we’re all excited to get to know our boy so very soon!

Sitting here in my warm jammies on my pink sofa wondering how long Felicity will let me nap today! Thought I’d post a favorite custom order and then turn my phone off and get some sleep after a long long loonnnng week of baby teething (and not napping) and working on the business side of metalsmithing and cleaning the house (part of it) and OMG TGIF! Also if anyone wants to come clean my house and cook me dinner I’ll pay you in jewelry, mmkay?

I just can’t get enough of these people, or these pictures! I have been told since day one to savor these days with Felicity, because “they just grow up so fast,” and I can promise you that I do, I do, I do! Daily I tell Colby something along the lines of “I can’t believe we get to have her,” while my heart feels like it’s jumping out of me because she’s the tiniest pixie baby to ever grace the earth with her perfectly squishy, curly-headed self! Sometimes when they play or read books together my eyes fill with happy tears because the sweetness is just too much. Anyone else feel the almost constant need to kiss their baby’s cheeks?!? ❤️❤️❤️

I made a dear new friend at The Market last weekend, and we bartered one of her gorgeous floral paintings for a golden pearl ring - can’t wait to finish another one of these dainty stack rings! When I clean my kitchen I’ll show you where I put my pretty new painting 😉✨💕

Another dose of Christmas cheer, courtesy of @chloebeephotos! I’m so grateful for my people. I’m so grateful I can work from home, at my own pace. I’m so grateful that @gap runs awesome sales on baby clothes, and I am so grateful for plaid! 🙌❤️ I have done a lot of “recovering” from the weekend (I was in an awesome handmade market before which I had 3.5 hours of sleep, sprained my ankle, then hosted some little siblings for a few days and we had alllll the fun making s’mores and Christmas garlands and ohmygoodness when did having fun become so much work?! Parenting. That’s when. Anyway, if you’re waiting to hear about an order, I will be sending out invoices and arranging local pickups early next week. Thank you for your patience!

Okay, can we just talk about this adorable planter I scored at the @cccsale’s Market event last weekend? @fivethreenineplanters makes the cutest sweetest things! I will enjoy using this to display my jewelry, and fingers crossed I can keep the succulent thriving (yes, I do know I need soil for it, and it’s on my list!) 🤞🏻🌿💕 OH AND, rose gold and pearls - can’t get much sweeter than that. I ordered more pearls so I can stock up on these dainty babies and add them to the shop asap. 💜

I will forever and ever be mesmerized by these gorgeous pictures taken by my very own sister, @chloebeephotos! Look at babylove’s beautiful pouty lips! Word has it that she’s still doing mini sessions, so east TX friends should contact her to schedule your Christmas photos!

So apparently lava beads really DO make great essential oil diffusers. Put a single drop of lavender on my necklace two days ago and it’s still fragrant. I even worked calmly through my baby fussing at me, which usually makes my nerves fire erratically and I can’t think straight. So, yay for lavender and lava! These will be for sale @cccsale’s Holiday Market event on Saturday! They’re on rose gold-fill chain, 16” or 18”. Message me for pre-orders. 💕

I simply cannot WAIT until Saturday! I’ll have a booth, along with almost 100 other makers, in Tyler’s Harvey Convention Center. Felicity and I have been blasting Christmas music and working in my shop all week to bring you lots of handmade goodies to choose from. As for these custom bar necklaces, I will be taking orders for Christmas delivery. 💕

Long live vintage, long live rainbow sparkles! I have had a penchant for old things for as long as I can remember. I also hoard shiny trinkets, and have loved using my stash of antique Swarovski crystals in these chandelier earrings. Get yours in sterling or rose gold, link in bio 💕
