Feeling blessed to have had the unexpected opportunity to make a one-of-a-kind custom sterling silver bolo tie for @kris10mazz before her very special trip east this week. Making this reminded me that the thrill/hum of creating is still alive and well within me despite taking an extended hiatus from metalworking to attend radiology school. My soul sang loudly while making this the other night and I thought I'd share some insight into its birth from start to finish. Swipe

From last year, when Franny & Metal was featured by my talented and dear friend Paula of @___sisterwolf___ studio . What an incredible honor to work with this soul's keen eye- keep watch for the wonderful work she's putting out into the universe!

Et voilà! A couple hours later, my first bolo tie pendant. Still needs fine finishing and a black leather cord and tips, but I'm stoked to add finally add a bolo tie to my necklace rotation! Treat yo self.
Swipe for the before picture from earlier today.

Back at it! This is the first time in months sitting at my bench for any extended amount of time. How dearly I've missed this feeling. I had no particular plans in mind to begin with and I'm very much liking how where my intuition is guiding me. More updates to come! •

Sending out Christmas orders! 🎄❄☃️I haven't made a Fossa Collar in a while and was delighted to see it in the lineup. 💍⛏. This one in sterling silver is headed to Canada.

Loving the look of the Ossis Collection rings in silver on stunning Jazmine's hand! Such a fun shoot last spring. Photo by Austin's lovely @creativecontacthigh.

Today's the day! I could barely wait to release my video collaboration with Austin's @___sisterwolf___ studio! Paula Wolf's keen eye and profound gift for visual storytelling was a joy and honor to witness.

So excited to show you all a first peek of the new Franny & Metal Fall collection 👐! Catch me designing behind the scenes in an exciting video collaboration that'll be released later this week. Check back soon!

Phew! I'm not gonna lie, it's been a long while since I've shown you all some social media love. BUT. In between moving and preparing to return back to school in the fall, I've had some neat projects in the works this summer 🤗. I'm extremely excited to share with you a snippet of a dream collaboration I've so been lucky to be a part of. Stay tuned...

I had the greatest pleasure of working with Austin's very own @___sisterwolf___ studio a few weeks back before packing up and moving my workspace to its new home. This shot of the Soma Ring dancing in the reeds is a sneak peek of much more to come from the ultra-talented Sisterwolf Studio... ✨🤗

More Marfa magic.
