I just finished adding the last piece to my last shop update for a few weeks!
.
.
I am almost caught up on all the pre-orders that came in and then I have a few patterns to finish up, so the "break" is needed. I have loads more ideas for more jewelry, but until then you should scroll through and see what I added! (I could only show 10 pieces, but I promise there are a few more)

#honestcraftroom / after market organizing! It was @iamlunasol 's idea to share the photos I was sending via text.
.
.
I finally hung the SIX @wallcontrol pegboards I ordered after seeing @modernhandcraft 's amazing ones. I added a bunch of clipboards underneath to keep track of all my freelance projects and shop pre-orders.
.
.
I'm trying to find somewhere to put all the awesome stuff I brought home, but it's not happening. I have officially run out of room. I guess I should just sew faster? I guess I should also uncover my machines... #artschooldropouthousetour

I was driving Coraline and I to lunch today and this @brandnewrock song came on. It made me think of all the memories attached to this song, and then how much I love that I use music to remember things. I can turn any song on and usually a good memory comes to mind.
.
.
This song was attached to all the times I saw them in some random tiny bar with different friends. I remember singing along with my old friend Jesse to this exact song at numerous shows up and down the east coast. He was always up for driving to a show or three. I remember taking @sammielou__ to see them, and then all the other shows we went to. I saw Brandnew a lot, so there's more, I won't go on. .
.
Anyway, it also made me remember this pillow and how much I love it. I really wanted to share it again. My energy levels are super low this week and I needed the good thoughts. ❀❀#sizzix

Our neighborhood pool opened today, which means you'll be seeing a lot more poolside sewing soon. 😍
I need to start prepping projects!!

Are you guys tired of seeing this design yet? I'm not, and I'm the one continually assembling them. πŸ˜‰
.
.
I just added this design and the neon pink one to the shop! I will be added the subtle/smaller version over the weekend. It's been crazy behind the scenes here with life, girls scouts and everything, so I'm a teeny tiny bit behind. #artschooldropoutjewelry #jesseeismakingjewelryagain

My awesome #fiercequilterpin arrived from @eyecandyquilts and I absolutely adore it! How awesome does it look pinned on the new @carolynfriedlander Blake jersey knit?!? I guess that's where it will live once I whip together a nice #rumitank. ❀❀❀ #eyecandyquilts #quiltpin #enamelpin #carolynfriedlander #blakefabric

I bought around two dozen sheets of acrylic from different suppliers and brands to test out . This was the view after I was halfway through the pile and ready for lunch. πŸ‘
.
.
I found I do not like cutting or dealing with mirrored acrylic, but I do love mixing and matching all the vibrant solid acrylics. It's all so 80's! I also tried out some frosted sea foam acrylic and pearlescent white acrylic that will be showing up in the shop soon. .
.
It is a weird change going from mixing my own pigments and plastics to cutting out all the same things over and over. Way less photo editing involved πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I did order some new speciality casting pigments for an upcoming project I'm excited about, it's been hard keeping it quiet, but I promise it's super cool. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

If you could have any color combo for these Scattered Hexie Necklaces, what would it be? #artschooldropoutgoods #artschooldropoutjewelry #jesseeismakingjewelryagain

My dear friend @fabrichick asked what the neon pink Scattered Hexies Necklace would look like assembled. So I made her a video. 😘
.
.
I also took a short video of the Trio of Hexies Necklace that's coming to the shop soon. I seemed to have lost my laptops power cord at the makerspace, so no shop updates until I figure that all out. πŸ˜‚ Keep an eye out for the newsletter or a mention here when they will be available. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

P.S.: It's hard to video tape the smaller Necklace because it swings all over the place. Im not shaking it, its wild all on its own. #artschooldropoutjewelry #jesseeismakingjewelryagain #hexienecklace #neonpink

Like I said earlier this week, I did not have many of my own designs at market. I actually think it was the least amount since I started this journey. That has a lot to do with my new schedule and the fact that I just wasn't ready to put new designs out in to the world. .
.
Instead, this Market I helped other people make their designs a reality. It's just as fulfilling in my book. The quilt on the wall here was a digital mockup @robertkaufman sent me that I deconstructed, then pieced and quilted. It uses licensed Claude Monet designs that are absolutely stunning on fabric. I won't lie, It felt super surreal sewing a Monet quilt. .
.
I got to keep all the extra fabric, which means you'll be seeing more of it pretty soon. Think pastels mixed with my normal motif. πŸ˜‰ #monet #robertkaufmanfabrics #robertkaufman #monetfabric #quiltmarket #quiltmarket2017 #quiltmarketstlouis

I cut out a lot of necklace and earring pieces at the #makersmiths today. This is just a small sampling. I have plans to assemble the rest of the pre-order necklaces tomorrow and maybe get photos of the new pieces as well. .
.
I also took my second Fusion 360 class and we designed a 1/12 scale chair meant for a dollhouse. I loved it! I kind of want to make an entire house worth. πŸ€”
.
.
There was also a video chat "meeting"/brainstorming and then a real life meeting stuck in there as well. It all makes me feel oddly accomplished! πŸ‘β˜ΊοΈ#artschooldropoutgoods #artschooldropoutjewelry #jesseeismakingjewelryagain .

P.S.: you can see more in my IG stories!

I didn't have many original pieces at market this year, it just wasn't in the cards. I did have this mini quilt I designed and made for @the_tattooed_quilter 'a booth using @rileyblakedesigns solids that coordinate with his new line Blue Carolina. I made it doing what I call improv paper piecing (I imagine there's already a different name for it). My new favorite thing to do. .
.
It's as if I forgot how to add binding, I'm a little embarrassed by how it came out, so I'm only sharing the top itself. I also regret the dark thread for quilting the middle piece. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ #jesseemakesquiltsnow

I had to order more supplies to finish up all of the extra necklace orders that came in, which means I also had to wait to test out the wooden pieces. .
.
This is a the Scattered Hexies necklace in walnut that hasn't been sanded and sealed yet. I was that eager to see it all put together. .
.
These supplies came in while I was away along with several new fancy acrylics, so keep an eye out for some sharing in the IG stories this week. πŸ˜‰#artschooldropoutgoods #artschooldropoutjewelry ##jesseeusetomakejewelry #jesseeismakingjewelryagain #hexienecklace #hexagon #hexagonnecklace #walnutnecklace #woodnecklace #makersmiths
