I caved and bought a big ugly blue pool because I love my daughter and want her to have a good summer. So far she’s loving it. #summertime #poolfloat #pool #summervibes #unicornfloat #chillen #lazydays #shessotan

Sometimes staring at a castle on its own private island from the edge of a rock cliff overlooking a river will help you find peace and quiet your mind...

Nothing like a freshly picked bouquet of lilacs #smellslikeheaven #farmsink #lilacs #abmlifeisbeautiful

I’m going through old stock from my Poison Apple NYC days. That’s what my jewelry line was called way back when I first started making and selling jewelry on the internet circa 2003. It’s 15 years later and I’m here staring at like 100 brass Arabic swords that I don’t know what to do with... #brassswords #jewelrymaking #vintagebrass #iheartorganizing #hoarding

I scored this little praying/meditating person today at a garage sale. Something about it called to me.

Sure Liam, make yourself at home on the freshly made bed and feel free to leave your black fur everywhere. #catstyle #catnap #bohobedroom #abmhappylife #sodomino #interiordesign #bedroomdecor #freshlymadebed #modernboho #sundayvibes #minimalistbedroom #bedroomgoals #springcleaning

Mia is currently sorting all her rocks and minerals by color. That’s definitely something I used to do as a kid as well. #minime #crystals #minerals #rocks #healingcrystals #targetstyle #abmlifeiscolorful

We stood in front of a window and she took her glasses off because of the glare and oh my god, her eyes are so beautiful. She definitely gets those from @juanlmojicajr #tenyearsold #mysidekick #mamaanddaughter

I’m organizing my office and found this pile of unfinished jewelry from 2 years ago. That’s how long it’s been since I’ve actually made anything new. I got wrapped up in my full time job and a couple of passive income pursuits over the last two years and I’m looking at these pieces and feeling kind of sad, like I forgot who I am or something. I think it got to a point where I started taking my jewelry making too seriously and I was trying too many wholesale routes of selling and stuff just got out of hand and I felt like I needed to just take a break because I was no longer enjoying what I was doing. I still want to create but I now know that I hate wholesale and don’t enjoy making large quantities of any one thing. I’m more of a one of a kind/limited quantity type of artist. So going forward I’m just making jewelry in my spare time for fun and listing it in one spot (my website) and when it sells it’s sold out. No wholesaling or consigning. No bullshit to stress me out. Just me and my website and maybe a local craft fair now and again. I want to enjoy creating again. And this is how to make it enjoyable. End rant. #handmadejewelry #artistproblems #creativedroughtover #jonellemairajewelry
