We explored the island on the lake we live on today🌲🌲 It was so peaceful, with a beautiful little trail winding through the brush. The rock fire-pit overlooking the lake was my favorite, though! Definitely something I'll have to kayak to one of these days πŸ–€ ..this place I call home can be secluding at times, but oh how these surroundings inspire me! #naturejewelry #inspirationfromnature #woodsylife

Current wip! It says "stardust in my soul" 🌌 Super excited about the galaxy/planetary theme on the front πŸ’«..My hubs is on his way to get some more butane from the lil mom & pop store up the road! Hopefully they have some so I can finish this baby soon. That's life in the middle of the woods for ya! I really need to learn to stay on top of my suppliesπŸ™ˆ #galactictheme #planetaryjewelry #riojeweler

Another rainy day here πŸ–€.. which means lots & lots of candlyland, chutes & ladders, & hiho cherry-O! I ran outta butane last night & I'm dyinggg to finish my current silver piece.. it has a stardust/galaxy theme that I'm just loving! #flannelforever #lifeasaredhead #imalwaysinfallmode

Signs of fall! Yes please πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ‚πŸ also, I really want to be one of those people who call fall, 'autumn' - I'll put that on my list of things to do haha. I'm working on one of the druzy agates that I posted about yesterday! I guess I should say, I'm working on it when I can get my little wild children to nap πŸ™ˆ #signsoffall #creativelifestyle #inspirationfromnature

I've had these two stashed away for months! Coming up with some designs for setting them in sterling silver πŸ’™βœ¨ #galaxystones #druzyisagirlsbestfriend #statementjewelry

"When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time, I rest in the grace of the world, and am free." My favorite poem. By Wendell Berry. 🌲Check one post back for the sterling silver piece I made, inspired by this poem. Photo is at the end of my driveway πŸ’™πŸŒ²πŸ’™ #etsyjeweler #beginnersilversmith #metalsmithing #poeticphoto

Finally finished my second ever sterling silver piece! At what point can I call myself a smith πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ really though, I poured a ton of time + energy into creating this. I learned so much while working on it as well! I'm loving working with this new medium, it combines my love of drawing with my love of artistic jewelry/stones! My favorite part is using my handsaw to cut out the intricate little piecesπŸ™ŒπŸΌ I added my spinoff of a quote to the back, from my favorite poem, The Peace of Wild Things (swipe to see). So many ideas swirling around this noggin of mine for more pieces πŸ€— #beginnersilversmithing #metalsmithing #beginnersilversmith #etsyjeweler

Throwback pic! We had an impromptu road trip today & when I'm at home I've been spending every spare second on silversmithing- just trying to learn as much as I can πŸ˜ƒ ..so a throwback pic to my quartz point rings is all I've got for now πŸ€— also, today is the last day to save 17% on purchases of $35 or more in my shop with code ONEYEAR ..get it before it's gone! πŸ’œ #silversmithing #metalsmithing #beginnersilversmithing

I wanted to share another shot of my first silver piece--the backside πŸ˜„ it's not perfect, but I'm so happy with it! In other news, I threw my back out this morning and I honestly feel like I'm too young for this πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ this pain has gotta go. I'm hoping to get back to my bench sometime today, I have a sterling and labradorite piece I'm working on that I'm super excited about! πŸ–€ P.S. don't forget about the coupon code ONEYEAR for 17% off your purchase of $35 or more in the shop! #tooyoungforthisnonsense #ormaybenot #forthebirds -

Three of my favorites-- lake+kayak+Luna. Hoping to squeeze in some time for kayaking this week in between being momma and making jewelry πŸ–€ it's one of the activities I do that inspires me the most 🌲🌲 #woodsy #forestdweller #lifeinthewoods -
