Walentynkada: Grace from Ethiopia

Here is a little belated post about March's walentynkada. Sorry for the delay, but my work horse (Macbook Pro) decided to give out and needed a new logic board. Anyhow, I am truly looking forward to sharing this special piece with you all.       


Nikki of Oliverblue Photography contacted me about making a custom design necklace for her. She wanted to send a gift with some of her friends that were heading to Ethiopia to a sweet little boy named Grace that she had met on her mission travels.

Grace had sent her a letter a few months ago and had ended the sweet note with "always remember to let your light shine." She wanted to include part of this lovely message on the custom piece.


She decided on a personalized necklace for Grace. I told Nikki about my walentynkada project and told her that I would love to have this piece be a part it.


 I loved hearing the story behind how special this little boy was to her, that she loved him like he was one of her own children. 
What a special bond these to share separated by so many miles!

Thank you Nikki for letting me be a part of this sweet surprise!

Is it a scarf? Is it a necklace?

What do you think..... is it a scarf? Is it a necklace?

Is it a scarf? Is it a necklace?

Well the neck piece is a mix between a scarf and necklace so let's just call it a scarflace for now. Each of my scarflaces will be one-of-a-kind and truly fun. It's a perfect little accessory that can be worn year round.

Happy Father's Day!!!

Being a parent is definitely no easy task and it seems like there definitely is no manual for it. I am grateful for such a great dad, who has taught me not to be afraid of doing things on my own. So in honor of father's day, here is a picture of my dad and I when my family lived in a refugee camp in Rome, Italy circa 1986.

Happy Father's Day!

I also wanted to share with you a sneak peek of a custom leather cuff bracelet that a wife had contacted me to design for her husband. They are expecting their first child on June 20th, 2011. They have already picked out his name, but haven't told anyone what it is. Shhhh.... don't tell anyone. HAHA. I can't wait to share with you what is written on the inside of the bracelet and the meaning behind it all. Congratulations to them both on this lovely new adventure in their life!

custom leather cuff...

Wishing all the fathers and fathers-to-be a Happy Father's Day!!!

PS. I would love to ask you all.... what is something your dad taught you?
