i have been talking of it for a while now…and it is finally all finished!!!!! i powered through yesterday like a champ, and when it was finally finished , i will be honest, i felt a little sad. like now what? this was so much fun to shoot with my friends, edit, put together,obsess over, and watch it work out so beautifully.

i tend to overanalyze most things in my life, except when i am creating. i realized this last night. it seems the process is the one time i don’t look to far ahead, or stress out, or generally even think about the outcome. i just let it all be, and watch it lay out in front of me as it happens. i knew i wanted to do a shoot, but didn’t have much of a plan until the day before or even day of. the only image i had in my mind was winter white.  amanda and i talked a bit about where we should shoot. out of the blue, i noticed the barn that sits up above the house. never before had i noticed its rustic charm and that day it came alive for me, for all of us. the stick idea evolved from the craft fairs. they have come in quite handy, thanks to my brother’s backyard.  the one thing i knew i wanted and hoped for, were the snowy shots. considering there was no snow on the ground, except on the river, amanda suggested getting down on it where the river was frozen and we could actually stand on it.  brilliant! the white on white, the way amanda’s hair was perfectly put up (unintentionally) for the feather necklace (one of my favorite shots), or the color of donna’s lips and the contrast of her hair with white.. watching it unravel on itself and work out in more ways than i could have imagined, well, i can now see it came out of the calm presence of creating, no stress, beautiful and very talented friends, and love. i didn’t want to boss the boys around, or tell them what to do (maybe only a few times). they nailed it! everyone did their thing and to me, it is simply perfect.

i couldn’t stop making things either. i did this when i started creating things last may for the first craft fair. as i am making one thing, i come up with an idea for another, and then i can’t stop until my vision comes through. of course, running into knicks along the way, but i always see a way to take that problem and turn it into something else. in the end, i end up with a million pieces. i am not the kind of creator whom spend days on one piece. it’s just not my style. i wish i had more patience, but as soon as i make one thing, i have an idea for another and i have this immediate sense to do it. a good thing or not, i don’t know.  i never expected to be a jewelry designer. for the future, i don’t know what my intentions will bring either.  i just know i am the happiest and in the moment when i make something, travel, or eat. :) i suppose i am sharing this, because i am happy to have had the realizations of my process. i moved to the middle of nowhere to focus, and i feel through this experience, i am starting to find it.

as far as the product for this season, i didn’t make that many new macramé pieces. i did try some abstract macramé, which IS my new favorite. i am waiting for more leather to do a few more wall hangings like this as well. i got busy with some new chain and wool pieces. i was inspired by medieval adornment,chain mail, and unconventional uses for traditional supplies. i was also inspired by snow white and the huntsman, yeah i know…i was obsessed with charlize theron’s costuming,. i also started a line of wall hangings and dream catchers as well as plant hangers and terrariums. teaming up with my friend marianne, over at birdandfeather.com where she sells amazing supplies and air plants.

i might be overdoing it in too many areas. however, i can’t seem to stop myself.

i have been hoarding these photos for some time now, anxious to share them and anxious to launch the new shop!! it is finally here! today…today i open her up to the world!

http://sunandgloryshop.com

i am really excited and hope this only brings more opportunity for me and in the future, others! i would love to open up the store to other artists.

i shot this in Colorado between Boulder and Nederland. my friend laura was my model and creative consultant! i have written about her before on the blog. she is a photographer and artist and always coming up with brilliant ideas. it was another great shoot where we just went with it and collaborated on creative ideas. my favorite part, besides all of it, was when it was time to wash off the paint from her arms…she willingly got in the chilly water and we turned it into part of the shoot. it was so beautiful.

i also have to mention my other dear friend, natalie, whom came along and assisted in all ways possible! besides amazing moral support, she helped with wylie, took behind the scenes photos, and kept track of all the things i merely would forget! she has such a happy energy that she made the experience fun!

another friend of mine here in LA, laura, another laura, helped me out and came over one day to be my model for the product shots. it’s so nice when you have such beautiful friends whom don’t even need to wear makeup. it was easy breezy and we had a nice day painting her back and taking photos!

it is no doubt, that i dabble in a lot of things…food, entertaining, crafts, jewelry, travel. i just like to dabble…in everything and anything! it is in my nature to want to do everything and know about everything. i find it all so beautiful. i suppose, the jewelry and crafts though have been a work in progress for years. i have always wanted to try and sell the things i make. often, i would just end up giving the things i made away as presents. when i started making the macrame people started buying it at work…it was the first time that i felt confident to sell my art. now, with this shop i have the opportunity to see what i can really do with it.

thank you to my friends and family for their support! please take a look at the shop and i hope you enjoy!

(laura convinced me less was better with the photos…so, for the shop i did just that…but i have to just spill it all out on the blog. i love them so much!)

the magpie bird is of the crow family and are believed to be one of the most intelligent animals. in the UK, the magpie has been associated with an urban myth of being collectors and thieves of shiny objects. although, there is no evidence in wildlife studies.

magical, mystical, myth.

this photo shoot my friend laura and i cooked up in about an hour…and i am kind of obsessed with it. it all sprang up with some feathers we found downtown and laura’s beautiful handmade jewelry she brought with her. i am simply in love with the creativity we both threw in, the styling, laura’s beauty, our pagan inspiration, and that we did it on a whim. continuing with laura’s veil and hidden mother inspiration and art, she wanted to disguise her face. i also loved  when she  threw in her “what if i eat the chain and then vomit it up?”

this kind of  combined inspiration doesn’t come along often and it is my favorite kind!  i am sort of savoring this post and can’t seem to narrow down the images. i also, can’t wait to do more collaborations!!
