A note on inspiration, where it comes from, and things I’ve learned about dealing with blockage 💌 I wish I could sit here and say “every time I need to feel inspired I *blah*”. That it’s in books, or traveling, or the desert. Something romantic, super “on brand”, and steadfast. But I can’t, and to be frank I think most people who say they can are trying to put too pretty a bow on the whole thing. Unfortunately sometimes looking for inspiration can be exasperating and fruitless. But what I can say from my personal experience with it all is this: with patience, THE WORK will almost always inspire the work. The materials. The process. The act of DOING the damn thing. I get that showing up day after day making things you yourself feel uninspired by can feel like flailing, but remember it’s ALL part of it. Being disciplined and having a willingness to wade through all sorts of things that don’t work until you find a thing that does, is sometimes the only path to uncovering the spark. It’s hard work but hey it is WORK we are talking about. And if you made it this far you should 100% listen to the @onbeing podcast episode featuring writer (and my personal guru) @elizabeth_gilbert_writer . Just google it. She has a such poignant and relatable perspective on all this stuff that has gotten me through many a “less than” day. I hope it helps if any of you are in it. Holler if you feel me 😘

48 hour auction alert!! ✨🚨🌙🚨✨
These antique moon lockets are basically impossible to meet the demand for, so I’ve decided to run a little IG auction on this one (see product details below!). Bidding opens at just $100. Comment to bid. It’s that easy! Feel free to message me with any questions and don’t forget to keep tabs on your status. Shipping will be added (open to international bidders). Payment due within 2 hours of closing. Bidding will close Thursday at 12pm PST SHARP (that’s 3pm east coast lovers). Happy bidding!

Product details: I found this gold-filled Victorian era locket pretty beat up with missing stones and dark discoloration on both faces (my first restoration project!). Swipe for some before/after + process action. I cleaned her up and added genuine turquoise and opal cabs to create a one of a kind “Blue Moon” locket 😌. Measures 1 1/8” round without the loop for the bale. Hung on a simple gold-filled chain.

If anyone needs me I’ll be here, lighting all my candles, drinking all my wine and quietly meditating on how darn lucky I am to be so supported by ya’ll in my efforts. I know a lot of you have been with me for a very long time and it literally brings me to tears sometimes how ridiculously cool that is (I’m such a cry baby it’s true! 😭). Thanks again for all your support yesterday in the release, whether it was a purchase or just a gander. My heart is full + I am forever grateful 🖤😽🔥

V important reminder from @landandshestudio 🖤 This has been ringing through my head constantly these days. Actually... for years. Especially in this culture of rapid sharing it can be hard not to accidentally veer, so don’t forget to check in with yourself regularly and TUNE OUT from time to time! It’s the voice and vision INSIDE YOU that matters most. The rest is just noise 🌫👁🌫

A note to all the copy cats out there replicating bits from other artists as you try to find your own unique voice: “everything has been done” is not an excuse for acting on *that* impulse (you know the one). If you need to ask yourself if it’s stealing, it DEFINITELY is. And finally... thank you. Thank you for always pushing me to go bigger, dig deeper, and be myself even more fiercely. And thus concludes the most angsty post I’ll probably ever write. 😾😽❤️ *it’s all part of it*
