Folk Prism is a collection infused with color for the spring and summer. Inspired by the beautiful color and pattern of the Maasai Tribe creations. Combining genuine Ethiopian brass pieces with African seedbeads and antique trade beads along with authentic bayou boho elements.
I updated the images on my homepage with some of the new things I've been creatin' lately. I am in love with the simplicity of all of these new pieces combining soft leather lace with chunky natural stones and the warm beauty of brass accents. I have been collecting many of these crystals for years and it makes me so happy to finally be using them in such a way that feels perfect to me. A real urban cowgirl & Indian feel. Two things that have I always felt a strong connection to.
I have been busy making these first days of the year and it has been a pleasant way to bring in the new year. These leather necklaces are inspired by bolos and native breastplate necklaces. I like the warmth of the black deer skin with beautiful brass accents and chunky natural stone. I've been blessed with a few sweet custom dreamcatchers and I have enjoyed working with those materials again. I am looking forward to much more creatin' in the year ahead.
Delight. Resilience. Risk. Great words to hold close to my heart when looking forward.
I have been adding some new pieces to my online shop. As I make new things I try to offer some of them in my etsy shop. I also have lots of new pieces at Hemline Lafayette in River Ranch if your a local folk...
I would also love to get my shop on my website off the ground. I have definitely began the process but my hands are so full with babes right now I don't get around to working on it much. But it is in the process...
I am really excited about working with leather again and in a new way. I'm hoping to have a few black deer skin pouches out real soon too. In perfect time for the changing of the seasons as we welcome cooler days.
I am so excited to see my creations being worn by the beautiful Laura of Roots & Feathers and Boho Collective. Her creative stylings and lookbooks are always quite stunning.
AND to top it all off being paired with Gaia Conceptions and Spell, two of my absolute favorites that I have totally mentioned before here and here (which I'm just noticing was from almost 2 years ago to over 4 years ago). Its a small world after all.
