Ok, I am pushing myself to make another video this week, and if I say it out loud to all of you I'll have to follow through! 😜 I am currently trying to decide between the following two video topics, and I'd love to hear which one you all find most interesting: 1) Tips on what to use and how best to polish your jewelry or 2) An explanation of what gold fill is and why I use it over gold plate or gold vermeil. So if you'd let me know in the comments that would be awesome! Also feel free to write in another subject if you have a suggestion. Thanks!! • • In this pic: The new Filament Earrings that are now available on my website! Another one of my faves from the new group of designs. . . • • • • • • • • • • • • #creativityfound #vermontlife #todaysvermont #madeinvermont #fallfashion #geometricjewelry #makersmovement #homeinthestudio #mycreativebiz #bestmadehandmade #handmadeloves #wearethemakers #thatsdarling #handsandhustle #craftsposure #dscolor #foundmadenodern #inspiredbythis #capturemycraft #theartofslowliving #seekthesimplicity #slowcraft #handmade #etsywholesale #geometric #modernmaker #calledtobecreative #girlboss #ladypreneur

It was a good birthday. I spent a very unscheduled day sitting in the sun, eating good food with family, walking around with my camera, and felt very loved. ❤️ I reconnected with friends and family on the phone, appreciated everyone's birthday gestures for what they were (my kids gave me nails, and a rock?🀷🏻‍♀️) and I even took a little nap. Usually I fill up my birthdays with social events, but I think a day of nothing is the real luxury for me these days. Thanks so much to all of you for the birthday love. You are the best. ❤️Xoxo. • • • • • • • • #nothingisordinary #darlingweekend #thatsdarling #verilymoment #theeverygirl #ilovermont #vermonting #inspiredbythis #optoutside #sheexplores #rsa_rural #pursuepretty #livethelittlethings #abmlifeissweet #makemoments #momentsofmine #lifeofanartist #vermontartist #chasinglight #todaysvermont #creativityfound #bandofun #vermontbyvermonters #vermontlife

Did you know that if you buy one of my pieces and it breaks I will fix it if I possibly can? And usually for no or minimal cost? Like his Black Forest Ring that came back to me in this package I got a couple of days ago from a customer named Marion (pretty name too, right?) Her bf bought it for her at @birdfolkcollective , a rad store here in Vermont that carries my jewelry as well as the work of lots of other makers. She told me she's been wearing it every day since, and somehow one of the mountains became bent. She reached out to me, and after a quick reshaping it is heading back out to her, all fixed up like new, and with a quick polish to boot. Stand by for a quick psa for makers 😁: when you buy something handmade, there is an actual person who does a happy dance, and then stands behind that product. I do this kind of thing for customers all the time. And I am thrilled to see where the ring ended up, and to hear how much she has been enjoying it! And even more thrilled to be sending it right back to her so she can keep on enjoying it. ❤️πŸ’ͺπŸ”¨ #handmadeisbetter #shoplocal #madeinvermont • • • • • • • • • • #wearethemakers #slowcraft #buylesschoosewell #makersmovement #buydifferently #mountainjewelry #rebeccahaasjewelry #differencemakesus #etsywholesale #handmadeloves #foundmademodern #finditliveit #mycreativebiz #craftspire #shopsmall #thatauthenticfeeling #wellmade #thenativecreative #supporthandmade #handcraftedjewelry #handcrafted #sustainable #greenliving #recycledgold #madebyhand #jewelrywithastory #vermontartist

Putting the final touches on my collaboration with @mudandyarn 🀸‍♂️ So excited about this! We've made 8 collaborative pieces of her pretty damn adorable geometric planters and my Copper and Cotton Plant Hangers. (Well, actually we made 10, but we both wanted one, so now there are 8 😜) We'll be giving one away on Instagram next week, so keep an eye out for that, and after that the remaining 7 will be available for sale! #thenewbohemians #collectivelycreate #communityovercompetition • • • • • • • • #collaboration #sodomino #finditstyleit #handsinframe #handmade #etsyseller #differencemakesus #foundmademodern #craftsposure #craftspire #potsinaction #pocketofmyhome #makersmovement #newenglandmaker #madeinvermont #thatsdarling #ladypreneur #dslooking #abmplantlady #plantsmakepeoplehappy #crazyplantlady #thehappynow #makeyousmilestyle #Creativelifehappylife #handmadecurator #handmadeloves

Another look at the new necklace I posted here about a week ago. I'm not quite sure what to do with this one. It is pretty labor intensive, so I'm not sure I want to add it to my web site, but I'm all done for shows for the season. I'm thinking maybe Instagram auction? I've never sold anything this way, although I've certainly bought things that way before. What do you guys think? • • • • • • • • • • #auction #jewelryaddict #jewelrygram #lovegold #handmade #madeinvermont #mycreativebiz #differencemakesus #ohwowyes #etsyseller #calledtobecreative #createeveryday #makersmovement #maker #designermaker #ecoluxe #sustainable #recycledgold #Postitfortheaesthetic #pursuepretty #nothingisordinary #simplestyle #handmadefashion #geometricjewelry #geometric #craftsposure #handmadeloves #foundmademodern

With this as a morning drive, I guess it's no surprise I've been making so many mountain necklaces recently. Makes me wonder what I'd be making if I were still living in Brooklyn. . . #natureinspired #creativityfound #thehappynow • • • • • • • • • #inspiredbythis #thatsdarling #verilymoment #Peoplescreatives #calledtobecreative #createveryday #lifeofanartist #makersmovement #handsandhustle #fromwhereistand #liveauthentic #livefolk #optoutside #sheexplores #girlboss #theartofslowliving #ilovermont #madeinvermont #vermontartist #modernmaker #differencemakesus #bedeeplyrooted #themountainsarecalling #alifeofintention #finditliveit #openuptoautumn #autumnmood

Delicate geometric layers from last week in the studio, destined for Weston Craft Show next weekend. I'm winging my way home now to finish everything up in time for set up on Thursday. I've been having so much fun making new stuff to debut at the show! I think you guys are going to like it!! (I hope you guys are going to like it) • • • • • • • #pursuepretty #delicatejewelry #makersmovement #verilymoment #craftsposure #handmadeloves #differencemakesus #etsywholesale #myunicornlife #folkcreative #madeinvermont #darlingweekend #finditliveit #seekthesimplicity #everydaybeauty #Everydayjewelry #sustainablefashion #ecoluxe #ecofashion #greenlifestyle #thenewbohemians #Contemporarycraft #finecraft #mixedmetal #jewelryaddict #lovegold

Another new design headed for Weston. This weekend we have been wandering the wilds of suburban Chicago visiting my husband's family. Always having been either a country mouse or a city mouse, I always feel a little lost and discombobulated in the suburbs. What about you? Country, city, or in between? • • • • • #pursuepretty #thisismycommunity #capturemycraft #handsandhustle #mindtheminimal #thatsdarling #darlingweekend #myunicornlife #exploretocreate #thehappynow #chicago #makersmovement #lifeofanartist #craftsposure #designermaker #handcraftedjewelry #theartofslowliving #thatauthenticfeeling #finditliveit #myunicornlife #folkcreative #differencemakesus #etsywholesale

Do you think there is a limited amount of creativity a person can put out at one time? Or maybe just a limited direction? While I was working on my new website I barely made any new jewelry. And now that it's done, I'm drawing again. Feeling psyched to get back into the studio this week and be able to really focus on making again. There were parts of designing a website that I really enjoyed, but man could I not do that for a living!! Luckily I had a great team to help me. #myhappyplace #communityovercompetition #dowhatyoulove #thehappynow #calledtobecreative • • • • • • • • #createeveryday #creativity #creativityfound #designermaker #makersmovement #homeinthestudio #creativelifehappylife #creativehappylife #creative #thatsdarling #cylcollective #seekthesimplicity #quietthechaos #aquietstyle #stylingtheseasons #lifeofanartist #geometric #geometricjewelry #slowfashion #darlingweekend #makemoments #sundayvibes

Happy Sunday everyone! I just listed these new Column Earrings on the NEW site! So glad to finally be able to start posting new designs again now that the site switchover is complete. If you haven't checked out my new site yet, the link is in my profile. And if you didn't see my last post, I am doing a site launch giveaway, so scroll back to my last post (from Friday) to see how to enter. I can't tell you how glad I am not to have to think about SEO and content decisions all day anymore! I feel like I have so much more space in my head for other things. Like enjoying this beautiful fall day! πŸƒπŸ‚ • • • • • • • • #thehappynow #giveaway #minimalmood #minimalove #minimalfashion #minimaljewelry #handmadeisbetter #handmadeloves #craftsposure #craftcircle #differencemakesus #etsywholesale #petalsandprops #airplants #gatheredstyle #foundmademodern #iamthelab #makersmovement #shopify #madeinvermont #todaysvermont #finditliveit #darlingweekend #newwebsite #prettycreativestyle #creativelifehappylife #calledtobecreative #thatsdarling #slowfashion #ethicalfashion
