YOU. GUYS. OMG. I am so excited to announce the opening of my new shop Design and Curiosity Studio! If know me you know I have a THING for statement jewelry, actually it’s a whole obsession if I’m being real. There’s a bit of a back story for this whole idea and I’d love to get into it.
So. Following a pretty bad breakup at the beginning of the year I was really ready (read needed) to do my own thing and find something that I liked doing and felt very ME. I found that crafting and making things, specifically statement earrings, was just the thing. Some of my past blog posts kind of reflect this transition period – often involving lots of pom poms like my rainbow pom necklace and my pom shoe clips and my diy statement earrings.
But for awhile, even before the breakup, I was in search of the ultimate creative outlet. Something that was just the purest expression of my creativity. I can’t say how exactly I landed on statement earrings but from where I’m sitting at this moment there is just nothing more perfect. It’s the only kind of jewelry I wear and I am so excited to share my ideas and products with this community. I truly hope you love them as much as I loved coming up with the ideas and making them.
It’s so hard to pick favorites because I really just love them all but here are a few of my absolute favorites:
These guys. I still geek out a little when I see them. They’re made from green fluorescent acrylic so they have a fun reaction to light. Not mention the little ‘cactus flowers’ on the two arms – aka mini pom poms. I had a vision of these one day and actually figuring out how to create them was actually one of the more fulfilling things I’ve ever done.
I may be totally biased but these are a MUST HAVE in your wardrobe. I dedicate this to all of my boss babes out there. It’s black gloss acrylic letters because, ya know, it’s so much more profesh that way, right?
I go back and forth so much but I’m pretty sure these have solidified themselves as my #1 favorite pair I’ve made. Especially these days when I am embracing my single life and basking in the light of my friends that are just the absolute definition of GRL PWR. The letters are 1″ tall and a bright purple acrylic so the message gets across pretty clear.
And that’s only 1/3 of the products I have. There are so many more in the shop. Please check it out and let me know what you think!
And just as another little mini announcement while my blog has always been a little over the place I am officially moving the focus from DIYs, etc. to strictly interiors focused. It is my educational background after all and I want this particular space in the internet to be where I post my current design projects. While I will never stop creating other things (ever.) I am shifting focus to really grow my studio and create great products that everyone can wear. If you ever have any questions or suggestions please never hesitate to reach out, I am always willing to listen and grow!
Today is a totally overwhelming and emotional day for me as I take this step from designer and blogger and add entrepreneur to my resumé (I mean how grown up is that sentence?!). Thanks so much to those who have supported me along the way, my heart is just bursting.
