Remember those asymmetric Leland blue earrings I made for the guidelines project?? Well those led to pages and pages of other earring ideas.. now I just need to carve out the time to make a few of these! Which idea is your favorite/should I start with? // // #kelseygrapejewelry #makersgonnamake #creativepreneuer #communityovercompetition #creativityfound #contemporaryjewelry #lelandblue #wip #studioprocess #creativehappylife #womenartists #doitfortheprocess #carveouttimeforart #ladysmith #onthebench

These little moments of blue sky are the best! (Although I think I might need a full ski mask for the freezing winter wind we’ve had lately!)

It’s kind of handy having all these tile samples around the house! ✨ Every shoreline necklace has its own unique shape and pattern!

The blue skies yesterday afternoon had me hoping for a sunset but no luck.. so here is the sherbet-y sunset from Sunday!

Starting the week off with a clean bench top feels so good, I think it’s time to dive into some new wax projects... it’s been way too long since I’ve focused on wax. Also can I just say that I love this bench, mostly because it is a perfect reminder of my time spent in Minneapolis at @quenchjewelryarts! A few years ago when Steve and I decided to move to Minneapolis without knowing anyone there I was a little worried because I knew he’d be working a lot and I wasn’t really sure how it would all work out on my side of things... little did I know I would find myself among a group of incredibly talented and inspiring people I now call friends. I will always be grateful to have spent time creating alongside all of you✨👩🏻‍🏭💙 (also I don’t think my bench was ever this clean when I was there 😂)

A very good Sunday!

Terrible at cropping or intentionally wonky?🧐 Either way these big (but lightweight) beauties are one of the few pairs of gold finish shoreline earrings currently available online!

Soaking in every little bit of blue sky this winter! / Does anyone have suggestions for good winter gloves that work on touch screens? My method of no gloves followed by clutching hand warmers seems a bit silly 😂

I don’t believe I’ve ever shown these earrings before and I just found them again while cleaning out my bench! These are the earrings I made for my wedding..I made them 2 days before the wedding without any real plan and very little time! I think the expectation was that I would make a pair of one of a kind filigree earrings for myself and I thought I would too.. but instead I made these little weirdos using the scrap metal littering the top of my bench and a few Oregon sunstones! They ended up being just right for that hectic beautiful day.. now I need to put them with the rest of my jewelry so I don’t lose them again! ✨

Almost one full week into the new year already! How are you feeling about 2019 so far? It’s easy and kind of fun to get caught up in the “new year new me” wave but I think we’ve all experienced the let down when lasting change doesn’t happen as quickly or as easily as we want or expect. Or when stress from the previous year follows us into the next, which of course it does! I think every day we wake up different, better for having experienced the previous day. This is going to sound dangerously like a resolution but... this year I want to focus more on celebrating those small every day victories without forgetting to learn from those every day mistakes.. . . . Okay I really thought I’d make it through this week without posting a rambling message about the new year but here we are.. 😂 there is definitely something hopeful about this time of year! (Maybe it’s just all the uplifting quotes we are bombarded with on social media) Let’s all just agree to carry this hopefulness forward with us every day instead of letting it dissipate as the year moves on. So cheers to a year of discovery and kindness!

Woke up to frosty trees and full sun...These are the winter days we hope for!

In the new year what color metal do you think you will be wearing more...gold or silver? Im a big fan of mixing metals but I meet a lot of people who only wear one or the other..🧐
