The Pinecone Collection

Pinecones have long been embraced around the holidays as a symbol of rebirth, renewal and looking inward for growth and harmony. The Pinecone Collection embraces this beauty, with splashes of color hinting at new life in the winter landscape. What better time for a reminder to breath and find a moment of stillness during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season?

Jewelry Class in Austin, TX

I had the opportunity to travel to Austin for a long weekend to attend a wax carving workshop with master jeweler Kate Wolf at Creative Side Jewelry Academy of Austin.  I will be processing all the information and amazing tips and tricks that I learned for many months to come.  It was so much fun to try new techniques– my favorite being the wax lathe.  I may have walked away with an idea for the next collection but more importantly, I am so excited to start the next collection with my new repertoire of skills and tools.

Most of my time in Austin was spent in class, however I did get a chance to enjoy the Travis Heights area where I was staying.  The neighborhood was so lush with incredible vegetation and diverse homes with lots of character. Toms coffee shop was within walking distance and in true Toms fashion made you feel good about your purchase–each bag of coffee they sell means a week of clean water for one person in Rwanda.  I also managed to enjoy some of the amazing cuisine in Austin.  My favorite was Elizabeth Street Café, a Vietnamese cafe and French Boulongerie.  I savored the delicious pork BÚN and coconut macarons with my friends Stephanie Redmond and Courtney Sames (amazing portrait photographer).
