Pretty Happy — Pretty Happy Life RSS



This ones for you! A love letter.

Oh, Haaaay there friend! Here I am, sitting in the man chair in my happy place (the shop), reflecting on all the wonderful souls who have come into my life through this business over the years.  In fact, I've been doing a lot of reflecting lately and thinking about what parts of my business really make me tick. What lights me up? I always thought it was the jewelry, the creating. Making pretty things, happy things. But I'm realizing more and more that it's actually not that. It's the people. It's YOU. The people who love the jewelry. The people who tell me how it makes THEM happy or how sharing it made them happy. The people who love the...

Pretty Good, Tiffany & Co!

Winner winner, chicken dinner. Or sparkly gowns and junior mints, rather. The 2017 Oscars didn't disappoint. Glamour, goosebumps, giggles and gasps. I only saw one of the movies nominated, but it won best picture so I guess I chose well. Seriously, go see Moonlight if you haven't. Amazing.

Pretty Happy

Pretty Happy. This is me.  The jewelry that I make is often described as happy and pretty.   It makes people smile. And that makes me smile. It's the most rewarding part of my job.  But where does this “happy jewelry” come from? The delicate, whimsical flowers and shapes? Are all artists expressing their insides when they create? So, I am expressing myself as a delicate flower...  Er, I don’t think any one I know would describe me that way.   This jewelry journey began about 10 years ago. My life was very different from what it is now. I was single. I was sassy. And it was literally my job to be sexy, silly, strong, and smart all at the same time. ...
