inspired by...

Monday, September 8, 2014

Inspired by adventure. The open road. Camping under tall pines. Hikes to mountain lakes- the air smelling of wildflowers and freedom. Traveling disrupts the daily grind, resets the spirit and allows you to just BE. I love that. 

Tribal patterns, mountain motifs and colors of the landscape. Free-spirited designs for wanderlusting souls.

 and YES! we saw three bears on our trip (1 black and 2 grizzlies)...not including the one on mr. juni's rump.

All photos taken on our summer road trip- more here. Beads can be purchased on my website

July update...

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Some happenings in my studio this month...

Holiday show applications! While I don't appreciate having to think about the holidays in July, many holiday show applications are due around the start of August. My goal this holiday season is to simplify. I am hopinghopinghoping *fingers crossed* that I make it into a couple larger shows. Instead of offering my usual large selection, I will only be selling bird necklaces- my all time best seller at shows. IF I get accepted, I am making this new super-cool free-standing walk-around tree display from which the birds will hang. I'm hoping this unique touch will help win over the show jurors. 

 I have a pair of earrings and a necklace in this latest issue- woo hoo!
I've been gathering inspiration for my next bead collection: ADVENTURE inspired beads! Visit my Facebook page for in progress sneak peeks of this new collection! Please no reserves on the newbies. Shop update is still TBA- will be several weeks from now.

I will be taking off next week for a road trip camping adventure with my family. Yellowstone/ Tetons bound...but we will see where we end up! Follow along on my instagram @kylieparry.

It's show time!

June update...

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I read somewhere that you really only have 18 summers with your child. We are making the most of juni's first summer with lots of weekend adventures. The bead-making has slowed a bit, and I am veeerrrry sleep deprived, but I'm excited about the weeks to come...

Art Show (my one and only this summer!):
The downtown Appleton Farmers Market
June 21st, 8-12
Preview on what I will be selling coming soon!

Shop Update:
The week following my art show. Specific day/ time TBA.
Theme: Essence of Summer
I will post on FB as soon as I know the deets (and I will send out a newsletter update as well).

moths, watering cans, succulents, watermelons, bikes, and more...

Please no reserves this time around. I've been spending all my time before shop updates answering
messages/ taking reserves and I just don't have the time anymore. Thanks for understanding!

Also, a note about my summer hours. Tuesday-Friday I am around to answer messages and ship out packages. Saturday-Monday we are OUTTA HERE :)

A few images from our latest adventures...for more, you can visit my personal blog.

My July bead collection/ shop update is in the works! It will coincide with an epic road trip/ camping adventure that we are taking WEST to some of our awesome national parks. Stay tuned!
