It’s a high of 81 degrees here, but I’m guessing Nice Rink owners have benefited from the Polar Vortex this year.  I had the pleasure of designing their mugs this year, super fun change of pace!  Thanks Jill & Jim.

I also love looking outside at my green grass and blooming azaleas…sorry Chicago friends…but if it makes you feel any better, I’m stuck, inside, yet again, doing my taxes…bleh!

If you peeked at my maternity photos, you may have noticed my new Live Oak inspired jewelry by Savannah artist, Chris Carpentino.  Originally from Alaska, Chris came to Savannah and found great inspiration in our beautiful oaks.  His work takes real acorns and branches of Live Oaks and casts them into beautiful pieces of wearable art.  After discovering my work at Savannah Blueprint (my favorite printers in Savannah!)  he contacted me about drawing a Live Oak for him.  After seeing some samples of his work, I knew I HAD TO HAVE some for my own jewelry collection, so we started a little collaboration.

Live Oak Tree Skeleton

I worked up a tree skeleton for him referenced by a tree found in Historic Forsyth Park.

Chris took real Savannah Live Oak branches and cast me this gorgeous set of cuffs (my photo does them no justice).  These are one of a kind prototypes, but he’ll be launching some similar works in his shop shortly!    He paired the cuffs with an equally unique pair of his copper acorn earrings.  *swoon*

I can’t wait to see what he cooks up next! Be sure to check out his work at www.thecopperacorn.com

Just before the start of the New Year, I was approached by Ash and Laurel of Ashley Hilton Jewellery to use one of my Oak Tree Drawings on a sample wedding band.  I’m always thrilled to work with other Etsy sellers, and I promptly agreed.  I could not have been happier with their translation of my drawing, except to find out that others wanted their very own Spanish Moss draped rings AND to hear that it was featured on Huff Post Weddings, May 1st!  What a way to start the month!

I have had the pleasure of working with so many Jekyll Island Club brides, that it’s about time I added this beautiful wedding venue to my collection of hand painted watercolor prints.   Each print is printed with archival quality inks onto watercolor paper, then painted and signed by yours truly.  For more information CLICK!
