As you may have noticed, I’m blogging less these days. A whole lot of life has been happening lately—some good, some bad—and I’ve decided to stop feeling guilty and simply write when I can.
Freelance work and owning your own business is unpredictable both in schedule and income and I’m so happy with how the first few months of the year have gone! (Feel free to help me keep it up—lots of new goodies are in my store at the moment!)
But one of my favorite constants is pulling together collections for my monthly Card Club deliveries. I had a few new subscribers this month, so I wanted to send out a variety of goodies perfect for spring. Birds and bees, butterflies and flowers were on the agenda this month! Like what you see? Join the club!
Neile is a jewelry design studio that employs the wings of naturally-deceased butterflies to create stunning rings and necklaces. (That show-stopper above? That’s a ring!) The wings are encased between panes of glass and surrounded by artfully placed silver solder. I love the way the natural iridescence of the wings is preserved — the perfect way for these transient insects to live on.
