Hello folks! I have been running around the past month like a chicken with my head cut off! I haven't been able to hit the studio for some time. Missing my coffee, metals, and my friend!
I have been sketching like a fiend tho! Finding inspiration and trying to harness that into ideas.
I hope your holiday was fun and festive!
Happy hump day!

Happy Wednesday!

Speckled Feather "Featherbook"

I asked my best friend and photography business partner Susan Hanson to help me do a mini lookbook for my jewelry. I wanted something different and unique to post on Speckled Feathers Etsy page. This was a new thing for me, on both shoot ideas AND being on the other side of the camera. Helped me gain a new perspective on how others feel being photographed! I LOVE how these turned out!

All these items are available on the Etsy page now!

I came across this photo I shot of Waimea Bay in Oahu back in 1996. I had this little film point and shoot camera my dad gave me YEARS before that. This is one of my favorite beaches! I miss Hawaii. And the people. I lived there for a couple of years and met some amazing people. I was very young when I moved there and from then I learned a lot and changed a lot. One day, I will go back and visit.
