i’m super excited about this event – and not just because i get to sell my wares at one of my favorite places but because i will be surrounded by some majorly talented designers that i have admired for YEARS! if you love jewelry this is the event not to be missed! additionally there will be other treasures in pewter, leather, and more…
chaparral studio will be selling a variety of crowd pleasers and one of a kind surprises (perhaps i will show some sneak peeks soon…)!
so come and get a head start on your holiday shopping or personal shopping! have a martini! a bite to eat! and visit me!

bad bloggers / good instagramers

January 15, 2013

we are totally guilty of not being so hot at this whole blogging thing these days. truth is out. but i will say that if ya wanna keep up – instagram is the best spot to see what we are up. or if you just really like photos of aussies and succulents its also a hot spot for your viewing pleasure. we will try to be better at blogging. but in the mean time be sure to check out our instagram. xo b

it was the first time i represented myself as chaparral studio. felt damn good too.
finally!!!
i feel like i have been hiding some big secret.
well.
it is out!

the event was lovely – hosted at the very place i was practically raised and taught SHOP 101 and beyond. it is owned for 22 years by the most wonderful woman, paulanna c. (i love this woman. the doors she has opened for me. metaphorically and then some).
i got to see lots of old friends – laugh alot (and i was martini free!)! and new friends.

the other exciting part of the night – showing off my new case a couple new props… squirrel fur pelt, new (old) crystals, antler brush, custom stained fabric… it is all in the details!

thank you to everyone who came out. i really appreciate your support. and thank you to the other designers who participated. i always love to be in your presence! xo
