I went out exploring today to look for props to use in this month's newsletter. How pretty is this fall foliage? Seed pods, a couple of quince, peony leaves. It's a rambling collection of shapes and color. If you'd like to see the finished product there is still time to sign up before I send it out tomorrow! I only send one a month, so it's not a big commitment of inbox space, scouts honor. This month you'll get a heads up about the dates for this year's holiday sale, as well as upcoming events, my favorite recipe for apple pie, and other various fun holiday happenings. And when you sign up you'll get 15% off your next order! Sweet!

Momentum Necklaces are starting to flow out of the studio! This design is kind of a departure for me, so I'm thrilled that it is getting such a positive reception! Currently it comes with Navy, Dark Chocolate, or Caramel suede. I have to order more leather today. Any other colors you'd like to see? #acolorstory #makeyousmilestyle • • • • • • • • • • #rebeccahaasjewelry #thehappynow #craftsposure #handmadeloves #craftcircle #handmadecurator #seeingthepretty #WowEtsy #Differencemakesus #Createcultivate #Bigmagic #handmadehappy #craftandfolk #foundmademodern #minimalove #geometricjewelry #minimalfashion #handmade #handmadeisbetter #etsyseller #etsywholesale #modernmaker #contemporarycraft #minimalfashion #slowcraft #slowfashion #designmilk #creativehappylife

These new Arrow Swing Earrings were part of the last site update. Did you see them? I've only made one pair so far, and they were snapped up right away at my last show. They looked sooo good on the woman who bought them, who had shoulder length jet black hair. I wish I had taken a picture, but it all happened so fast. . . Luckily I did take this picture and a couple others before they sold. Check them out through the link in profile. • • • • • • #bohostyle #shoulderdusters #arrow #arrowjewelry #geometricjewelry #minimalist #seekthesimplicity #simplestyle #inspiredbythis #craftsposure #bedeeplyrooted #craftspire #handsinframe #makersmovement #differencemakesus #ohwowyes #ardentfinds #prettylittlethings #jewelrygram #earrings #makersvillage #hellohandmade #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #Jotd #jewelryaddict

I saw this inspiring quote in my feed this morning about how essential it is to always strive to keep learning and growing. And as I thought about how great it is, I realized, for this briefly halting moment: Dang, I work alone. So I'm always the smartest, and also definitely the dumbest, person in the room. But then I realized, I have you guys! And that's why I rely on you so much to be my sounding board, my inspiration, and sometimes my much needed reality check. So it turns out what I am saying is THANK YOU, because I could never do this without you! With the whole internet as my community, I'll never get complacent, and opportunities to learn are infinite. It makes running a business out of the back woods of Vermont a whole lot more dynamic. Community now comes in many forms, and rooms have no walls. πŸ’ͺ❤️πŸ‘Š (Attribution: I believe this quote originated from @justbobbibrown ) • • • • • • • • • • • #thisismycommunity #lifeofanartist #communityovercompetition #mycreativebiz #girlboss #ladypreneur #theeverygirl #Thatsdarling #makersmovement #thehandmademovement #creativepreneur #Creativelifehappylife #creativityfound #smallbusiness #calledtobecreative #inspiredbythis #creativehappylife #verilymoment #cylcollective #designermaker #handmade #gratitude #mondaymusings #inspiremyinstagram #craftspire #bedeeplyrooted #vermontartist #todaysvermont

What do you guys think of this tiny version of the Mima Teardrop Necklace? (It's the one on the top) A customer special ordered it, and I think it's super cute! Should I add it to the shop? I especially over how it layers. . . • • • • • • • #layeringnecklace #handmade #makersmovement #inspiredbythis #handmadeloves #handmadecurator #differencemakesus #etsywholesale #pursuepretty #postitfortheaesthetic #delicatejewelry #Makersvillage #Hellohandmade #Thatsdarling #Thehappynow #Craftsposure #Jotd #Darlingmovement #Theeverygirl #Abmhappylife #Oneofthebunch #Bohobrides #Bohowedding #homeinthestudio #Flashesofdelight #Mindtheminimal #Modernmaker #Chooselovely #Creativehappenings

Ok, I am pushing myself to make another video this week, and if I say it out loud to all of you I'll have to follow through! 😜 I am currently trying to decide between the following two video topics, and I'd love to hear which one you all find most interesting: 1) Tips on what to use and how best to polish your jewelry or 2) An explanation of what gold fill is and why I use it over gold plate or gold vermeil. So if you'd let me know in the comments that would be awesome! Also feel free to write in another subject if you have a suggestion. Thanks!! • • In this pic: The new Filament Earrings that are now available on my website! Another one of my faves from the new group of designs. . . • • • • • • • • • • • • #creativityfound #vermontlife #todaysvermont #madeinvermont #fallfashion #geometricjewelry #makersmovement #homeinthestudio #mycreativebiz #bestmadehandmade #handmadeloves #wearethemakers #thatsdarling #handsandhustle #craftsposure #dscolor #foundmadenodern #inspiredbythis #capturemycraft #theartofslowliving #seekthesimplicity #slowcraft #handmade #etsywholesale #geometric #modernmaker #calledtobecreative #girlboss #ladypreneur

It was a good birthday. I spent a very unscheduled day sitting in the sun, eating good food with family, walking around with my camera, and felt very loved. ❤️ I reconnected with friends and family on the phone, appreciated everyone's birthday gestures for what they were (my kids gave me nails, and a rock?🀷🏻‍♀️) and I even took a little nap. Usually I fill up my birthdays with social events, but I think a day of nothing is the real luxury for me these days. Thanks so much to all of you for the birthday love. You are the best. ❤️Xoxo. • • • • • • • • #nothingisordinary #darlingweekend #thatsdarling #verilymoment #theeverygirl #ilovermont #vermonting #inspiredbythis #optoutside #sheexplores #rsa_rural #pursuepretty #livethelittlethings #abmlifeissweet #makemoments #momentsofmine #lifeofanartist #vermontartist #chasinglight #todaysvermont #creativityfound #bandofun #vermontbyvermonters #vermontlife

Did you know that if you buy one of my pieces and it breaks I will fix it if I possibly can? And usually for no or minimal cost? Like his Black Forest Ring that came back to me in this package I got a couple of days ago from a customer named Marion (pretty name too, right?) Her bf bought it for her at @birdfolkcollective , a rad store here in Vermont that carries my jewelry as well as the work of lots of other makers. She told me she's been wearing it every day since, and somehow one of the mountains became bent. She reached out to me, and after a quick reshaping it is heading back out to her, all fixed up like new, and with a quick polish to boot. Stand by for a quick psa for makers 😁: when you buy something handmade, there is an actual person who does a happy dance, and then stands behind that product. I do this kind of thing for customers all the time. And I am thrilled to see where the ring ended up, and to hear how much she has been enjoying it! And even more thrilled to be sending it right back to her so she can keep on enjoying it. ❤️πŸ’ͺπŸ”¨ #handmadeisbetter #shoplocal #madeinvermont • • • • • • • • • • #wearethemakers #slowcraft #buylesschoosewell #makersmovement #buydifferently #mountainjewelry #rebeccahaasjewelry #differencemakesus #etsywholesale #handmadeloves #foundmademodern #finditliveit #mycreativebiz #craftspire #shopsmall #thatauthenticfeeling #wellmade #thenativecreative #supporthandmade #handcraftedjewelry #handcrafted #sustainable #greenliving #recycledgold #madebyhand #jewelrywithastory #vermontartist

Putting the final touches on my collaboration with @mudandyarn 🀸‍♂️ So excited about this! We've made 8 collaborative pieces of her pretty damn adorable geometric planters and my Copper and Cotton Plant Hangers. (Well, actually we made 10, but we both wanted one, so now there are 8 😜) We'll be giving one away on Instagram next week, so keep an eye out for that, and after that the remaining 7 will be available for sale! #thenewbohemians #collectivelycreate #communityovercompetition • • • • • • • • #collaboration #sodomino #finditstyleit #handsinframe #handmade #etsyseller #differencemakesus #foundmademodern #craftsposure #craftspire #potsinaction #pocketofmyhome #makersmovement #newenglandmaker #madeinvermont #thatsdarling #ladypreneur #dslooking #abmplantlady #plantsmakepeoplehappy #crazyplantlady #thehappynow #makeyousmilestyle #Creativelifehappylife #handmadecurator #handmadeloves

Another look at the new necklace I posted here about a week ago. I'm not quite sure what to do with this one. It is pretty labor intensive, so I'm not sure I want to add it to my web site, but I'm all done for shows for the season. I'm thinking maybe Instagram auction? I've never sold anything this way, although I've certainly bought things that way before. What do you guys think? • • • • • • • • • • #auction #jewelryaddict #jewelrygram #lovegold #handmade #madeinvermont #mycreativebiz #differencemakesus #ohwowyes #etsyseller #calledtobecreative #createeveryday #makersmovement #maker #designermaker #ecoluxe #sustainable #recycledgold #Postitfortheaesthetic #pursuepretty #nothingisordinary #simplestyle #handmadefashion #geometricjewelry #geometric #craftsposure #handmadeloves #foundmademodern

With this as a morning drive, I guess it's no surprise I've been making so many mountain necklaces recently. Makes me wonder what I'd be making if I were still living in Brooklyn. . . #natureinspired #creativityfound #thehappynow • • • • • • • • • #inspiredbythis #thatsdarling #verilymoment #Peoplescreatives #calledtobecreative #createveryday #lifeofanartist #makersmovement #handsandhustle #fromwhereistand #liveauthentic #livefolk #optoutside #sheexplores #girlboss #theartofslowliving #ilovermont #madeinvermont #vermontartist #modernmaker #differencemakesus #bedeeplyrooted #themountainsarecalling #alifeofintention #finditliveit #openuptoautumn #autumnmood

Delicate geometric layers from last week in the studio, destined for Weston Craft Show next weekend. I'm winging my way home now to finish everything up in time for set up on Thursday. I've been having so much fun making new stuff to debut at the show! I think you guys are going to like it!!

Another new design headed for Weston. This weekend we have been wandering the wilds of suburban Chicago visiting my husband's family. Always having been either a country mouse or a city mouse, I always feel a little lost and discombobulated in the suburbs. What about you? Country, city, or in between? • • • • • #pursuepretty #thisismycommunity #capturemycraft #handsandhustle #mindtheminimal #thatsdarling #darlingweekend #myunicornlife #exploretocreate #thehappynow #chicago #makersmovement #lifeofanartist #craftsposure #designermaker #handcraftedjewelry #theartofslowliving #thatauthenticfeeling #finditliveit #myunicornlife #folkcreative #differencemakesus #etsywholesale
