Elements & Artifacts on The Vampire Diaries!

I'm very excited to announce that tonight's episode #608 of The Vampire Diaries will feature a pair of my earrings worn by Nina Dobrev's character Elena Gilbert! I'm so happy for this opportunity and hope that there will be more to come. Let me know if you spy them, though it might be tricky if Elena's hair is down. 

A limited number of these earrings will be listed for sale in the shop!

Edit: My Just Be Still necklace was selected for use on the hit TV show "Bones" and appeared in season 12, episode 4 (January 2017). My Indigo Hour necklace appeared on "The Vampire Diaries" season 8, episode 5 (November 2016). Stay tuned, more are coming!

Presenting the annual E&A Yuletide/Winter Collection!

It's HERE! I’m very excited to present the (almost) final collection of the year with well over one-hundred new items! I love working with this theme and exploring the duality and tension of the light/dark and warm/cold aspects of the approaching winter months. I also just plain love working more luxe “gemmy” gemstones, which fit with the air of decadence that the holidays bring. 

I didn’t want this entire collection to be about winter and the holidays, so I drew inward to conjure a new subset of moon-and-stars themed items. I also spent several weeks curating a list of literary quotes and short poems to form a group of bracelets. I got to dust off my typography skills and even gave the silver a distressed paper texture. 

This collection signals the end of my creative year (other than stocking stuffers) and so it also brings a contentedness and lightheartedness as I reflect on the past year. I look forward to turning inward, spending time with my family for the holidays, and recharging my creative juices for the coming 2015 year! I already have a few plans in mind…

Stay tuned for an announcement for stocking stuffers and Holiday Madness later this month! :)
