Things I <3 Thursdays {Boots Raven Designs}

It pretty much makes my day when I get a little tip or hint that makes my life easier/happier/awesome-er in some way.  So that got me thinking...  Why not share the little (and big) things that make my life happy.  The things I love.  Enter: Things I <3 Thursdays

Kelly, the amazing shop owner and creative mind behind Boots Raven Designs and I go way back... I still remember when I got my first pair of Boots Raven earrings, a gift from my mom for Christmas several years ago.  They are stunning gold, long feathers that are surprisingly light when I wear them.  And I adore them.

I have loved watching Kelly's style and inspiration evolve over time, and there's always something new in her Etsy shop.  I'm absolutely loving all the bright colors she has going on right now.  You know me and color...

When I asked Kelly "Tell me a little bit about your business and what makes it stand out from others?"  She had this to say:

Boots Raven Designs is a tangible culmination of my inspirations.
My inspirations are a melting pot of architectural digestion, visions of whatever seeds and blooms, a super-sized box of crayolas, and the ocean of design. With these leanings, I create an artistic, sturdy, sustainable and unique product that has a touch of the natural world and is out of the ordinary. My pieces are created using sustainable products, an array of metals, colorful beads, and hypo-allergenic components. I find vast joy in the process of creation, envisioning each piece of jewelry as a piece of mini art. 

My Boots Raven Designs journey began about eight years ago with a great yearning to create with my hands. Due to my lack of comfort with table saws, that yearning gave birth to my line of earrings. My style has morphed and evolved over the years, but the joy in creating has only grown deeper. 
It pleases me so to share my work and a window into me with all of you!

All of these creations are solely created by me in my studio room overlooking Butte Creek here in Northern California. My artistic endeavors are rewarded by the hawks that fly by, the sound of the creek, the ever changing colors, and the continued support of my wonderful friends, family, and customers! Thank you!
