hustle to a job

first, we restocked one boutique
then, we hand delivered jewelry to a new boutique here in LA who is carrying our work
after that, we picked some "peaces" up from a third boutique,
then finally arrived home to find we received a check from a fourth boutique.

Runway Boutique has been around for six years and is Black owned... which I love because it means my huge Africas and more true "peaces" have a home here in town!

the feather collection launched. most are 1 of a kind!

the purpose of this collection is to get rid of some feathers i've had lying around before we launch the Fall Collection.


i'm receiving heavy compliments on the colorways.
i've never been one to play with color...
until now.

constant growth for the win!

you are appreciated...

lemme tell ya'll...
12+ hour days in the lab are VERY normal around here.

like, everyday.

it's an incredible challenge. and as our momentum increases,
so do our daily emails, commitments, meetings, new vendors, spreadsheets, space issues, deadlines, blessings and opportunities!

if my man wasn't able to assist me with administrative tasks on the regular, I'm not sure what I would have done!

***speaking of, much love to my man for building me an amazing new website!

the nature of the handmade business means my hands touch EVERYTHING that you purchase :) i never knew these lil fingers could work so hard.

i appreciate all of you for your understanding when things occasionally don't ship on the date we planned, or when other issues arise. i want you to know how hard we both work each and everyday, and how much I enjoy having the chance to create for you! and while I don't like making mistakes and can be quite hard on myself, I also know that it's a sign of growth, and so necessary!

we have a lot of things in store for PI over the next year, and God willing, those 12+ hour days MUST and WILL continue because the universe has shown me that it is rewarded.

oh yea, i'm adding these to the boutique tomorrow. all are one of a kind. if you miss out, don't worry, i'll be releasing a small Summer collection of feathers in the next 2 weeks :)

i added a tiny 1" version of my "vision studs" ... i think they are adorable at this size!

a cuff and feather combo is a perfect way to jazz up a basic summer dress!

and my "everyday fly" necklace is back w/ a sterling silver chain, coral and turquoise.
