Orange Silk Flower Earrings

These are a new pair of earrings in my shop. The orange trumpet flowers have a pearly luminescence and are really rich in color. Hung on antiqued brass ear wires, these earrings are very affordable.

Get to Know... Kaz Style

Lately, I've had Japan on my mind because very soon, I will be heading over there to see cherry blossoms, temples and bullet trains. So in honor of that, I want to introduce you to my friend Kaz who is the designer behind Kaz Style. She makes beautiful pouches and jewelry using Japanese fabric and vintage obis and kimonos. Here is a little bit about her, and she is also giving away a little something from her shop to one lucky winner. Read on to get the details.
I am... Japanese, a wife of Sake sommelier, a designer, and kimono stylist.

I was... a fashion designer for a while.

I will be... back to Japan someday in the future. I miss my family all the time...

My passion is... creating (producing?) something original, beautiful, and enjoyable.

Many people don't know that... I am a good swimmer. When I was 5th ~ 9th grade, I often participated swimming competitions and made records and got some trophies.

I'd like to learn...
to speak English more fluently without my Japanese accent! LOL
I'd also like to learn about Japanese culture and arts, for example flower arrangement (ikebana), tea ceremony (sado), calligraphy (shodo), etc.

I can't believe I... have been living in the US for almost a half of my life. (but my English is soooo bad!!)
f I won the lottery...
I would not tell anyone! lol... I would live like as usual...

I'd like to thank... my family for always encourage me and help me to become the person I am today.
Now for the Giveaway!

Wedding Video with some June Shin Designs by Fototails Photography

A few months ago, Jeanine Thurston, of Fototails Photography, did a wedding photo shoot with products from a variety of designers and artists. I've been slow to post this but an finally sharing it with you all. The styling is gorgeous and Jeanine's photography is absolutely stunning. I was so honored to have some of my bridal designs as part of this shoot, and am working hard to add more designs to the collection.

Viewing these pictures almost makes me want to have another wedding. The bride in this picture is wearing a pair of earrings from my collection. Click on the photo to see the video.Thanks Jeanine!

New Triangles Necklace

When I went to the bead show a month ago, I found this great chain of antique silver triangles, which I turned into this necklace. It's delicate, like my usual designs, but has an industrial feel to it. I think it's my new favorite necklace in the shop.

New Early Morning Habits

I've always been a night owl, but have been wanting to change that for the longest time. The idea of waking up in the morning and being able to get the stuff done that most people don't do before noon is so appealing. But I love sleep so much and hate getting out of bed in the morning. Especially if it's cold out. So of late, I've been reading the Zen Habits blog, and Leo Babauta wrote a post on the benefits of waking up early and how to start. Now he apparently wakes up at 4:30am which is WAY to early for me. I usually wake up around 8am without an alarm clock, but this week I decided I want to wake up at 7am and see how productive I can be in the mornings. Yesterday, I went to the gym and today, I've finally made a long overdue post on this blog. So far so good, and I hope to keep it up. How are your mornings?
