Mid-winter doldrums got you down? February 5, 2019 07:34
Sometimes, winter just seems so long!
We've been getting plenty of snow here in Durango, which I love! But about this time every year, I start to feel a little low on energy and hibernating feels like a good idea. What do I do to bring my energy back up (besides drinking way too much coffee)?
I get outside! On Saturday, my friend and I met in Silverton, CO, to ride our snow bikes. It was a beautiful day as you can see, and the few hours of riding and conversation were just what we needed to bring our spirits up.
Another great way to brighten up your mid-winter mood is to refresh your jewelry! Sometimes a new pair of earrings or a fun stretch triple wrap bracelet is just the thing to make you smile, even through a polar vortex!
I know I've been switching up my usual go-to jewelry with some brighter colors and different styles. It's fun to mix it up once in a while, right?
For you Durango locals, I've got a Valentine's Day show at the Smiley Cafe:
I hope to see you there!
If you can't wait, I have lots of new jewelry on my website, so hurry over there and check it out!
Cheers to you all and stay warm!

Celebrating Fall September 22, 2017 13:02
Fall is my favorite season here in Colorado. I love the cool, crisp mornings and warm afternoons, the changing colors, the scent of the falling leaves and the brilliant blue sky. I enjoy being out in nature even more in the fall, and feel so rejuvenated and inspired by the changes going on around me.
This inspiration and renewed energy infuses my creativity as well. I feel a surge of energy and the ideas flow beautifully in my studio. I've been working on a collection of stretch triple wrap bracelets with Colorado charms and the colors of nature are certainly inspiring the colors I'm choosing for these pieces.
I've got some new necklaces and earrings with beautiful enamel pieces which I acquired from Janine Gibbons when she closed her local studio. These too are full of the rich autumn colors I'm seeing around me.
Let's celebrate fall with a bountiful harvest of DKTDesigns jewelry! For you Durango locals, I'll be at Botanical Concepts September 29 - October 1, for their Fall Fest Artisan Market and Plant Sale. Mention this post for 20% off your total purchase.
If you're not a local, I haven't forgotten you! You can reap the 20% discount on my website. Use code FALLFEST20 at checkout. Offer valid September 28 - October 6.
Shop early and often for the best selection!
Enjoy the season!

Appreciating Mom May 2, 2017 16:00
I don't know about you, but it took me till my late 20s, even my 30s, to appreciate my mom.
Mom and I near Ouray, CO
Now that I'm a mom myself, I think about what Mom did and I'm so thankful for her, even if I forget to tell her that! From always having a home cooked meal for us three, often ungrateful, kids, to taking us to Europe when we were 8, 11, and 13 years old, Mom was loving, brave and strong. She didn't choose the easy way, and maybe it wasn't always the "right" way, but everything she did came from a place of love, and wanting what was best for her children.
You may say that Mothers Day is a commercial "Hallmark Holiday", but I see it as a day when we all can remember to show our appreciation for the mom who raised us and sacrificed so much for us.
I would love to help you find a unique, handcrafted gift for your mom! Stay tuned, because I'm going to have a special offer for Mothers Day that you won't want to miss!
In the meantime, call your mom!
