Marcela is originally from Mexico, but moved to the greater Lansing area last year when her husband began working on his MBA at Michigan State University. Jewelry making began as a hobby in 2004 and now it’s her full time career!
She spent a summer studying Jewelry & Design at the Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design at London and she’s now started distributing her accessories to retail stores in Mexico and selling on Etsy. 


Everything on her site is beautiful and I’m so glad she’s apart of our mid-Michigan community for the time being!


A few photos of my boss lady Kate modeling the necklace! Looks so incredibly cute on her.

I’ve been feeling a little burnt out lately and I’m trying to pick a few days to take off of work just to catch up on things. New goal: stop doing so much crap. For some reason, unlike my money, I like to save up all my PTO at work and do nothing with it. I’m hoarding my vacation days. I occasionally take a day off or a half day, but never a week. Anything I think to do for a vacation is just me doing more work. I’m driving myself crazy lately.

Anywho, I wore this for Day 2 of the art festival. It was so incredibly and painfully hot and so this little cotton dress was the best thing to throw on for a day of walking through crowded streets with fellow hot, sweaty people. I picked up these glasses in Chicago for my friend Ali since she had been on a search for heart shaped sunglasses and for the purposes of this shoot, I threw them on. Ali, you will get them on Sunday!

Time to get ready for bed! I must be at work by 6am-ish to prep for the bimonthly legislative breakfast we host. Let’s hope the legislators show up!

east lansing art festival!

The East Lansing Art Festival took place on Saturday and Sunday and I spent both days browsing the booths, listening to music and eating delicious food. It was so so hot though and I haven’t yet adjusted to the heat. I quickly tracked down my favorite booths to find a few jewelry pieces and spent most of the time looking for food and listening to music at the main stage. 

It was such a fabulous weekend with my friend Courtney here visiting. She met a ton of my Lansing friends and we celebrated my friend Sarah’s birthday on Saturday with dinner and dancing. Here are a few photos from the weekend!

One of my favorite booths was the leather goods booth. My friend Jenn purchased a gorgeous leather bag and I picked up a couple leather wristbands.
