haute hardware: the blog edition

My first blog post...so much pressure!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I decided to start a blog to have a central place to post about all the things I love - jewelry & other crafty endeavors, fashion, travel, and life in general. My main focus will be what I've been working on with my jewelry line, Haute Hardware, with some other little snippets included here & there.

It's been an extremely busy month on the Haute Hardware front - I just did my 5th Urban Street Bazaar this past Saturday. A huge THANK YOU, as always, to Julie from The Make Shop for making this event a success. I honestly don't know how that woman does it all!

I've also got my Etsy site going finally, although I still have miles to go & dozens of pieces to add still. I have a showcase slot on the 17th of this month, so this next week will pretty much be dedicated solely to listing things. People, let me tell you, Etsy is hard. work. I swear it takes me 30 minutes to list one thing, then multiply that by the 70+ pieces I have to post **head spins**. But it is worth it to be a part of such a cool site.

A few weeks back, my friend Grace of highfashiongirl did an awesome write-up on my line on her blog. Check it out here. Her blog is neat and always interesting, and I really appreciate her giving me a shout-out. And speaking of neat, I did my very first advertisement this month in N.E.E.T. Magazine! For those who aren't familiar, N.E.E.T. is an amazing online magazine based out of the U.K. that strictly features independent design. Take some time to flip through it - you won't regret it. Here is my ad that the lovely & talented Stephanie J created for me, featured on pg. 182:

That's about all outta me for now! Thanks for reading, and check back soon for updates. xoxo, Erin
