store progress { & the winner! }

A peek of the front retail space:


The walls are painted,
the trim is up and black {love!},
the french doors are hung,
and the wood floor is complete!

We are deciding where to put furniture, ordering the sign, thinking about price tags, building a counter, printing out pictures, advertising, window display... some big details, some small details... lots to do!

A peek of the back studio space:



One of our managers wrote this scripture on their board, love that they encourage each other this way! Isn't that awesome???

Eden comes to work with me and she "works" :)

LOVE these turquoise plates I found at Anthropology when in NYC, aren't they pretty?

Our dainty drop crystals.



So what do you think so far?

I just discovered your website and am so excited that you're going to have a store that I can visit! Is this by chance in the Plaza shopping center in Tulsa? Looks familiar in the pic of the storefront outside. At least one piece of your jewelry will be on my wish list for Christmas! Thanks for creating such beautiful and meaningful jewelry.
