Plumeria and wave stainless steel necklaces

One of the biggest reasons I created this line – to have a way to keep a bit of paradise with you, no matter where you are. I find inspiration and peace in traveling and seeing the world…and I can’t wait to get back out there once it is safe to travel again. For now, this gives me a way to keep what I love close to my heart.

Take care and stay safe!

Idaho State Museum – Free Download

Inspired by the spectacular glass dome at the Idaho State Museum, I created a free downloadable coloring book page (see below). Do they look like scales or flower petals to you?

Idaho State Museum Coloring Book Page

Opened in 1910, this stained glass dome was in the center of the Owyhee hotel’s lobby.  The Boise newspaper proclaimed that the Owyhee was the “handsomest hotel in the West.” When the Owyhee underwent renovations in the 1970s, its owners donated the dome to the Idaho State Historical Society. Today, it can be seen in the Idaho State Museum.
