Featured Item of the Day

Walrus Pendant
Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O. Pendant measures just under 1 inch wide. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me) over an aluminum dome. Pendant hangs from an 18 inch bronze tone chain with lobster clasp. Photos of solid white button pendants are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler and model are NOT included. You will receive one pendant as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your necklace, it will vary ever so slightly from the one seen in the photo, but will be equally awesome. Pendants look their best when cared for properly. Please avoid getting them wet (remove before shower/swim), put on after applying makeup, and you will be able to enjoy them for a long time. Check out my listings for other super(duper) designs and matching earrings.

Eclipse

Woohoo! We got lucky yesterday and the clouds were thin enough to enjoy the eclipse. I took the afternoon off, enjoyed some wine and a burrito, and had a great time.
I was able to set my camera up to take some photos. They aren't as exciting as the ones I've seen online, but they were still fun to take.
Honestly, the per-eclipse photos are more dramatic, the clouds were puffier then and I love how they turned out. 

Featured Item of the Day

Skull Pin
Creepy, but still quite cool, this skull measures 1 1/8 in wide.

Rachel O’s wood pins start out as little sketches of my crazy ideas. I digitize each drawing, then cut and etch onto wood via my laser. Then the fun begins! I paint each pin by hand. This means that every pin is just a little bit different, but equally awesome! I love how the wood grain is unique to each piece.

Pins each have a one inch bar pin on the back.

I don’t take custom orders, but I do take requests. If you have a pin idea, let me know! If it’s something I can draw, I might just release it as a pin.

Please do not get wood pins wet.

Ruler is in INCHES and is not included- it is for size reference ONLY.

Eclipse?

By the time you can read this, it'll already be decided, but right now, I'm still hoping that it'll be more partly than cloudy for the eclipse this afternoon!

True Blue

I dropped off a batch of map jewelry at True Blue yesterday! It's mostly Omaha maps, but there are some other great locations in there. I'm particularly excited about the display. It's a framed Omaha map! I love a cohesive display.

Button Time!

It's button time in the studio! I've been making fabric buttons as fast as my little fingers possibly can. It's the pre-pre-holiday rush. As a result, I've seen everything on Netflix. Please send viewing suggestions.
