hello + goodbye

unruly things / hello + goodbye

hello friends! I suppose by now you’ve noticed the radio silence in this little space. the funny thing about blogging is even though you’re loving it while you’re in it, you keep wondering how long you’ll keep doing it and if or when you’ll stop? my life is going so fast these days and the direction that I’m going isn’t toward blogging. it’s really sad and a super tough decision that I’ve made but my heart just isn’t in this place any more. Unruly Things has been a labor of love for nearly NINE YEARS. I’ve made incredible friends and have developed fabulous partnerships with many amazing sponsors and shops. I have ideas of blogging in the future but for now, I bid you adieu.

so while this is a goodbye to this blog, it’s not a total goodbye. please keep in touch, friends! I’ll miss this place dearly but I hope that you’ll continue to follow our family adventures on Instagram. I’m there, almost daily, posting snippets of our life in Oregon along with fun things like the occasional giveaway or discount. adios amigos!

currently coveting : bridge & burn spring preview ’15

Bridge & Burn Spring Preview '15 | seen on Unruly Things, photos by Cara Denison

we’ve had a beautiful winter here in the Pacific Northwest. uncharacteristically warm and sunny. these beautiful images from Bridge & Burn’s latest Spring lookbook pretty much sum up the weather we’ve been having. boat lounging, sun-soaking weather. colors influenced by the blue of the Pacific, the yellows of summer’s golden hour, and woodsy, natural greens. I just love that classic plaid skirt and those silk pants. the full collection will be available at the end of March but in the mean time, see more here.

show me your stack : Stephanie Lee | unruly things

this week’s stack is a BEAUTY from jewelry designer Stephanie Lee of Stephanie Karen Jewels, or SKJ. Stephanie is a new to me designer and I’m so happy that she submitted her stack. I love her collection so so much! her rings are super unique. I mean, that double spiked Eva Rome ring. right?! so so good. here’s what Stephanie has to say about her stack…

Currently, the rings seen in the pictures have been my go to pieces for creating new and favorite stacks. I love that I am able to use the same pieces to create multiple different stacks, from modern and sleek to bold and edgy, depending on my mood or outfit. I wanted to create pieces that had edge, warmth, and vivaciousness. The mixture of textures, geometric shapes, materials, and stones found in my collection allows for an infinite number of combinations. It’s a liberating feeling to be able to compliment your personality and style with the perfect ring or rings. These stacks create an edgier look, but with the same rings only in a different combination a softer and effortless look can be created. The design philosophy behind my collection is to create versatility for the wearer without requiring them to sacrifice their originality. 

thank you so much Stephanie!

show me your stack : Sarah Swell | unruly things

hi friends! it’s been far too long since I’ve shared a stack with you. it’s a new year and a perfect time for new stacks. first up is this gorgeous stack from jewelry designer Sarah Swell. she’s got a great combo of rings and here’s what she has to say about them.

I almost always wear a pretty full stack of rings. Even though I work heavily with my hands and have a terrible case of “jeweler nails,” I just feel naked without them. I love to mix metals and pretty rings with tough rings for an interesting collection.

From left of photo to right:
1. Flotsam & Jetsam ring with diamond from my collection.
2. 18k gold serpent ring and 18k tidal diamond channel-set band from my bridal collection.
3. Lauren Wolf triple pyramid ring in silver.
4. 18k color change sapphire and diamond ring.  This was a parting gift from the first jeweler I ever worked for.  I’ve been wearing it for 10 years.
5. A grouping of my rings with a Satomi Kawakita ring my husband got me for our anniversary.
6. My wedding set.  I created the engagement ring which is inspired by art deco egytian revival style and showcases my grandmother’s diamond in a bezel surrounded by pyramids and snake heads.  The band is a snake as well by Nora Kogan.
