31 Bits, Born and Original Launch- and giveaway!!!

Today, is a big day.
I'm actually a little bit nervous and excited to share this with you. Months ago I was invited to CA to be a part of the new 31 Bits "Born an Original" campaign, and today it's live!! I have been having such a  nice month sharing all of these projects with all of you- so I hope you'll check it out today at 31 !

Below a little sneak peek. An illustration I did inspired by the shoot, and some photos featuring some limited edition pieces from the collection.

During this project I not only got to play in beautiful handmade jewelry, but I also got to meet some of the sweetest people I have ever worked with. I included all of their links below b/c I love them all so much- and I think you will too.

 some info for you:
'The 31 Bits "Born an Original" collection includes handmade, eye-catching accessories, including the very first 31 Bits clutch. Each piece contains paper beads and trinkets embroidered into exquisite patterns. Like these intricate accessories, there are all kinds of bits and pieces that make us who we are. Whether you are a jewelry-maker, a mom, an artist, or a rocket scientist, all women have been given a unique set of skills and talents, an authenticity that can’t be replaced. 31 Bits partnered with fashion illustrator, Dallas Shaw, to help bring this campaign to life. Dallas demonstrates her originality through her incredible illustrations, astounding artistic ability, fashion expertise, and desire to love every person she meets. Learn more at"
