Two-Faceted + BornPretty

______BornPretty sent me a package that is essentially fairy crystal jewelry, for it's complete with gold-plated jewelry that boasts faceted prisms glittering with rainbows. I received an adjustable cube ring, crystal cube open cuff bracelet, and some mint and rainbow rhinestone earrings. I actually own the bracelet in silver, but loved how sturdy and thick the metal was that I had to have it in gold, too. Never one to disappoint, BornPretty s products are of superb quality, especially considering the price one can buy them at. I'm especially fond of the variety of crystal cube items they have!

______Naturally, since I found a comfortable spot in the woods to take blog photos here in the land of Iowa, karma decided I did something terribly wrong to disturb the balance of the universe... what I'm saying is karma decided to drop a tree on the planked bridge I became so accustom to taking photos on. That honestly felt like a painfully relevant metaphor to life--when something falls on a bridge you've come so comfortable crossing, find another way to cross.

That bridge ish is deep, man. I'm sorry to hear! And I was sorry to hear about the muddy jellies too! Darn it! But these photos are extremely stunning and I love the bright cheeriness of your outfit!

Aliiiii! So good to see you back <3 You look absolutely stunning in this bright combo and all bedazzled with that gorgeous gem jewelry. If I could raid anyone's jewelry collection, it'd be yours haha.

Eeep, I'm sorry to hear about your photo-taking spot, but I love the analogy you make. Sometimes life does not-so-great things, and all we can do is try our best to adapt.

Hoping all has been well in your sphere. Much love always!

Oh what pretty jewelry! But man, that's too bad about the tree falling on the bridge, love your analogy though!

See, BornPretty knew when they found a true fairy to wear their gems! ;)
And what better way to advertise than through the fairy princess herself?
Glad to see a post from you, your highness! This new spot you found is quite lovely and magical as well. Definitely appreciate your insight about finding new paths when one gets blocked.
Hope Iowa is treating you well!

Born Pretty does send you lots of fabulous pieces, and I'm especially taken with the cuff bracelet. Sorry to hear about your bridge, but hopefully the tree will be cleared soon and you can cross again.

Ooo Ali these pictures are so lovely! I love the lighting and the dark background- it really is fairylike! That cuff is definitely my favorite, it's so gorgeous. And you look stunning as always! I just checked out your art website and am amazed. Your textiles are so unique and totally awesome (I especially love 'Accumulus') and the rest of your art is totally cool as well!
