Our newest member - Brandi from Catie's Blue

Do you like colour? Do dream, eat, think and speak colour? And do you also love jewellery? If you do you have probably come across this blog - Brandi Girl. And if you haven't... well then, you're in for a treat.

Brandi is THE Goddess of colour. The woman can take two impossible colours and make them compliment eachother to the level where you can't ever imagine one of them being without the other ever again. You don't believe me? Well, check out her store - Catie's Blue - and see for yourself. It is absolutely jam packed with gorgeous jewellery made with lovely gemstones and lampwork beads, in colourful, vibrant combinations, yet still very, very wearable. How does she do that?? For someone like your's truly (who pats herself on the shoulder for mixing black and beige...oooo) this is knowledge close to quantum fysics.

In her own words:
"Color never fails to inspire me; it has always been a part of my artistic journey, always been a creative tool. What began with crayons as a child evolved into technical theater work in high school, then painting in college. But the idea to create jewelry didn’t fully form until I stumbled into a bead store on a 2007 vacation - literally, I tripped walking in.

When I straightened up and looked at the walls and tables full of colorful gems, something in me clicked. Seeing the possibilities of those shiny, sparkly beads lined up like a rainbow excited me in a way I couldn't ignore; I had to create with them, and I started that day. "
