Welcome to flaxccentuate!
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been a collector. It was always a mixture of rocks I’d found on the street or in front of a neighbor’s yard, as well as shells and sea glass along the shoreline. I’d never really had a purpose for them, I just knew I liked the way they looked and it was always something fun to find and bring home.
As I got older, I started to immerse myself in fashion and accessories — statement necklaces being my accessory of choice. I had big dreams of graduating and jet setting off to New York to work in the industry. However, college flew by and I diverted on to a completely different path. Being that it’s so different, I had felt that I was losing my sense of creativity. I was always trying to be very involved, have a social life and do well in my courses + my internship. I didn’t have the time I once did to write, read for fun, or create art. Once I graduated and started working full-time, this became very prevalent and it was all I could think about. So, I started researching and found a set of hobbies that would soon change my life — Metalsmithing and Beading!
As I’m learning all about these art forms and this industry — I’ve decided to create an outlet to showcase my work [which a few of my pieces can be seen above], life happenings, my findings and to geek out about crystals/gems/stones + more! Read the latest post here!
Speaking of geeking out … every other week I will feature my ‘Now it’s Crystal Clear’ series to showcase different crystals/gems/stones and all you could ever hope to know + learn about them! Check out the latest post in the series here!
I’m so excited to start this journey and bring together my love for accessories and nature’s beauty!
Thanks for joining me on this rockin’ adventure — you’re such a gem! 😉
