I first met Kelsey in 7th grade where we became instant friends. We went to school dances together, bunked together at camp, went ice-blocking on private property, stuffed our bras with the same box of kleenex... We spent our weekends at Beads n More making jewelry (Kels made her own Fimo clay and knew how to attach the clasps with pliers) and our school days passing notes back and forth in class (hers always had waves on them) and when I think of Kelsey I literally LOL because that is who she quite literally is: A blue-eyed laugh out loud. Also, here are some photos I found of us shirt-sharing. (Remember those days?)

Kelsey studied print-making and worked in Florence for several years, made clothes, sold clothes, made jewelry, sold jewelry, traveled, met an amazing man, married him, worked hard, and stayed consistently true to her heART.

...And today, I'm proud to present some of her work. Behold the beautiful:
My favorite, though, are Kelsey's custom-made cuff bracelets, the perfect gift for those of you who want to share a message with a loved one:
il_570xN.540983584_24d2 custom etched cuffs - $60 

Kels will write anything from names to vows, song lyrics, poems, personal notes of love, inside jokes, words of wisdom, inspiration, healing for friends dealing with loss or unwanted change... 
(My aunt gave me a Kelsey bracelet for Christmas that is etched with inside jokes. So good.)

Not only are the cuffs genius, they are made with love by this amazingly wonderful (hilarious) woman:
Who used to be an amazingly wonderful  (hilarious) girl.
