Day 15 of #marchmeetthemaker Motivation/Goals... so many different things motivate me to make jewelry and continue with my business. I love what I do and because I have been doing it for so long it has become a part of me. I can not imagine my life without making things. I am also motivated to make things when I buy new supplies or I dig through old supplies and find something that sparks an idea. These bracelets were made with stamping blanks and wood beads that I have had for so many years and I love how they turned out. I am also motivated by the excitement of sharing my work with other people and the thrill of selling my jewelry. It is such a huge compliment when other people want to purchase something I have made. As for goals, I want to rebuild my Etsy shop and sell more there again and I would love to have a few stores buy my work wholesale but that is more of a long term goal. . . . #meetthemaker #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #stretchbracelets #stampedjewelry #gemstonejewelry #handmadeisbest #creativehappylife #etsyshop #jewelrydesigner #jewelrymaking #lulidesigns #woodbracelets #handstampedjewelry #braceletstack #jewelrylover #natureinspired #amazonite #woodjewelry #madeinvancouver #madeincanada #springstyle #vancouverfashion #sobestfriendsforfrosting #bohojewelry #bohostyle

It has been so beautiful and frosty in the mornings. My daughters think it is the most magical thing and I love seeing how much joy something as simple as this gives them. . . . #magicalmoments #frostymorning #winteriscoming #natureisamazing #natureinspired #childhoodmemories #wahmlife #lifewithkids #parenthood_moments #parenting #momentsofmine #frosty #lulidesigns #westcoast #westcoastlife #pnw #pnwonderland #picoftheday #nofilter #nofilterneeded #vancouver #yvrlife #yvrlifestyle

New stamped charm stretchy bracelets with gemstone and wood beads. I have been thinking about making these for a while and finally had some time to do them. These, along with all my new creations will be at @craftyaffaire Market at Harris Barn in Delta in exactly one weeks time! . . . #gemstonejewelry #gemstonebracelets #handstampedjewelry #makersgonnamake #sterlingsilverjewelry #beadedjewelryofinstagram #handmadejewelry #jewelryforsale #lulidesigns #makersmovement #bracelets #stretchbracelets #vancouver #jewelrydesigner #yvrevents #craftyaffaire #craftshow #handsthatmake #westcoast #westcoastlife #natureinspired #charmbracelets #oceaninspired #jewelrywithmeaning #saturdayvibes #made_in_yvr #madeinvancouver #madeincanada

What a fantastic show Etsy Made in Canada was this week-end! Thanks so much to the amazing @briteup_etsyyvr team for putting on this great event. I am so pleased to have been part of a show full of so many talented vendors and I have already resigned for the 2019 show! . . . #etsycananda #etsymic #etsymadeincanada #etsyvancouver #etsysellersofinstagram #shoplocal #handmadeinvancouver #myvancouverlife #craftshowlife #shoplocalvancouver #vancouvershopping #lulidesigns #briteup #briteupetsyyvr #vancouver #yvrevents #grateful #handmadejewelry #etsy #vendor #thatsdarling #flashesofdelight

It is Friday and it certainly feels like fall. Time to pull out the fall jackets and scarves will not be too far away. Season transitions are always difficult for me and clothes as I get so used to the clothes from the previous season. Focusing on layering is probably the best way to go so today I wore a tank top, jean jacket and then dug out a necklace and earrings I had not worn in a while. What are your favourite outfits to wear in transition seasons? . . . #fallfashion #floralinspiration #amazonite #gemstoneearrings #pnwwonderland #ihavethisthingwithflowers #botanicalpickmeup #scarfweather #sweaterweather #yvrstyle #fallstyle #bohojewelry #falloutfits #earrings #handmadejewelry #handmademovement #jasmine #flowerstagram #floraljewelry #gemstonejewelry #hellofall #botanicalpickmeup #lulidesigns #petitejoys #thatsdarling #falljewelry

How was the first day of school for everyone? My oldest is a sensitive little one and that can be hard to navigate with change. She wants to start adjusting to her new teacher, classroom and classmates but the system here leaves it up in the air possibly for the whole first week. This is hard for a little one who is already sceptical about school. Parenthood certainly throws more challenges at you than I could have ever imagined. . . . #parenthoodmoments #yvrlife #momlife #childhoodmemories #children #parenting #parentingchallenges #parentinglife #firstdayofschool #crochet #crochetjewelry #crocheted #crochetedbracelet #lulidesigns #creativelifehappylife #layeredbracelets #bohojewelry #bohostyle #pink #makermama #mamamoments #thatsdarling #makersgonnamake #wood #handmadejewelry #lulidesignsjewelry

These floral earrings are part of my prep for the @sunshinecoastarts Hackett Park market that is this week-end. The weather is looking good for my only outdoor market of the year but I do have many more indoor markets coming up in September-December. Check my website for a full list of upcoming market dates or send me a dm for list. #floralinspiration #craftfair #sunshinecoast

Crocheted wrap bracelets in my favourite colours. I love layering these with macrame and gemstone bracelets. They make a wonderful bracelet stack for summer. #braceletstacks #crocheted #wrapbracelet

I went for a run for the first time in far too long...however my toddler wouldn’t sleep and insisted on coming with me and of course it started to rain. I managed to power through 4.3km at a decent pace while pushing the running stroller. Such is a mum’s life. These earrings are newly listed in my Etsy shop and I thought they were appropriate for tonight’s story because of the raindrops. #runningmama #momlife #runningmotivation

Itty bitty and oh so sweet. These bracelets are adjustable and look so great layered together, with other bracelets or just one simple statement of the bracelet on it’s own. #keepitsimple #simplelife #simplethings

This custom bracelet I made for a dear sweet friend who is a runner. The bracelet was inspired by a tattoo she has and a mutual love of running. The charms look extra amazing on top of her tattoos! #runningmotivation #runninginspiration #friendship

Wearing one of my favourite combinations at the moment... my granny’s bracelet and a crocheted piece I made in a beautiful dark teal. I will have a few crocheted pieces at @makeitshow Vancouver at the PNE which starts this Friday. #makeitshow #braceletstack #jewelrywithmeaning

Moonstone - “A stone for “new beginnings”, Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. It soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilises the emotions, providing calmness. Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters.” #moonstone #moonpower #gemstonejewelry

New earrings with some pendants that I am pretty excited to have found. Part of what I love about making jewelry is finding new components to incorporate into my pieces. Should I make more like this? I am also thinking they will look great at the bottom of a pair of hoops. #newdesign #bohochic #lulidesigns

These are my second pair of earrings using the new square stitch bead weaving technique. Do you think I should make more? I made three pieces the same as the first one I made a mistake and one bead was wrong. Oops! I was much more careful after that. #beadweaving #beadedearrings #modern

Day 17 (a day late) of #MarchMeetTheMaker - Customers & Feedback... my business would be nothing without all the lovely customers I have met over the years. I appreciate every customer so much. When I look at the amazing feedback I have received on @etsy it reminds me of why I do what I do. It is so wonderful to hear when a customer is so happy with their purchase. I always do a happy dance when I make a sale and then I do another happy dance when I receive feedback! These sterling silver and bead stud earrings are a customer favourite. #lulidesigns #happydance #etsyshop #smallbusiness

Yesterday I took another class at @countrybeads and learned a new technique that I am totally hooked on... square stitch. I can see so many possibilities with this and I will definitely be working this into my designs once I have had a bit more practice and maybe made a few more pieces for myself first! #squarestitch #beadedjewelry #newobsession

Snowy day and sparkly crystals go so well together. There is just so much snow that came so quickly and I think there is still more to come. You can find these earrings in my etsy shop. Check my profile for the link. #snowday #earrings #sparkly

These earrings are a classic style with clear crystal and white pearls. They have been a staple that I have made for years and they will never go out of style. #pearls #timeless #swarovski

Amazonite continues to be my most favorite gemstone. I don’t know what it is but I am always drawn to it’s color and it always looks great with other earth tones. What is your favorite gemstone and why? #macrame #lotusflower #gemstonejewelry

These are my all time favorite earring style that I have ever made. Total labor of love with so many head pins for every pair but absolutely worth it when they are finished. They are light weight, have beautiful movement and are simple and delicate as well as being such a great statement all at the same time. I am hoping to make more variations on this style coming soon. #bohochic #sterlingsilverearrings #festivalstyle

Definitely feeling like there are not enough hours in the day at the moment. So many things I need and want to do and create and just not enough time. I am trying to emphasize on the things that I do accomplish and carve out time for things that make me feel good but aren’t necessarily things that have to get done. This year I am trying to focus a bit more on self care but also making sure I am more present in the moment with my kids. This is definitely still a work on progress for me. This necklace most definitely makes me feel good. #gemstonejewelry #bepresent #workinprogress

For some reason, on this grey rainy day, I am having some writers block so this will simply be what it is...Here is one of my pretty macrame bracelets that can also be worn as a necklace. What do you think about this style? Should I make more? I was also thinking the design would lend well to being made into a single strand anklet as well. What do you think of that idea? #macrame #itiswhatitis #writersblock

Rose Quartz is the love stone and these sweet little rose quartz earrings are the perfect gift to show someone that you love them or as a gift for yourself to show a little self love. Never forget it is important to take care of yourself as well as the people around you. #lovestone #selflove #gemstoneearrings

I am so excited about our new house plant and pot that we got at @ikeacanada. The only thing is that I am terrible at keeping plants alive. Anyone have any tips on how to take care of this plant or know what type of plant it is? I picked it because I liked the shape and you will be seeing a lot more of this plant in my Instagram feed because I love it and find it so inspiring. Shown with my @tofinotowelco in collaboration with @gentlefawn round towel which I love! #houseplant #plantlove #plantkiller #tofinotowel #roundtowel #gentlefawn #neutrals #inspiration #inspirationinnature #ikea #bohostyle #bohodecor #homedecor #homeiswheretheheartis #happyhome #happy #mamatime #lifewithkids #creativemama #lulidesigns #arrow #homefashion #ilikeit #momentsofmine #greenery #plantlife #raincouver #yvrstyle #thatsdarling

Such a beautiful day today. Sunshine, self care (I got a manicure which I never have time for) snuggles and hopefully skating too. Today is also making me extra inspired to start working on some new designs as some new crystals arrived (you can see them in my Instagram stories) and I also order some new materials which is always inspiring! #inspiration #selfcare #sterlingsilverjewelry

On the eve of the New Year it is a good time to think about the exhausting year it has been. Lots of ups and downs in my personal life and the beginning of building up my business after things were slowed down for 6 years after having two kids. I am happy to say good bye to 2017 and looking forward to 2018 and all that it may bring. I know 2018 is not going to be perfect (as life never is) but I feel like it is going to be a good year. #2017bestnine #nye2017 #bestnine2017 #vancouver #westcoastlife #yvrmoms #lifewithkids #myvancouverlife #goodbye2017 #bringonthenewyear #momentsofmine #lookingback #lotsoflikes #lulidesigns #jewelry #jewelrydisplay #tbt #macrame #selfie #earrings #sterlingsilverjewelry #family #friends #happynewyear

Turquoise with a feather. This one is definitely special and looks great on it’s own or with a stack of bracelets. I know some people are going to receive these feather bracelets for Christmas presents as I sold quite a few during holiday market season. #feather #turquoisejewelry #armparty

Show season might be over but people are still contacting me. This bracelet is going home with someone tomorrow who bought a few other pieces from me at a show but regretted not getting this one from me as well. The macrame bracelets were so well received this holiday season so I think I will use some of the new year down time to make more. They take about 2 1/2 hours to make but turn out so lovely so I will keep on making them! Are there any color combinations you would like to see? #macramejewelry #gemstonejewelry #bohochic

New chevron necklaces with iolite and moonstone. I had these chevron pendants for a while and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with them. Glad I waited to use them as I love how they turned out. They will be available at Deck the Hall Fair at @heritagehallvancouver this week-end. #chevronjewelry #gemstonenecklace #newdesign

Make It Vancouver is coming up soon so I thought I would tell you a bit about myself...As a child, my mum and I made jewelry together out of telephone wire. My love of jewelry making continued which led me to start Luli Designs in 2005. I make my jewelry in my home studio and sell my work online and at local craft shows. My pieces are made with wire wrapping and beading and recently I have added woven leather, macrame and stamping to my designs. I live on the west coast and it is such a beautiful place. The beach, ocean, animals and trees inspire me when I am creating my jewelry. Raising my two young daughters is how I spend much of my time but making jewelry is how I like to spend time to myself and I find it very relaxing. Being creative is part of me and I use my jewelry as an outlet to share it with others. #makeitvancouver #makeitshow #iamamakie

Small Business Saturday... Shop small and make a big impact. It is always such a thrilling experience to have someone buy a piece of my jewelry and I am sure most people don’t realize how big an impact their purchase makes on my small business. Thank-you to all who shop small. #shopsmall #smallbusinesssaturday #shoplocal
