Etching metal with the Silhouette Curio. Leather and metal ID bracelets

Restroom moodboard for a his and hers commercial space

I’ve been MIA for the last few weeks fixing up my newly opened restaurant The Union Street. I really wanted to trail you all along the journey, but when you cram 10 million projects into a tight deadline of 14 days I rarely had a minute to pick up my phone to check on my […]
