This Cville panoramic was inspired by and made for the lovely, Erin McDermott! We met in Charlottesville and have bonded over many a late night glass of wine discussing the ups and downs of following dreams, running a business and life as a ‘crazy’. Erin’s success as a jewelry designer has been an inspiration as I’ve seen her labor tirelessly and passionately, perfecting her craft.
She’s not afraid to share her stories, the good and the bad, that go with the territory of putting yourself out there. Vulnerability would best describe the feeling of showing your work to the world and the anticipation of its reception by the critics among us. When ‘Grow Your Own Roots’ was just a sketch and Skylight Studios was merely a thought, Erin was the first cheer leader on board and has been a faithful supporter ever since. Erin McDermott jewels are a must have and her blog is not too be missed! Without further ado my dear, Merry Birthday, Happy Christmas New Year’s, and with all my love…just after Valentine’s Day!
