Hi! I'm Kelsea, a girl in her twenties living in the Greater Seattle Area. When I'm not making jewelry or blogging, I'm most likely browsing Etsy, dreaming about desserts, snacking, hugging my whale shark or alpaca plushies, reading, or working on a project.

I love experimenting with new crazy hair color combos and I change it up every few months. Inspiration finds me everywhere... I am usually bursting with ideas! Things that frequently draw my attention include: gems, graffiti, cake, predatory animals, cute dresses, and rainbow sprinkles. By self-restriction, I am only allowed to own plush animals... it's better for everyone that way. =)

I've been getting back into reading, lately. As kids, my brother, Corbin, and I read constantly. Over the years, I stopped making time for reading, but I've started reading again and reviewing books! I primarily read fantasy novels, so if magical worlds are your thing too, feel free to send or ask me for a book recommendation (via message or add me on Goodreads)! Here are a few of my favorites:

The Lies of Locke Lamora
The Hero and the Crown
Mistborn: The Final Empire
The Hero of Ages
The Way of Kings
Words of Radiance
Daughter of Smoke & Bone

I previously blogged at Pink Wonderland, and while I had a lot of fun with it, I decided to start fresh with a blog that better fits my personality. (Read more about it in my intro post!) The focus of Kels Shark is to feature the talented indie artists and shops I discover, share my creations, and provide inspiration to my awesome readers. Plus, by sharing my ideas with you lovely readers, maybe I can save my boyfriend, Tal, a little bit of hearing about every one of my crazy ideas and projects. Heh, mayyybe. I am working hard on reopening my online jewelry business this year, so you'll be hearing all about that too!

I also have a minor ongoing side project: convincing Tal that we should both change our last names to be (... wait for it...) the Sharks (!) when we get married a little while down the road. He's not quite convinced yet. But hey, if that doesn't work, I'll still get to be Kels Shark over here.

Thanks for visiting!
