White Elephant Palm Beach

We are beyond honored to be featured in the February issue of Palm Beach Illustrated as the venue of choice for pro golfer Michael Buttacavoli (instagram.com/mbutta326) and his fiancé Allison Guzy's (instagram.com/allisonguzy) gorgeous engagement getaway celebration 💍 Congratulations to the happy couple!

Palm Beach Illustrated's Daphne Niko (instagram.com/daphneniko) says "Anyone who’s traveled to Nantucket knows the White Elephant as a beacon of island hospitality. The same casual elegance and romantic by-the-sea vibe has been transplanted to Palm Beach with the opening of a 32-room sister hotel that’s every bit as chic and steeped in history." 🖤🐘

The issue is on newsstands now! Grab yours to read the full story and view more stunning photos.

Good words to live by...
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place”
-Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

The quiet, all consuming love portrayed in Pablo Nerudas’s sonnet XVII has always been a favorite of mine.
I first read this before any boyfriend lovey doveys but loved it!❤️
Through the the years it has remained a favorite and become all the more clear to me the more I learn about love.

Learning to paint with diamonds with the master!
💎
I am so thankful and honored to welcome Lesley Pyke as a guest speaker for tonight’s class to share her beautiful 3D engraving style and answer questions from our up and coming pros. It’s not just liquor and perfume bottles anymore, we are preparing our students to make true works of art, with inspirational teachers like Lesley dropping in to show what is possible with this amazing form of expression.
Lesley has been engraving glass since 1983, initially 19 years in Zimbabwe and presently in Suffolk, UK. Most of her work is commissioned and she is known for her work for royalty.
Even though we are remote learning our live experience classes make for the best learning environment when we can’t be together.❤️

I wanted to take a moment say that I’m thinking of all of you, I pray that you are well and have enough to get by during these uncertain times.
Life looks a little different right now. However, slowing down, reflecting and reconnecting may be just what our hearts needed.
All of my in person classes are paused for now but I am reopening my online class for anyone who wants to join. I will also be expanding my repertoire of classes and hope they can help us feel a little more connected to ourselves and each other. 💕

I had never heard of Gasparilla until @titosvodka started sending me to Tampa a few years ago to engrave bottles.
I’m glad to once again be here for this amazing pirate festival before heading to L.A.!

I am excited to announce the publication of my book, Modern Engraving; a hands on approach.

This is the first book of its kind to teach calligraphy based engraving, breaking the learning process down into simple, easy to follow steps.

A comprehensive guide for the pointed pen calligrapher to take their skill to the next level and develop your very own modern engraving style. Not a calligrapher, no worries; the book guides you through the process of glass engraving from the beginning steps to finished project. Modern Engraving is the companion book to both my online and in person Modern Engraving classes. Available soon on Amazon.com.
