Yup! That’s Me!

A Muse. A Maker. A Lover of Design.

My motivation to create goes beyond artwork. I wanna make the best life for myself. I also pass on tips to help you make yours pretty sweet. I kind of do it in storyteller fashion. But that’s what makes it fun.

Do you get stumped by life’s curve balls? Embarrassed by certain songs on your playlist? Feel too weird for the weirdos? Hey now, we can definitely hang. This is a safe place. We’re cool as ish in here.

Let’s be Glorious, together.

You’ll find most creative outlets here.Otherwise I’m making stuff for the shops, doing freelance stuff or in the studio at Gotham Collective. Sometimes I work for the man to make ends play nice-nice.

…I had some no-good, horrible, very bad things happen this year so it may take me longer to respond to you. Please know I love that you took time to read. You can go ahead and “like” posts. It’s ok. That lil bitty button won’t hurt ya. Tag along for updates on the shenanigans…

  1. […] Glorious Mettle nominated EG for the Readership Award. I first noticed GM on other people’s blogs because she was so generous with her comments. She definitely deserves the Readership Award. Her blog is just as generous as her comments. Check out her incredible jewelry, artwork, and photography. Obrigado, Glorious Mettle. […]

    2. Which is your most favourite swear word? WHY?
    3. If you could punch a famous person, who would it be?
    4. If your food fell to the floor, how long before you consider it inappropriate to pick it back up and eat it?
    5. Is “mint” a legit ice-cream flavour? Do you like it?
    6. How are you feeling today?
    7. Do you think we will blow ourselves up? Or do you still have faith in mankind?
    8. Do you feel bad for “pluto” (the planet) ?

    Have fun with it!
