He’s also a world-renowned jewelry designer.

Welcome to my tongue-in-chic happiness lifestyle blog from a princess point of view! Today I’m excited to share the next adventure in my series for a wonderful life: #ENCHANTING DISCOVERIES…PEOPLE, PLACES, THINGS! In this post I interview talented jewelry designer and entrepreneur, Jen Ecklund-Bistline, founder of ViaLove Designs. I first discovered (and fell gaga over) ViaLove Designs when one of my dearest girlfriends gave me a piece from the ViaLove collection for my birthday. (Photo of me wearing it inside…woohoo!) I wanted to see more where that came from! ViaLove creations have a romantic air about them that’s evocative of past eras which resonates with me because the jewelry feels regal, as if a long ago princess commissioned them! You won’t want to miss Jen’s interesting story, the inspiration behind the Old World feel of her collections and a peek into her creative process and FUN FACTOIDS thrown in as always just for…well…the FUN of it!

I’m Princess Diane Von Brainisfried and it’s a joy to welcome you into my kingdom where positivity rules and kindness reigns! Today I’m excited to introduce to you a new series that I will periodically post on my blog called #Enchanting Discoveries – People, Places, Things. These posts will feature fascinating people, interesting places, and wonderful things that I discover down my journey on the path of life…and off the beaten path! I couldn’t be happier to kick off this series by making your acquaintance with the truly enchanting artist Lisa Finch. As a matter of fact, I was inspired to use the word “enchanting” for my new series because I felt like I stepped into an enchanted world when I serendipitously discovered her artwork on Etsy. I’m happy to share the following interview in which I got to know Lisa a little better and to give you a peek into her magical world. Read on to discover for yourself the enchanted world I fell in love with through artist Lisa Finch. ….CLICK on the TITLE to continue….
