About the BobieBee owner:
Ashley Lastres has always had a creative mind – whether baking, cooking, playing music, or playing around to find new artistic techniques. She finished college with a degree in Fine Art, specializing in Graphic Design. Several years ago, Ashley stumbled across a lapidary class offered at the local Chicago Park District and learned how to cut and shape stones, as well as basic metal working. After honing her skills at her kitchen counter workbench and perfecting her polishing skills using a drill press fitted with polishing cloths, she opened the first of her Etsy shops, MultiFacetedByAshley. Fast forward a few years, now she has an actual jewelry work bench and tools and continues to design jewelry. Her favourite (and also a shop favorite) is a rose cut minty green moissanite bezel set in sterling silver.
Head here to purchase one for yourself. Isn’t is stunning!
While Ashley loves making jewelry, she also enjoys lots of other art such as painting, mixed media, and of course digital art! While spending time at home during quarantine, she needed to feel productive, and decided to put her creativity to use and start the BobieBeeBoutique on Etsy. This shop focuses more on painting and digital art, ranging from hand-pained watercolor rainbow cards (a shop favorite!) to fluffy tassels, digital files that can be used on cutting machines, and even some darling baby bodysuits. Most recently, Ashley has been collaborating with Jazzy Ferguson, an alcohol ink artist from Australia, to create digital prints and that are available as instant downloads in the BobieBeeBoutique. Despite living across the world, Ashley and Jazzy really enjoy working together and have been really successful at creating unique pieces of art together.
