About Sierra Bailey

Hey there, my name is Sierra Bailey! I am the owner & designer behind the jewelry brand Manic Trout, and a fashion & style expert. I really enjoy writing, am an avid reader, a fitness enthusiast and a jigsaw puzzle doer. I am also the dog mother to a sassy Rat Terrier, Faye and the wife to ex pro snowboarder, Adam Fujawa and a resident of Austin, Texas.

I began a blog in 2006 to share my adventures and thoughts and to show my work as a designer. This space has evolved into more of a lifestyle blog where I share my thoughts and adventures in life more than work. I however, enjoy sharing the trials and tribulations as an entrepreneur so you’ll find that as well.

Thank you for stopping by and I’d love to hear from you so please comment if you wish and for less public notes, you may reach me at sierra@manictrout.com!

    I love your blog as well as your designs. I was wondering if I could have your permission to use your firefly jar on my blog… I will give credit of course. Sincerely, Catherine Dougherty

      HI Catherine,

      Thank you! Sadly, it is not mine to give. You may use it as I did, but I do not have a credit. I found it on tumblr or we heart it.
      Best Wishes,

    Hello Sierra! I really enjoyed reading your blog and seeing your creations. I do like the mermaid necklace design you have featured this month. Good luck with your jewelry…I too am following my passion to be creative in life.

    I love your daily blog and wear your turquoise rhino all the time especially with animal. Prints which I adore. I may need your business cards cause when ever I am out people ask me about your necklace!

    Hi Sierra, I love your blog, too. Thank you for mentioning my first book, Life a la Mode. I wanted to let you know that I’ve finally put it up as an Amazon ebook (for $1.99).. I’ll work on getting Latte Lessons up next. Thanks for your nice words about it. What a great blog: jewelry and books. And creativity.
    Best, Linda
