My Work at The Stowe Craft Gallery

Really excited to have my work at the Stowe Craft Gallery. This is the start of a transition for me. I'm pulling my work into two lines. A higher end line consisting mostly of silver and a wholesale line - mostly copper and brass - (more on that in another blog post soon). It's nice to see my pieces on display here and I've been told many pieces have sold already. So if you're in the area check out this wonderful gallery - recognized locally and nationally for fun shopping, great service, and unique products.

Sweet Sweet Lady!

It's that time again - time for my annual Holiday Trunk Show at Sweet Lady Jane! This year will be extra special...
Such a funny top, that would definitely come in handy. I spent some time in the shop today with the lovely Erica and we styled  some outfits with my jewelry in anticipation of my trunk show.
As soon as I walked in I noticed this leopard coat and sequin dress, both by BB Dakota. Kinda want the dress for New Year's!
It paired nicely with my new Ladder necklace and my Reversible Stitched Crescent Necklace (shown here with the brass side up) and my new Charmed pendant (silver side up).
How cute is this little Free People cardigan? It has a reindeer design on each side and the back. Love the mustard color.
Erica layered it up with my brass Relic necklace (she owns one of them and says she wears it all the time!), my Gold Third Eye Chakra necklace and my sterling hammered Bar necklace.
This super cozy black Kensie vest on this grey flowy cotton Free People top was just begging for a little color.
We added my new Modern Tribe necklace, a reversible Stitched Crescent pendant (silver side up), my sterling Wishbone pendant and my new Charmed necklace (gold side up).
The store is looking super cute and festive, I can't wait to spend the day Saturday. Hope to see you there!

Heartfire Henna

I've known the fabulous Rebecca Freedner of Heartfire Henna for years now. Last year we even had a small studio in Burlington together. Now she's got a HUGE and gorgeous studio at 237 Main St in Vergennes, next to the lovely Vergennes Laundry coffee shop. There she hosts henna parties, women's gatherings, takes henna appointments and crafts henna products.
The space looks like it's out of a magazine. So well decorated, bright and inviting.
She serves a sweet and spicy chai that she makes herself. She creates at atmosphere of comfort and care that you just don't want to leave!
Then there's the HENNA! This design was so intricate and rich and the scent is beyond wonderful.
Our work goes so well together. We both have a tribal vibe going on. This is my Throat Chakra Pendant, Rebecca has this one in gold.
She makes these beautiful gratitude journals, I just love mine. Rebecca's gesture of line and curve are so amazing. She just free hands these complex and sacred designs. Truly magical.
She is now selling her chai tea blends in these sweet tins, she also sells her henna kits, her own blend of Morrocan hair oil, dyed silk scarves and new beautiful leather key fobs. My favorite are her lanterns, I have one and want another...
Rebecca will be at the Lake Champlain Waldorf School Holiday Fair this Friday and Saturday and we'll both be at the BCA Holiday Artist Market Dec 21st and 22nd. We are doing a trunk show together at a mutual customer's home this Saturday which we're both so looking forward to. 
She is carrying my Chakra wraps at her shop. I love the photo in the center of her henna hand with my Heart wrap. Check out her fab website and be sure to make a trip to her new studio, so many charming shops and restaurants in Vergennes, you can make a day of it!

Everyone Needs Some New Duds

I'm obsessed with this golden yellow/mustard color. I just made a necklace with these amazing hessonite garnet briolettes. I'm working on more sterling cuff rings with gold adornments. I'll have them in my Etsy shop soon.

Also, who doesn't love New Duds? An awesome couple makes up New Duds. Husband, Torrey, who draws, designs and screenprints. Wife, Tessa, who designs, cuts and sews. Most items they make are One Of a Kind, Limited Editions and Small Batches so grab them while you can! They make this quintessential Burlington Tshirt love the retro look. Tessa's bags are beautiful and so well made. I want the Golden Feather Tote and the small Feather Zip Pouch.  How great is the color of this Neckwarmer? Oh and they make Pillows too! Right now they are offering FREE SHIPPING ON ALL DOMESTIC ORDERS THROUGH MONDAY - Use Coupon Code : HOHOHO


You can find Tessa with her bags, scarves, accessories and cat toys this weekend at the Women's Festival of Vermont. So excited for this show, today will be a crazy day finishing everything up for it. Hope to see you there! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Girl About Town - with Nicole's Threads

These pieces from Nicole's Threads go so well with my jewelry. I want the Chevron Dress, perfect for any temp, easily layered and can be dressed up or down. I just love the print and colors of her Tribal Top. I own several pairs of her Leg Warmers (made from old sweaters) and I might have to get these too! She makes great button jewelry, Bobby Pins and accessories that are very popular and affordable. Check out her fabulous Etsy shop with all kinds of clothing, accessories and even housewares. She also has an amazing studio in the South end. All of her items are handmade by her and are either one-of-a-kind or limited edition.

We're so excited that our booths will be right next to each other at the upcoming Women's Festival of Vermont (the weekend after Thanksgiving). Workin' like mad till then!

Updating All the Things!

It's not easy to start bloggin' again after not bloggin' for a while... I am excited to start again and I figure the best way to begin is by just jumpin' back in.  From now on I'm going to shoot for at least one post a week. Topics will range from shopping local, other local artists and designers as well as those I love on Etsy. I'll post about my process and what I'm currently working on in my studio. I'll share my inspiration and ideas. I will also be creating a gift guide. I hope to start having guest bloggers too.

Right now I'm psyched about re-vamping things. I have a new font (yes I'm excited about a font!) and new packaging and I've updated/streamlined my Etsy shop, website...and now my blog!
I'm working 'round the clock to fulfill Etsy orders, keep Trinket stocked and get ready for my upcoming shows:


I'm working on new designs, like my Ladder Necklace which has been selling like mad!

Also new: Sign up for my Mailing List to be notified of upcoming shows and events and for exclusive offers.

That's all for now but there will be so much more soon...stay tuned. xo

Chakra Kahn on Kickstarter

I'm so excited to announce that I've started a Kickstarter campaign for my Chakra wrap bracelets/anklets. You can see it here:
Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform and every monetary pledge is met with a reward. I'm using it as a pre-order for the wraps so I can get these into yoga studios and shops across the country!

These wraps act as visual reminders to help you focus on whichever Chakra you’re working to balance. They can be worn as bracelets, anklets or even a necklace - just wrap it and tie it.

Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing crowdfunding platform, if my goal isn't met, the pledges don't get processed and I don't get any funds (and you don't get any rewards)! Please help spread the word! Thank you so much for your support! Positive energy all around!!!
