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!
