Sneak Peak...Wholesale Catalog

Suddenly realized I had to make my wholesale catalog right away and I've gathered up some wonderful local friends and customers to help a sister out. Can't believe how well the photo shoots have gone. I've been meeting these lovely ladies at coffee shops, eateries, their shops, their studios, their restaurants. They've met up with me on their way to the gym, on their way back from yoga, in the middle of painting, sewing, construction, in between sales at their shops. It's been crazy and amazing how quickly and seamlessly thing have been coming together. 
Here's a sneak peak of one of the pages. I just love the authenticity of all of it...real women, real friends who really wear my work in real places and aside from taking the time to do the photo we get to actually enjoy lunch, or tea, or a quick visit. It's such a nice way to see people during what can be a very cold/dark and isolating time of year. Most of the ladies, if not wearing their own pieces are wearing pieces very similar to what they already own of mine. I'm loving my new camera too, feeling very professional. Each day after shooting I work on the layout of the pages, add the close up jewelry photos and text. Can't wait to share it...for now here's what I think I'm going to use for the cover...what do you think?

New Wholesale Site!

I've been hard at work getting my wholesale line together...
Above is a sneak peak of my new wholesale shop... You can't really visit it without the password but here's the LINK

It's comprised of 6 of my most popular earring designs. Many come in 3 sizes and 3 metal options so that alone yields 35 pairs of earrings. It features close to 20 necklaces, my Chakra wraps and a few rings. All in all there are 65 pieces (some are featured in my new postcard above) and I'm so proud of putting this all together.
Now I'm focusing on getting select Vermont and New England shops to order for spring. If you have a shop or know of a shop that you think would be a good fit, please let me know (or please let them know!) and I'll pass along the super secret password. Over the next few weeks I'll be working on a catalog too. This is a big shift but I think it's the way to go...

Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Here's a sampling of some of my new work and some pieces that really just say "Valentine's Day". It's only a week a way! 
I've made several styles of bottle necklaces. One has 2 little herkimer diamonds and a blank scroll (where someone can write their own special note) and one has the word Love written on the outside of the rolled scroll so it can be seen. My favorite has a poem that I wrote across both sides of the scroll (see in above photo) and comes with 11 herkimer diamonds.
I love this little collection of items. I think anyone would be super excited to receive this as a gift.
Sometimes my work day includes strange things like tea and coffee staining little papers and burning the edges by candlelight (while drinking tea from my favorite mug).
I think the little bottle necklaces look great on display at Trinket.
Some perfect dainty V-day pendants: My Tiny Eclipse and Gold Leaf are 24k gold and pure silver and hang on strands of tiny pure silver Bali beads. There are matching earrings in my shop too. Here's the Love bottle pendant as mentioned above and one of my new Charmed pendants.
These are tiny and so special. They are great for just a little somethin' or as the top layer in a cascade of necklaces. They are reversible - 24k gold on one side, pure silver on the other on a tiny mixed strand of sterling and gold filled chain.
You can never go wrong with red for V-day. These are a new small version of my Pendulum Earrings (which are now available in small, medium and large.
This simple silver necklace has been very popular. Almost as much as my Ladder Necklace.
My new edgy raw quartz and brass necklace has been hard to keep in stock. I'm always happy to help you decide which piece is best for your special Valentine so feel free to drop me a line.
