3 More Stores!

2014 is coming to a close... I had my best shows ever this holiday season. Thanks so much for all the jewelry love! Feeling extremely thrilled and a bit exhausted. Somehow over the last few weeks I've even gotten into a few more stores, which brings the total to 17(!!!) 10 of which are in Vermont. 

You can now find my work at Axel's Frame Shop in Waterbury. 
This shop is part frame shop and also a gallery and they have a growing section of local, handmade work. The wonderful owner, Whitney Aldrich has been trying to get my jewelry for several years now so it's great to finally make it happen. She picked a perfect selection of silver and brass earrings and a few necklaces. What a fun place to check out before heading to eat at Pro Pig! She curates group shows and solo shows so there's always something fresh to find there.

Some of the pieces she chose.

Heather Turnbull opened a very cool looking shop in Rutland this year called Pure.Original. She carries handmade and unique gifts from Vermont and beyond as well as funky rare vintage finds. She ordered some of my earrings at my last show which will soon be there and at her new shop, of the same name, that's opening in Killington this week! 
You can now find some of my more spiritual necklaces at Yogarama. The Chakra Kahn line is growing! 
When you're there be sure to pet this little muppet. Chloe!!!
It was so much fun to stroll by Spellbound and see my necklace on the mannequin in the window!

 Love seeing Kahn Man on display inside too. 

Stopped by Trinket too and they are running out of work so be sure to get it while you can! If you're a real down-to-the-wire shopper and you're looking for places in Vermont that carry my work... here's some other shops where you can find it:
The Shoe Horn - Montpelier
Stoweflake Spa - Stowe, VT
Common Deer - Shelburne
I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday and I wish you a splendid New Year. xo

Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide - 8 Gifts From $28 - $98

Here's 8 (GREAT!) gift ideas under $100. These range from $28 to $98 through $10 increments. Something for everyone! These are all still available in my Etsy Shop, just click on the link under each image to purchase. You can even use coupon code FREESHIP but orders must be made by tomorrow to get these by XMAS.
I also have ONE MORE SHOW! Find me and all your favorite BCA Artist Market vendors at City Hall in Burlington this Friday (4-8) and Saturday (10-6) for the Annual Holiday Artist Market.
1) For your Pop: Brass Keychain $28 - Great stocking stuffer! This features a kind of patchwork pattern which delineates the 14 Vermont counties. The VT letters are made up of my signature "patch" design. 
2) For your new Girlfriend/Boyfriend: Tiny Sterling Key $38 - This little key is a sterling replica of a vintage skeleton key. 
3) For your Daughter or Son: Tree Pendant $48 -This lovely piece features a tree on one side and a leaf pattern on the other. Wear it on either side, great for an "every day" necklace. 
4) For your Momma: Small Copper Crescents $58
Can’t go wrong with my crescents! The color on the copper is due to a Flame-patina, which is a spontaneous process and allows for an array of red/orange colors patterns, no two are exactly alike.  
5) For your Wife: Ring Holder Necklace $68 - This simple necklace resembles a horse shoe and serves as a ring holder. I had a request from a massage therapist, she wanted a necklace that she could hang her wedding ring from so she could have her hands free. Also great for pregnant women for when finger sizes change.
6) For Rockin’ Out New Years Eve! Large Silver Pendulum $78
They are definitely related to my crescent earrings but maybe somewhat edgier, flashier, a bit more dramatic, a modernized/ futuristic version yet still an Ethnic and tribal feel.
7) For Yourself? You deserve it! Sterling Ladder Necklace $88
This modern necklace is so edgy but so simple. Sleek, thick, hammered sterling is united by oxidized sterling chain. 
For a Good Friend - Gold Chakra Necklace $98
Chakra Kahn - healing pendants. There are 7 major chakras. Each one has specific associations with certain elements, glands, colors, gemstones and physical and emotional disorders. Each one is also related to a personality trait, which can manifest in positive or negative ways depending if it’s energy is balanced or imbalanced. 
24k gold fused to pure silver suspended from precious stone strand.

Holiday Gifts From Some Of My Favorite Women

Last weekend was an epic show for me at the 25th annual Women's Festival of Crafts, it was my best show over! I worked super hard getting ready for it and made a ton of work, I even had some back stock. 
I shared my space with Molly, it was her first show. So great to have her by my side.
She sold several of her fabulous rings and got many inquiries about custom orders. I love her display!
I had so much fun shopping for gifts and for myself! Here's some of the things I nabbed from some of my favorite artists and crafters.
Bought this felted feather garland from Carrie Root of The Root Studio. She had so many cute items at her booth.
Love this goat print and little sloth magnet from Nikki Laxar
Couldn't decide which wrist warmers to get from Nicole's Threads so I bought both. 
Bought these Batik flags for myself and others as gifts from Alison Parsons (she doesn't seem to be on the web but you can email her at parsonsaj@comcast.net)
I've been eyeing Heather Sterns pottery for a long time and I'm so happy to finally own a set of her gorgeous mugs. Her website is Muddy Creek Pottery.
I already own several Foliage bags from Tessa Valyou but I was drooling over her new ones. Got this tiny wallet for my business cards.

Love these rocks from Rebecca of Heartfire Henna.
Had to have this fun fake fur hat by Nancy Rood of GreatHat.com 
Lots of fab items, hope this helps you find some great gifts.
Oh and one more... 
Right now there's a Localvore Deal for half off a massage from Amanda Young - my favorite massage therapist. A perfect gift to give or keep! Happy Shopping!
