My Work Featured On BohoBunnie's Blog!

So cool to live vicariously through my jewelry that ventured out to the beautiful Andrea Whitt aka BohoBunnie in LA. She took it with her to Coachella for a fab photo shoot with her photographer beau Justin Zangerle aka ShutterandCutNot only does Andrea run her hugely successful BohoBunnie fashion blog but she's also a musician (she recently toured, playing fiddle, with Shania Twain!) artist and model. I just love her style and their photos. Here she's modelling my sterling spear pendant, my carved sterling v and my brass relic necklace. You can view these on Kickstarter -- >  HERE

New Photos of Modern Relics 2015

My Kickstarter campaign is off and running and almost half way to my goal! You can view the Kickstarter HERE! It's been so amazing to see the response to these pieces. I feel like a kid in a candy store being able to choose which piece or combination of pieces to wear on any given day. I love how they feel like armor; like badass-warrior-goddess-jewelry. These really fulfill the intention I had to make strong, bold necklaces and to pull this ancient feeling forward to modern times. I've been enjoying doing little photoshoots with all these new pieces. Here's what I've got so far...

I'd love to hear your thoughts on my new line! It's been a long time in the making. You can read more about this collection and see more photos HERE.

New Collection: Modern Relics 2015 available for pre-order on Kickstarter!

You can view the Kickstarter HERE! Please help spread the word! Thank you so much for your support! 
I've been making my "Modern Relics” since 2008 and now I feel like I’m pulling my own designs forward, simplifying them, and making them even more contemporary and wearable. It's been such a joy to put these together. 
I’ve never made an entire collection before. I generally, slowly try out new ideas, one at a time. A few years ago I launched such an idea, my Chakra Kahn Wraps with Kickstarter and they were successfully funded. It enabled me to begin to see how to really grow my business. It was a way to dip my toe into the pool. 
Last year I developed my wholesale line and got into 17 shops. Over the past few months, my goal was to design a line of killer necklaces that would really “wow” buyers and round out my line.
Now I’m taking a leap! My first wholesale tradeshow - NY NOW (formerly the NY International Gift Show) at the Javits center this August. Taking on this enormous show is diving into the deep end of the pool!
In return for your help getting me to this next level, you'll get these pieces before stores and at a discounted price!  Plus this would be a great way to really debut this new line and properly launch it into the world! The funds gathered will help with the production of the line, right here in Vermont and help to fund the costs for doing such a huge trade show (booth fees, booth set up, travel expenses, catalogs, advertising…)
I’m moving into my own REAL studio in the South end in June. I’m hoping to have a kickoff party there as well as have the whole line on display. Locals might even be able to pick up their rewards at that time.
