earth + sky : a collaboration with satsuma press

i'm so excited to be able to finally announce the release of this special collaboration that i've been working on with sweet lynn of satsuma press! i've long admired lynn's gorgeous letter pressed goods, so i was thrilled when she approached me about the idea of a collaboration. i've taken her original feather illustration, cut it out of solid sterling silver, and paired it with a delicate clear quartz point. each necklace will arrive beautifully packaged on a card designed and printed by lynn, with a complementary birds of a feather letterpress card. we're both so pleased with how this has all come together, and thrilled to finally be offering it to all of you! just in time for valentines day, or just as a little mid-winter treat for yourself. hop on over to the shop and get yours here.


maker monday (special tuesday edition!): isabel dammermann

and we're back! ok, it's a day late, but hey, getting back into a routine is easier said than done sometimes.
i love the weight and utter simplicity of these pieces by isabel dammermann. they feel sculptural, and able to stand on their own in that regard, but i would also love to wear any one of them. a combination that can get somewhat elusive the farther you delve into contemporary 'art' jewelry. more isabel here.

in news a little closer to home, i had a crazy busy and wonderful holiday season. exhausting, for sure, but so fun to send so many little gifts out into the world. i took almost a full two weeks off for holiday break, which went by in a flash. i somewhat reluctantly rejoined the real world yesterday, and will be spending this week organizing, planning, and re-stocking the sad, depleted little website. i'm also excited about a couple things on the horizon in the coming month or two: i'll be releasing my spring 2011 collection in mid februrary, hopefully in conjunction with a new look for the website. new year! new things! can't wait to share them all with you.
