Shipping Tip Tuesday! New for Fall/Winter 2020

Here's more info that you ever needed to know about how shipping rates work, and why they vary across different businesses and regions. CANADAWith Canada Post, there are two types of domestic mail:1. Letter mail: usually for letters (lol not really anymore, just bills and spam), but technically if an envelope fits through a mail slot, and is lightweight, you can send via letter mail. A small, thin box is considered "oversized letter mail." "Oversized letters" are not tracked, and stamps cost about $3, plus the packaging has to be really specific - we need our pieces protected well, but still light and very thin overall. The packaging costs for these shipments is another $3 to $5. We've been mailing this...

Handmade Letterpress Winter Print - free with every $50+ order

Now more than ever, I figured we could all use a little more art in our life. I know that online shopping kind-of takes the fun out of shopping local craft and handmade. We really miss our regular craft shows, where everyone can feel and see the fine details that give handmade items their special qualities. With that in mind, I wanted to add something extra to my orders this November - just to get a little more handmade goodness out into the world, despite everything.To that end, I commissioned this print from illustrator + artist Kira Lodder, who worked up this lovely winter greenery design. Then the design was printed by Sara Froese, owner of All Sorts Press, a one-of-a-kind letterpress...

Introducing "Dawn" Collection

it's always darkest before the dawn A small, limited series of work made with dark, dramatic resin and fine metals. Released for Fall 2020, capturing dried florals in ethereal designs, set with fine 14k gold-fill and sterling silver.  I was interested in making a new series for fall (even though my last release was only in September), and just sort of found myself making these dark, moody pieces in the studio one day. In stark contrast to my usual bright blues and soft neutrals, these black & white pieces started to form into a really different kind of series. With Halloween right around the corner, these necklaces and earrings work really well as an autumn collection - but I think...

New Collection for Fall 2020: Elements

It's here! It's here!  Today I am proud to launch my latest series of work, titled "Elements." This is a new collection, with entirely new designs. "Elements" is a body of work showing off natural wood, paired with fine metals. Strong geometric patterns, complemented with soft, natural tones. When I started to work on this series, I wanted to accomplish three things: 1. Get back to the wood. This has tugged at me for a while. When I was sorting through my things for our recent move, the wood I'd accumulated over the years really grabbed my attention. I went through my entire wood stock, and I can still remember where and when I got nearly every piece. Reclaimed guitar...
