Featured in Vermont Vows/ WellWed Magazine!

Vermont Vows/WellWed magazine has been one of my favorite bridal publications since I first discovered it after moving to Vermont several years ago. Not only do their four magazines (for Vermont, the Hamptons, the Cape, and New York State ) showcase some of the finest bridal vendors and real weddings in New England, they are beautifully designed and gorgeously curated (even the advertisers are hand-picked.) So I was extremely excited when I received a note from the editor last fall requesting some of my designs for a photo shoot!
WellWed/Vermont Vows Magazines Spring/Summer 2012

The Spring/Summer 2012 issue, on newsstands now, has nearly 30 pages of swoon-worthy bridal fashion inspired by the sea, and I was lucky enough to have several of my jewelry designs included in the spread, which is found in all four of their publications.

Here's a peek at a few of my favorite images (click to enlarge):

And these two photos show the model wearing my Aiglentine Bracelet and Lys Earrings paired with a sparkly Lo Boheme hair ornament...

A big thank you to Krista, Mia and all of the lovely staff at the magazine for the wonderful opportunity! Be sure to check out the WellWed website to see their blog full of wedding inspiration and to order a copy of the latest issue.

Scenes from the Studio...

As I mentioned last week, I recently have been working on a small group of jewelry designs that will be on display at the  Frog Hollow Gallery.  The designs are on display for the month of May. Here is a selection of a few of the pieces that are available...

gold, magenta and lavender silk textile earrings
{Framboise Earrings | Raspberry and Lavender Silk Earrings with Pink Quartz} 
The Framboise Earrings are a continuation of my new line of jewelry featuring handmade textile beads of silk and real metal threads.


The Fleur de Citronnier set was inspired by lemon blossoms...
{Fleur de Citronnier Earrings | Lemon Quartz, Prehnite and Peridot Earrings }
{Fleur de Citronnier Necklace | Opera-length Necklace with Lace Pendant, Lemon Quartz, Peridot }
The necklace features a gold and silver lace pendant with a base created using the punto in aria or "stitch in air" technique, a needle lace method dating back to the Renaissance.
