Yoga at the Weingarten

If you're only vaguely familiar with Belleville, Illinois, you might have heard of pumpkin-picking mecca Eckert's Farm, but right down the road is an equally charming, outdoorsy venue, centered around my favorite produce: wine!  The Weingarten in Belleville was the setting of a fabulous Yoga Buzz event, to which I was invited to set up a jewelry trunk show.  Think Adirondack chairs on the banks of a picturesque pond, surrounded by farm fields.  A fire pit for chilly fall nights, just steps from a charming old graveyard visible through a splintered wood fence.   The sun was setting behind the...

Shelter Pet Collection!

As the owner of two rescue cats from the Animal Protective Association (APA) of Missouri, I decided it would be fun to create some designs with adorable cat charms I found after hours (literally) of looking for the perfect ones.   Then it occurred to me that I could make a positive impact on shelter animals, while giving people a joyful reminder of their pets, through fun and meaningful bracelets they can wear whenever, wherever.  So the Shelter Pet collection is now expanded to include paw prints and dog charms.  Like my other designs, these are also made with gemstones...

Yoga Buzz St. Louis - Art + Yoga Event

Having the opportunity to positively impact people with my meaningful jewelry designs is truly the best feeling! Loved teaming up with Yoga Buzz to share my designs at this wonderful event, which included a rooftop yoga class overlooking the St. Louis skyline, followed by pizza from Pi (with vegan options, of course!) and sipping on beverages while browsing the works of local artists.  I was the only jewelry designer featured, and was so inspired by the other artists, who used creative textures and media in yoga-themed art.  If you've not familiar with Yoga Buzz, check them out! They host amazing...
