Spring is around the corner and it's time to start preparing for your gardens. Ginny creates whimsical clay garden decorations (think mushrooms, suns, butterflies etc). She also will have perfect homes to welcome happy creatures to your yard. Her birdhouses, bat houses, and butterfly houses are beautiful, tall and well made. How about a green roof bird house? A fun garden alternative that the birds are sure to love!
Delicate, feminine jewelry by Violet! Each piece is so pretty and made with carefully chosen pearls and semi precious stones. Violet uses traditional stringing methods and wire wrapping techniques. Her pieces can be layered or also stand alone in a striking, luminous way! These pieces are very wearable for a variety of occasions.
Ghyllian uses a multi stepped process to create art that satisfies her many passions: environmentalism, geology, photography and drawing. She takes photos in nature and transfers them onto wood. She then paints and draws over the photo adding stylized details. The work is finished with a coat of resin, protecting the wood and the image. These beautiful wall hangings, coasters and magnets are truly one of a kind. Check out our interview with Ghyllian HERE!
Lumen Naturae is a line of holistic vegan self care products made with plants and love! Irene makes products from herbal bath soaks to herbal teas. She infuses a lot of her own oils, using all parts of the plant in her creations. She takes extra care in creating teas and products that aid in self care and slowing down. When working on a project, her favorite plant to add to her a tea is holy basil. We can't wait to try. Check out our interview with Irene HERE!
Brianna creates functional housewares made from wood and burned with nature inspired images. The scenes she creates are incredibly detailed, realistic and beautiful!

RI local, Toni, creates the most beautiful vegan soap in all the land! She is inspired by "sandy beaches to lush green campgrounds, sweet fruit orchards to aromatic gardens". Each unique batch of vegan soap is mixed, poured and cut by hand with aesthetics and senses in mind. A lovely addition to your shower experience.
Beautiful dinnerware and housewares by Heather! Each whimsical piece reflects a healing energy. Part of Heather's process involves charging the clay with reiki energy.
