Happy Craft-o-ween! October 31 2014
Took the afternoon to make use of some scraps of kraft colored cardstock. (The leftover scraps from our Hope Clips packaging design.)
And bits and pieces found around the house -- another scrap of ribbon and a few clippings from a wild bush in the back yard.
I wonder what type of berries these are. Nature is beautiful <3
Today's creation: paper pumpkin centerpieces =)
Nautical Chart Jewelry COMING SOON! November 07 2013
First stop: Portland, Maine.
After a short stroll through the charming downtown area, we've arrived at our first destination, the Chart Metalworks studio in Portland, Maine. CHART specializes in creating stunning nautical chart jewelry pieces -- all made by hand, right here in Maine.
Each piece is carefully taken through the design, assembly and inspection process before leaving the studio. Here's a sneak peak of our tour:
So excited for our new addition to our Kismetry collection, and many thanks to the lovely, Charlotte for a wonderful visit :)
Cheers to women entrepreneurs out there <3
