Here is a complete list of all of the events, from Middlebury, VT to NYC, and from November 29th to December 14th.  All of these events are open to the public, and I'll be selling all kinds of great holiday gifts from stocking stuffers to statement pieces, so I hope I'll get a chance to see you at one of these fun happenings!

November 29th at Clementine in Middlebury, VT 10:30-5

Next up will be the German Christmas Market at the beautiful Windham Hill Inn, on December 6th and 7th.  Saturday 12-5, Sunday 11-4. 
There will be local artisans, including myself, selling their work, and this is another great opportunity to shop local and support artists and their small businesses this holiday season! There will also be traditional wood crafts for sale from the Erzgebirge Region of Germany, as well as what will I'm sure be absolutely delicious German Food!  I'll be bringing lots of new work and classic favorite pieces, some of which you can see in the images below.  
Next I'll be making a whirlwind trip to NYC to do the second annual Holiday Flea Market at Huge in Dumbo, Brooklyn, on the afternoon of December 10th. I'll get you all more details when I have them as to hours etc.  I'm really looking forward to being back in Brooklyn for a couple of days, and I hope to see YOU, my Brooklyn peoples, while I am there!!  This event is also open to the public, so I hope you can make it!


And last but not least, my Annual Holiday Open Studio will be on Sunday December 14th, from 1pm to 8pm, here in Chester, VT.  There will be lots of great deals, some stocking stuffers, ornaments, and all kinds of goodies.  So don't finish all of your Christmas shopping before the 14th!  I'm sorry I couldn't do my open studio a little earlier this year, but as you can see my calendar somehow got pretty full.  But I will save lots of beautiful and one of a kind baubles for the 14th, I promise. 

Also, all of the work you see above, and some other new things, have been added to my online shop!  Click here to check it out!

New Work, Changing Rhythms, and The Weston Craft Show

I have really been enjoying making new work in the months leading up to this year's Weston Craft Show, which starts this Friday. I think the changing seasons, transitioning both kids into school or day care, and the general change up of the daily rhythms around here have fostered a great rush of creativity and inspiration.  I think it must be true what they say, change is, in fact, good!  Here is a little selection of some of my favorite new pieces which will be debuting in Weston this Friday.
I first made the earrings in the photo directly above, inspired by the little maple spinning seed pods, called samaras.  And it is such a fun shape, and so reflective of what I am seeing outside my studio window, that I was impelled to run with it, and now have a series of pieces incorporating and building on this fluttering hammered v-shape.  And I feel that there are still more designs to come, although I'm not sure what they will be yet!

The other direction this new collection has taken is in geometric and architectural bracelets, inspired by themes of varied symmetry and organic balance. 

And of course there will be the classic favorites to see as well, with lots of delicate geometrics intertwined with segments of chain and lots of mixed metal intricacy.  

I hope you can stop by the show this weekend!  It is a great place to support local artisans while you get a jump start on your Christmas shopping! And be sure to click on the link below to see the other wonderful Vermont Crafters who will be exhibiting. Here are the details:

Weston Playhouse, Weston, VT
Friday Oct.10 - Sunday Oct.12, 10am-5pm

Once the show is finished I will be working on adding these pieces to my website, so if you can't make it to the show please check out my site next week for additional info and pricing on this new work. Of course sometimes life has a way of intervening before I get everything listed, so feel free get in touch with me directly for how to order anything you see here.

Quiet House

These little rug rats are both off on their first full days at school today, and the house is very quiet.  This is the first time since Ellery was born that I am staring down the barrel of a full child free day, and I am feeling a little crippled by the openness of it.  Looks like I should have made a plan for myself yesterday.  Maybe a shower is a good place to start.  Then a to do list.
So I guess the baby-moon is over.  It's been a little challenging pushing back the wall of work that is waiting for me in my studio, so now I guess I can start chipping away at it.  It is a little daunting. Thanks so much to all of my lovely and patient customers for allowing me this time and space with my boys, but now it appears to be time to get back to it in earnest.

But wow is it quiet, and I'm missing these little faces. . .

Happy Half-Birthday To The Littlest!

One very snowy early morning six months ago today this little person came into the world.  A very happy half-birthday to you Ellery!  We adore and appreciate your sweet, soft, and fuzzy-headed baby-ness every day.

Favorites From Yesterday's Mother Daughter Photo Shoot For Rebecca Haas Jewelry


Here are some favorites from the fun shoot I did yesterday with my friend Krystina, owner of The Pear Tree here in Chester, and her daughter Aili, who's been my model for the last couple of collections.  I have been wanting to do a multi-generational jewelry shoot for a while now and I'm so grateful to Krystina and Aili for agreeing to do it! I'm going to use these photos in my booth at The League of NH Craftsmen Summer Fair (which is right around the corner!) and I would love to hear which one you all like the best? The winner will be blown up to poster size and mounted on the booth wall. . .
