The vivacious Shelbi Lavender loves to focus on the smallest of detail and combines delicate chains with unique charms, pendants, semi precious stones and pearls. Her pieces can be worn individually for a chic simple look or layered to make a bolder statement. They are extremely versatile and can be worn for both casual and formal occasions. All of the designs are handmade and, while most are produced in very limited quantities, some are one of a kind.

Tomas Howie is a fabulous painter based near Indianapolis, IN. His portraits and divine, and landscapes particularly breathtaking. I have one of his landscapes hanging in my studio and I just love looking at it every day.
