In honor of Small Business Saturday I thought it would be fun to share some of my personal favorite independent makers and brands. Turns out there are way too many to fit in one post, so I'm breaking it up into themes, and will spread them out over the next few weeks. (Because every day is a good day to support small businesses, not just today) This one is filled with nature inspired whimsy and wildness, and each and every one is on my own personal wish list. Tap the image to link to their IG feeds, or follow the link in profile for direct links to all of their websites. ✨#smallbizsat #handmadeisbetter #shopsmall • • • • • • • • • #giftguide #makersmovement #thisismycommunity #communityovercompetition #mycreativebiz #creativepreneur #thatsdarling #rsindieshop #natureinspired #naturegirl #sheexplores #optoutside #wanderfolk #ladypreneur #wellmade #ohwowyes #cylcollective #foundmademodern #plantspiration #themountainsarecalling #supporthandmade #creativelifehappylife #wishlist #musthave #dslooking

How are you spending your Small Business Saturday? We took a wandering drive through the Vermont countryside up to our friends @twopotters in Bethel to check out their open studio sale. Bought some pots, saw their amazing wood fired kiln, and ate homemade apple crisp in the November sun. It's always such a treat to see someone else's workspace. A very satisfactory way to spend the morning. ☀️ • • • • • • • • • • • #vermonting #darlingweekend #smallbusinesssaturday #smallbizsat #ilovermont #rslove #thatsdarling #makeyousmilestyle #makersmovement #shopsmall #buydifferently #buylesschoosewell #thehappynow #Creativelifehappylife #wearethemakers #cylcollective #wellmade #contemporarycraft #madeinvermont #vermontartist #lifeofanartist #supportmakers #craftsposure #handmadeloves #exploretocreate #creativespace #homeinthestudio #thisismycommunity

The Boobies are available!Thanks so much for all of your comments and suggestions a few days ago. I was nervous about listing something so sort of risquΓ©, but I'm so glad you all encouraged me to do it. The charity I decided to go with is @bcrfcure which is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the US. So you can support boobies and science! What's better than that? And as a special kick off, for the first 24 hours I'll be donating 60% of the purchase price of each order. (Which will go down to 40% afterwards, or I'll go broke) So buy early and buy often 😍. Because not only is it a great cause, these necklaces are ridiculously fun to make, and make me smile the whole time.

I went out exploring today to look for props to use in this month's newsletter. How pretty is this fall foliage? Seed pods, a couple of quince, peony leaves. It's a rambling collection of shapes and color. If you'd like to see the finished product there is still time to sign up before I send it out tomorrow! I only send one a month, so it's not a big commitment of inbox space, scouts honor. This month you'll get a heads up about the dates for this year's holiday sale, as well as upcoming events, my favorite recipe for apple pie, and other various fun holiday happenings. And when you sign up you'll get 15% off your next order! Sweet!

Momentum Necklaces are starting to flow out of the studio! This design is kind of a departure for me, so I'm thrilled that it is getting such a positive reception! Currently it comes with Navy, Dark Chocolate, or Caramel suede. I have to order more leather today. Any other colors you'd like to see? #acolorstory #makeyousmilestyle • • • • • • • • • • #rebeccahaasjewelry #thehappynow #craftsposure #handmadeloves #craftcircle #handmadecurator #seeingthepretty #WowEtsy #Differencemakesus #Createcultivate #Bigmagic #handmadehappy #craftandfolk #foundmademodern #minimalove #geometricjewelry #minimalfashion #handmade #handmadeisbetter #etsyseller #etsywholesale #modernmaker #contemporarycraft #minimalfashion #slowcraft #slowfashion #designmilk #creativehappylife

These new Arrow Swing Earrings were part of the last site update. Did you see them? I've only made one pair so far, and they were snapped up right away at my last show. They looked sooo good on the woman who bought them, who had shoulder length jet black hair. I wish I had taken a picture, but it all happened so fast. . . Luckily I did take this picture and a couple others before they sold. Check them out through the link in profile. • • • • • • #bohostyle #shoulderdusters #arrow #arrowjewelry #geometricjewelry #minimalist #seekthesimplicity #simplestyle #inspiredbythis #craftsposure #bedeeplyrooted #craftspire #handsinframe #makersmovement #differencemakesus #ohwowyes #ardentfinds #prettylittlethings #jewelrygram #earrings #makersvillage #hellohandmade #thatsdarling #thehappynow #pursuepretty #Jotd #jewelryaddict

I saw this inspiring quote in my feed this morning about how essential it is to always strive to keep learning and growing. And as I thought about how great it is, I realized, for this briefly halting moment: Dang, I work alone. So I'm always the smartest, and also definitely the dumbest, person in the room. But then I realized, I have you guys! And that's why I rely on you so much to be my sounding board, my inspiration, and sometimes my much needed reality check. So it turns out what I am saying is THANK YOU, because I could never do this without you! With the whole internet as my community, I'll never get complacent, and opportunities to learn are infinite. It makes running a business out of the back woods of Vermont a whole lot more dynamic. Community now comes in many forms, and rooms have no walls. πŸ’ͺ❤️πŸ‘Š (Attribution: I believe this quote originated from @justbobbibrown ) • • • • • • • • • • • #thisismycommunity #lifeofanartist #communityovercompetition #mycreativebiz #girlboss #ladypreneur #theeverygirl #Thatsdarling #makersmovement #thehandmademovement #creativepreneur #Creativelifehappylife #creativityfound #smallbusiness #calledtobecreative #inspiredbythis #creativehappylife #verilymoment #cylcollective #designermaker #handmade #gratitude #mondaymusings #inspiremyinstagram #craftspire #bedeeplyrooted #vermontartist #todaysvermont

What do you guys think of this tiny version of the Mima Teardrop Necklace? (It's the one on the top) A customer special ordered it, and I think it's super cute! Should I add it to the shop? I especially over how it layers. . . • • • • • • • #layeringnecklace #handmade #makersmovement #inspiredbythis #handmadeloves #handmadecurator #differencemakesus #etsywholesale #pursuepretty #postitfortheaesthetic #delicatejewelry #Makersvillage #Hellohandmade #Thatsdarling #Thehappynow #Craftsposure #Jotd #Darlingmovement #Theeverygirl #Abmhappylife #Oneofthebunch #Bohobrides #Bohowedding #homeinthestudio #Flashesofdelight #Mindtheminimal #Modernmaker #Chooselovely #Creativehappenings

Ok, I am pushing myself to make another video this week, and if I say it out loud to all of you I'll have to follow through! 😜 I am currently trying to decide between the following two video topics, and I'd love to hear which one you all find most interesting: 1) Tips on what to use and how best to polish your jewelry or 2) An explanation of what gold fill is and why I use it over gold plate or gold vermeil. So if you'd let me know in the comments that would be awesome! Also feel free to write in another subject if you have a suggestion. Thanks!! • • In this pic: The new Filament Earrings that are now available on my website! Another one of my faves from the new group of designs. . . • • • • • • • • • • • • #creativityfound #vermontlife #todaysvermont #madeinvermont #fallfashion #geometricjewelry #makersmovement #homeinthestudio #mycreativebiz #bestmadehandmade #handmadeloves #wearethemakers #thatsdarling #handsandhustle #craftsposure #dscolor #foundmadenodern #inspiredbythis #capturemycraft #theartofslowliving #seekthesimplicity #slowcraft #handmade #etsywholesale #geometric #modernmaker #calledtobecreative #girlboss #ladypreneur

It was a good birthday. I spent a very unscheduled day sitting in the sun, eating good food with family, walking around with my camera, and felt very loved. ❤️ I reconnected with friends and family on the phone, appreciated everyone's birthday gestures for what they were (my kids gave me nails, and a rock?🀷🏻‍♀️) and I even took a little nap. Usually I fill up my birthdays with social events, but I think a day of nothing is the real luxury for me these days. Thanks so much to all of you for the birthday love. You are the best. ❤️Xoxo. • • • • • • • • #nothingisordinary #darlingweekend #thatsdarling #verilymoment #theeverygirl #ilovermont #vermonting #inspiredbythis #optoutside #sheexplores #rsa_rural #pursuepretty #livethelittlethings #abmlifeissweet #makemoments #momentsofmine #lifeofanartist #vermontartist #chasinglight #todaysvermont #creativityfound #bandofun #vermontbyvermonters #vermontlife
