I’ve been making my “Modern Relics” since 2008 and now I feel like I’m pulling my own designs forward, simplifying them, and making them even more contemporary and wearable. It's been such a joy to put these together. There's something for everyone and every price point!

I’ve never made an entire collection before. I generally, slowly try out new ideas, one at a time. A few years ago I launched such an idea, my Chakra Kahn Wraps with Kickstarter and they were successfully funded. It enabled me to begin to see how to really grow my business. It was a way to dip my toe into the pool. 

Last year I developed my wholesale line and got into 17 shops. Over the past few months, my goal was to design a line of killer necklaces that would really “wow” buyers and round out my line.

Now I’m taking a leap! My first wholesale tradeshow - NY NOW (formerly the NY International Gift Show) at the Javits center this August. Taking on this enormous show is diving into the deep end of the pool!

In return for your help getting me to this next level, you'll get these pieces before stores and at a discounted price!  Plus this would be a great way to really debut this new line and properly launch it into the world! The funds gathered will help with the production of the line, right here in Vermont and help to fund the costs for doing such a huge trade show. The booth fee alone is $6000, then there's the cost of the display and set up, travel expenses, catalogs, advertising… eek!

Onto the REWARDS!!!:::

I'm offering some combos for several rewards at even deeper discounts. Stock up for gifts or for yourself! If there's a combination you want that I don't have, just let me know.

I’m moving into my own REAL studio in the South end in June. I’m hoping to have a kickoff party there as well as have the whole line on display. Locals might even be able to pick up their rewards at that time.

Please help spread the word! Thank you so much for your support!  Find me on ETSY and FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM and TWITTER.

Super thanks to Barika for letting me use their beautiful song "Bamana Ke"off their album Rise in my video!

Risks and challenges

Since I've done this before and know what it involves I feel confident in getting the rewards out in a timely fashion just as I did last time.
