Lainey is on Instagram!
This is the first time in 47 years that I have not been madly preparing for holiday show. Usually the first weekend in December is preceded by advertising, polishing the jewelry and my home/studio, setting up intricate displays and shopping for flowers & party snacks. Do I miss it? YES! Do I feel relief? YES!
With deep gratitude, custom jewelry orders have remained strong the past nine months, keeping me focused in my workshop. I’ve taken the guidelines for social distancing/quarantine to heart. It’s an opening, an invitation to slow down, focus keenly on each order, and communicate my designs clearly through drawings, words, and videos.
Be sure to check out @ElainaDesigns on Instagram for videos that feature pieces from the Green Door showroom. My lovely Ithaca friends and clients model my jewelry while I describe the source of the gems and the trace elements that give them their color and vibration. My showroom is full of jewels that can be browsed online or in person. Visit my website elainadesigns.com or call me at (678) 662-6156 to make an appointment for an in-person visit or a virtual tour. I still gift wrap and will ship to you within two days, doing whatever I can to keep your holidays bright and loving.
David and I hauled our first self-sawed Christmas tree in support of local farmers in Trumansberg, NY. It was quite an adventure! I captured photos of the Beaver Moon penumbral eclipse and walking under the moon in winter light reminded me of these earrings and necklaces that have the same ethereal quality.
Leaning into heavenly beauty this holiday season, and hoping the same for you wherever you are.
