Yeah, you may think “Amy, isn’t it a bit late to be talking about winter?” Nope, we had a snowstorm warning just last week. I tell you, this winter almost broke me… but being the hardy Minnesotan that I am (ha!) I just wiped away my tears of despair, picked up my shovel and trudged on. And then I made more jewelry.
Enough about winter – it’s one of the excuses reasons that I’m going to use for why I have been blog silent for so long. I may have been silent, but I was not dormant. Here’s what’s happening for/with/at Amy Cousin Jewelry.
ACJ at Artist’s Market
Amy Cousin Jewelry has been selected to participate in the Springboard for the Arts artist pop-up at SpringBox on Sunday, May 5th from 10 am to 5 pm. This is the first live event I’ve done in a looooong time, and I’d love to see you there, if you’re in the Twin Cities area.
It also means that all items in my website shop will be closed from May 5th to May 6th.
HipSilver features Amy Cousin Jewelry!
I am proud to announce that ACJ’s Upcycled collection has been picked up by HipSilverand that my Motherboard pieces are featured in the Mother’s Day Collection. HipSilver, based in New York, is curated by Gail Bruce for men and women of the silver generation, connecting them to products, ideas, and inspiration.
Oops, I forgot to get a gift for …
Did you forget someone on your gift list? I still have some pendants available in the $35 to $50 range, including a few Upcycled Computer pendants and Rose Quartz & Prehnite pendants. Prehnite’s shade is in the range called Greenery – which is Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year – so you’ll not only be giving someone a wonderfully healing gemstone combination, you’ll also give them a jump on fashion.
I read that somewhere… This year, I’ve been sharing my take on gemstone energy in a lot of places where women especially are seeking answers and solutions. Just this week, Amy Cousin Jewelrywas featured in Mind Key, an online community of healing professionals, in an article written by my good friend, Dr. Lisa Avila.
Color me confident and calm… by tapping into the vibration of blue gemstones. Which ones, you ask? I wrote an article for Black Girl In Omwith some beautiful suggestions.
Every home should smell this fantastic…
I am so happy to announce that our Sirius Mind and Body incense sticks are back in stock! It has been a long wait, but well worth it – the fragrances are as phenomenal as our alcohol-free fragrance oils, and each stick burns for over an hour – no bitter smoky after-scent either. Just the way you remember them.
I’m super excited to participate in this event for a number of reasons:
It’s a fantastic event – family friendly and lots of fun – with a wonderful focus. The artists and vendors address social justice issues through poetry, food, song, art, soap, jewelry, etc. And admission is free.
This will be my first in-person event since we closed the shop (over four years ago), so I am really looking forward to connecting with you face to face!
I’m launching a new line of jewelry from my Upcycled Collection at the Twin Cities Social Arts Festival. This is a collection I’ve had in my head for a long time, and I can’t think of a better setting to share it with you. Here’s a hint:
If you’re in Minneapolis I really hope you attend. And if you are planning to attend and want me to bring a specific ACJ item (or even a specific SMB oil), please send me an email and let me know. I will tuck it away for you. That’ll save you shipping costs if you pick it up in person.
Okay, it’s back to the studio for me.
Have a great day, and I hope to see you on November 5th!
