We do customized gift packages upon request as well. Basically we started off with jewelry and went from doing simple earrings to learning how to wrap semi-precious stones in silver wire to create pieces. Eventually we drifted into purses- then clothing and now we have a bath and body collection that is handmade by us from natural products such as oatmeal and mango butter.
Basically all that we sell has been handmade and 90% off it is created by us in the store though we do work with other designers when the opportunity presents itself
Emily is working on a contract we have with Noblesville City (where our store is based)- to start offering classes through the Parks and Rec. office. We are starting off with an Introduction to Jewelry Making as well as a Cuisine and Culture Course. We are also working on making sure our website is up and running so that people can shop with us irrespective of where they are in the world. Lastly, Gina and I are collaborating with various organizations/ charities and individuals who want to be representatives and sell our Bath and Body Collection. The charities will use us to fundraise while the individuals want a second source of income that is not too time consuming or that works with their already busy schedules.

Our collection is also more affordable in comparison to most handmade natural bath and body products- this is a goal we have always had. For instance our oatmeal exfoliating soap goes for 89c per ounce. You can also customize your order. For instance we recently had a customer request that the next batch of oatmeal soap have a little more oatmeal since his skin type needed it. We were more than glad to do this since everyone skin works differently. I imagine if you walked into your regular store and asked for your bar of soap to cater to your skin type- you most likely would not get that request fulfilled. We are trying people with the understanding that we are all different- but each of us needs customized attention.
If you have ever had a piece of jewelry you loved that fell apart- then our jewelry class is for you. Once you are done with the four week course- you will be able to do simple repairs as well as make a few jewelry pieces for yourself and as gifts.
Our Culture and Cuisine class is an opportunity for the city dwellers to share their various heritages with each other. You not only get the chance to learn how to make dishes from various countries but also learn more about that part of the world. We are working with a local liquor store, Mr. G's Liquors to possibly offer some Wine's/ Beers etc from these countries we will be teaching about.
However if you do find you are interested in our pieces do get in touch and we'll be sure to find a way to work with you and get our creations to you.
