Elysian Studios Invited to Etsy Pop-Up Shop Event at West Elm Denver Cherry Creek | Elysian Studios



I’ve been invited to set up an Etsy Pop-Up Shop 

at West Elm in Denver Cherry Creek North 

this Saturday from 12-4pm!

What an exciting opportunity to showcase my original paintings and handmade jewelry in the beautiful, modern setting of West Elm-

It will be a great match! 

West Elm has made an impressive commitment to directly support artisans that use handcrafted techniques in their work.  Read more about their handcrafted stories.  I am so proud to be a little part of that story, and to have a national company with such a wonderful reputation support my handmade business.

Take a look at some of the fresh products West Elm is offering in their catalog this month:





Beautiful, isn’t it?  Their store is lovely, especially set in the quaint Denver neighborhood of Cherry Creek North, which is bustling with all kinds of gorgeous galleries and home design shops.

Come down this Saturday, January 11 from 12-4pm and say “Hi!” I’d love to meet you there!

Elysian Studios Featured in The Polymer Arts Magazine | Elysian Studios


I’m very proud to announce that one of my original art jewelry bracelets has been published in

The Polymer Arts Magazine Winter 2013 issue!

The Silk and Stones bracelet was chosen to be featured in The Polymer Jeweler’s Workbench: Creative Clasps Make for a Classy Closure article.  The Polymer Arts is a magazine for jewelry artists, and is full of inspiring articles about technique, emerging artists and art business.  I highly recommend this magazine for artists working with polymer clay.  The Polymer Arts is not available on newsstands, but both print and digital issues can be purchased online at 

Here is a look at my bracelet featured in the magazine:


The Silk and Stones bracelet has been purchased, but you can see what bracelets are currently available in the Art Jewelry Bracelet section of the Elysian Studios online shop!

I will continue to work with polymer clay, adding unique and original components to my handmade jewelry designs.  Look for new additions to the shop in the near future!  In the meantime, I’ll be exploring new techniques that I am learning from The Polymer Arts Magazine!


Elysian Studios at West Elm Denver January Etsy Pop-Up Shop Event | Elysian Studios


It was a fun Saturday afternoon in Denver’s
Cherry Creek Shopping District last Saturday when Elysian Studios had a Pop-Up Shop inside West Elm!

West Elm values handmade products and the small businesses that create them.  Every month they invite local artisans to come into their store to share their products. I was able to display my original paintings and handmade jewelry, and connect with new customers!

Enjoy a photo tour of the event:

It was a lot of fun, and the staff made me feel right at home in the store.  I hope to have the opportunity to join them for more Etsy Pop-Up Shop events in the future.  I will be sure to keep you posted if I do!

Having my shop set up like this is a special treat, but it is always available online at where you can shop for original art, handmade jewelry, prints and note cards.  Shop anytime, from anywhere!
