This is going to be a brief post, but I wanted to give a shout out to Barbara Minor and Christopher Hentz, two incredible artists I had the privilege to work with during my time in Italy. As you all know, I recently got engaged (hooray!). My future mother-in-law gave me her first wedding set and allowed me the creative freedom to transform the classic design into something unique to me. So, with the help of these amazing artists, Susie’s set was melted down and my design was able to come to life. I could not be more thrilled with the work Chris did and the impeccable piece I now get to wear. It is so special to know that I have something handcrafted and unique from people I love, and I am thrilled to have been able to put our money toward individual artists instead of a large company! There are so many amazing craftsmen and women who are out there ready to turn your ideas into reality— if you have the opportunity, support your local artists!! The results will blow you away.
