beautiful things from my new studio mates

Dang, I share a studio space with two incredibly talented girls.  

Jennifer makes so many beautiful rings that it's almost impossible to choose just one.  I'm so lucky that I get to see her new things in person before they've even been released.  I tried on the River ring the other day and snapped a photo.  I didn't want to take it off.

Shannon makes handbags out of recycled leather jackets.  She sells them at Barney's and through her own website.  I already purchased the one pictured above, and I'm in love with it.  The leather is incredibly soft and luxurious.  Sad to say, this is my first real grown up leather bag.  The style is called Balboa, and it's a brand new style so it's not up on the website yet.

On an unrelated note, I hired a summer intern today!  Liz is a fashion design student at Parsons, and she starts work at my studio next week.  I'm still taking resumes for fall internships.  E-mail me at jenny(at)wikstenmade(dot)com.
