Artisan Jewelry and Accessories
Find your next piece of jewelry among Mariposa Skies’ one-of-a-kind range of artisan-made pieces. The diverse selection features elegant gold and leather styles from Argentina, vibrant knot jewelry from Japan, bohemian beads from Bali, and many more beautiful designs.
Mariposa Skies was founded by travel enthusiast and fashion lover, Katy Schlegel. After honing her talent for sourcing ethically made, high-quality accessories during her travels, Katy decided she wanted to share her finds with the world while positively changing the fashion industry.
As fellow artisan jewelry lovers, we’re fascinated by the different techniques used around the globe. Visiting Katy’s shop is always an inspiring and wonderful experience!
From elegant hand-carved acacia wood bowls to intricately crafted Kenyan jewelry, Welljourn is filled with artisan-made goodies you’ll want to decorate your home with. The fair trade accessories and home decor pieces are ethically sourced from independent artisans from across the globe.
This online lifestyle boutique is curated by Tina Bar-On, whose life philosophy is centered on being well-read, well-traveled, and well-loved. Tina believes that choosing items with ethical origins will help create harmony within the home while encouraging self-expression.
We agree that ethically sourced, artisan-made items will complement a life well-lived, and Welljourn is one of our favorite places to find them.
The power of scent is undeniable. That’s why we love practicing aromatherapy with organic essential oils from AromaThyme.
Founded by Debbie Harlan, a massage therapist turned aromatherapist, AromaThyme is an online store and educational platform for essential oils. After noticing how significantly essential oils could improve her massage clients’ moods and enhance relaxation, Debbie experimented with oil blends. Eventually, she created AromaThyme to share her aromatherapy passion with the world.
We love AromaThyme’s comprehensive essential oil guide, which features oil profiles, recipes, and a tip of the day. Fellow essential oil lovers can also join the scent of the month club to always keep their collection complete.
Skincare For Sensitive Skin
Forshelli is our go-to brand for healthy, radiant skin. The small-batch products are vegan, eco-friendly, cruelty & petroleum-free, and suitable for sensitive skin.
What sets Forshelli apart from other skincare brands is its emphasis on overall skin health. Forshelli products are made with targeted plant-based nutrients that support the skin barrier. The ingredients are as unprocessed as possible for the best results and are inspired by traditional ayurvedic practices in Kerala, India.
The health-focused skincare label was created by Archana Johnsen, who was determined to find skincare that would appease her own skin issues. She used her engineering background, research skills, and desire for change to develop the perfect products for healthy skin.
Derived from a Norwegian phrase that means 'to make a difference' Forshelli is definitely living up to its name.
Gourmet Italian Treats
When we’re craving something sweet, we love ordering from Just Pizzelles!
Through inventive flavors and upscale packaging, founder Christina King Benton gives these traditional Italian cookies a modern twist.
Just Pizzelles has flavors for every taste, from classics like chocolate chip and vanilla to playful cocktail-inspired options like piña colada and amaretto sour, gourmet desserts like tiramisu and crème brûlée, and even savory tastes like beer nut, jalapeño, and buttered popcorn.
Christina wanted to use her passion for baking to make unique treats that encourage her creativity, and she’s done precisely that with Just Pizzelles.
Happy International Women’s Day!
