Philly Biz Ladies!

Thank you Grace, Joy and DWR for hosting such an incredibly informative and inspiring event! The guest speakers were phenomenal and I met some amazingly talented business owners! Check out a few:
Halligan Norris's handmade jewelry couldn't possibly be more unique or sweet! She is inspired by anything from French truffles to Harry Potter and has a love for all that is handmade. Loop designer Elissa Brown Barbieri combined her appreciation for nature with her love of modern design to create a line of earth friendly stationery! All products (including the gorgeous note cards above) are Forest Stewardship Council Certified and are made with post-consumer recycled content. Finally, Rust Belt designers Anna Bario and Page Neal create jewelry sourced from re-purposed materials using low-impact, environmentally conscious practices. The look is minimal and chic, and the best part- all jewelry comes packaged in re-purposed glass bottles! What a great idea!
