I love the latest work from Bario Neal, the Philly-based jewelry design studio. All of their pieces are made from reclaimed precious metals and ethically sourced stones.
They have an online shop full of beautiful wedding bands, engagement rings, earrings, bracelets and pendants. They are also available for custom work.

New Ketubah just launched with a fresh site and some beautiful and cool new offerings.
I love Tsilli’s work–she brings a modern aesthetic to her ketubah designs but with some classy handmade elements, like stitching, polaroids or unique personalization. This design, In the Stars, is my favorite from the Classic Collection, but you should definitely explore the others. Not to mention, Tsilli is an awesome lady all around and runs Portland, Oregon’s Creative Mornings chapter.
The Green Vase, a floral studio and styling business based in Riverdale, NY, also offers beautiful handmade paper flowers from their online shop. Items range from single flowers for $38 to custom bouquets for $300.
Waimea Plantation Cottages are located on Kauai’s southwestern shore, beautifully situated just outside the tiny town of Waimea.
We spent a couple nights here on our trip last week. …sigh….such a sweet spot. Each cottage is unique, decorated with simple furnishings, incorporating some gorgeous vintage Hawaiian fabrics. Quiet whirring ceiling fans, airy kitchens, a claw foot tub. It’s semi-luxe but also really homey. And a great base for our time exploring Waimea Canyon and some western beaches.
Forgive the music on their website and have a closer look: waimeaplantation.com. The beach isn’t swimmable but there’s a nice pool overlooking the Pacific. The first six pictures are mine, the rest courtesy of Waimea’s site.
It’s always fun to see my work laid out at the event, a scene I don’t get to see until the photos are back.
Here’s the sea of pink watercolor escort cards that we hand painted and then calligraphed for a wedding this January, planned and designed by Eyal of Tessler Events, with Lewis Miller Design on florals, shot by Ira Lippke.
This Paperfinger menu was featured in the current issue of Rue Magazine. The story, “Magic in the Secret Garden,” was directed and styled by Lavender Joy Weddings (thanks Stefanie!) and shot by Ryan Ray. Florals by Bows & Arrows, dinnerware from Greta Bean. I’m so happy with how it all came together.

I’m very happy to share scans of the latest Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, Winter 2013. Two stories feature Paperfinger’s work in the issue and I’m excited to share the images with you.
