January main kit from Studio Calico.
The concept of Studio Calico began long before it was a reality. In 2000, while working at a local scrapbook store, April developed an appreciation for innovative supplies along with a respect for preserving memories. Thus, the concept of combining fresh products with non-traditional scrapbook supplies emerged.
At Studio Calico, we hope to encourage the creative process by providing the best supplies on the market as well as a community that is supportive every step of the way.
In the past 2 years we've grown from an idea, to a small boutique of sorts, to manufacturing our own products. As we've grown, we've stayed true to the basics, while looking to the future.
In addition Lisa is offering a discount for readers. Enter "myword15" for 15% off your purchase.
Here's a bit about Lisa and her business:
California girl and young mom, Lisa Leonard decided to start her small
jewelry business five years ago, she had no idea how things would take
off. With a fresh perspective and an artist’s heart she set about
making jewelry that could not be found anywhere else. Her
hand-stamped, sterling silver jewelry is setting the trends and is
loved by women all over the world.
Her hand-wrought creations have been featured in several
national magazines, such as Parenting Magazine, Pregnancy Magazine,
Victoria Magazine and Wondertime. Online outlets are singing the
praises of Lisa Leonard Designs, including Cookie Magazine and
Glamour.com. Celebrities also love her line, including Josie Bissett,
Jason and Naomi Priestly and Jennie Garth.
Each piece is hand-cut, hammered, stamped, polished and
drilled with care in her California workshop. You’ll find the perfect
gift for a friend, grandmother, sister or of course, yourself! And
don’t forget dad or baby. Lisa offers custom keychain and baby spoons
that will warm the heart.
