Baggallini Trunk Show

baggallini_blog

Please join us on Saturday, November 8 from 12 – 4 pm for a special Baggallini Trunk Show. 

Baggallini was developed by flight attendants frustrated with bags that were stylish but dysfunctional, functional but clunky, or just badly made. What they created is nothing short of exceptional and Utopia is proud to be carrying the line.

Our rep, Cherilyn, will be in to showcase all the new styles and colors and answer your questions. As always, we’ll make it a party and you’ll get to sample some of our yummy new holiday goodies!

Carla Pennie McBride Artist Statement:

Nature stirs my imagination.  I am both a collector of natural artifacts and an observer of the natural world, I seek to explore the beauty and delicacy of nature, translating the delicate patterns I see into the work I create.

I love to experiment and push the boundaries of contemporary jewelry making.  In my most recent work, I am drawn to the nebulous, yet static qualities of plastic resin. I freeze pieces of silver, traces of paper, leaves of gold and other minuscule fragments, capturing their essence in time.  I design and individually create each element of every piece by hand and all can be rightfully considered one-of-a-kind.

Marlene Bolotsky creates unusually bold pieces enriched with ethnic origins. A piece of bone, a bit of glass, or an ancient coin enhance and highlight her elegant designs.
