Tracy Locke Castro
Fair Morning Blue
Before Tracy Locke Castro began Fair Morning Blue, she was a nursing instructor teaching public health to students. Struggling to find a way to turn her creative drive into a viable business, it took a life coach instructing her to “just go for it” (Thanks, Katherine!) to make her leap.
Jonelle Maira Jewelry
Jonelle Maira’s jewelry is the result of carefully selected vintage and reclaimed materials and her well-trained eye for what makes an eye-catching accessory. She’s been making jewelry since she was a little girl, and now as a woman with a daughter of her own, she’s sharing the results.
Daniella & Sandrine
Daniella Valerio and Sandrine Molnar know a thing or two about doing things by hand. From inside their Austin-based studio, they draw, screenprint and work on woodcuts with their four ink-stained hands. Monorail Studio is a labor of love and these printers wouldn’t have it any other way.
Good things come to those who sleep. That’s not really how the saying goes but it was for Mckenzie Santiago, who woke up one morning with the urge to create an all-natural men’s grooming line. Brooklyn Grooming Co. is the direct result of Mckenzie’s sweet (and productive) slumber.
Santa Monica, CA
Pamela Foeckler’s likes are many and varied — Icelandic folk music, 15th century Ukrainian churches, and Flemish paintings are among them. Drawing on that sparing northern aesthetic, her Natura Metallum pieces are both stunning and simple in their design and wearability.
