Ana Davis is a fine artist by education who got her feet wet in the professional world at a children's book publisher, where whimsy and playfulness filled her days (and her heart) for many years. The result is a traditionally trained painter with a well-honed eye for fun. Ana's patterns are inspired by architectural details and vintage elements. Humor peppers her work, as do flowers, bunnies, and rainbows.
In addition to her fabrics, gifts, and home decor products, Ana develops bespoke products. Ana lives with her family (one husband, two sons, and three pets) in Oak Park.
Chicago-based maker and designer Danielle Stotts was inspired by her grandmother, Mary, to study metalsmithing and create the Marigold Mary line. By combining modern and vintage materials, she is able to produce a distinct convergence of past and present. The pieces are minimal yet memorable and are made from recycled brass, 14k gold filled and sterling silver metals paired with vintage glass and natural crystals and gemstones.
Motivated by her urban environment, an appreciation for geometry and love of vintage heirlooms, Danielle's pieces are made to be layered and worn every day. Each necklace, bracelet, ring and earring is hand crafted in her Chicago studio with a focus on comfort and ease of wear … whether that is with jeans or a little black dress. Using traditional metalsmithing tools and techniques, Danielle favors matte finishes and unique textures. She loves using new hammers, anvils and mandrels to create distinctive patterns and shapes. She crafts each piece so that it is functional and practical, but also beautiful. She appreciates that the expression of each wearer is a statement of their individuality and hopes that her understated pieces become personal style staples.
