Hi! I’m Carlie Vergamini, owner of Crave Jewelry.

“I’ve been making and selling stuff ever since I could hold a crayon for the first time and mix a pitcher of Kool-aid…”

I’ve been making and selling stuff ever since I could hold a crayon for the first time and mix a pitcher of Kool-aid, but I had never imagined it would get me to where I am today. I am the creative force behind Crave and a strong advocate for following your dreams— I’ve even got a bumper sticker to prove it.

“In high school, I made it known that I’d make a name for myself in the fashion world…”

I always knew that I wanted a creative career and I am so thankful I had decided to pursue fashion over clown college. In high school, I made it known that I’d make a name for myself in the fashion world, but university and internships exposed me to some harsh realities, which made working under someone else sound much more appealing. As graduation rolled around the corner and the right opportunity for a big girl job never showed up, I took my future into my own hands and created my own job under my own terms.

Leveraging the skills and techniques I acquired from around the world including insight from the Queen’s English leathersmith, I have created pieces that are each individually hand cut and meticulously pieced together to create not just another “thing,” but a luxurious, leathery, and limited edition statement.

Introducing GoFloat: Unique Beach Inspired Jewelry

Hi, I’m Danell Bachrach, creator of GoFloat Jewelry!

I juggle multiple titles daily. I’m a loving wife, mother of four angels, and an avid creator. I find that when I am creating, my life feels more balanced. My family and I have bounced around living on different islands and in various coastal areas due to my husband’s work. We’ve been from Georgia to Hawaii and currently reside in Half Moon Bay, CA. I had always been looking for something fun and special to send to my friends and family so they could experience a little bit of our everyday lives. I quickly discovered I could make my own unique gifts for them, which essentially gave rise to GoFloat. It’s so fun to put together little collections of nature that I can send off for others to enjoy.

“I am in love with the uniqueness each of my items possess…”

 

Each piece is made by me and overseen by my little crew (aka, my kiddos). They often sit at the work table with me, creating little handmade masterpieces of their own. I am in love with the uniqueness each of my items possess and enjoy sorting through the elements I’ve collected to get each one just right. As a mother, I love including my children in the business side of things and teaching them the excitement of being an entrepreneur. They are so curious about the business, asking numerous questions every time they watch me filling orders.

When I’m not making jewelry, I enjoy baking- mainly with chocolate, keeping up with family and friends who we’ve made through our travels, and just simply soaking up the sun with my family. There is never a dull moment at our home.

The Streets of Tanasbourne Mall

The Streets of Tanasbourne Mall

Let the renovations begin!!! Behind this barricade (notice the cute white door), is the birth of our new location at The Streets of Tanasbourne in Hillsboro, Oregon!  Let’s just say it’s been months of hard work on everyone’s part to get it to this point. Making the decision to close our Half Moon Bay, California store this February, was a tough one. I loved that little store, but I knew it was time for the business to move on.  Never in a million years did I think our next stop would be amongst the big box stores! Yep, we are next to Macy’s. People ask me all the time, how do you do it all? I don’t and if I do, I don’t think about it. I run on my passion for what I do, lots of hard work, decaf coffee and cookies. I also have an amazing support team!  I couldn’t do it without them and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I’ll be posting all the stages of this renovation right up to the Grand Opening!!!

Reindeer Chow For Santa’s Reindeer

Reindeer Chow! Since so many of you are feeding Santa’s Reindeer this year, I thought I would post a recipe that would give them a little boost of energy to hit all those houses! Maybe they might even bring some leftovers back to the elves for all the hard work they did wrapping presents and making toys this year! Click on the link to the Brown Eyed Baker blog for the complete recipe. http://bit.ly/1vDJkzi
