Two Fresh Collaborations

Collaborations with other artists, makers, stylists, models and interior designers brings us great joy here at bright star and buffalo...

it stretches us to work with other artists and makers - it inspires us to work with other stylists and interior designers and it often takes our breath away to see our work on other models or adorning the walls of their homes.

Our latest collaborative efforts have been with two beautiful women - Genga (of Spoke Woven) and Julia Canright.

Bohemian Bride: A Desert Love Story

When I met Michelle (mere months before her wedding date) I was immediately struck by how relaxed and effortlessly beautiful she was.  I knew that we had a soul connection and that I could design jewelry and decor that would speak to her essence on her special day.

She created a wedding full of creatively styled thrift store finds, one of a kind hand made items and special personal touches. She chose a location deep in the heart of the Southwestern desert. This day was truly an expression of who she is: kind, sensitive, eclectic, earthy, creative and free spirited.

The bright star and buffalo designs that graced Michelle's body and reception area are some of my favorite pieces ever created by this dynamic mother/daughter duo (Kelse and I)!

I am ever grateful for Michelle's smile and easy grace and I am honored to share a glimpse with you of this sacred moment, marriage and union.

Love to all!

Warmly,

Natalie
