Last night was the Butterfly Esthetics Winter Celebration Holiday Trunk Show, located at 1045 Water Street in Santa Cruz. I bundled up and headed down to see this work by three amazing artists. Laamsha Young, Michelle Stitz and Crystal Cristallo. As I walked up there was Asher Stern who was playing beautiful music, serenading people as they walked into this cozy spot. Peggy Humphries greeted me right away with a beautiful smile and a sexy glass of bubbly juice. As I looked around, I saw smiling faces trying on jewelry.
Crystal Cristallo's jewelry and purse/ bags are very unique and a great quality of work. I really enjoy the different colors that are used with the bags.
I first saw the work of Laamsha Young on a friend of mine, and it was great to get to meet her in person, she is just as sweet as her creations. Blank Verse Jewerly, check it out.
Michelle Stitz was plugging away, as one of my favorite Santa Cruz artists, I always enjoy seeing her and her work. She has a distinct color palette. The large necklaces she has are just like mini paintings that you or your loved one can wear. I have been following Michelle's work since I lived in Monterey, and I am still so delighted to see her progress. If you ever have the chance, you really should get yourself, or someone you love a Michelle Stitz original!
Thank you Butterfly Esthetics for a warm Trunk Show!
