Coming Soon: The Providence Collection!
Our sixth collection took us to Providence, Rhode Island. When we visited Providence, we got the impression that it's a classic New England town filled with Georgian, Federal and Victorian homes. The architecture may be classic, but the people and atmosphere are funky and artsy, so much so that the city brands itself the "Creative Capital." To showcase this contrast, we're designing artwork with clean lines and lots of rectangles, neutral cream and tan, mixed with lemon yellow, emerald green, and tons of texture.
A little bit about us...
WHO WE ARE
Three friends from art school who decided to pursue our artistic passions as a group. We meet regularly to discuss, critique, and encourage each other. Christine is our jeweler, Bethany is our potter, and Julia is our fiber artist. For more information on our lives and work outside of Navona Handmade, check out our biographies below.
WHAT WE DO
Take a short trip together twice a year to someplace new and inspiring, and create a collection of jewelry and home decor based on our experience. Yes, we built a business around taking vacations together, and we think we’re pretty clever. From these trips, we gather inspiration for the color palette, patterns and textures that guide each collection. After we come home, we take a few weeks to process, brainstorm and sketch. Then, we meet up and decide how we’re going create a cohesive collection that still represents each individual artist’s memory of our trip.
