bright-side-jewelry-co-gift-guide
The holiday season is officially upon us so I thought I'd kick it off this year by witnessing some of the magic that my friends, clients and inspiring humans in my orbit have put out into the world lately! 
I have watched these creatives pour their heart and soul into their businesses and it is my honor to share them with you! You're also able to shop almost my entire inventory online through Friday.
 
Happy Shopping xo

All The Bitter - Ian and Carly Blessing
Lavender Chamomile Bitters

 I've been lucky enough to try almost every single flavor they've released as they were my first playing client with Bright Side Photography Co. and I must say it made my heart REAL happy to see the Lavender Chamomile flavor earn a place in the permanent lineup. FUN FACT the Lavender used is from the Lavender Ranch in Biggs, CA which is about 30 minutes down the road.
Treat yourself to the BEST in the industry!
Pssst. Help me in congratulating them on receiving the No/Low Spirit Producer of the Year at the International Wine and Spirit Awards & making the front page of our local newspaper!

Shine Design Customs - Jessica McKnight 

Ornament of Joy: Share the Spirit of Christmas

My sibling is an amazing creative and all around inspiring human - she has multiple businesses, both creating incredible home decor as well as teaching courses & supporting other creatives when their businesses reach a point where they are thriving, serving as their Online Business Manager. She is the founder of the SHINE KINDNESS PROJECT - which is no surprise, because her entire business is a labor of love with the desire to uplift others. 
She'll be using the money from this ornament to spread Christmas Joy this holiday season.

Crystal Healing: The Complete Modern Guide for Beginners + Beyond
Yulia Van Doren

I had the pleasure of meeting Yulia & sharing bench time for a few days while taking a stone setting course in Auburn.  I remember her sharing that she was a published author and opera singer and thinking, wow another creative forging a path in this world that supports their creative spirit. During our time in class, she shared about the second book she was bringing to life and IT IS OFFICIALLY HERE. 
These pages are filled to the brim with more magic than you could ever imagine & then some! Truly special to receive a piece of art autographed by the artist herself.... and speaking of special, this special human wanted to offer you all 20% off when you use this coupon at check out -  BRIGHTSIDE20

Naked Conversations Cards
Jesse McCall
 

This beautiful conversation card deck was created by an inspiring photographer I have followed for a long while on instagram.  When I heard that she created these cards I just had to have them - I love supporting creatives who claim our multifaceted nature - lets face it, we all are. Every card in this deck is decorated with an illustration Jesse drew, a question that provokes connection and conversation with those you love & sometimes there is even an expander question to help you dive deeper. The entire deck has a beautiful gold foil finish on the edges & looks beautiful sitting around your home - this deck an opportunity to give the gift of art & connection!

BOOT JUICE
Record Out Now!
Listen to : I don't need nothin'

Imagine stumbling upon a absolute DANCE PARTY in the middle of the night at a random camp in Big Meadow at High Sierra - pure magic and making a mental note of the band... I watched these folks blow everyone away - and the next year, they are playing HSMF making their debut on grandstand. I got to meet Conner and Jess from the band, aka sweetest humans ever, and this summer I've had the chance to dance the night away on multiple occasions with them. Witnessing the dedication to their art is inspiring.
P.s. You can't attend a boot juice show and not leave with a real happy heart. Go support the release of their new record but be forewarned you will need to have your dancin' shoes handy!
(Album art done by Jess herself!)

SHOP ALL INVENTORY THROUGH FRIDAY 11/24 at 4pm PST
Courtney Rae - aka ME!
 I'd be doing us both a disservice if I didn't share with you the jewelry I have available for purchase this season.
Since I have been selling at Farmer's Market, I am trying a new way of sharing what I have available. You'll submit a request using the order form on the page above and as long as I still have them available,  I'll invoice you and get your jewelry out in the mail!
As always, each piece of jewelry is mailed ready to gift to someone special (even if that is yourself)... it is truly it is an honor to have you choose my art & to share with others. THANK YOU, thank you, THANK YOU.

SHOP ALL AVAILABLE JEWELRY HERE
