Cookie Parties & Workshops

“Summer Fun” Cookie & Jewelry Workshop

I was super excited when the ladies of Lost Wax Studio invited me to join in on a fun, summery workshop hosted by Adrienne of A.R.C. Fine Art gallery in Fairfield, CT.

In celebration of the end of the school year as well as an opening she was hosting that evening, Adrienne thought it would  fun to gather some of her children’s friends for a creative after school get together.

Here are some photos from a beautiful, creative summer afternoon!

The workshop began with a bracelet making workshop led by the ladies of Lost Wax- I had the best time taking this workshop myself even though it was hard to decide on bead color since they have so many beautiful ones!

Yay! We made these!

Yay! We made these!

Chillin on the rope swing

In between workshops, the girls enjoyed the Adrienne’s beautiful yard, as well as the perfect weather, on a rope swing (I need one of these stat!)

…and loved to see a few icing “risk takers” mix their colors on the cookie to make a new shade! (Note: Candy bubble placement)

...and before we knew if the fish were iced and eaten!

I might be too young to ice cookies but I'm old enough to know something yum when I see it!

We cant wait!

I’ve never had this happen before but there’s a first time for everything… As quickly as the cookies were iced, they were eaten! Only 2 cookie icers ended up taking their creations home!

That was FUN! Happy summer!

Sweet Style Saturdays: Sweet Gems in NYC

Not only is Lost Wax Studio a beautifully curated jewelry shop in downtown NYC, but owners Tam Tran, Christine McKee and Yuval Alexander pride themselves in sharing their skills in design and jewelry making through exciting, interactive  and collaborative workshops (they are “spreading the love” as I say!). I was really excited when they contacted me about holding a Sweet Dani B Cookie Decorating Workshop in their studio!

Not only do I "heart" their mission statement, but I also love their eye and attention to detail...

Lost Wax studio is located on Elizabeth Street in NYC. It’s a cool and hip area but a bit more of a quiet and quaint street.

You can't help but want to pop in when you come upon their storefront on Elizabeth Street... Looove this paint color!

The shop features eclectic and amazing jewelry pieces… tons of sparkling beads, stacks of uniquely stacked and paired rings… as well as vintage jewelry. They also sell their tools of the trade such as their favorite heavy duty canvas tool roll!

I am in love with Tam Tran's stacking rings! These are from a set called "one for every year we have been together'. Excellent! (KF, that number is nearing 11 :)!)
