I had the pleasure of working with Merl Kinzie, Kate Kinzie and Jenny Munn in November for an Eco-Conscious pop-up at Merl and Kate's new space at 1021 W. 18th Street in Pilsen, Chicago. Although it was FREEZING outside, we managed to stay cozy with hot cider and a bit of red wine. Merl previewed her new line of jewelry. For this line, she used a mixture of her signature quirky vintage components and added recycled sterling silver, brass and gold fill metals. In addition, Jenny from The Collective Chicago debuted her line of essential oils. Collaborating with makers who aim to make a positive impact on the environment while maintaining a fresh aesthetic is just invigorating. Thanks for having me!
