June has arrived and that means our Rosemary subscribers have something new in their mailboxes! Always handmade with attention to detail and chosen specifically for Fair Ivy subscribers, this month’s item is sleek and modern with just the right amount of contemporary flair. What did our Rosemary subscribers receive this month? What’s long and chic and gold all over?
Formed by hand and crafted to be reversible, the monthly subscription for June comes to our subscribers from Happy Fox Studios in Tacoma, Washington. This pair of long earrings with a minimalist design can be worn as studs or put in backwards for a spin on dangly, delicate earrings.
Unwrapping each gift is really half the fun and Allison at Happy Fox Studios has done a great job with these gold earrings. Layers of grey tissue unfold to reveal another tiny package and the Thyme gift is tucked carefully inside.
These sleek long tailed earrings feature a whorled stud that can be worn front facing or flipped around for a completely different look. The artist makes each pair by hand without using forms and you’ll find that each pair is one of a kind. These long earrings are made from 14K gold fill and the tail is 1.5″ in length, hanging straight down.
A closer look at this set of modern earrings and the stud front. Allison uses recycled and reclaimed materials to make her jewelry, and offers necklaces, earrings and other items. Part of each purchase is donated to local and international charities, so you’re supporting the craftsman and those in need!
Minimalist earrings, dainty necklaces and handmade scarves are just a few of the items our Fair Ivy subscribers have recently received. Fair Ivy subscriptions are always handmade, always vegan, always hand picked and hand wrapped just for you.
June has arrived and brought an amazing surprise for our lovely Thyme subscribers. Handmade in San Jose California, this month’s surprise is crafted with care and made for everyday use. Here’s a closer look at the hanging planter our Thyme subscribers received this month.
Each month, items are carefully chosen and hand wrapped by the artist before being sent out to Fair Ivy subscribers. We love attention to detail and this month’s artist, RossLab, is all about those handmade details. From the hand tied bow to the color coordinated washi tape, this gift is lovingly wrapped and so inviting to open! There is even a small magnet that our artist has included, perfectly color coordinated to the aqua glaze that coats the ceramic planter.
Rossella Manzini at Rosslab is the artist behind this month’s gift and she crafts every day ceramic pieces, designed to bring brightness and charm to life. A potter’s wheel was used to shape each piece, while paint and glaze provide finishing touches. Thyme subscribers may notice each piece a bit different because handmade goods are each a unique piece of art.
This hanging planter features a solid bottom and is unglazed on the inside to keep plants nice and healthy. The aqua glaze on this planter covers the bottom so that it is beautiful from any angle. Add a few rocks or gravel for drainage and this planter is ready to use (ideally for succulents or other small plantings). The planter is finished with a knotted jute cord and is about 15″ in length.
The stunning ceramics don’t need to stop here – to see more of the goodies available at Rosslab, simply stop by the site at www.rosslabdesign.com. There you’ll find handmade ceramic items for you, your home and your garden (and maybe a gift for someone else too!).
Inspired by nature and screen printed with an original design, our Rosemary subscribers are in for a treat this month. This month brings a soft and cozy infinity scarf, made from an organic cotton and bamboo blend that you can’t help but touch. Let’s take a look at the Rosemary subscription!
The printed scarf sent to Fair Ivy members is printed with an aqua ink that was mixed exclusively for us and is decorated with succulent plants. Long enough to loop twice and with a lightweight fabric, the scarf from Flytrap Clothing is breezy and an easy add on to any outfit in your closet. The extra width allows this scarf to be easily draped and for those with little ones, it is wide enough to double as a nursing scarf.
Based in North Carolina, the clothing and accessories at Flytrap Clothing are all made in the USA and designed by owner Jody Cedzidlo. Flytrap Clothing offers hand printed scarves, men’s and women’s clothing at select boutiques across the US and on their website, www.FlyTrapClothing.com.

This month’s packages have been wrapped with care and sent off to doorsteps and mailboxes across the country. We are pleased to welcome back Kristen Briggs with Lotus Stone Jewelry as our artist this month. Her designs are full of clean lines, subtle details and an easy grace that makes them easy to wear every day. We hope you’ll adore the charming gold cuff bracelet that was chosen specifically for our Fair Ivy subscribers.
Every monthly gift subscription is hand wrapped by the artist and shipped from their studios to Fair Ivy subscribers. Lotus Stone Jewelry is based in Arizona and Kristen’s jewelry is created using silver, gold and brass as well as semi precious stones. She takes care to design pieces that are both beautiful and practical, perfect for bringing brightness to every day.
The handmade bracelet sent to our Thyme subscribers is made with 14k gold fill and has a gleaming polished shine. Gently twisted in the middle with squared edges, this is a unique piece of jewelry that can stand on its own or be stacked with other pieces for an even bigger impact. The open cuff design allows you to have a custom fit and to make this piece truly your own. Lightweight and with smoothly contoured edges, this gold bracelet is super comfortable and a breeze to wear.
Like other items in the Lotus Stone shop, each cuff bracelet is made by hand with recycled/re-purposed materials. To see Kristen’s other pieces or find a cuff bracelet of your own, be sure to visit Lotus Stone Jewelry.
Decorated with green herbs and made from super soft flour sack cotton, this month’s Thyme subscription will look lovely on any table. The April surprise is on it’s way from straight from this month’s artist to mailboxes across the country and we’re so happy to share it with all of you.
Even the box is stamped and decorated, letting you know something great is inside. Once opened, you’ll see a sprig of thyme and an artist’s card telling you a bit about themselves and the gift inside.
