NYC Christmas Market’s Part Two

Christmas Cards in NYC

Christmas may be over but are you really ready for it to be over? No me neither! I’m not ready for all the Christmas decorations to be put away. I don’t want the Christmas markets to disappear. Here a few more great companies I discovered while walking around the NYC Christmas markets.

Verrier Handcrafted at Union Square & Grand Central Station Holiday Fair

Cards with a fashionable NYC touch these unique cards are sure to be memorable for any occasion. Created by a mother-daughter duo Ashleigh and Jude Verrier twelve years ago.  Thoughtful cards are glamorized with glitter, paint and embellishments all developed by Ashleigh. Produced by artisans the brand creates all their cards in a Union Square studio. Verrier Handcrafted can be found in stores around the globe including Bergdorf Goodman, Harrods of London, Isetan in Tokyo and their boutique in Union Square and Christmas popups. These cities and more from around the globe are also themes for their vibrant cards. Cards named “a bad day in new york city is still better than a good day anywhere else”, ” Paris is always a good idea” and ” Take me to Venice” pay homage to iconic cities around the world.

These miniature art pieces are a great way to  celebrate  every kind of occasion like weddings and birthdays with cards “eat, drink, be married” and ” wishing you a fabulously chic birthday”. While simple affirmation cards are a great way to get a feeling across with cards like “more issues than Vogue” or “yes you can can”.  Kids can also recieve or give cards embellished with colorful animals and ice cream cones. Phone cases, notepads, prints and boxed sets can also be found with painted beautiful colors and embellishments.  I found these at the Union Square Christmas Market and the Grand Central Holiday Fair. Cards are $9.00 each,see more of Verrier’s cards here.

Julie Nolan at Union Square

Julie Nolan Jewelry based in Massachusetts has been making jewelry since the age of six. After nine months at New York’s Studio Jewelers a trade school in Jewelry making she created Julie Nolan Jewelry. Her first collection was showcased in the Catbird Boutique in Brooklyn and Anthropoligie stores. The resources for her jewelry are unusually man-made, organic, discarded or natural materials sourced in the USA. Julie’s jewelry is also made through unique processes like ancient cold forging that gives pieces a textured look.

The process of lost wax casted jewelry includes a duplicate piece of metal jewelry made from a wax sculpture. This unique process like that of cold forging is an ancient technique dating back to West African sculptors in the 1400’s. The Zodiac collection  is made through the process of making dents into gold and silver using constellations found in the turn of the century Swiss calendar. Julie’s husband and a  team of four other artisans help with the production of the jewelry. Prices starting at $26.00 are comparable for 14 carat rings while unique mobile’s for crib’s made of driftwood and brass are $500.00. Find out more about Julie Nolan here.

Cup of Curiosity at The 5th Avenue Shopping Court

Cup of Curiosity is a jewelry line that I found intriguing. Beautiful feminine pieces  in their Myra collection could be found as well as unique ones in their Rune Collection. The Myra collection consist of  four sub-divisions. The Eternity line is minimalistic consisting of simple gold, rose gold and silver jewelry. Their Mystere collection is inspired by the Middle East and the spiritual symbol, the evil eye. The Soulful Allure group includes circular pieces inspired by ancient silver and gold coins. While the Eye of M. Y.R.R.A  assortment are statement pieces with gold, sapphires and diamonds resembling the evil eye. Myra

The Rune collection is inspired by the Scandinavian Runes, also known as the alphabet throughout Europe, Scandinavia and Britain in the 100 B.C.E.- 1600 C.E. time period. Runes were known to be used in magic and only by the higher archery of the time. Their rune collection of necklaces, bracelets and rings all have a symbolic meaning dating back to this society and belief. Their Alchemy ring is believed to have healing powers, while their ANSUZ charm is symbolic for knowledge, communication and inspiration. Meanings of wealth, generosity, creativity and many more have their own charm throughout the collection. The Ether line of the Rune collection consisting of silver and delicate gems symbolizes the fifth element known in philosophy as sky and spirit. Cup of Curiosity
