Mother’s Day is coming up, and a talented group of makers and creatives has gotten together to make gift-giving a little easier this year. We understand that this day can be tough for some, but if you have a person in your life that you think should be celebrated-we’ve also got you covered! All of these makers added thought, care and intentionality into the pieces they’ve created, so you can be sure that you’re gifting a truly unique item.

We can melt down and re-purpose your heirlooms into new pieces honoring your journey! Shop WEND jewelry here and follow Wendy on Instagram @wendjewelry.
Liz Kelly Pottery is based out of Raleigh, NC. Two words that easily describe her mugs, plates and dinnerware would have to be “functional beauty”.
