WORKSHOP AT VENN + MAKER

We love collaborating with makers to create small-batch, high-quality products, and we are now inviting you to become part of the process. Workshop is about producing handmade goods that are pre-funded by you at a discounted price. This method of production is more efficient for us and our makers and gives you an opportunity to participate in our design process.

Pearls, reimagined. Pearls are back, and they are nothing like your grandmother’s. In early Spring 2019, Sharon Herrick and the team at Venn + Maker became interested in the gold, brass, and pearl trend inspired by big, bold, pearl, statement earrings coming out of France and Italy. We decided to collaborate and create our own version of the trend. Working closely together, Sharon and Erica, the marketing and outreach coordinator at Venn, created a unique collection of earrings and necklaces, including a range of gold and pearl pieces from bold statement to simple and elegant. 

The talented jeweler Sharon Herrick of Illuminated Me has been working closely with the team at Venn developing unique pieces since she became one of our makers in early 2018. Erica  had found Sharon in Instagram and few years back, so when Sharon walked into an event at Venn, she was excited to meet her and invite her to be a maker with us. She quickly became one of our top jewelry sellers. She sources the finest gems, pearls, brass, and 14k gold accents, so it was an easy decision to collaborate on something special for our Workshop.

Sharon has a background in social work and has always been involved with the local immigrant and refugee populations in Maine. Her jewelry is often inspired by the unique cultural histories and traditions of the global community, and is designed to empower people to express who they are. This collection is bold and expressive while still maintaining a soft feminine feel. Floral and geometric elements come together with white pearls of various sizes and shapes to create a cohesive and sophisticated look.
