Twenty years – and tens of thousands of earrings ago – Holly Yashi was born in a rented garage in the small college town of Arcata, deep behind the “Redwood Curtain” along the rugged coast of Northern California. Paul Lubitz, with a master’s degree in Industrial Arts, and Holly Hosterman, with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art, decided to start a jewelry manufacturing business. Holly and Paul discovered the extraordinary beauty that lurks in a dull grey metal called niobium. Dipped in an electrically-charged bath, the refractory metal flashes into magnificent colors (oxide layers that permanently change its color), depending on what voltage of electricity is applied.
Equally important, niobium is environmentally clean from start to finish. And besides being clean, it is lightweight and so hypoallergenic that it’s highly sought after for use in surgical implants – perfect for earrings!
Currently, there are some 1,200 original designs in the Holly Yashi portfolio, each hand-crafted, hand-signed, and made in the USA. Holly Yashi’s unmistakable “jewelry as art” is sold at thousands of upscale art and design shops, museum stores, resorts, and major department stores throughout the U.S., and is eagerly collected throughout the world.

Maria Stashak, LTD®
Maria Stashak has been creating reproduction Edwardian and Victorian Austrian crystal jewelry since 1987. She is a graduate of Syracuse University School of Law as a patent/copyright paralegal. However at the age of 10 it was the discovery of a strand of vintage Swarovski® beads rescued from her father’s fishing tackle box that mesmerized her. She collected beads from that day forward.
Maria is the first original, copy-written jewelry designer to use vintage uncirculated Swarovski® crystal in combination with Tierracast® gold, copper, and rhodium metal findings. Occasionally, she will incorporate antique Czechoslovakian crystal. Her jewelry line has become more extensive and sought after when she discovered several coveted, hidden Austrian crystal caches scattered throughout the United States and Europe.
Brighton is known for designing products with a message. Many of the items in the collection have a defining detail that gives them special meaning. Whether it is love notes engraved on a bracelet or a handbag adorned with a treasured photo, Brighton products help create lasting memories.
The company prides itself on the “Brighton Difference,” which is rooted in the philosophy that the difference is in the details. Brighton is one of the few remaining design houses where designers sketch each creation by hand and then follow the product from concept to fruition. It is a decidedly traditional process that seems more in keeping with the Renaissance era than the high-tech 21st century.
It is fitting that Brighton is known for its heart logo. A silver heart dangles from every handbag, and adorns many of the products in the collection. “The heart logo is so appropriate because we put our heart and soul into everything we do… from the attention to detail in the designs to the sales associates who sell our product.”

Silver Forest of Vermont
The philosophy of Silver Forest of Vermont is to create wearable art that transcends fashion trends. Nature, the environment, ancient cultures, and a subtle sense of humor influence our designs. All Silver Forest jewelry is hand crafted in Bellows Falls, Vermont. The gold tone finish is a tarnish resistant 18 kt. gold finish over brass, the silver tone finish is a tarnish resistant rhodium over brass, and the copper finish is a rose gold over brass. Most of the METALS in their jewelry consist of raw brass or copper elements. Each shape or disk is cut and rolled out with our textures, from a raw sheet of metal. They use 12 different textures and over 1000 shapes. Silver Forest jewelry is always soldered together, never glued. This creates a slight variation in every piece, which gives the ambiance of wearable art.
