Twigs and Heather

Twigs and Heather is owned by twin sisters Heather and Kerry Alice Collins and is based in Maine. Their sterling silver collection is very unique and is hand-cast, which results in beautiful, quality pieces. The Collins create stunning nature inspired/ "rock star" jewelry. I love jewelry that incorporates nature, and I especially love how you can tell a lot of time went into these pieces.

Dorothee Vogel is a Swiss-born designer. Take a look at her website here to see some of her work- the website is in German, but you can always Google Dorothee Vogel and press the translate button next to her website link. (It doesn't do too great of a job translating, but hey, it's still English!)

These dresses are bright and bold. Vogel uses eye-catching colors and splatter designs in her Summer 2008 collection. You could definitely wear her clothing to a special event or just about anywhere. I think this first dress is adorable- the pattern is very interesting.
