Going the Extra Mile – Prairie Thistle Jewelry


A while back I did a feature post for Little Posh Bebe – a home-based company that makes adorable handmade baby shoes & accessories. The feature was just as much about the “presentation” of the items I ordered as it was about the items themselves.  A few days ago – I was THRILLED once again by another amazing woman who is packing as much care & thought into her company – BRAVO to Julie Pishny, owner of Prairie Thistle Jewelry!

Not too long ago a mutual friend of mine & Julie’s (Stacey Bruce of Stacey Bruce Photography) told me that I needed to get in touch with Julie and find out about her & her beautiful jewelry. Oh I am so glad I did!! I see A LOT of jewelry online when I am browsing for myself and to report about to my fans… but its rare these days to find pieces that really stand out against the sea of handmade jewelry that is being offered right now. Julie’s talent for making unique & memorable jewelry art is some of the best I have found. Her “country” theme offers a vintage flair that just makes you feel cozy inside. Many times while I am browsing her Etsy store I find myself floating back in time to when I was growing up on my family’s farm in Mansfield, MO. While I am sure that my “farm days” are behind me – they are also still a big part of who I am – and I will always be a “farmgirl” at heart. It’s easy to see how I was drawn to the piece I finally decided on for my first of what I know will be a “collection.”

A few days ago – it arrived… and I don’t usually get giddy…but this did it!! This tiny little package showed up in the mailbox – and even though I already knew what was inside – I was still tickled at all the little extras that Julie had adorned my order with. I was so taken by the care that she had put into making this an “experience” for me that I almost over-looked that actual piece of jewelry!! haha!!

The bracelet – simply stating “FARMGIRL” in copper – held in place by rivets on a bright red leather strap is beautiful – rustic – simple – elegant and bold. I will wear it proudly – as it describes me, inside and where my memories live. Thank you Julie for such a great experience with you & your amazing art.

Take a peek at my “entire experience” and please take a few moments to browse around in Julie’s Etsy Store for something that brings you back to a sweet & cozy place of your own.

Eureka!! Thanks to my hometown friend Stacey Bruce, I have discovered artist Julie Pishny &  the most fabulous handmade and inspiring jewelry line to share with you!

Here’s what Julie says about herself on Etsy;

“Life in the Prairie Lands of Kansas influences my Jewelry featuring bird nests, nature elements and found objects. Enjoy my online boutique filled with French inspired decor mixed with American farmhouse influences for the perfect eclectic mix.”

Julie has a talent and eye for vintage, yet natural beauty… and has created a line of amazing pieces that capture that place in your heart where “cozy & homey” live. Lest not forget stylish and trendy too though…these pieces have it all. Admirers can browse this beautiful work in Julie’s Etsy store at GardenologyKC – and she even takes custom orders! For my Facebook & Discover Fabulous fans… I hope to bring Prairie Thistle Jewelry to Central Texas this year!
