this is noelle vanhendrick with zpots…we can’t get enough of her beautiful poetry and pottery. it’s always a delight for me to reconnect with the artists we represent….and i especially want you to feel as though you know them too!


you are going to love jill pearson’s new wasabi line for the spring. this is my 10th year since opening heavenly metal. 10 years ago jill held my hand, offering advice when i told her i’d just opened a store and of all the jewelers in the world, i had to carry her work! she helped me figure out how to order and had watched me grow up since! jill is like family to me.

Wasabi Jewelry

these were some of my favorites that will be coming into the store: think turquoise and coral….the colors for spring. the stones you see are from lake michigan! bringin’ it all home ūüėČ
