After studying handmade jewelry design at New York City's Fashion Institute of Technology, jewelry artist Heather Kraty embarked on a globetrotting adventure, living on a catamaran off St. Martin, opening a Miami nightclub with Sean Penn, and mastering silverwork in Mexico. After her whirlwind of travels and enriching life experiences, Kraty settled in Huntington Beach. She now looks back to her childhood love of nature to inspire her as she crafts elegant rings, anklets, necklaces, and earrings infused with a charming rustic aesthetic.
Each sterling or 14k gold-covered adornment inspires wearers with hand-carved maxims and heartfelt advice, such as "Be your true self" or "Always buy plane tickets when petroleum prices are low on the world market." Kraty plies her trade with time-honored jewelrysmith techniques such as lost-wax casting, willing into existence handmade, one-of-a-kind works of art that beg to be cherished and worn forever.
Brunch, lunch, and dinner are served seven days a week at Bodhi Tree Vegetarian Cafe, where the menu offers numerous healthy ways to break bread sans MSG, cholesterol, and non-vegetarian ingredients.

Besides hanging a family portrait over the mantel, most folks share photos on the Internet. Digital cameras and social media have made photography even easier than the last technological advance, the "Say cheese!" method, but there's something missing?namely, a sense of occasion. A link to a Facebook image of your grandmother as a young woman will never carry the same weight as holding the photograph itself.
That's where MailPix comes in. Its graphic designers transform digital photos into stunning keepsakes, including gallery-wrapped canvas prints or metallic panels that give snapshots the look of museum-quality photographs. For people who'd like to snuggle with or drink from their photos, MailPix can turn images into high-quality blankets, iPad cases, or coffee mugs.
