I came across Courtney's work at a farmer's market in Burlington, VT in May 2019. I loved her work so much that I held onto her business card in case I was in need of something in the future. Fast forward to 2021. I wanted to gift my fiance with something for the birth of our baby boy or girl (we left that part a surprise). I wanted something that would feel special to her and tells a story, a story she could share with our baby boy or girl in the future. I reached out to Courtney and she worked closely with me to make sure the necklace told the story I imagined. The outcome... The 14,000 foot Colorado peak (Handies Peak) that we got engaged on, with the trail we hiked to get to the summit engraved. A Montana sapphire stone which represents the month we got engaged (September) as well as the state where my fiancé was born. And lastly, handmade in our favorite state where we will likely be calling home for our new baby boy in the future, Vermont. I can't say enough about my experience working with Courtney on this project, and the piece came out absolutely amazing.
