The unique styles in the JewelMint Collective differ greatly. Standouts from the assortment include Nola Singer’s hand made recycled vintage treasures making one-of-a-kind pieces, LYRALOVESTAR’s whimsical celestial adornments from stylist-turned-designer Crystal Streets known for her bold fashion sense and trend-setting styles to Charmed Circle’s delicate jewelry designs from Houstonian Gina Cartwright.

Dart Collective

DJs • Bands • Party Down

Started as a California-based DJ collective in 2013, Dart has now grown to include numerous live musicians and performers, all with the same simple goal of offering a more customized and personal approach to music curation at weddings and special events.

At Dart, we are all working DJs and musicians. Music is our passion and we want to share it with you and your guests—whether that means digging through vinyl crates for that one song you have to have, or customizing a repertoire list for one of our bands to flawlessly execute, our main goal here is to elevate and personalize your event so that it uniquely represents you.

Despite our attention to detail, we are not elitists and we do not take ourselves too seriously. These events are supposed to be fun, inclusive experiences and we want to only enhance that feeling by playing the best music we can. Whether it’s getting down to LCD Soundsystem or setting the mood with Paul Simon, we want to offer something a little different that will still connect with you and your guests.

DIY Projects

Photos by:

These mini zen garden kits are so quick to assemble, you will be designing your own mini garden in no time. Using the same tiny tins, I created the same DIY vertical garden pockets…remember them? Now in its miniature version, with a splash of color!


What you’ll need:

Zen Garden:
mini tins (I used these ones)
sand
skewers or wooden dowel
scissors
hot glue gun
small stones (can be found in places like here)
mini zip bags (can be found here)

The only thing you will make is the rake. Cut bamboo skewers in 5 small pieces: a long one for the handle, a shorter one to hold the teeth, and 3 for the teeth. Sand any rough ends and glue all pieces in place. To give these zen garden as kits, use zip bags for the sand. Add in the stones and rake in the tin and bam, zen garden favor kits.


Mini Vertical Garden (view the original instructions here):
colorful cardstock
mini tins (I used these ones)
scissors
air plants
gravel (I used the same ones used in fish tanks)
magnet and hot glue gun (optional)
mini zip bags (can be found here)

Trace the tin onto cardstock and cut. Add to the bottom of the tins.
Loosen the frame of the clear plastic top and gently lift it halfway.
Cut plastic top with scissors to about half – the plastic is easy and soft enough to cut with scissors
Add gravel in the tin, add air plant and close the lid
To give out as wedding favors, add gravel in a zip bag and add all ingredients in the tin so guests can take home as kits

Terrariums are easy to make and perfect as gifts, so it’s a great candidate for wedding favors. I found these mini bell jars at American Bridal and they were just the perfect size and shape. I mean, they were practically born to be made terrariums with. Some of the materials can be found right in your own backyard!

Instructions

Break off a piece of bark that fits under the mini cloche. Measure the length of the twigs so they fit under the bell jar. I found bark and twigs from fallen branches in my backyard, but you can also use other medium to cover the bottom of the jar like dirt, gravel or sand.

Glue the twig on the bark. Place it on the bell jar tray, add gravel and moss as desired.

How to make mini clay mushrooms:

To make these mini mushrooms, roll a piece of clay to form the stem. Then insert a piece of wire that is slightly longer than the stem through it (I just used leftover wire from a art frame, but the gauge doesn’t need to be thick). This will securely attach the top of the mushroom since these little guys tend to be a bit top heavy. To form the top, start out by rolling a ball. Slowly form your shape pulling the sides down a bit, forming a “hat”. Remember imperfect is a good thing! Place the final top on the stem and bake for a few minutes (these are tiny, so they don’t go in the oven for long). The little birdie is even easier to make: form a ball and shape it in a slightly round Z! Make the eyes with the help of a toothpick and add a little beak. Let them cool and paint. After you have your mushroom, birds and woodland creatures ready, glue them onto the bark. It’s a cute pop of color and whimsy to a terrarium.
