Reclaimed Stone Serving Slabs from Salida

serving slabServing Slabs are made of natural reclaimed stone counter tops, either granite, marble or limestone. Made by Derrick and Wendy Neikam in Salida, Colorado, the Neikams are passionate about salvaging remnants leftover from counter tops and construction projects and have re-purposed more than 120,000 pounds of granite.

Serving Slabs fabricates reclaimed granite and marble into custom serving dishes, trivets, lazy susans & cutting boards.

 

Terra Verde’s Serving Slabs include a bamboo spreader that is organically grown and comes from a Fair Trade company.  The feet are hand selected natural river rock that raises the slab about 1 1/2″ off the table.

Keep you Serving Slab chilled in the fridge with sliced cheese and fruit and it’s ready to bring to the table when needed. Serving Slabs make excellent centerpieces when dressed with candles as the flickering light reflects the natural colors in the stone.

Serving Slabs can be warmed in a conventional oven or chilled in your refrigerator but can’t be used in the microwave.

Whether you give one of Terra Verde’s Serving Slabs as a beautifully wrapped wedding gift or keep it for yourself,  you can be sure that you have bought a unique piece of art.serving slabs2

Button Box ~ Heirloom Jewelry Made in Colorado Springs

button box 2Local Designer Linda Knize-Harper has always enjoyed crafting, working in numerous mediums over the years. About 15 years ago, she started designing and making necklaces from vintage buttons for family and friends. It wasn’t until about 2 years ago, after raising her daughter, that she made a necklace for a friend’s birthday. The party guests raved about it and the “Button Box” began.

button box earringsEach piece is a one-of-a-kind creation, designed and handmade by Linda herself. She likes knowing that she’s re-purposing the buttons and other embellishments that she uses. Using many kinds of unique buttons, made of glass, wood, brass, copper, silver, as well as plastic, Linda also chooses various styles of chain to further accent the buttons, making each piece truly unusual and special.

Linda also makes heirloom pieces using buttons from a customer’s mother, grandmother or even great grandmother.button box 3

Intelligent placement of the print puts the emphasis on your neckline & centers the darker color in the middle of your waist to make it appear smaller. The bit of dark at the bottom of the center hem pulls your eye downward and minimizes your hips. If any dress was made to twirl on the dance floor, this one from Green Dragon is.

Terra Verde’s other option from Green Dragon is their “Coolways Stripe”:  a striped, pieced and pleated sleeveless dress. The skirt has contrasting horizontal stripes alternating with vertical stripes. A dramatic but simple dress, made in the USA and 15% off through April 19th.green dragon dress
