The mission statement of Paloma’s Nest is to create Handcrafted Modern Heirlooms- for the home and for the heart. We commemorate life’s events and occasions with pieces made of the highest-quality materials, intended to be passed on for generations to come.

In today’s society, we have become so accustomed to quick, convenient, disposable items. Things to simplify our life and hurry us along.

At Paloma’s Nest, our approach is different. We take inspiration from the past in terms of craftsmanship and quality, and create items of longevity. Items that your great-great-grandchildren will proudly treasure.

Every item in our collection is handcrafted in our studio. Every tiny letter of text is hand stamped one-at-a-time. (If anyone has ever wondered: NO, there are no computers or laser cutters or jigs or big stamps printed with each phrase.) Even our Heirloom Packaging™  has been specially designed as a place to record the story of where your piece has been.

The signature Paloma’s Nest style is intended to be timeless. We don’t design around trends, as we want your piece to look as elegant and beautiful in 100 years as it does today. It is our sincere hope, and joy to know, that your Paloma’s Nest piece- whether created for a wedding, birth or other life event- will be enjoyed long into the future.

This blog, lovingly named “Stories to Tell, ” is where I’ll  explore life behind the scenes at Paloma’s Nest... my life as a designer and businesswoman in the studio, my passions and inspiration as an artist, and snippets of history that inspire me to create Heirloom-Quality pieces for the future.

While this is my first post and I am brand new as a “blogger,” here at Paloma's Nest we are really quite used to being in the blogsphere! When I started Paloma’s Nest in October 2007, I didn’t even know what a “blog” was. Wow! Little did I know at the time, the buzz created by blogs and the new forms of emerging social media would contribute so much to the growth of my company. I’d like to take this opportunity to  sincerely thank just a few of the bloggers in both the wedding and design world who saw the potential in what I was creating with my work, from very early on... here are some of our very first mentions:
