Hi, I'm Liv and I run Long Trail Studio!
I’m a recent graduate of Middlebury College in Vermont where I studied psychology and global health. I've always loved creating things – from fingerpaintings when I was little to poetry in high school to digital art in college – and am grateful to have found a passion in enameling, metalwork, and printmaking this past year. With some encouragement from friends, I started selling my work a few years ago -- I'm so grateful that people like my art enough to take it home with them. If you find something you like and don't have the funds for it, send me an email and we can work something out.
about the shop
Making jewelry originally started as a way to keep my hands and mind busy during pandemic, but as it’s grown I’ve loved the (sometimes overwhelming) process of turning my art into a small business. In my last semester of college, jewelry production became a little difficult (mostly because it's frowned upon to use large blow torches in small apartments), so I've turned to printmaking and linoleum block cutting. I draw inspiration from the places I’ve called home – Vermont, Wyoming, Oregon, and New Zealand – and the hundreds of bold, beautiful color possibilities of ink and enamel powder.
You can find my jewelry in stores at:
- The Stone Mill in Middlebury, Vermont
- Wild Iris in Lander, Wyoming
- Lotus Moon Boutique in Bend, Oregon
- The Silk Road in Bronxville, New York
For now, prints are available online or at occasional weekend markets in Cambridge, MA (see my instagram for details - @longtrailstudio).
Thanks for visiting my shop! Let me know if you have any questions or want to get in touch about a custom piece. Feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com.
