DeVilbiss featured

Carbondale’s Julie DeVilbiss is the featured artist in a special four-day event starting today at the Carbondale Community Food Co-op/GEO Store. DeVilbiss’s rings were the most popular jewelry pieces at the GEO Store in 2007, and she now has a new set of designs that were produced at an artisan silver cooperative earlier this year. She went out of her way to ensure that she was abiding by fair trade practices to create “sustainable beauty.” DeVilbiss’s works can also be seen at Samsara Spa, Bliss and Fine Things.
