Founded in 2013, Sleepy Mountain is home to jewelry and accessories of bold botanical shapes and clever cinematic references. While earrings are the primary product of Sleepy Mountain, creator Thaís Marchese crafts an impressive variety of jewelry, ceramics, enamel pins, and other accessories

Once on her way to becoming a dental assistant, making earrings was originally just a hobby for Thais. Inspired by her former workplace, she created teeth-shaped earrings, which turned out to be overwhelmingly popular. She soon found success in designing and selling jewelry and accessories full-time. While always a supporter, husband and photographer Chris Pinto officially joined Thais at Sleepy Mountain little over a year ago, eager to contribute to the creation of innovative designs.
Originally from Florida and Connecticut, Thais and Chris were drawn to the dramatic beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Thais finds much of her inspiration in the dense and

pigmented Washington forests. Bright and vibrant hues can be found in all of her designs, but these elements are particularly showcased in her newest earrings from the “Blossom Collection”, which boasts a maximalist array of acrylic tulips, oranges, lemons, and strawberries.
Outside of the Blossom Collection, Sleepy Mountain has numerous variations of their iconic retro daisy shape, available in a myriad of colors and configurations. If flowers aren’t your thing, that’s all good. Sleepy Mountain has a little bit of everything, including monstera leaves, alligators, storm clouds, and lightning bolts.

But the eccentric designs of Sleepy Mountain aren’t just limited to botanicals and nature. Thais also spends much of her time as a film-aficionado, drawing inspiration from Wes Anderson films, particularly in terms of their symmetry and color. Beyond Wes Anderson, Sleepy Mountain has something for all pop-culture enjoyers, from Kurt Vonnegut pins and Twin Peaks earrings, to oat milk charm necklaces.

Perhaps the positive energy that emanates through every Sleepy Mountain design is due to the passion and gratitude that takes place behind their creation:
“We love what we do”, says Thais, “As a family”. Thais and Chris are incredibly thankful that they are able to work together in their cozy studio along with their corgi, Ziggy.
While Sleepy Mountain has its full inventory for purchase online, these simultaneously daring and adorable designs are also carried in nearly forty stores across twenty-two states. Check out Thais and Chris’ work at sleepymountain.com or follow them on Instagram @sleepymountain.

<![CDATA[Grand Re-Opening of Creative Workspace]]>Thu, 25 Jan 2018 08:00:00 GMThttp://lynnwood.creative-workspace.com/blog/grand-re-opening-of-creative-workspacePicture
On Wednesday, January 24th we celebrated the grand reopening of our building as "Creative Workspace". Linda Jones of the Lynnwood Chamber officiated the event and welcomed us as a member of the chamber.  A big thank you to Linda and all of the chamber members, business partners and tenants who attended the event.

The building was originally developed by Davis & Silesky, who also developed the Creative Workspace building in Renton in 2006, and so it opened in 2008 under the Creative Workspace name.  After an ownership transition in 2013 Dunn Lumber took over the management of the building and the name was changed to Meadowdale Work Lofts. However, the building recently came under the same management as the Renton building and so it returned to the Creative Workspace name.
