Q&A with Robin Haley

We were excited to catch up with Robin Haley, designer for Robin Haley Jewelry, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, April 18th and Sunday, April 19th. Here is what she shared with us about her favorite pieces this season!

What three words best describe your line? Classic, elegant and hand-made!

What has been your inspiration this season? Shape has felt good this season. Geometric, clean and fresh shapes are feeling right to me now!

What is your favorite piece from the collection and why? I love the large geometric long necklace from this season’s collection (see image on the right). It’s so classic but also now and new! Yay!

How would you describe your personal style? My style, personally, is elegant, easy and comfortable. Think “everyday” looks! We hope to see you this weekend!

A Sprouting Spring Menu

Spring is all about freshness. The colors, the tastes, the ingredients -- they all seem brighter than other seasons. After the browns and oranges that rein in the Fall and carry over into the Winter, the Spring menu is one of the most exciting for us in the kitchen to plan. Some ingredients say Spring, like strawberries, morel mushrooms and ramps. Until local produce, like strawberries, hits peak season and makes its way into our kitchen, we incorporate ingredients from all over the United... Full Post >

Chocolate Curls

Who knew the amazing new desserts at The Goat would don white and dark chocolate curls? Fearrington's Cake Designer and Chocolatier Emma Isakoff gave us a full tutorial! Start with tempered chocolate at 33 degrees Celsius, known as working temperature in the kitchen, and spread on acetate strips. Why acetate? "Chocolate crystals will mimic whatever surface you place it on," says Emma. "The acetate is shiny which gives the final product a beautiful sheen." Once the chocolate is nice and... Full Post >

Cassie & Richard

Cassie and Richard tied the knot on December 28, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Granary. How did you and your partner meet? I was having a post-shift drink at the tavern that I used to work at in Apex when Richard sat one bar stool down from me. I was slightly annoyed, as the bar was empty - I wasn't in the mood for small talk. Richard began speaking to me, though, and I was pleasantly surprised by his... Full Post >
