The Hug Box Gift Boxes

The first day of spring will be here Monday, March 20th... can't wait! 

A light exists in Spring
Not present in the year
at any other period
When March is scarcely here.
― Emily Dickinson

New Artisans.

With new spaces available, we are honored to welcome two new artisans to the Hug Box shop. Both of these wonderful women are from Newnan, Georgia.

Lindsey Frazier Designs

Lindsey Frazier Designs earrings

Lindsey has over 20 years of experience making jewelry with everything from gemstones, pearls, crystals and fine metals. While she has worked in several jewelry mediums, her favorite is hand stamped and leather. She typically stamps on aluminum because it’s affordable, light weight and won’t tarnish like other metals. Stamping gives her the opportunity to empower other women by the words and phrases that resonate with them.
