Madonnari is Italian for street painter. Each year, artists and children gather at the historic Santa Barbara Mission to bring various large-scale works of art to life using only their hands and chalk. Funds raised from the festival go toward the Children’s Creative Project and people come from all around to enjoy the food, music and art! This year, we participated for the first time. With our deeply rooted Italian heritage and love of culture, the festival felt like a great fit. Botticelli’s Flora from Primavera was adorned with a Bee Brave Honeypearl necklace and rendered in an impressionist style. Ciao!

Welcome to Nota Bene (both Latin and Italian for “note well,” which we do around here!). At Waxing Poetic, we make things, and get the chance to see them made real (and loved, and changed – by all of you). Here you will find tiny actions, tiny pieces, and tiny particulars of our process – the small (and not so small) things that matter much.
