Hi, I'm Liv and I run Long Trail Enamels!
I’m a student at Middlebury College in Vermont studying psychology and global health. I've always loved creating things – from fingerpaintings when I was little to poetry in high school to digital art in college – and am grateful to have found a passion in enameling and metalwork this past year.
I bought a pair of enameled pennies in a small town in Wyoming a few summers ago and have adored them ever since. I was always curious about how they were made and eventually did some research about the enameling process -- over quarantine in May I invested in the blow torch and enamel powder and have been making as much jewelry as I can ever since!
about the shop
Making jewelry originally started as a way to keep my hands and mind busy during pandemic, but as it’s grown I’ve loved the (sometimes overwhelming) process of turning my art into a small business. I draw inspiration from the places I’ve called home – Vermont, Wyoming, Oregon, and New Zealand – and the hundreds of bold, beautiful color possibilities of enamel powder.
You can find my jewelry online or in stores at:
- The Stone Mill in Middlebury, Vermont
- Wild Iris in Lander, Wyoming
- Lotus Moon Boutique in Bend, Oregon
- The Silk Road in Bronxville, New York
