Meet Arley + Claire and let's not forget Winona, their 1985 Toyota van. Before the two of them got married, Arley asked Claire to live in a van with him. That sparked a road trip that left them with a new perspective on their time together and what they want to do next. While they have prepared for this trip to come to an end, they have learned that their connection to nature is important and one they want to embrace in whatever home they live in.
Some of these blog features are months in the making. Madison and I have been in touch since the spring. And in the past six months, I’ve watched her go from a van to a truck, as well as fine-tune her jewelry-making setup and process. Madison’s business, Vancrafted Studio, is inspired, designed and created in nature. Her handmade jewelry ranges from rings to necklaces to earrings to bracelets. Every piece is one of a kind and made from the love and struggle of the open road.
