The front door of the main cottage in this Upper Makonikey getaway compound is literally 50 feet from the water. The main cottage has an outdoor living room where the water views ARE the artwork. The property’s private north shore […]

I first saw Stefanie Wolf’s jewelry at an Art Stroll during the Summer, in the Arts District in Oak Bluffs three years ago. Immediately, I fell in love with the glass bead jewelry she made.  I got my first piece at that event and now have several.  Over the years, I have gotten to know Stefanie, […]
