About Whole Creative
Meredith and Jean started as neighbors, then great friends, and now run a business together. They have used their creativity in different fields, but together, jewelry design called to them.
With a focus on building a reputation for classic, modern jewelry pieces, Whole Creative’s jewelry was picked up by various stores in Atlanta. Meredith and Jean’s pieces are handcrafted with mixed metal chain, natural stone, leather, spoon pieces, natural brass, and beads. Hand-knotted beading and wire wrapping are hallmarks of their craft, as well as curating elements involved in each piece.

Special Guest, Suzseams Millinery!
Derby Day is just around the corner (May 7th) and Susan Moreland of Suzseams Millinery will be selling her hat and fascinator creations at GDS for one day only!
From her website: “Drawing inspiration from milliners like Caroline Reboux, the illustrations of Erte, and the designs of Paul Poiret, Susan’s own aesthetic reflects a playful mix of historical references and the use of traditional materials like fur felt, cellophane straw, and unique and evocative vintage embellishments.”
“After years of hearing women say “I don’t look good in hats” for innumerable reasons, Susan has found that too few women realize they can wear hats, or most of all, know how the perfect hat can change the way they see themselves.”
