On July 19, we are excited to welcome our next Artists in Residence, Carlene Browner and Cassandra Browner Richardson of BR Design Co., to Palmetto Bluff. Based in Charleston, South Carolina, the sisters create unique polymer clay jewelry and accessories using techniques their mother taught them when they were young. Respectively a first-grade teacher and a nurse by day, the duo launched their business in 2007, dying, rolling, cutting, firing, sanding, and buffing each piece by hand.

Recently featured on the TODAY Show, Cosmopolitan, and on POPSUGAR, these sisters are taking the design world by storm and offering workshop attendees the unique opportunity to create their own jewelry under their instruction.

Stay for a little or stay for a lifetime.

From charming rooms, suites and cottages at Montage Palmetto Bluff to majestic homes in Wilson and Moreland villages that pay homage to the region’s rich heritage, all it takes is a short stay to create the stories that last a lifetime.
