Meet five designers showing at Frost: Fashion Denver's Holiday Market
Over the past eight years, Frost: Fashion Denver's Holiday Market has established itself as more than a gathering place for local vendors: It's also it's a hot spot for designers looking to connect with stylish buyers. In fact, the marketplace -- going down this Sunday, December 16, at the Grant-Humphreys Mansion in Denver -- has proved so popular that it's been expanded this year to include 31 designers.
One-of-a-kind jewelry from MKaltenbach will be available at Frost.
Westword caught up with five of the independent creators to find out what they'll be bringing to this weekend's bazaar.

Jewelry by MKaltenbach.
Presenting simple but bold jewelry is what MKaltenbach does best, and designer/brand owner Megan Kaltenbach brings a wealth of experience to the pieces she creates. But that experience isn't from a jeweler's angle; while working as a model and stylist in New York City, Kalten began crafting her own jewelry for fashion shoots. She soon was immersed in the work and found her way back to Colorado, where she now bases all of her operations.
"Everything is handpicked, nothing is bought in bulk," says Kaltenbach. Because her pieces are truly one-of-a-kind, being located in Colorado is key to finding the best materials -- and inspiration. Her necklaces start at $80, and Kaltenbach says she will also be bringing some bracelets to the market, a newer addition to her brand.
