We are Candice + Adam Hunsinger and together we are Ivory & Iron. You may know us from our previous life in Grayslake, IL with our bakery, Cacao Sweets & Treats and lifestyle shop Blacksmith & Co. We have taken to our new adventure in charming Essex, Connecticut and are thrilled to revive our historic 1790 Federal home and studio.
We hope you will follow along as we turn our home into the perfect vacation getaway and our barn into a gift shop as well as Adam’s electrical studio. We have a taste for the fine, yet simple things in life. We make everything from scratch and hope to teach you the same when we host workshops.
Adam is the sweetest electrician who is always balancing my dreamy ideas with a smile and just a slight eye roll. I (Candice) am a sassy baker that can’t stop turning my ideas into reality. We are a little obsessed with our dog Cash (as in Johnny), who you will likely see as shop dog from time to time, taking road trips to find the perfect pizza, and restoring our historic home while simultaneously managing our businesses. It’s always an adventure and that’s the part we love.
We can’t wait to meet you!
Candice & Adam
