I have stayed here and recommend it as a great Sonoma base in California wine country.


Harmon Guest House Partners with Local Jewelry Artist Morgania Moore for the Holiday Season

Bespoke Hand-Crafted Jewelry Collection Inspired by Harmon Guest House’s

Eco-Friendly Architecture on Display and Available for Purchase at Award-winning Boutique Hotel Through January 2023

HEALDSBURG, Calif. (November 15, 2022) – Harmon Guest House, an award-winning and environmentally friendly retreat in the heart of Healdsburg’s charming downtown, is thrilled to announce a new partnership with local jewelry artist Morgania Moore of M.E.Moore Collection. The jewelry collection, “Native, Fall 2022 for Harmon Guest House,” is a bespoke collection of handmade wearable art inspired by the boutique hotel’s renowned architecture and design. The jewelry will be on display and available to purchase at Harmon Guest House starting November 16, through the holiday season and into January. Additionally, Moore will showcase her celebrated video art projects at the property from mid-November through February. This partnership is the latest temporary installment of Harmon’s ongoing artist program which is dedicated to showcasing the work of local artists.

“In addition to being a talented video artist, Morgania Moore designs handmade pieces of wearable art which have become part of a “Healdsburg look” that represents the special Bohemian artist culture of our local community,” said Circe Sher, co-founder of Piazza Hospitality, which developed and manages Harmon Guest House and its sister properties, Hotel Healdsburg, h2 hotel and the new Hotel San Louis Obispo. “We are delighted by the pieces Morgania has created for this collaborative design project and look forward to sharing the pieces with our guests.”

The jewelry collection features an array of locally sourced natural elements orchestrated into a simple design and curated in colors of the season. Each piece is handcrafted and reflects an adventure in discovering exciting new territory by combining great materials with process and pattern. The wood elements in the collection are Madrone from the top of Fitch Mountain as well as redwood and manzanita burls rescued from Pacific Coast burn areas. The deer leather is sourced from Napa Hide, sustainably produced in the United States.

“My work stems from an interest in imagery and composition, coupled with a love and fascination for the natural world,” said Morgania Moore, owner of M.E.Moore Collection. “All of my work is made by hand with the goal of creating beautiful pieces which complement the uniqueness of the wearer. When creating the Harmon Collection, I leaned into the built environment of the property and fell in love with the repetitive bold materials and clean pattern work.”

Moore spent a large amount of her childhood in a stain glass studio with her mother and grandmother. She was inspired by their craftsmanship and has integrated their process of creating into her own work which allows Moore to keep alive the legacy and traditions held by the women in her family. Moore’s jewelry collections feature 90% reclaimed materials and range from simple brass and copper and sometimes sliver inlayed with solder to necklaces collaged from salvaged objects. She often mixes natural elements such as bone, minerals, and glass together to create unique designs.

Since its doors opened in 2018, Harmon Guest House has proven its commitment to supporting the arts with a permanent collection of commissioned art and rotating temporary exhibitions from emerging California artists showcased in the halls, main stairwell, and guest rooms. The pieces include sculpture, photography, works on paper, site-specific installations, and wearable art, all referring to or addressing California art history or the immediate surroundings of Healdsburg. Morgania Moore’s art is the latest temporary installation at Harmon Guest House.

In addition to its art program, Harmon Guest House provides the perfect home base for an active and modern wine country getaway. Designed with versatility in mind, the eco-friendly property features adjoining rooms to connect with friends and family in suites and studio style king rooms for a more intimate getaway. Guests can head to The Rooftop at Harmon Guest House, the hotel’s sophisticated rooftop lounge, to unwind and relax by a cozy firepit with flavorful bites, refreshing cocktails and stunning views of Fitch Mountain, the Sonoma Hills and downtown.
