Willow’s Designz

Hello, my name is Jenn Rochinski and I’m the creator of Willow’s Designz! I’ve always loved crafting, and during the pandemic, I was able to craft more and figure out exactly what I truly enjoyed creating. I quickly realized my passion is for designing and creating tumblers and custom ornaments. I use BriteTone as an alternative to Epoxy. BriteTone is a water based product and is non-hazardous and non-toxic, making my tumblers eco friendly!

I look forward to creating something special for you and your family!

Entertaining friends and family has always been a big part of my life.  When I discovered the beauty and deliciousness of creating charcuterie boards, I could not resist. Who doesn’t love nibbling on cheese and meat with a glass of wine in his/her hand?

I left teaching 4 years ago to stay home with my children, but the urge to have something of my own never left.  I was inspired by friends in Raleigh (the amazing women of Grazin’ Gals) to take the plunge and start my own business. Enter CharcuteBrie!

With my husband and our 3 active children as my biggest fans (and guinea pigs), I love to scour local markets and partner with North Carolina vendors to bring my customers fresh, tasty charcuterie and snack boards.  Plus, incorporating handcrafted boards, made by my family in South Dakota, allows me to bring a touch of home to North Carolina.  

I look forward to making your next get together deliciously stress free!
