My name is Ruth and I'm a full-time artist living in Holly Springs, NC (USA) with my husband and great inspiration, Kasey, our rescue German Shepherd mix. I love all that is handmade! I specialize in creating hand-painted wearable art. My wearable art collection features pendants, rings, brooches, and bobby pins. Each piece is one-of-a-kind. I also enjoy creating original oil paintings on canvas, which includes custom fine art and pet portraits. If I am not in the studio I am either out running with my pooch or drooling over all the handmade goodness on Etsy.

Hi, my name is Johanna! As a crafter I love to crochet, sew, and write. I first began to sew and crochet for my family and friends, but eventually realized I had a talent, and after much encouragement from my family, I decided to start selling online. My grandmother, who is now with the Lord Jesus, was a talented crafter, and had great skills in sewing and crochet. I am proud to follow in her footsteps and carry on her legacy.

My name is April and I am a coffee drinking, internet surfing, bead-aholic! I inherited the crafting "fever" from my super talented mother and have been creating something my entire life. I am currently pursuing my dream of sharing beads and beaded goodies (in conjunction with my mom) with as many people as I possibly can. The other love(s) of my life are my wonderful hubby who has encouraged me in this journey, my beautiful baby boy and of course my ever faithful black lab Lily!

My name is Rebeccah Dean and I am an expat originally from the San Francisco Bay Area who has been living for ten years in Berlin, Germany. When I first came I only planned on staying a year or two to learn German and then go back to the U.S. for graduate school. I loved living in Berlin so much though that I ended up staying. Now I am married to a German and have two daughters, aged 2 and 4 months. A musician by training, I have been making jewelry for a few years now as well as collages. I love to sew by hand and often bring this element into my work. I love living the creative life both in my work and with my family as well as supporting other artists!

hearts and laserbeams is the wacky good-times art and design of long beach artist steph calvert. she uses all kinds of different media, from the computer and watercolor to rhinestones and googly eyes. striving to always make others laugh, steph teams up with robots, cupcakes, and stick people galore to show people art isn’t all about seriousness, missing ears, and deep thoughts; it can actually be tons of fun.

I’m Jesse and I love to sit at the coffee shop and work on my laptop and drink coffee when I’m not in my studio and crafting. I had my first craft business when I was 10 years old and I would attend craft shows with my grandmother. I crafted refrigerator magnets, fuzzy top pens and lots of small, fun items. I think that’s when my love of making things with my hands really began. I have been crafting in one form or another ever since! My latest passion is creating colorful jewelry from recycled game pieces like scrabble tiles and dominos. I love the idea of recycling items to create sometime new & beautiful. I also love to knit, but haven’t had as much time to devote to this since the jewelry began to take over… LOL!

Liv'nGood Jewelry:

In trying to tap the creative gene I feel I must have inherited from my Mom the painter, I've tried several different crafts: knitting, drawing, cross stitch, quilting, stained glass, mosaics, and more. But none "stuck" until I took my first jewelry making class in 2007. After filling up my jewelry box (and my family's) I decided to start sharing my pieces with the world - and was pleasently surprised that people liked them. My work combines a variety of techniques including chainmaille, silversmithing, copper heat patinas, beading, resins, wire wrapping - and anything else that catches my fancy.

SoapScent-sations: Etsy Publisher

While a sewing machine and a paint brush are my beginings in handmade, my venture into handmade soap began in 2005 when my youngest son developed skin allergies. Nothing seemed to work and then I stumbled onto handmade soap and knew I had to try it! When the products I was able to work helped clear his skin and the rest of the family fell in love with it too...it was time to share it with the world! My business opened in 2007 after nearly 3 years of practicing/sharing/gifting my soap creations. Not only do I love using quality handmade soap, but I also love making it! Each bar, each new recipe is made with love.
Aside from soap, what do I do? If it is considered an art/craft I have probably at the very least tried it. Sewing, quilting, and glass mosaics rank up there, but I dabble with pencil and paper occasionally. But be not afraid, despite many attempts to crochet and knit, I have no success with that. And last, but certainly not least, there is my full time job--raising two beautiful boys into fine young men who also have a love for the world of handmade. I want them to know that the things they create with their own hands and hearts will always be the most prized!

Hi, my name is Sarah Ranes and I am a soapmaker living in central PA with my husband , 15 year old son and our wild husky dog Sitka. I guess I have always lived the Handmade lifestyle. My Mom, who was a very creative person, made all my clothes when I was young. She was always sewing or painting or crocheting. I went to art school and studied photography which I have pursued in one form or another, my entire adult life. I came to soapmaking through my love of cooking, herbs, and essential oils. I am always amazed to see all the wonderful things people create.

thewiresmith:

I’m a native New Englander who still lives here with my husband and 3 cats. I love travel, wine, books, heavy metal, sports cars and motorcycles. Making jewelry is the only “girly” thing I do. I don’t cook, sew, crochet or needlepoint. My mom tried to teach me to knit once. Once. But the jewelry thing has to do with metal and I’m all about the metal. I used to be a serious photographer and who knows, I might pick that back up again, but for now this is creative outlet enough. The designs I use are simple and modern, with clean lines and none of the fusty overload of a lot of typical wire jewelry. I love gemstones and good lampwork glass and work mainly in sterling silver.
