Handmade in St. Croix

I just got back from my 2nd annual trip to St. Croix.  It is the perfect vacation spot because they do not have a large tourist population, the drinks are fabulous, and all I did was scuba dive and read on the beach!  I was looking for a break from work and inspiration for my own life, and I knew just where to find it.

As soon as I could I went to visit Mitchell Larson Studio in Christiansted.  Jan Mitchell has developed several new techniques in the art of fusing glass and each piece is more and more inspirational.  It is my absolute dream to have a studio/shop like this.  When you walk in you can smell the kilns upstairs where Jan works, and the glass is displayed in the main room.  Her husband Steffen Larson displays his photography in another room of the studio.  The combination is breathtaking.  It is a true inspiration to any artist that steps foot in there.

Renegade Craft Fair Chicago

I went to the Renegade Craft Fair to do a little holiday shopping last Saturday, and I should have brought more money! There were TONS of fabulous crafters and artists. Everywhere I looked I wanted to buy something, unfortunately most of it was for me and not exactly the holiday shopping I was planning on doing. I would like to share a few spotlight reviews with everyone. So stay tuned for a new artist each day.

I absolutely fell in love with everything Swear Jar Design. It was one of those moments when I realized that I couldn’t have custom designed something so perfect for myself. The entire collection of handmade jewelry is completely cohesive but not at all repetitious. An incredible collection of buckles (my personal favorite), cuff links, earrings, and bracelets hand crafted from nickel, how cool is that?? I had to keep myself true to my promise of only buying gifts (for other people) at the renegade fair, but I will most certainly be back to calm my post holiday blues. Check out www.swearjardesign.com for unique and fabulously crafted handmade jewelry.

Don’t forget a new artist review tomorrow!
