Renegade Craft Fair Review Part 2

I would like to share another fabulous artist from the Renegade Craft Fair Chicago, Prologue by Shawna Rose. Prologue is a line of custom purses, sounds pretty normal right? Wrong. Shawna Rose creates one of a kind purses made from vintage books. Talk about original! These are GREAT gifts for teachers, librarians, or just plain old book lovers. Check it out at www.shawnarose.com.

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.
