Hello gorgeous hand-crafted jewelry! Ann Hartley is a true artisan, her fine silver and gold jewelry is absolutely lovely. Shoppers that came to our Handmade Holiday show last December got a glimpse of what this lady can create with a jewelry hammer. We definitely saw some lucky ladies going home with Hartley Studio goodies and a few no-so-lucky ladies looking mighty jealous. Stop by Ann’s booth next Saturday and at the very least try on one of her stunning necklaces! (here is the Hartley Studio Facebook page)
If you thought the awesomeness of our vendor spotlight HMC4 series would soon fade – you were wrong. With only 10 more days until Handmade City 4 we are still posting amazing designers like today’s feature *innad*! Just look at the small selection above, super cool wallets and accessories made in Wisconsin! Trust us, we have seen these in person and they are just as rad as they look in those thumbnails. Definitely swing by the *innad* booth and grab some goodies for yourself and your pals. Any pattern/fabric can be made into bi-fold, checkbook, or passport sizes so if you’d like something in a different style, let Danni know!
Today’s spotlight comes from Des Moines, Iowa. Kim Hutchison, owner and designer of Jbirdstitch, will be making the drive to Davenport to join our vendor crew at HMC4! The Jbirdstitch booth will offer handmade oven mitts, market bags, personal and home accessories, made from resourced and vintage fabrics. Jbirdstitch designs are one of a kind items from repurposed materials! We love the adorable oven mitts and vintage felted shoulder bags. Visit the Jbirdstitch Etsy shop and leave Kim a comment on the Jbirdstitch Facebook page telling her which items you love!

Make sure you stop by the Klarkowski booth on April 28 and let Brittany know she rocks. P.s. She will also be selling artwork that is pretty amazing, so plan on spending some cash when you visit!
Okay I admit, it is weird writing one of these for myself! Ladynoble is run by your truly – Rose Noble.

Please find me and say “hello”, I really love getting to make new friends at each Handmade City event! ~ Rose, HMC Lady

What can we say about our pal Lil’ Squeeks that we haven’t already said?! We absolutely love this shop and are excited to see Lil’ Squeeks expand their pet items and filter in more people goodies too! If you plan on attending HMC4 (which by this point you would be crazy not to) you definitely need to visit Mary over at Lil’ Squeeks to pick up some presents for you beloved pet! ~ visit the Lil’ Squeeks Etsy shop and Facebook page.
“As an artist, I’m influenced by the world and beyond, by photos, dreams, architecture, music, people, emotions and color. I try to capture the images in my mind, discover the hidden ones and translate them into my own language with paint to create a visional journey.” ~ Regan
