Our good friends at Adventure Orange will once again be hanging at Handmade City for tomorrow’s event. In fact it almost wouldn’t be an event if these ladies were there. Cool DIY divas making things like clothing, toys, jewelry… we love it all! If you haven’t already stopped by their bricks & mortar location you must! They are located in the Village of East Davenport at 2218 East 11th street. You can browse the Adventure Orange Facebook page to see pics of their most recent work and learn about the DIY classes they currently offer.
Visit Turtle Studio for custom designed purses, bags and mixed fiber designs! Locate at Suite 305, Bucktown Center for the Arts. Designer, creator & owner is Marilyn Fields.
Only three HMC4 spotlights left and they are all so good! Today’s treasure is Decadence – Recycled. Restyled. Leather jewelry and accessories.We had a chance to see Decadence at WALOC 8 last December and their accessories are just as high quality & gorgeous in person as they look in the photos above. We are super excited to have Andrew Kingsbury, owner/designer of Decadence, and his lovely collection of repurposed jewelry at Handmade City Spring 2012. Just another great reason why you should visit us this Saturday… ya hear?!
Visit the Decadence Etsy shop here, and ‘like’ it out on Facebook too!
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)
Okay I admit, it is weird writing one of these for myself! Ladynoble is run by your truly – Rose Noble. Some of you may know me as the Handmade City lady, or art lady, or mama lady… I have so many hats it is kind of crazy! In my booth I will be selling fun new art, décor and handmade jewelry. Please find me and say “hello”, I really love getting to make new friends at each Handmade City event! ~ Rose, HMC Lady
