Kim is a good Friend of mine who makes beautiful jewelry. She currently lives in Costa Rica with her Husband and baby girl Elida. Her pieces are inspired by beautiful Costa Rica and have a natural look and feel to them!
HomeGrown, HomeCrafted and HomeCooked ... nature inspires much of the work in this shop from home decor to kitchen accessories. Gardening, Crafting and Cooking are the foundations for most of the selections.
HeartFelt by Andrea is all about bringing the things that inspire her to life. Her medium is wool and she occasionally mixes in stone, glass beads and wire, among other things, to create one of a kind pieces that are often whimsical, sometimes useful and always aimed toward bringing joy. The shop is a collaborative with her daughter, Toccoa. All her work carries HeartFelt by Toccoa but is within the Mama shop...:).
Coramantic is a little shop of mixed media original textile art and illustrations. Characters and imagery created from my imagination and inspired by everyday life - cute with a hint of ugly.
She has been beading for several decades as an antidote to homogenized culture, an outlet for creative inspiration and something to do in the meantime. Her crafting is a blend of Native American tradition, Victorian sensibility, African enthusiasm and a flower child's appreciation for beads. She is always trying new techniques and incorporating themes from her garden and nature into her work. She now creates full time. She also sells her wares at a few local shops and galleries in the Santa Cruz ans San Francisco Bay area.
Nutfield Weaver is her studio where she creates pretty & practical handwoven textiles for the home. She has been weaving on an 8 shaft floor loom for over 13 years and am committed to weaving in the old way; she does not use computers or electricity to manipulate or to power her loom. Nutfield Weaver items have been featured on a variety of blogs that support the work of independent artists including Scoutie Girl & Apartment Therapy. Her preference for a homespun or natural aesthetic has led her to create a small but successful line of burlap wedding accessories.
