As in her stained glass work, Jeanine Erickson looks to the natural world for design inspiration. During the month of October, she will be showing a collection of jewelry that features hemispherical and anticlastic raised shapes that are evocative of Autumn leaves, ocean waves, and moons. Jeanine predominantly works in sterling silver and copper. She also has steampunk inspired jewelry that incorporates vintage watch parts and her elegantly crafted chain maille weaves. Jeanine is offering a 10% discount on all of her jewelry during October.
After living in Blairstown for 31 years, Barbara Donatacci now sets up shop in Pennsylvania. Her work speaks more and more of nature, using leaves and other nature-inspired items. Although Barbara still uses the potter’s wheel frequently, hand built pottery is becoming a passion. All her glazes are green, but by using three different color clays, the results produce a variation of shade and tone. All her pieces are food safe and functional. Barbara is offering a 10 % discount on all of her pottery during October. It doesn't get any better than being 68 years old and still playing with mud.
