She and her husband have some seriously eclectic talents going on, that lead to a wonderfully diverse and original shop. They hail from South Carolina, and have been creating for many years. It shows in the obvious quality of their work.
Just look at that beadwork! That doesn't come without Karen's 30 years of experience, for sure. Just for good measure, here's some more.
And I promised diversity, didn't I? How about some gorgeous beading on a trinket box... or a serious statement necklace?
Now that's a necklace to give some personality to a little black dress! I think I need to own it. They enjoy creating one-of-a-kind functional pieces of art, and I think they've succeeded, no?
Enough of the beads. There's more! They work in natural materials to create a variety of things, like leather, bone, and antlers.
Karen also likes to weave on inkle looms and tri looms. That's how she makes adorable dog leashes and beautiful shawls!
And on top of all that? She crochets! My only lament is that the adorable dog doesn't come with the sweater.
Right? And last, but definitely not least, I have to show you one of their selection of gourd birdhouses. Oh, how I love these birdhouses! I need one of these too. Seriously.
Believe me when I tell you this is just a small sampling of what you can find in their Handmade Artists Shop and Etsy Shop. And despite the variety and volume of their currently-existing wares, they love to try out new ideas, techniques and designs, and absolutely adore custom orders, so be sure to contact them.
