In her booth and online you will find some of her favorite pieces from her ever-evolving exclusive line of jewelry, handcrafted right here, in PA. She offers a wide range of distinctive jewelry handcrafted with finest beads from around the world. Her jewelry is made from the highest quality materials, like vintage & antique components, precious metals, semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystal and glass beads. She like to mix things up and blend color and texture with vintage inspiration and attention to detail to get a look that is casual, elegant and fun. There are not too many techniques she hasn’t tried and she really likes to incorporate a range of them into individual pieces. She loves combining unusual elements like beadweaving with words she’s stamped on metal or other components she’s made, but her biggest inspiration comes from vintage & antique buttons & jewelry components that you will find in the majority of her pieces… most of which are 50-100 years old and a precious few even date back to the 1800’s.

FURNACE CREEK FORGE
Allen Schaeffer has been hammering hot steel since the mid-nineties. He is a juried member of the Reading-Berks Guild of Craftsmen and also a member of PABA (Pennsylvania Artists-Blacksmith Association). While trying to better himself by exploring the art and mystery of blacksmithing, Allen is learning not only the old ways of this historical trade but also new and modern techniques while always expanding his skills.
Conceptual designers Denise Devine Koller & Renee Devine Tracey (sisters) have over 40 yrs. of designing experience. Their name originated from their maiden name “Devine” and their goal is to offer you heavenly, divine, one of a kind quality jewelry, accessories and clothing at affordable prices! Some of their jewelry designs include, earrings, pendants, necklaces and bracelets. They also create beautiful silk and wool blend scarves, shawls, scharfs (cross between a scarf and a shawl), ponchos, jackets and vests.
Tracy is a self-taught blacksmith artist who creates art from recycled materials. He uses, repurposes, or upcycles discarded material, old rusty tools and unique pieces of metal, then gives them a new life. He uses a forge, anvil, hand tools and where needed a welder. Just like in nature these creations are unique and no two are identical. His recent creations are stamped with a Celtic ruin meaning “Joy”. He hopes these unique creations bring “Joy” to you as much as they do to him.
BILL KASSEL FINE ART
Born in Chester County in 1951, Bill Kassel considers himself to be a Contemporary Realist. He started painting around the age of 12 and developed his interest in painting through his high school art classes. His passion for painting was fueled by other Chester Country arts and the works of Norman Rockwell inspired him. He also has a passion for Colonial Williamsburg and other historical sites. As an artist, he is inspired by everything around him. He is fascinated by the hidden color and textures that can be found in light and shadow. A primary goal of his art is to bring awareness to the wonderful world that surrounds us. He tries to capture this vision in his paintings so others can see the beauty as he sees it. His subject matter is primarily from the Chester, Berks and Lebanon County areas of Pennsylvania. While he sometimes works with acrylics & oil, his favorite medium is gouache because of its versatility. He mainly works with gouache and watercolors. A graduate of Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia, his works are included in many collections throughout the east coast.
SOAPS BY ELIZABETH
Soap making is a centuries old craft that was necessary for all households. Elizabeth’s soap making experience started about 7 years ago. Since then, Elizabeth has become a member of the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild and a certified soap maker. The joy in combining natural oils, caustic soda and essential or fragrance oils to produce a bathing experience that cature’s one’s senses is truly exciting. The mystical chemisty behind the saponification process is both intriguing and rewarding to produce eye catching designs that are both fun and healthy for one’s body. To add to the experience, Elizabeth adds various lotions and spa products that both compliment her artisan soap and enhance the overall bathing experience.
Handmade ceramic pottery.
JESSIE’S CORNER CLAY
Patti Umlauf has been designing and sculpting with polymer clay for over 30 years concentrating on seasonal pieces. In the past few years, she has focused her polymer sculptin on Birds of Pennsylvania and Birds of the Eastern Shore. She does still offer sheep and miniatures.
A few years ago, Angela Krick knit her husband a hat and everywhere he wore it, people would ask him about it and where he bought it. A coworker requested a hat so Angela gifted him one and he also reported that wherever he went, people wanted to know about the hat. That is when Anglea and her husband, Chuck, realized that people were attracted to the color because it is not something they can find in retail stores. They started Skeines making hats in 2018. They source undyed yarn from suppliers that can certify that the animals and the environment are treated with respect during the wool growing process. The yarn is dyed by one of several methods in their shop, then dried and wound on to cones. Of course, wool is a renewable resource because after their once a year shearing, sheep return to the field to grow more wool. Their product line has expanded, but all of their products still offer unique combinations of color that you will not find anywhere else.
