Craft Heaven

This weekend is ripe with craft fairs in Minneapolis. I ventured out to the No Coast Craft-O-Rama with former co-worker and new friend Jill (Hi Jill! You can delurk and comment now if you would like!) today and I plan to go to The Handmaidens' Craftmas tomorrow. I am not in the market for purchasing anything, but I did want to see what is being made by fellow local crafters and take in the sensory experience of all the beauty and creativity. Here are few of the vendors that nearly made me break my "just browsing" vow:

Becky Klay of Small Motor Designs makes really amazing textile jewelry primarily using embroidery. From afar it looks like the jewelry is made from tooled leather. I liked all of her designs, but I thought her most unique pieces were these textile lockets:

Not in my price range, but stunningly beautiful and impeccably made jewelry by bmf jewelry was a standout at the fair:

I loved the Jersey Scarves from Michelle Brusegaard (mbmb). My favorite purple one wasn't on her website, but these pretty ones were.

All of the photos in this post are from the artists' websites. Check 'em out! Each of them has lots of other pretties to be ogled and possibly purchased.


  1. I love those scarves, they were on my short list of thing to get for myself, a vase from Jenni the Potter won out though.

  2. Sigh. I prolly should've braved the crowds and gone witcha.

  3. Color me delurked... I loved the No Coast craft show, despite the crowds. Very inspiring.

  4. trin-check out michelle's blog and go back a few posts--you and paul will get a laugh. stay snuggly today
