Featured Artists: Larry & Linda Mayes


American Craft Endeavors is proud to have Larry & Linda Mayes in the 3rd Annual Downtown Venice Labor Day Weekend Craft Festival in Venice, FL on September 3rd & 4th, 2011.

Larry & Linda will be interviewed by WWSV-ABC and their segment will air on Thursday, September 1st at 5:50PM on the “Suncoast Scene” and on the Sunrise News on Friday, September 2nd. Make sure you are on the look-out for their interviews!

Born and raised in Missouri and now living in southwest Florida, Larry and Linda are now embarking on a new journey in their lives.  They are working together to create “One-Of-A-Kind” wearable art from bamboo tiles.  Each bamboo tile has been individually created by the artists.  A miniature image of an original photograph by Linda (an award winning and nationally published photographer), painting, vintage print or collage adorns every pendant.  The renewable bamboo tile provides a warm and unique piece of jewelry that is ecologically friendly. 

The image is finished with multiple coats of a water based, UV protective coating for enhanced ultraviolet durability and abrasion resistance.  The bamboo tiles are then combined with an eclectic mix of materials to enhance the beauty of each bamboo tile.

Here are some examples of their work below:
