A few of the crafters you will be able to meet this weekend include:
Cindy Pinyard: Ladies Accessories
First, we would like to introduce to you Cindy Pinyard. Cindy’s scarves are sewn in New England and can be ordered in 2 sizes and range of fashionable colors and designs. Additionally, her ceramic scarf slides are handformed, glazed and fired in our kilns and available in a variety of colors, textures, and finishes. You can view more of her beautiful work HERE.
Katherine Weisinger: Jewelry
Next, we have Katherine Weisinger. Katherine uses real flowers and leaves in her jewelry. They are protected from fading by enriching the original color. Each petal and leaf is delicately hand-painted using lacquer, 24k gold and sterling silver. Her work is stunning! Take a look at more of her pieces HERE.
Dan Johnson: Paintings
The final fine crafter we are going to introduce to you today is Dan Johnson. Dan tries to create fresh, clean images with a bit of whimsy. His artwork is transferred via a printing process in which the image is actually “baked” into the surface of the product and results in a highly durable, washable surface and a brilliant color reproduction that will last for years. Dan’s work is unlike anything we have ever seen – his booth is going to be a must-see! You can check-out his website HERE.
You will be able to meet the fine crafters mentioned above along with 100 other fine crafers from across the state of Florida and the United States.
