Here is a little preview from some of the vendors that will be a part of the show on June 29 – 30. 2024! Mark your calendars and plan to attend.
OlyArtesania: “I’m Gretchen Newman, and OlyArtesania is my local handmade jewelry and lapidary arts. I do an artistic mix of the Pacific Northwest woods and South American style. I have been making silver jewelry by hand for over 30 years. My pieces have a lot of Chilean influence, as I learned silversmithing from artisans there – bold and earthy, each piece unique and individually inspired by the stones, metals and natural textures. I work mostly with sterling, fine silver and natural stones, many from South America or the Pacific Northwest. Since I am also fascinated with materials and want each thing to live its best life, I like to minimize waste, I use lots of recycled materials, melt things down and re-forge the metals to use again. My products are made with start-to-finish care and artistry to last and be shared through generations. All made locally in Olympia!” You can find her on Instagram at @olyartesania
Mineral Mandalas “Together Allie and I (Mark) turned our shared passion for rocks and minerals into our business. We enjoy being a conduit for unique artifacts created by the earth to reach their homes. We carefully select what we offer and we take pride in that our business is enthusiasm based. We love being part of the mineral business and are grateful that we can make a living sharing our passion.”
Peace of the Earth Jewelry. Her booth will be offering hundreds of pendants, wrapped with sterling silver or 14k gold-filled wire!
Freeland Art Shack – “My stones are mostly all gathered on the western shores of Whidbey Island. My favorite type of stone to work with would be Concretions aka Clay Babies, Mud Babies or Fairy Stones. But since they are hard to come by I’ll work with any type of stone as long as the texture is smooth enough. I paint intricately detailed designs that often have sea urchin like textures when completed. From painting, to drying, to my lengthy resin process, it usually takes 4 weeks to fully finish a piece, sometimes longer. Each piece gets a tremendous amount of time and love for a quality look and finish.”
Bunnies on Fire: Calcite indoor fountains, cranberry garnet schist, lizardite.
