Peg creates unique baubles, from beautiful beaded necklaces, earrings and the like to boot bracelets using silver, brass, and copper in her artwork.
For those who like something a little BOLDER, you may find a few ‘skeletons’ , but not in Peg’s closet – in her creations. And if you want a little BANG for you buck….some bullet jewelry also!
Peg has designs for both men and for women!
Sharon Martyn’s beautiful stained glass creations are embellished with vintage jewelry and/or new baubles. Her sun catchers adorn the shop and are so beautiful, especially when the sunlight hits them!

This idea came to me from my friend, Joani, who watched her mom do this nifty bit of trickery many times ~
If you just can’t seem to get that stubborn candle nub out from your favorite glass candle holder, just put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes or so….or if you’re like me, a couple days until you remember where you put it after you’ve looked for it for the original 20 minutes. But I digress.
When you take it out of the freezer, just run a knife around the edge of the candle and it will pop right out!
I do recommend waiting until the glass has come to room temp or run it under hot water before lighting the new candle in it.
“I was born and raised in Neihart, Montana. Growing up with few possessions, the mountain behind our house became a giant playground full of nature’s wonders from moss covered rocks to spring creeks. My love of what nature could produce was firmly rooted. My family moved to California when I was in my teens and I eventually graduated with a degree in design and industry from San Francisco State University. I then went on to work for a custom plastics company for six years. In 1974 when the company moved, I realized my true passion was in sculpting. While this was happening, a stream of industrial model-making jobs flowed in and shortly my art career was put on hold in order to tap into more profitable jobs to raise our family. The Plasticsmith became the company name I would use for the next 33 years. The work served the purpose of putting our kids through college but I could never shake off the “art bug.”
About 10 years ago, I started carving pieces from wood during the spare time I could find. A few years later, I started sculpting with clay. In 2007 I closed down my business and I now had the freedom to pursue my real calling. I began working with traditional clay pieces, then turned to a 2-part epoxy clay mixed with wood, wire mesh, steel rods and foam. This opened up new dimensions and many odd creatures were born.
I feel fortunate to have the time, and honored to share my works with whomever may enjoy them”.

Ari Eickert was born and educated in Germany. As a young man he played
Jazz and his band, the Flower Street Jazzmen, was heard on the radio and in different venues throughout Europe.
After Ari received his degree as a Mechanical Engineer, he emigrated to the United States with $15.00 in his pocket. He found that it was impossible to play Jazz in New York without being a union member, even in Harlem.
Within a year, Ari was drafted into the U.S. Army. He then earned a post-graduate degree in Industrial Management and for the next 20 years he worked for various companies in the United States and overseas. He founded and ran his own manufacturing company until he retired 25 years later.
In retirement, Ari started to play music again and to paint, which had always been a passion throughout his life. Ari’s preferred media is watercolor and his favorite subjects are related to water and boats or topics from his world-wide travels.

This stuff is amazing for transforming old, beat up frames into bright, shiny new-ish ones!
And here’s a super duper helpful cleaning hint ~ use it on stainless steel. Not only does it shine it up without streaks, it smells nice too.
Jennifer takes inspiration from the lake and beach with her pottery, and even incorporates driftwood into some of her pieces!
“As a graduate of Kent State with a BA in Graphic Design I have worked as a graphic designer for corporations and non-profits for many years. I have always had jobs that require creativity but have decided it is time to get back to my roots of pottery.
When I am not indulging my two fantastic sons and awesome husband, I am playing in the mud to produce my own unique line of ceramics”.
