Bryan Kelly ~ Woodworking

IMG_5360
Bryan grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio area where he still lives with his wife, Penny.  He was always interested in woodworking and in furniture making. “In my teens and through college I worked with my brother-in-law who was a home construction contractor. I learned much of this trade through this hands-on experience.  During this time, I continually read and developed my wood working knowledge and skills”.
Bryan attended Baldwin Wallace University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Sociology. After several years of teaching, he changed careers and entered the business field as a computer analyst and then opened an office in Cleveland for a software company.
While traveling those career paths, he never lost his love of wood working and 21 years ago opened his own business, building heirloom quality furniture and wood pieces in various styles from traditional to contemporary.  He enjoys working with customers to make their vision into a functional work of art.
Bryan uses unique woods and finishes to create one-of-a kind pieces. He also offers instruction on a variety of wood topics.
His work has been featured in the Tauton Press Fine Wood Working Magazine
and in the Cleveland Plain Dealer Magazine.

 

 

 

 

Suz Priestas ~ Jewelry Designer

Hi, I am Suz, local jewelry artist and owner of Evolving Design Jewelry.

Throughout my journey of becoming a self taught artistic jewelry designer, I discovered my passion for creating jewelry.  Adoring many different styles, I find my pieces to be a very personal statement.

Working with the belief that a “voice of intention” is at the heart of each piece;
my goal is to listen to that voice, and bring it to light through my designs.
As an artist, I aim to reach an audience that my creations will resonate with.
My pieces are one-of-a-kind, handmade, original designs which I create using various techniques and mediums.
