 Before the election, before the hurricane and the snowstorm which followed, I was extremely fortunate to have participated in the Maker's Market at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Ct.

(To say that I was starstruck all weekend is an understatement.)  First I met Lisa Linhardt who  is the Founder and Creative Director of Linhardt Design - a custom and ready-made jewelry gallery in NYC.

Here's her gallery storefront at
 156 1st Avenue in NYC. 

Her jewelry is gorgeous, and all of her designs are made from sustainable materials and recycled metals.

The tagua ring is made from the seeds ("vegetable ivory") of a South American palm tree. 

Her designs are timeless and as lovely as she is!
Next I met Frances Palmer and her assistant Kim. You may have seen Frances and her  ceramic work on TV and in many, many publications. If you join her email list, Frances will alert you to sales and news.

Her skill, her wit, and her individual style are all so inspiring.

 I was coveting the piece below
for the whole show...

How does one choose?

At the far end of the Maker's Market tent I could see a large light sculpture by the internationally renowned Warren Muller. What a treat to see his work in person.

His website is amazing.

I will share more work of the Maker's Mark artists and crafters next time! Thanks for tuning in!
