This year’s Artisan Market will bring back more than 35 returning artisans who have become familiar faces to loyal shoppers. But like creative people of all stripes, our artisans are frequently compelled to try something new. Many will bring the “best of the best” of their new ideas and skills to the Market this year. For example:
Via her business, “The Hand That Beads You,” Market co-founder Mary Baim has brought her exquisite beaded jewelry every year since the very first event in 2008. Over the years, the necklaces and bracelets became more intricate and sophisticated. Now Baim is exploring yet another complex craft and brings her new weavings to the Market—and to a new level of art. But she has not abandoned the jewelry—and her business name has just morphed, to “The Hand That Beads & Weaves You.” See her in Space #28 and visit her at www.marybaim.com.
Graphic designer Marjie Best first brought her whimsical pillows and limited edition prints to the Market in 2011. Last year she “tested the waters” for a line of one-of-a-kind graphic cuff bracelets that now drive her artisan endeavor, Studio Best. Marjie will be in Space #53 at the Market.
