Featured Shop: Ritzy and Glitzy

Featured Shop:  Ritzy and Glitzy 

Shop Description:

My artisan jewelry is designed and professionally handcrafted using some of the finest materials. The pieces in my line consist of semi-precious stones, silver, gold plated, Swarovski crystals and pearls, and genuine leather.

My elegant pieces have accessorized many brides on their wedding day as well as their mothers and mothers of the groom. Although elegant pieces are my specialty, I design and create pieces for every style and occasion.

I spend a lot of time making sure that every detail of each piece is perfect. My jewelry is "made with love." 

Where did you learn your craft?:

I've always loved jewelry. I'm drawn to it. I also love to express my creative side. I have been making jewelry since the 70's. You know, the hippie days. Technically, I've been making jewelry since I was a tike. Remember pop beads? So, I guess my mom started me off and I've been honing my craft ever since.

What inspires you?:
My love of creating jewelry is my biggest inspiration, but the amazing feedback I receive from my customers fills my heart with joy and inspires me to continue pleasing people with my designs.

Featured Shop: Rustic Groves Designs

Featured Shop:  Rustic Groves Designs 



Shop Description:  

I love to create things from a passage in time. From the piece of fallen aspen, a shed antler or hand molding a single rose. When the design is complete, it is truly one of a kind, made with personal feelings and inspiration. I am enveloped with images of enjoyment and satisfaction, knowing that what was once a simple piece of wood, antler or paper can become in my hands a true artistic expression.

Where did you learn your craft?:

When I was very little, my mother was very ill. My Aunt Mary would come from back east to take care of me and my siblings. She had so much class, my Aunt, and taught me how to express myself in paper designs. These teachings eventually developed into my own creative work with items that are found not only in nature, but everyday life.

What inspires you?:

I am inspired by delicate things, timeless things. Things that might bring people back to a memory in time.


I am from a small town in Montana. I love the outdoors, the forest, walking through the grass. All things in nature, from pigeon berries to tall pine.

Featured Shop: Amelia Costa Art

Shop description:

I started my art career as a painter. Clay was a challenge and a door to unlimited possibilities. It allowed me to express more than just one interest, by combining the aspects of sculpture and illustration. And even after all this time, I still am in love with the medium. I know that like all loves, it will stay with me forever.
Amelia Costa Art is an opportunity to share my work you. Enjoy!

Where did you learn your craft?:
 I was studying painting  in college, when I had to take an elective course. I took pottery and was completely hooked. I found a way to combine my painting experience with my love of the clay medium. 

What inspires you?:
I am inspired mostly by nature. I live in Florida . Here the colors and light are extraordinary, and I try to include them in my work.

I was born in Peru. My family moved to the US when I was 20 years old. My career path started in a completely different direction. But I was always interested in "making" things. I decided to go back to school and learn and be inspired by other artists. I live in Florida with my husband, John   McCoy who is a potter , and our dog Tony ( studio dog extraordinaire).
