One week to go before the BOLDFIGURES opening, and the boutique is shaping up nicely. Awesomely, even (if that's a word). The boutique is full of all kinds of handmade goodies, and a small selection of higher-end vintage clothing and accessories. Here's a peek at some of our beautifully handmade boutique merchandise. Enjoy!
Featured Artist: Larry Schiemann
Larry's work is nothing short of amazing. This is a small sampling of what we have in stock. You will NOT believe how reasonable (read: cheap) the prices are on these expertly thrown and glazed pieces. Seriously. In addition to these larger works, we also have mugs, tumblers, small covered jars, and more.
Stella "Thrash Queen" Salamone is one creative lady. A staple of the Cleveland college radio scene for many years, Stella is also a talented artist and jewelry designer. We carry a selection of her jewelry in the boutique, which features recylced and handmade components. Her artwork is primarily collage-based, often incorporating encaustic techniques. This necklace is hands-down my favorite piece of jewelry in the boutique. Love love love it!
Sarva Natural Artisan Soaps
Read all about Sarva mastermind Michelle Gilbert in this great article by Julie Cajigas of CoolCleveland.com. These soaps are amazing. Fragrant (but not overpowering), luxurious, and all natural. Your nose really wants you to check these out!
As a mom of three very young kids, I don't know how Rifka finds the time to make jewelry, but I'm glad she does! All of her earrings are made with sterling silver hardware, perfect for sensitive, delicate flowers like myself (har! I hope you weren't drinking milk as you read that or I probably owe you a new monitor). New this month are bracelets and adorable clip-on earrings, perfect for little girls to play dress up with.
That's all for now!
