While mixin' and minglin', my eyes instantly gravitted toward Jenine Bressner because of her stunning lampwork bead necklace. She was kind enough to let me hold the colorful piece and admire it up close. The mixed patterns, textures, and shapes were other-worldly and the construction was beautiful. In addition to glasswork, Jenine works in textiles and is starting to delve into chandelier making. Visit Janine's blog, Fireworks page, and Flickr page to see what she's up to next. Click here to see a cool clip of her showing Martha Stewart a thing or two about bead makin'.
You just cannot ignore a bear head walking around the room, especially if it's a crocheted head with handmade polymer teeth. Last summer, Thom and I were mesmerized by Huckleberry Desingore's handmade heads when we saw them at the MassMOCA gift shop. Once we spotted her at Craftland, we just knew she had to be the mastermind behind those beasts. Huckleberry makes wearable art that has been seen in print, on stage, and on happy customers. Her most exciting one yet? She got to present a crocheted Stan Lee head to Stan Lee himself! It doesn't get much cooler than that. Enter Huckleberry's world by visiting her Huck and Stuff website.
