Big Red Lucite Hoops by Leetie Lovendale

Get ready for some colors to pop!  Tonight we bring you some selections from the jewelry trunks at Leetie Lovendale.  These lucite baubles are the best addition to your vintage (inspired) wardrobe or a splash of color to pair with something classic.

If the work looks familiar to you, it’s because Heather DeSimone is at the head of this vintage beading machine.  On any given day you might find her tending shop at The Beadin’ Path in Freeport.  Surrounded by so many candy-colored beauties it’s no wonder her jewelry really sings.

Smart Alex, samples some berries!

Introducing “Smart” Alex, the creator and concocter behind Smart Alex Jams.  We all know that great handmade businesses often come from a passionate, creative person doing something that very labor intensive and very delicious for years and years.  And all those years they hear people telling them “This is so good, you should sell it!”  That’s exactly the story behind the Jams at Smart Alex, and we are really looking forward to picking up a jar of our own at The Big Chill on Sunday, December 2nd!

Blueberry Spice Jam by Smart Alex Jams

Good morning!  Chilly one out there…

Reversible Enamel Pendant by T.S. Mastro Enamel Jewelry

Today we feature Tracy of T.S. Mastro Enamel Jewelry.  This December will be her second time selling with The Big Thaw/Chill and we’re happy to have her!  Last May, Tracy called me before the event to say her car had lost one of its wheels on her way there.  What?!  So naturally I just figured we were down one person… but then a couple hours later who shows up?  Tracy!  Steadfast commitment to handcrafted arts, love that.

Enamel Pendant by T.S. Mastro Enamel Jewelry

T.S. Mastro’s work offers brightly colored patterns in color to suit all wardrobes and tastes – in fact, many of the pendants are reversible so they’re doing double duty.  Perfectly placed geometric accents and negative space make her pieces truly unique.
