2 ODD BIRDS
2 ODD BIRDS is a culmination of an artist’s passion to bring you unique, nature-inspired jewelry. With the use of natural stones and antiqued brass, I bring you my vision. Totally sourced in the United States I hand pick each stone and start my process from there. Complimenting my stones with brass that has been oxidized gives an aged weathered appeal, as if the stones were dug from the ground.
I do not pride myself on pretty, shiny, and perfect but more like Cleveland my pieces are unique, raw, and have imperfections. My passion is to transform these pieces into beautiful wearable jewelry for you to love and appreciate.

I have been a collector of ideas, skills and techniques for 45 years. And although my creative journey has led me to many places I always seem to end up back at personal adornment. My jewelry at this point in my life is a combination of enameling, metal smithing and lamp work (there may be a few other skills thrown in there). I like jewelry to be low maintenance to wear and keep up. And although my products run the gambit of style from contemporary to funky or vintage, they are all made with quality materials and workmanship. Also, having been a teacher of glass bead making, metal smithing and jewelry construction for over 25 years, I love to share my knowledge and passion for my art.

I embarked upon the first leg of the journey that is Fear’s Confections just over four years ago, in March of 2010, as a home-based mail order and catering business. With growing demand, our small home kitchen was quickly overrun with candy and brownies piled onto every flat surface. On August 4th 2013, Fear’s Confections made the leap to an out-of-home production and retail space. This progression allowed for the expansion of product lines and better service for our local customers. In addition to this store front, our products are also available in three other retail locations in the Cleveland area as well as online for pickup or delivery with SkipTheDishes.com.
A wide variety of handmade chocolates are also available. Caramels, toffees, truffles, and pecan turtles are just a small sampling of what we create. All of the products offered are made in small batches using the freshest possible ingredients with no additional preservatives giving them a truly homemade essence. My products as well as my store reflect my rockabilly personality through a clearly vintage feel, with a splash of modern edge. Everything is made by hand with the care most expect to have been long forgotten by today’s mass produced disposable society.

Gordana’s Natural Goods
Growing up in Sarajevo, I learned at an early age from my mother and grandmother about the healing and healthful properties of herbs. We didn’t resort to harsh chemicals but rather to the natural, time tested remedies of our ancestors. I learned how to grow these herbs and how to turn them into infusion oils to make products to clean, moisturize, heal and protect the body. Coming to America in May of 1999, I brought my skills and passions for healthful living with me. I am very proud of my garden–planting chamomile, lemon balm, mint, calendula, lavender etc. I then take the time to dry the herbs and make infusion oils as the base for my products. I am so proud to make homemade products that are PH neutral (not too acidic or alkaline) that have made a difference in my life and in the lives of others. Nothing makes me happier than knowing I can help provide healing or quality of life using Mother Nature’s own gifts that we have been given.

Hazelmade started small as a way to branch out from my day job as a graphic designer. My expectations were simple; I was seeking a place to grow creatively. My process began, and still remains today, by sketching out each illustration by hand. These sketches are refined, and find their way to the products through thoughtful pairing of design with the highest quality papers, fabrics, and printing processes. Central to my idea of Hazelmade is that I want to love the products I create and use them in my daily life. I seek quality materials with unique designs to add artistic style to each room of a home. I’ve discovered along the way that being part of other’s spaces, homes, and adventures is what makes Hazelmade truly unique.

I found that I liked doing a lot of different things and that is OK. That is how the name came about: miss wanderer. I go through this creative world without one purpose or direction. I go where my passion takes me.
