Jennifer Worden, Jennifer L. Worden Arts
“Jennifer uses post-consumer glassware in the creation of her art. Conferring a new, unexpected life discarded glass is the inspiration that makes this work possible. She melts, fuses and reshapes glass to create whimsical pieces designed to please the eye, engage the mind, and encourage a sustainable perspective."

“We are a husband and wife team in Akron, Ohio, who began making homemade, cold-process soap in our little apartment kitchen the summer we got married in 2002. We’ve been creating hand-crafted, artisan soaps for more than 20 years. What started as a hobby soon became a passion! All of our soaps are handmade with love in single batches. We pride ourselves on being environmentally conscience by using minimal packaging, natural ingredients, and essential oils, and we strive to use sustainably harvested and organic materials whenever possible."

Mallory Tulcewicz, Mud by Mallory
“As a potter, I am constantly inspired by the sense of touch and the tactile qualities of clay. My work is heavily influenced by vintage color palettes and textures of the 60’s and 70’s. I use vintage fabric to roll the texture into my clay, creating a unique and organic feel to each piece. My goal is to create pieces that not only look beautiful, but also feel comforting and can be used in every day life."
Amanda Nugent, Opal Rose Creative Studio
“As a local graphic designer, I find immense joy in bringing laughter to people's lives through my creative work. My passion lies in crafting quirky and humorous greeting cards and gifts, each infused with a dash of sass that adds a unique flair to every occasion. The name of my business, Opal Rose Creative Studio, carries a deeply personal meaning. It's a tribute to my daughter, who spent an incredible 70 days in the NICU. Her resilience and determination have taught me that the impossible is possible when you set your mind to it. Opal Rose is a reminder that life is full of surprises and inspiration can come from the most unexpected places. With Opal Rose, I aim to share that spirit of possibility and joy with every product I create, ensuring that they bring smiles and laughter to those who receive them."
Kristin LaFine, Wild Roots Herbal Care
“Herbal products; extracts, teas, salves, deodorant, magnesium lotion, golden milk, herbal coffee, face beauty serum, etc."
Brittany Korona, Gem and Point
“Gem & Point is an eclectic and nature inspired jewelry line created by artist Brittany Korona. Taking strong influences from nature, Brittany incorporates a variety of organic elements into her work - deer antlers, crystals, feathers, plants and even insects are among the components you will find in her pieces. The technique used to create Gem & Point jewelry is called electroforming, which is a metal plating process where chemicals and alchemy are used to grow copper directly onto an object. This method creates truly unique and organic feeling pieces. Gem & Point's design vibes are eclectic, bohemian, earthy and you can always count on plenty of statement pieces in the mix. Brittany is a bit of a wandering artist and loves to dabble in other mediums - so you might spot a painting or wall hanging piece in the mix, oh and she always comes with a magical assortment of crystals ready to find their new homes."
