Dylan Kamalay, Water Bear Clay Co
“Water Bear Clay Co. is a small women-owned business that was established in late 2019 and specializes in handmade polymer clay jewelry. Made with nickel-free metals, eclectic shapes, and intentionally mixed colors; we strive to create products with longevity and sustainability in mind."
Stephanie Baumberger, Sand Witch and Sage
“Sand Witch and Sage was created by Stephanie Baumberger, a slightly spooky (yet colorful) multimedia artist stuck in Ohio. Sand Witch and Sage is most known for specialty hand dyed and block printed apparel (mainly crop tops). This year though Stephanie’s work has taken a second focus on hand building ceramics, which you will find at her upcoming shows!"
Katie Wiebe, SewKatie Co
“I sew, using a mix of UPcycled and new materials, to create unique items for you and your home. My favorite items are my recycled wool sweater mittens, made from wool sweaters, the best winter accessory for you or for gifting."
Tasha Brandt, Fantashtic Designs
“We’re here to push the envelope of what deserves celebration through connection, creativity and, a few F-bombs. With cards, candles and gifts, we are a one stop shop for honoring the moments beyond mainstream culture."
“Randy Crider is a Lakewood, Ohio-based Illustrator best known for live painting and his work with music festivals. Recently he’s been making screen-printed posters by hand in a DIY home studio. Pulling from years of drawings normally hidden away in sketchbooks, he focuses on reimagining well-worn ideas alongside a cavalcade of spacemen, monsters, and skeletons. Every print is limited to fewer than 100 copies and are signed and numbered by the artist on the back."
Kate Craine, Sweet Punkette
“I take old, unplayable vinyl records and create clocks and jewelry. 45rpm record clocks are made from the actual 45 single, and make awesome gifts, especially when you find that special artist or song! The cuff bracelets are hand painted, hand-sanded and shaped (many are Cleveland inspired art). The earrings are cut from the original LP labels- all one-of-a-kind and unique. I also have tarot card necklaces and celebrity mug shot necklaces- which may be the best conversation starter I’ve ever worn! My shop name comes from my nickname given to me by Betsey Johnson. When I worked for her, she would call me her "Sweet Punkette""
Ashley Smith, Atlas & Aether
“Atlas & Aether blends traditional metalsmithing with innovative techniques such as electroforming and 3D printing to create jewelry that is intricately structured and serendipitously organic. There is something for everyone: from our popular stacker rings made with limited small batches of gemstones to one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces."
