The Meditative Creative
In a world filled with unique individuals and incredible talents, I find it nearly impossible to describe myself as a specialist of any one specific thing. My passions are many, and I choose to foster them co-dependently. It is my true belief that in this way, I grow not only in skill, but in experience as a human being.
I'm all about growing my passions together, connecting them to every part of my life. In this way, I am always enhancing my processes of making, seeing, and being.
Newfangled Confections offers blast-from-the-past candy made with a dash of love and nostalgia. Candymaker Carrie Abbott’s modern take on grandma’s candy dish favorites is inspired by childhood memories including trips with her grandfather to Hook’s Drugstore in the late 1970s. Their signature candy, Frittle combines the classic peanut-buttery sweetness of brittle crossed with peanut fudge. The result is a kinder, softer brittle with a crispy-creamy texture and just a hint of salt. (Gluten-free and vegan).
Sara B. Jewelry
Sara B. Jewelry & Metalsmithing is rooted in the hunt for rare pieces of earth to be collected, and for those bits of natural history to be preserved and captured in unique, modern handmade jewelry. All Sara B. pieces are handcrafted in her little Midwest mess of a home studio. Her quest is to create unconventional jewelry with a bit of raw earthiness and asymmetry. Using traditional metalsmithing techniques and tools to craft jewelry that is natural yet modern, she embraces the inherent imperfections of the stones and fossils as well as her hand at work.
