CERAMICS BY JUDITH

I was born in Jerusalem, Israel and moved to the USA about 10 years ago. In Israel, I worked as a clinical pharmacist in a hospital, and continued as a marketing manager for pharmaceutical companies. When I moved to Arizona (my husband is a native ArizonAN), I decided to turn my hobby to a full time job. Since I love to cook, I decided to make my own dinnerware, and soon after, people asked to purchase them. As with most women, I love jewelry and decided to make my own. Now I make both ceramics and jewelry and seLL them at Arts festivals and local stores.

OLIVIA'S SMILE DECOR

Olivia's Smile Decor was born in 2014 with the birth of our first granddaughter, Olivia, and a tugging on my heart that God was using my experience in the decade prior to prepare me for such a time as this.  I spent most of my career working for two very large retailers managing seasonal programs and assisting vendors in developing production and shipping efficiencies. Naturally, I am passionate about running the most efficient processes in my own business and using high quality fabrics with fun designs and interesting colors to make gorgeous pillow covers. All fabric is purchased from retailers and wholesalers in the United States, and all production is done from my clean, smoke-free studio in Phoenix, AZ on heavy duty industrial sewing machines. I love to add detail like invisible zippers, contrasting or complementing trim, and professionally finished edges. I also love to showcase with color, and pick colors and designs that are on trend and make a room bright with character, reflecting my clients' personalities.

R3 SK8 Products

Laura Page’s kids love to skateboard. And Laura loves to support them in their boarding accomplishments. But what happens when a skateboard breaks? Well, that’s where Laura’s craftiness comes in to save the day.

Armed with some really cool power tools and an eye for design, Laura started recycling those broken bits & pieces into “totally rad” accessories. After meeting the approval of her kids (and all their friends!), a family business–R3 SK8 Products–was born.

VIM + VIGOR CANDLE CO.

My name is Kristin Boyd and I am a candle maker and the proud owner of Vim + Vigor Candle Co. I started making candles in 2015 as a weekend project to salvage a cabinet full of half burned candles. That fun weekend project turned into a goal to figure out how to make a better quality candle that burned evenly from the start. A year of research and over 100 test trials later…Eureka! I had successfully made a candle that burned cleanly and evenly down to the last drop of wax while filling my whole house with its aroma. I have been making that same quality candle ever since. My passion for repurposing old materials is what sparked this labor of love and I chose copper as my candle vessel so that it might inspire others to repurpose the candle after it burns.
