I have been making one of a kind pieces of jewelry for fifteen years. I use fine gems, and pearls, with 14k gold or  gold filled, and also sterling silver. I am happy to create custom pieces to suit individual needs.

Sandy Squillo – Wired on Waverly (WOW)

Social media links: Facebook: Wired on Waverly – (WOW)

I am a 34 year resident of Clarendon Hills, Illinois. Choosing my business name, Wired on Waverly (WOW), was an easy choice. A few years ago, I taught myself how to design ‘jewelry with a twist’, after my children gifted me a few rolls of wire to play with. Did you notice how WOW upside-down spells MOM? My unique style of wire wrapping allows the beauty of the stones, gems and crystals to shine through. No two pieces are alike, and that’s what keeps the whole creative process fresh and exciting for me.

I’m proud to be the organizer of my community’s effort to make face masks during this time. Since March 21, Clarendon Hills Cares – Mask Makers, has hand sewn and donated over 7,000 masks to area first responders, essential workers and non-profit organizations. So very proud of my community, all the volunteers and those who continue to sew!

From a young age, Fiber Arts have been a part of my life, learning to knit and sew from my mother. Eventually progressing to all kinds of Embroidery. When I discovered weaving in the mid 90’s, I was in love! Inspiration comes from the colors and the yarns. What makes me proud to be a weaver is that traditions are carried on.  There are never-ending design possibilities which I love exploring. All my items are handwoven one of a kind, one size fits all.

I’ve always been a lover of paint. I vividly remember the excitement I felt opening that  rectangular tin filled with round cakes of watercolor paint in elementary school. From that point on, I have wanted to explore and express within the inviting purity of paint. In 1988 I had a beach side shop where I hand painted women’s clothing. I was using acrylic paint in abundance! One morning I had cleaned my palette off, and had peeled a large colorful piece of variegated and textured acrylic paint from it.  Some friends of mine came into the shop (actually it was my minister and his wife). During our brief conversation, I showed them the peeled up paint and said, “This is too pretty to throw away, but I don’t know what to do with it.”The husband said, “Oh, you should cut it up and make it into jewelry!”

We all laughed about it. I was like “Yeah right, I should try it!”

After they left I thought “Wow, that could have been an answer to prayer! I should do it!” I cut it up, glued earring posts on the back, and put them on little cards with the hand painted shirts. And they started selling!

That year I discovered that the dried acrylic paint, peeled from the artist palette, is a wonderful material for jewelry. Since then I have evolved the process and techniques, but still start each piece with the dried paint peeled from the artist palette. This year I celebrate 32 years of Parts of Art.

I was born and raised in Chicago. Now live in the suburbs (Buffalo Grove). I’ve drawn pictures for as long as I can remember and am mostly self-taught, although I’ve studied with some very fine artists. I’m happy to do either people, pets or places by commission and I can do them in oils or charcoal, graphite or some watercolor.

Gary Jackson – Fire When Ready Pottery

 

STUDIO ADDRESS: 4401 North Ravenswood, Studio 205 West, Chicago, Illinois 60640
All of my pottery is handmade and one-of-a-kind. Primarily thrown on the wheel and then decorated with handmade stamps to create textures & patterns. Many of my pieces are soda-fired which creates a unique surface & finish based on the flow of the flames in the kiln during the firing. All of my work is food-safe, dishwasher-safe and microwave-safe. I enjoy watching people touch & feel my pots, and then see them actually using them in their everyday lives.
You can also find me on Pinterest and YouTube – just do a quick search for Fire When Ready Pottery. You can stalk me anywhere!!!

 

Charlotte Kaplan – Enjoy the Knots

 

(847) 612-1804
3 Dimensional wall art is my specialty! I create works of art from all types of fabric that are cut into strips and knotted.  I wanted to do something grand with the gorgeous fabrics that I had been collecting over the years. As I began working with the fabric I came up with this unique technique of knotting fabric! Combining this with my background as an art director/graphic artist, helped create my own unique fiber art technique. Thinking out of the box has given me a sense of accomplishment. These results are hanging on many walls. My customers are always happy with my work. Think different, think texture and dimension, think fiber art. Clients will give me fabric to match their interior! Please take a look, and, enjoy the knots!
