Sandra Noble – Sandra Noble Designs
Sandy Squillo – 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!
Ellen Grenier Bevill – Threadings Handwoven Designs
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.

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.
