Ame Earrings

This pair of Ame (means rain in Japanese) Earrings from Suga Jewelry is perfect for a gloomy rainy day like today. (It poured yesterday all day, too… and tomorrow is supposed to be all rainy… )

Simple yet very unique design, don’t you think? She has a lot of new products just updated — please go look around!

OLGA Chalkboard Sign

There is a (relatively) new shop in DUMBO — OLGA Guanabara — their gallery-like shop filled with beautiful handmade furniture and jewelry is simply stunning! And their chalkboard sign?! Gorgeous!! Do you see the gold bold frame? Caught my eye immediately and had to take a picture.

If you ever come visit DUMBO, you should stop by OLGA for some eye candy and inspiration!

Blues Earring

Blues Earring from Suga Jewelry. I don’t usually post about jewelry designs (but I do have my pinterest page!), but this was too cute not to. It’s been rainy and cloudy here in NY ((it’s sunny today! yay!)) but if these were on my ears, I think I’d be happy. Rain or shine :)

We just did a big updates on her site, too, you should go check it out here!

The Renegade Craft Fair 2010

I went to the Renegade Craft fair in the late afternoon on Sunday… and it started pouring as soon as I got there. Not just rain, but strong wind and stormy craziness — I guess there was a tornado warning! So I have missed lots of shops who decided to close earlier… :( but in 30 minutes, it was hot and sunny again, though, I was a bit bummed. Bizarre weather!

Well, I still saw lots of great handmade products, I was inspired by some of the booth/display designs, and enjoyed shopping. Took some photos to share — enjoy!

Great posters and kitchen towels by Claudia Pearson:

Awesome Brooklyn poster and t-shirts: (I just can’t locate who this is by — does anyone know?)

Miniature Rhino booth — I’ve been a fan of their work, their booth was so awesome!

Cute leather alphabet rings by Lucky Me Beads:

Loved their display ideas.

Speaking of display ideas, Queens Metal used vintage wooden boxes and oil can tops, I thought it was so cool.

Another cool display idea by the Hand of Fatima Design — using old books as earring stands:

oh hi!

These jewelries by Cursive Design are so great, caught my eye for sure.

and I loved these handmade illustrated prints by Virginia Kraljevic!

Great chalk board and hand written price board:

and last but not least, loved the usage of woods throughout their work and displays via Timber!

I didn’t take photos of ALL the things I saw, but there were many many more… Cheers to all the artists!! I’m glad I made it even in the crazy weather and be able to support handmade!!
