Great artists on the CrAzy TRaiN

Busy as a bee lately... but it's time to check out some of my fellow ArtFire friends. What do I like today?

LaDeDaCreations owner Laura is a groovy hippie chick/day spa owner and amazing polymer clay artist. Having just started making my own polymer clay jewelry, I've got to say WOW! This Handmade Groovy Polymer Clay Pendant is $8.50, 2 inches long and super fun.

Carmon of WooleycreekTribal & Ethnic Jewelry creates traditional Native American bead-work jewelry. Her turquoise pieces are also exquisite. This Spirit of the Mountain Earrings are made with delica beads - very tiny- and took 36 hours to make. Priced at $30, here is the perfect argument for supporting our own American artisans; Fair Trade doesn't just mean overseas artisans. Beautiful work, totally fair prices... we create because we must, out of love and desire.

Bijoux Designs For You is not just jewelry. Mother and daughter team April and Glenda also make beaded bookmarks, wine charms, and kitchen linens. This Brown and Gold Spiral Bracelet is a bargain at $18. Notice the elegant gold tone clasp and beautiful colors.

Here in Beaverton, Oregon, the farmer's market opened today. Wouldn't you just be the cutest with this Retro Paisley Print Reusable Market Bag by Catfluff Price: $24.99.
