Is your product handmade by you?
100% hand made by Lucas Remley!
Our products are 100% made in America. Every piece is cut & welded solely by Lucas' hands. We do not use any computers or CNC machine. We also "blue" the items to give them a beautiful 2nd color aside from the standard grey steel. Lucas pays attention to every detail, of every piece, and makes them to last.
Most of the product that we sell at the shows is made from new sheet steel, however Lucas has made several sculptures using old farm equipment, screw drivers, & garden tools just to name a few. We also use old brake rotors and disc blades as our bases for the sculptures.

Jensy LaneJensy Lane- Booth #537

Artisan Product Description

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a passion for fashion and all things creative. I was blessed to become an aunt in 2015, for the first time, to a sweet baby girl named Jensyn Laine. I immediately found two new obsessions – Jensyn (obviously) and baby’s fashion. Inspired by my perfect little muse, Jensyn, I have created what I am proud to call Jensy Lane. A boho chic children's clothing line featuring classic and wearable styles with unique fabric combinations. I take pride in hand making each and every piece and hope my creations are uniquely special to the parents and child.

PerennityPerennity by Andrea Fox- Booth #640

Artisan Product Description
Perennity is a collection of sustainable home décor and fashion accessories. Each piece is crafted from washable paper fabric by hand with an obsessive attention to detail. All made with love, right here in Des Moines, Iowa. 

Is your product handmade by you?
Andrea personally designs and handmakes all Perennity products in Des Moines, Iowa. 
All Perennity products are made from a washable paper fabric. The material is a sustainable, plant-based fiber made similarly to paper with a small amount of latex added. This results in a material that washes and sees like fabric, but has the durability and texture of leather. The most popular colors in our collection have been dyed by hand using only natural, plant ingredients. This means no chemicals for you and no pollution for our planet. And we think that’s pretty great.

Heirlooms Made ModernHeirlooms Made Modern- Booth #543

Artisan Product Description
I have a passion for vintage jewelry. These gorgeous little art pieces have stood the test of time and will continue to last. But your Grandma, Aunt, Mom, etc. - are rolling in their graves wanting you to get those things out of your drawers and use them! I create home displays or modernize the piece into something you would wear today. The difference in my work is that I always retain the original piece and it’s functionality. The result is multi-functional piece. For example, a beautiful wall hanging for your home; with a removable brooch that can still be worn on special occasions. Or a bracelet with a brooch that can be removed and worn separately, too! I do custom orders, too, so bring your pieces and we can talk about what you would like to do with them!

Is your product handmade by you?
Yes and no. The vintage jewelry is acquired, thoroughly cleaned and tightened or glued as needed. The vast majority of these items are so solidly made that a cleaning is all they need. The handmade items are items that I make. My talented sister, Denise, does all of the artwork. 
In all of my work, I maintain the original functionality of the jewelry. I want you to be able to remove the item and wear it on special occasions, or have it to pass on to your family members, in whatever way they choose to best enjoy it. This isn’t my day job; luckily, I love my day job. But this is my joy-filled hobby and my stress reliever. It means so much to me when people fall in love with a piece and especially when they are able to bring their family heirlooms back to life. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work together with you.
Some of my items are what I call R2 (repurposed squared). The vintage jewelry is being repurposed, but I’ve also used a re-purposed item to create the new piece. For example, vintage leather belt, vintage crocheted pot holder, or even re-purposed home décor.

My PassioMy Passio- Booth #634

Artisan Product Description

Dreaming in a vivid and fluid like rainbow of color has always been what my daydreams entail. When I discovered enamel (fusing of glass to metal under high heat) and the ability to place what was dancing around in my imagination into jewelry, my passion for color exploded onto the canvas of metal/jewelry. The fire breathing over the glass, onto the metal and watching them become one, had me hooked with the purchase of my first torch. Eventually graduating to a kiln. After thousands of pieces and hours spent in my studio, I am still mesmerized each time I open the kiln door and see the different color combinations that are brought to life. Each piece is fired at a minimum of 1450 degrees and placed in the kiln 5 to 7 times to achieve the layers of color combinations I am trying to master. Fire can sometimes be unpredictable and in those moments of uncertainty, "Happy Accidents" sometimes occur, these piece seem to become my favorites.
My Passio (Latin); the feeling of intense enthusiasm towards or compelling desire for something

Is your product handmade by you?

Yes.  I work out of my home studio located in my Pleasant Hill. 95% of all of the pieces you see have been hand cut from sheet copper. Once cleaned, shaped & formed multiple layers of enamel are sifted on separately then fired in my kiln that I have respectfully named Firery Fern. All of my ear wires are sterling silver. Chains & cuffs are a combination of sterling, copper & brass.
My art/jewelry is one-of-a-kind piece that can be fascinating and sometimes mesmerizing to gaze at. I've found that I cannot recreate a twin item no matter how hard I try. Color combinations & similarities yes, but never 2 of a kind.

The storyboards are made in New Virginia Iowa by hubby Mike.  The metal is currently a mixture of ones made by our son Travis and a friend.  We started switching over to designing and cutting our own metal this year.   The old vintage flash cards we love incorporating in with the storyboard designs are dated from 1928-1970’s.  We choose not to re-create these flash cards as we love the fact that they are original pieces that were actually used in schools from days gone by.  All items are made in America!

Artisan Jewelry by Erica GoodingArtisan Jewelry by Erica Gooding- Booth #638

Artisan Product Description

My love of gemstones has been a part of who I am for as long as I can remember. I have always been intrigued by their holistic properties and folklore of their magic. I began creating jewelry using strung gemstones over 20 years ago, then began to learn metal work. Eventually pairing the two, I have been creating metal and gemstone jewelry for over decade. 

Is your product handmade by you?

Absolutely! In my Iowa City studio I use many methods to create jewelry including acid etching, stone setting and soldering. I utilize a blow torch and hammers to fold form. Working with copper and sterling I create jewelry within a broad price range, so my work is accessible to many buyers. My creative style is clean and elegant. I want people to wear my work for any occasion and feel beautiful in it. 
Every piece I create is made by hand making each piece individual and unique.
