Artist Jennifer Wilfong of Yummy & Company makes one of a kind and limited edition jewelry.  Her line of meticulously hand crafted jewelry, in her words, “are inspired by microscopic tidbits of existence, intricately executed details, textiles and other things I see during my travels and daily life.”

Yummy & Company rings

Based out of her Hampden studio, Wilfong creates work that is constantly evolving and changing.  Currently she’s combining vintage and antique finds with her clay work, as well as continuing to expand her intricately created clay pieces.   Again, in her own words, Wilfong has “always gotten a kick out of making things, and being a jewelry designer allows me to come up with new designs and ideas on a constant basis! I truly love being able to create little pieces of art that anyone can afford and enjoy.  As a craftsman today, it’s tough to compete in a market full of cheap stuff made overseas, but I don’t let this bother me too much. I know that a lot of folks still care about where and who their goods come from. I’m proud to be a maker of things, and proud to call Baltimore home!”

Bmore Papercuts are one of a kind hand cut paper creations by Baltimore artist Annie Howe.

384157_10151341578756519_1878843123_n

Annie’s interest in paper cutting grew out of her job as an artist creating shadow puppets with a wonderful organization called Nana Projects. There she  discovered an acute love of exacto knives and cutting tiny details. She then ventured into cutting paper and began giving her experiments away as gifts. Encouraged by friends, she put some work up in one of at her favorite local restaurants, Clementine, and to her surprise, sold all the pieces.  From there she began selling papercuts at craft shows and some local shops. Soon she was creating custom pieces for lots of awesome people in Baltimore and beyond!  She also does amazing custom work like the invitation she did for Holiday Heap last year!!!
