JAKE MARSHALL

He also has a quirky sense of humor as evidenced by his watercolors of dogs, feathers, shaving brushes, and dirty baseballs.   Jake will have framed watercolors, notecards, and calendars in the sale.

From Farm... to Jewelry”

Patty Casalou, Overland Park, creates unique jewelry from natural materials primarily sourced from her family’s farm, Meulebeke Market, Lenexa. By incorporating  natural materials such as dried botanicals including gourds, flowers, leaves, corn husk, etc. every piece becomes a one-of-a-kind. 

KAREN SKILLETT

Karen Skillett loves working in clay! Over the last two years, she has changed from polymer clay to high fire porcelain clay. She stacks colored clays, then slices through the cross section to reveal a pattern. The technique, referred to as nerikomi in Japan, requires careful planning and accidental surprise, resulting in one-of-a-kind jewelry. The fired porcelain is very hard and durable. The beads are combined with sterling silver to create the finished jewelry.
