Creatures by Katie Swartz
believe its been nearly a year since we turned over a new leaf and made the big move to beautiful East Walnut Hills? So many things have happened in that short time. We have gotten involved with all of our neighborhood activities. A great big thank you goes out to all of our neighbors for making us feel so welcome!  
Also in the last year, we have expanded our jewelry selection and introduced many fantastic new makers. The indigenous family of artists is now proud to include: Elizabeth  Ross, Beth Suellentrop, Mark McDevitt & Rob Lee, Jamie Grauvogel, Laura George Lynch, Katie Swartz, Tim Roosboom, Scott Nelles, and from our own crew, Jeannine Kenyon. Just this month, we've added BJ & Greg Jordan and Dave & Kory Gier. There are so many talented, busy people who help make our craft gallery such a lovely place to shop.

Please help us welcome BJ & Greg Jordan to the indigenous family of artists. This husband & wife team of metalsmiths create a line of sterling silver jewelry with brass, copper, and stone accents with nature-inspired details, modern lines, caged stones and even sweet kids on swings. The layering of metals and retriculated silver makes for great texture with their patinated finish. Come see all of what is new in the summer collection at indigenous along with a whole fresh case of jewelry!

"Being environmentally friendly is an ongoing component of our business. We consider our environmental activities in all decisions in the production of wood bowls and serving pieces. Our bowls are both functional and decorative. The natural properties of wood, as a natural, sustainable, renewable and recyclable resource, make our handcrafted bowls a logical environmental choice". ~The Giers
