Craft Masters: Meet the Artists of Craft Lake City, Part II
August 12, 2011
Earlier this week we told you about one of Salt Lake City’s coolest events happening this weekend at The Gallivan Center: Craft Lake City! We shared info about the event and introduced you to some of the Craft Lake City artists who are fantastic craft-y resources for local brides and grooms. Today, I have a second crop of talented locals to share with you. Familiarize yourself with their names and skills, then go check them out and chat them up at Craft Lake City.
McCall Blake, Katie Dean Bath Products – Mcall Blake mixes up all-natural, handmade lotion and body butter in tempting fragrances like brown sugar fig, lavender mint, and vanilla grapefruit. Buy a bottle for yourself and your besties–tie a ribbon to the pretty packaging and you have an instant bridal party present.
Megan House, My Sister Rachel Jewelry – Megan House crafts original, nature-themed pieces of jewelry featuring semiprecious and precious gemstones. We like these silver and blue earrings as an accent to summer bridal and bridesmaid fashions.
Megan Whittaker, Noisette – Megan Whittaker whips up delectable batches of French macaroons and homemade marshamallows. Order a batch of each for your dessert buffett, or package individual bites for delish wedding favors.
Meghan Maughan, Spotted Hippo Soap – Meghan Maughan makes organic, natural soaps and lip balms from scratch using sustainable ingredients. Grooms and groomsmen will go gaga for Spotted Hippo’s ‘Pub Suds’ soap made with beer and cocoa.
Melany Larsen, Jellabee – Melany Larsen crafts felt hair clips, headbands, and clip-on bow ties for tots and moms. Her adorable headbeads would look darling on young flowers girls.
Sarah Jenson and Jessica Taylor, Academy J – Sarah and Jessica craft jeweled headbands that would look lovely on a bride or bridesmaids. We love this cute “xoxo” headband–wear it to an engagement party, the rehearsal dinner, or the wedding!
Sarah Pace, Noble Town Vintage – Sarah Pace handcrafts modern-looking jewelry almost entirely of vintage materials. If you’re a vintage-loving bride, be sure to check out her cool turquoise and brass necklaces.
Stacey Foster, Verla Ivans – Stacey Foster crafts home decor arrows, hand-carved stamps, block-printed bags and accessories, and more. I am completely obsessed with her home decor arrows (I want a set in every color combination to display in every room of my home)–wouldn’t they make an utterly cool centerpiece or decor element at an outdoor wedding in the woods? Love!
Don’t forget, Craft Lake City will take over The Gallivan Center tomorrow, Saturday, August 12 from 2 pm. to 9 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Go get your craft on!
