    Beach Glass Memories

    Beach Glass Memories is based in Northeast Ohio where pieces of remarkably smooth and colorful sea glass, or "beach glass" as it is sometimes called, are hand picked from the shores of Lake Erie. The age of each piece of glass and its origins are unknown, and the abundance of sea glass is thought by some to be at stake from the proliferation of the plastic bottle. Each design by Beach Glass Memories is made from genuine sea glass and is set in sterling silver.

    Christine Caldwell

    St. Louis, Missouri native Christine M. Caldwell relocated to California in 1995 to study photography at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. In the years since obtaining her degree, Christine’s mastery of color and black & white darkroom techniques have made her a highly sought after darkroom professional, working with a wide range of print publications and advertising agencies. Photographers seeking to advance their skills come to her for private instruction and workshops in darkroom printing. As an artist, Christine has expanded the potential of the photogram—the process of creating an image using light and photo sensitive paper, minus the camera and film—by pioneering the use of the color enlarger and color paper to manipulate the look of the final product. Defined by skeletal proportions and emblazoned with neon color, the resulting series of images are dramatic representations of objects found in nature, which Christine has dubbed “Illuminated Negatives.”

Unlike most conventional glassblowing, Eye and I Glass employs an ancient method known as lampworking, which uses specialized torches, delicately balanced flame settings, and hand molding molten glass. Eric believes in the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle, giving new life to shards of glass called frit by adding them to new pieces when they might otherwise have been discarded. Melted down to its essence, frit glass allows Eric to create endless new designs and patterns for jewelry, bird feeders, and all kinds of functional art.

    FIAT LUXE

    The inspiration behind FIAT LUXE was sparked in 1996 with the gift of a bar of homemade oatmeal soap. As the precious bar of soap disappeared little by little over time the founder of Fiat Luxe decided to try her hand at soap making in her own kitchen, bestowing chunks of unevenly cut soap on her friends and family. Over time her hobby was refined into an art that incorporated the use of a variety of botanically derived essential oils and cosmetic clays, and the discovery of beautiful molds. Today, each bar of handcrafted Fiat Luxe soap blends layers of color, texture, and fiber and is cold processed in small batches, then cured for three to four weeks before being perfected.
