Alison Slak

I am an interdisciplinary artist who loves incorporating play into my work. Majority of my practice stems around integrating art into communities and is also deeply rooted in spirituality. With everything I create I keep in mind the Zulu word ubuntu which translates to "I am because we are" or the spirit of togetherness. I began the wood burnings during a time when I was in need of meditation and self discovery. The process itself is incredibly meditative and intricate. Each work brought me lasting peace and I hope they bring you the same. The air fresheners/shower steamers include eucalyptus for mental clarity and lavender for relaxation. Each fossil and gem piece are also infused with heart opening or grounding energies for you this holiday season! I am excited to be working with Sacred Art and hope my pieces bring you joy and clarity!

Kostick Glass Jewelry

Etta is compelled by jewelry in its many different forms and applications. She grew up in the woods and by the seashore in Massachusetts, in a family of glassblowers. After moving to Chicago in 2007 she started experimenting with stained glass, attracted to the many colors, textures, and its relationship to light. Over the years Etta's fascination with jewelry has grown and has lead her to pursue and experiment with different methods of manipulating glass and metal. Crushed gemstones with metal inclusions, hand faceted fused glass, and intricate soldering work are some of the techniques Etta uses in her jewelry. She loves the transformative properties that occur when integrating multiple materials together. Etta's love of jewelry was initially inspired by tribal jewelry and adornments she had collected from South Asia. Strong shapes and the feeling of empowerment they give to the wearer are elements that inspire her. Her jewelry incorporates bold designs as well as more delicate and organic elements that emulates things she sees in nature. Etta is constantly exploring and developing new visions for her work in jewelry.

Redbud Jewelry

Redbud Jewelry marries my love of nature and organic design with modern casting and fabricating techniques. All pieces are hand cast or fabricated by me and all are one of a kind or limited run out of my studio in the Avondale neighborhood. I use non-traditional, natural materials combined with modern lost wax casting and fabrication techniques to create jewelry that is at once rustic and modern. From casting honeycomb in bronze for a necklace, to turning wax drippings into rings, I like to take materials not conventionally thought of as "beautiful" and use traditional jewelry techniques to create pieces that remind the wearer of the beauty that is indigenous to our natural world.

Spinal Fusion

My resurgence of crafting came while recovering from a 'spinalfusion' surgery in 2004, when my daughter introduced me into the current DIY scene. I have always appreciated and admired all things handmade. Although I dabble in a bit of all crafting, my main focus is now jewelry and accessories made from new, vintage and found objects.
