Before you’re tempted to say screw it about holiday shopping, well….go ahead and say Screw It! (Don’t you love it, I’m being all edgy here! haha)
The artist and crafter lineup for the Cleveland Handmade Market has finally been listed, and along with the regular artists who will be hosting open studios in the Screw Factory (The Lake Erie Buiding at Templar Industrial Park) this event is NOT to be missed. May I repeat, NOT to be missed.
Yes, I am exhibiting my work at this event (including my recently unveiled photography, in addition to my modern nature jewelry) yet I’d be completely excited to hit the event to shop regardless. In fact, don’t buy everything before I get a chance to check it out as well.
This is the largest Cleveland Handmade show to date, and should have something for everyone.

Sometimes I stumble across something so cute I just have to write about it. It’s probably no secret if you’ve read this blog for awhile that I love things that are black and white. Year round, middle of summer, I still love black and white. So when I saw this Bird and Branch Messenger Bag by Cut Out and Collect I knew I wanted to share it. It’s no average messenger bag, as the designer customizes them according to the owners preferred way of wearing it. It’s made of a nice heavy canvas and even has six extra pockets! Not to mention it’s simply darling and sleek looking.
Bird and Branch Messenger Bag, $50.00

I wish I had discovered Leigh-Ann Klein before I was married. I micro-managed every last stylish detail, except for my boring plain white satin bag. Of course, who needs a special occasion to buy a piece of art. Her collection includes bags that can work from day into evening, and for numerous other occasions as well. Leigh-Ann makes exquisitely detailed handbags. Her work is hand-embellished with details such as feathers, satin, lace and other trims.
My favorite of her elegant clutches was the Brooke-Gold Minaudiere. The applique’ on the front of the bag is so elegant and detailed. ($105.00)
I also loved the simplicity of form and design in her Silver Dawn bag. It is silver satin with white woven jacquard and a round pearl and crystal focal piece. ($95.00)
You can see more of her lovely bags and clutches at her shop.
