Cville Craft Attack October News

We are thrilled to introduce some of the newest members of Cville Craft Attack: indedible jewelry, Silver Muse Studio and Zapata Designs. They will all be joining us at this year's Holiday Craftacular December 11th + 12th at Open Space and you can learn more about them right here:

inedible jewelry has a Polymer Clay Cookbook that came out this month! They will be having a proper book signing at Albemarle Baking Company, Nov. 7, at 3pm. They'll have copies for sale at the signing, at the Charlottesville City Market, and it's also available on Amazon and other online booksellers.

Silver Muse Studio - Nancy Hopkins recently changed her business name from Crescendo to Silver Muse Studio. The new name more accurately reflects her evolving interests in silver and other metals. She still makes wonderful, unique beaded jewelry, and you can still find her at Charlottesville's City Market about once a month, but you'll notice some great additions to her line. You'll recognize her sterling jewelry by its clean lines, often accented by 14k gold and copper. Nancy is enjoying the good vibes in her new studio space which she shares with fellow Cville Craft Attackers Tavia Brown, Martha Keith, and Kim Boggs.

Zapata Designs: Andres has the privilege of being part of a group art show and sale being hosted by Jason McLeod Jewelry . He has an exhibition of jewelry featuring Colombian emerald rings and work in Amazonian amber. His work will be displayed until November 16th at 1713-2E Allied Ln. (McIntire Plaza behind C'ville Coffee).

Andres will be starting the holiday season with the University of Virginia's 2009 Artisans’ Bazaar. This annual event will take place in the Ballroom and Art Gallery on the 3rd floor of Newcomb Hall. Thursday, November 19 - 12pm-7pm, Friday, November 20 - 10:30am-6pm Saturday, November 21

If you'd like to find Andres any other time, he will continue to be at the Charlottesville Farmer's Market every Saturday from 7am until noon. He will also be participating in the City Holiday Market beginning Saturday November the 28th from 8am until 2pm which will also be held in the same spot as the regular City Market this year.

taviametal - Tavia has a really interesting 3-part post up on her blog "Casting...Did you know?" There are lots of great photos as she walks you through the whole process. You can check it out here!

Magnolia Moonlight has been busy working on various commissioned jobs including logo development, wedding and baby shower invitations and birth announcements. She is also working on the poster for this year's Holiday Craftacular. Check back here soon to see the poster and for all the details!

Victoria Horner - Victoria has spent October on the road with shows in Williamsburg, Clifton and Richmond. She's busy preparing for a big trip to Huntsville, AL for a trunk show. She knows those Alabama ladies have active social lives, so she's making lots of special occasion bags.

ByCary - The holiday season is underway at ByCary. After returning from the Squidfire ArtMart in Philadelphia with three more requests to participate in other shows in that area, Cary is keeping quite busy. Her 2010 calendars debuted at that show and seemed to be quite a hit. Order yours now right here.
