From Artist Adjowah Ky, "I've always been crafty - I always loved the arts, being creative, blending colors, taking things that separately don't make a lot of sense, and transforming them into something beautiful, and useful. I started the Oakland Craft Company a little over 10 years ago, to share the unique and hard to find jewelry components I knew fellow designers would crave...and then, we emerged into the Age of Corona. Overnight, all of our priorities changed - collectively we had an intense need for safety, security, wellness, protection on a scale none of us had ever experienced before. So, I made a major pivot in my business - I took my expertise in creating beautiful, useful things and turned it to mask making - and I'm so glad I did! I source fun, interesting, high quality fabrics to create the face masks, and I work with local women seamstresses who make them one by one. From this crisis, I think I may have found a new direction I want to move towards in my business, and really, in my life. This has reminded me how important it is to live your truth, and do what you really love - I really love this! I hope you do too. Shop her collection of face masks and vintage map jewelry here.
Sharon in her own words, "The jewelry I make is transformed by you putting your own personality and expression into it. Expression. That’s what I’m here for! In a culture inundated with social media and comparison, my designs give you the freedom to express that’s there’s no one else quite like you in this crazy wonderful world."

In 2012, Chelsea discovered an image transfer process that made use of her love of photography. She discovered that hand-transferring photos onto wood transformed the photos that she already loved into something more complex and textured. Chelsea’s original photos focus on California coastal and nature scenes and SF landmarks. She cuts the wood and makes all the transfers by hand. Recently Chelsea switched her focus to making cloth masks. Having sewn from a young age, her skills have been put to good use. For each mask purchased, one is donated. Shop her entire collection here.
Elements of the natural world provide the inspiration for most of Marian’s paintings. She is guided by intuition, emotional response, and a sense of exploration of the materials. She moves easily from painting on canvas to mixed-media, and other works on paper; including pastel and mono print.
Marian has been active in the Bay Area fine art community for over 30 years. In 2001, she received the Lifetime Achievement in the Arts Award from the City of Pacifica. To see more of Marian's art, visit her website or Saatchi Art to purchase.
Paper & Scissor designs and handcrafts greeting cards for all occasions. They love helping you stay connected to the special people in your life.
Tiffany Su, the desinger & maker, started making cards the moment she could pick up a pencil, scissors, and glue. She made cards throughout her entire childhood until one day... she just sort of stopped. Life got busy. Fast forward to 2017, she started creating cards again with found/repurposed art materials, cool paper scraps, basically anything she could find. In rediscovering her love for making cards, the idea for Paper & Scissor emerged. Eventually, she discovered the magic of digital design and hasn't looked back since. She hopes you enjoy the cards as much as she enjoyed making them! Shop her collections here. And don't miss Tiffany when she goes live on Sunday at 2pm for a VIP Shopping experience on IG live! You'll get discounts exclusive to craft shows! Come get first dibs on NEW releases that celebrate essential workers on the frontlines.
