Rare talent in Rhode Island

I challenge you to find a more talented group of women. Arts in RI!
Take a gander at this gift basket (scroll down) they ponied up and gave away to a very lucky winner for Valentine's Day. Not only talented in their craft, but extremely generous as well.
Julie Beck! I have been following and admiring her for a while. Her very "uniquely Julie" house portraits are a must have. Watch the progress of her work on Julie's blog.CUSTOM House Painting - Custom 8 by 10 painting of your house or someone elses house as a gift
Paula McDonough! I adore her nostalgic jewelry design. Look for that signature key! Beautiful.Dream Happy Dreams Twilight Inspired Boro Glass Beaded Vintage Skeleton Key Necklace
Carol! She makes gorgeous hand woven scarves and dolls in her seaside studio.Turquoise Eyelash Scarf
Kim! Swoon worthy!!! Her lampwork beads are each a piece of art. I love Kim's work.Clef a Mon Coeur 14 - Boro Lampwork Heart with Vintage Key (sra)
Wendy T! Wendy's beautiful work speaks for itself. Stunning jewelry designs made with all natural materials.Ruby Romance Faceted Ruby Quartz Necklace and earrings
Linda! Funky and very cool purses and jewelry. NO whining cuff links. A purse made from seatbelts. You gotta see it!big dot magnets - no whining - I'm not listening
