Paradise City Arts Festival
Yesterday I had a grand time, full of great inspiration, at the Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton, MA. I loved the garden art and the metal work. There was great jewelry and wonderful embellished boxes of all kinds. A few pictures may give you some idea, but truly, you must be there to fully experience it! Amy Crawley of Moonroom Crafts had wonderful vessels that grabbed my attention. Especially the pyramidal ones that opened on 4 sides to reveal treasures, such a a tiny book or a scarab, inside. Linda Kaye-Moses of Plumdinger Studios had "Unruly Jewels" to die for (amazing necklace in an equally amazing, embellished, wood box pictured here) and Lisa Fedon of Pennsylvania had amazing furniture from steel (table and chair pictured here). The stone garden fountains were beautiful, too.
