McKenzie River Pottery at Washington, IL

On April 20 we made an exciting trip to Washington IL to meet with the ceramic artist Sandra McKenzie. She is a wonderful person and a very accomplished artist. In her cute little workshop we found a variety of ceramic creations, including functional vases, casseroles, bowls or keepsakes with adorable decorations showing different kinds of animals, vegetables and flowers. All is very unique and quirky. We enjoyed our time at McKenzie Studio very much and wanted to share these moments with you.

Timeless, artistically well rounded and stylish jewelry by Shari Dixon

Shari Dixon is a firm believer that women want to feel beautiful, feminine and strong all at once, her motifs incorporate natural elements and mixed media such as pressed flowers, leaves, herbs, snakeskin, serape blanket and feathers, immortalizing their fragile lives by sealing them in a poly resin, preserving the form and adding a spectacular glazing effect.

SHA-Lockets

SHA-NecklacesBeautiful Botanicals featuring a variety of pressed flowers, leaves & herbs plus an array of interesting textures such as bark and python have made the Shari Dixon brand a fashion favorite.

These elements then become a handmade design combined with curious and daring color choices in a multitude
of natural stones, fresh water pearls and interesting fibers.
The results are whimsical and extremely unique designs of personal adornment.
