Su Young will have handmade pendants, made from finely bent wire and sand placed in a kiln to melt the sand and mix the colors. The Butterfly and Dragonfly pendants must be seen to really appreciate. Kimberly Giddens porcelain creations have won awards at the Georgia National Fair in the Miniature Sculpture category and the jewelry she makes for them is incredible.

David and Joyce Morse produce a wide variety of barn quilts that are painted on wood and intended to be used on your home or barn as a unique and colorful decoration. On the other hand, Candy Reed makes some gorgeous quilts in a variety of designs that you must see to appreciate the time and patience that when into each one.
