Lex Metals (Boulder, Colorado)
Specializing in handmade pieces designed for simple elegance with a rustic edge. Jewelry should be fun and personal, I love to create pieces that speak to the wearer. I do custom designs (using conflict-free stones) as well and love working with individuals to come up with a special piece just for them. Whether you are looking for yourself, a gift, bridesmaid gifts, or even engagement and wedding rings, I would love to create something special for you!
Wooly Wax Candles (Denver, Colorado)
The Wooly Wax Candle line evolved from a 20+ year chef career and an insatiable curiosity to understand the correlation between taste and scent profile. Both evoke a strong connection to memory and both start with endless combinations of base, middle and top notes.
Our goal at Wooly Wax Candles is to collaborate and to create a customized scent just for you.
The Perfect Petal (Denver, Colorado)
"To say that the Perfect Petal team is exceptional is not nearly enough. My first event with Perfect Petal was my own personal wedding in Beaver Creek years ago. The moment I was handed my bouquet, I knew they were “THE” florist in all of Colorado and I am thrilled to have collaborated with them on many stunning celebrations. Cindy is a creative genius. Kit, Tara, and the rest of the design team are dedicated, enthusiastic, talented, PASSIONATE people that genuinely care about the quality and execution of each and every event. Whether it is a dinner party for two or a wedding weekend for hundreds, they always deliver and never cease to impress." — Jolene Greenbaum Peterson
Thread Handmade (Denver, Colorado)
Providing unique handmade apparel, housewares, jewelry, and more, THREAD supports local artists in their quest to outshine the “super marts” of the shopping world. Large scale manufacturing of goods is void of craftsmanship and typically terrible for the environment. Supporting the handmade industry allows shoppers to create their own culture, while directly helping folks in the community. We look forward to bringing community together, while providing an alternative to ‘the norm’.
Free Leaf (Greeley, Colorado)
Free Leaf's mission is to support and inspire the simple things in life. By doing so, Free Leaf supports local artisans and those around the world that make beautiful, yet simple crafts. Our team understands the importance of finding that perfect gift for someone special, or yourself that is high quality, one of a kind, and made by hand.
"At Free Leaf we are committed to supporting local artisans and beyond, and providing eco-friendly, organic products."
The Cactus Collective (Longmont, Colorado)
Morgan Alynn Rice is a Colorado-born tattoo artist, mage and farmer. Morgan has unique style and is one of the hardest working creative people I have ever met. I featured her tender kinship and deference to the natural world. I hope these images invoke her pagan sympathies and artistic approach to living. If you can get on her appointment list you are a lucky person.
Willow (Littleton, Colorado)
Willow – An Artisan’s Market was founded in 2004 by Helen Rice and Donna Jaegers, bringing fun, funky and original art to historic downtown Littleton. Setting up shop in a quaint side-street boutique space, Willow represented the work of approximately 30 artists. Within a few years, the shop grew in popularity with customers and artists alike, and has since relocated to the corner of Prince and Main Streets in the heart of historic downtown Littleton. Representing over 200 artists (mostly from Colorado), Willow offers jewelry, pottery and glassware, garden art, greeting cards, fashionable clothing and accessories, as well as paintings and prints, and more.
