2019 Festival Artists

Adornment by Kate Wilcox-Leigh

Kate Wilcox-Leigh

info@katewilcoxleigh.com

Classic jewelry with an edge. I use an array of metals and materials including sterling and fine silver, gold, iron as well as leather and various fibers. I apply traditional hand fabrication techniques like cutting, forming, joining and stone setting processes along with fiber techniques to my materials of choice. You will see earrings, pendants bracelets and rings that can be enjoyed casually everyday; along with jewelry that is perfect for that special occasion.

Mayan Women’s Cooperative of Guatemala

Carol BrunDelRe and Vilma Garcia Garcia, carol.brundelre@gmail.com

We will sell boldly colored items of woven and bead work made by Mayan Women in Guatemala. These may include, but are not limited to, scarves, purses, quilts, toys, and jewelry. All profits will go directly to the artisans. Many of the Mayan women depend on the craft to support their families. The stores only pay them a pittance for their work, but it is dangerous to sell in the streets. Street crime makes it risky and the police can also confiscate their work.
