Sticks & Stones artist Judith Z. Miller Showing at Brooklyn Holiday Fair – December 18 & 19 – Brooklyn NY

The (Makers) Market

I’ve sequestered myself for the past several weeks, cutting branches, carving, sanding and creating some really cool necklaces made from trees and stones – they’re primal, very powerful. I’ve been walking around Brooklyn searching for broken tree branches, and it’ a true joy for me to cut one down and transform it into a piece of wearable art.

Carved Tree Branch & Amethyst Necklace

Yes, my eyes have been searching the trees, walking around all bundled up with my saw in hand, and I’m into the wee hours of the morning preparing for next weekends’ upcoming Holiday Handmade Crafts Fair. It’s going to be a really great show at The (Makers) Market in Brooklyn at the Old American Can Factory, located right near Staples at 232 Third Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues, Brooklyn, NY 11215.

This curated market will feature all handmade items, food, drink, music – and on Sunday it will include the local Farmers Market. I’m honored and excited to have my work included!

To bring bling and brightness to your holidays, I’m showing new pieces featuring rhinestones, sequins, feathers and sterling silver. They make fun and reasonably priced gifts.

I love working with these powerful and beautiful minerals and chrystals, and I can’t wait to see them adorning some fabulous women!

But keep in mind that many of the wearable pieces I create look great on men too – they are very masculine and sexy!
