Glass Beach - Maia Low

She especially loves to work with cotton fabrics, happy colors and quirky combinations.

Alizah's Jewelry - Alizah Olivas
Alizah Olivas is a West Seattle native who enjoys all things small and shiny. Making jewelry for 5ish years, she has been focusing the last couple of years on forging fine silver and working with semi-precious stones...sometimes combining the two. New obsession...turning her photos into pendants.

Go2Girl Design - Sandra Watson

Sandra loves to create custom aprons and entertaining accessories for the kitchen. Obsessed with fabric from a young age, she loves to design quality, one of a kind creations. Here's her 'kitchen philosophy' :

Every girl wants to feel flirty, sexy and in control. Whether you're slaving over a hot stove, plating a gourmet meal, or shaking up some signature cocktails.....Put yourself in the 'Power Position' with a custom designed apron that pulls your outfit together, and puts you at the Head of the Table.

West Seattle artist and mom, Lonjina’s creative career includes graphic design, mixed media, textile design, and interior design, that consistently imparts her point of view with brilliant colors and playful shapes. Inspired by her children, her first collage was created for her daughter when that affordable and unique piece couldn't be found. Working with multicolored papers in her collage creates layers of texture to each piece and are representative of her own aesthetic of contrasting colors, organic shapes and abstract designs.

Times Two Jewelry - Else Perez

Elsa is originally from El Paso, TX, and currently working out of Seattle, WA. While in El Paso, she graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design with a minor in Metals.“I let my backgrounds influence each other to create different designs and wearable visual art.
