Break it Up Designs Featured Shop

Our Featured Shop of the Month is Break it Up Designs. Here at the Handmade Gift Guide Marketplace we feature one of our fabulous handmade shops each month. Anita Berner Collins of Break it Up Designs is our featured vendor this month!

You will find beautiful, hand made Mosaic Decor for your Home. Unique designs that will jazz up your home. These Handmade pieces make great house-warming gifts too! Working with Mosaics and Glass is my passion!

As my shop name implies, I started all this with a broken item, namely a favorite flower pot given to me by my son. Two frisky cats broke the pot and I tried to come up with a way to salvage the broken china.

I designed a plaque from the pieces and the ideas kept coming. Birdbaths, tabletops, flower pots and stands, house numbers and then frames, coasters, lazy susans, switch plates and more.

Anita Berner Collins – Owner/Designer

Love working with mosaics and glass. I discovered mosaic art after a beloved flower pot was broken. Wanted to use the broken pottery in some way; so, I created a beautiful mosaic plaque. Breakitupdesigns is the result of that experience!

For the past several years, I have been working with a variety of materials to create original, usable art. Pottery, tumbled glass, shell, stone and stained glass are some of my favorites.

Break it Up Designs

Looking for a unique, handmade gift? I invite you to look at my shop for something different and handmade with care.

I try to convey accurate information about the materials I use and the products I make. However, I welcome any questions you may have. I would rather clarify a detail before a sale so you can make an informed decision before you purchase.

When I ship an item, it is in perfect condition and very well packed. If a buyer wishes to return an item, they must pay the return shipping. I ship with USPS. In most cases, I will use Priority Mail.

Barbara is On Fire for Handmade!

Barbara Sadler Swinton 

The jewelry I create is inspired by nature and art. My many years walking the shores of Jones Beach on Long Island, my college years hiking and skiing the mountains of Vermont and the more recent vacation times in the Adirondacks all provide inspiration when I am in my studio.

My enjoyment of art, particularly the Impressionists, with their use of color and light also provides additional background for creativity when I sit down to create a new piece. Whenever we travel, searching for new beads is always on the “to do” list. I’ve collected beads from Toronto to Vienna and they have all found a home in my creations.

Touch of Silver

You’ve landed in the right spot if you’re shopping for handmade artisan dangle earrings, chain necklaces or southwest jewelry. Using high quality materials including argentium sterling silver, pewter, and gold-filled components, assures you that your new jewelry will have a long life.]

All of my earrings are made with hand formed ear wires and many choices include hammered sterling. One of a kind sterling chain necklaces abound, using glass, ceramic and gemstone beads with an adjustable fit.

I enjoy combining turquoise, silver, copper and the earthy gemstones in my southwest jewelry. A Touch of Silver will help brighten your day… Quality Handmade jewelry you will love to wear!

Aunt Maymes Attic Featured Shop

Aunt Maymes Attic

Aunt Maymes Attic is the Featured Shop of the Month here at the On Fire for Handmade Gift Guide. You will find unique, one of a kind, creations that blend the Vintage Past with Modern Aspiration in this shop!

Aunt Mayme’s Attic where vintage linens find new life in modern and functional items. My Shop name came as a result of my desire to keep vintage embroidered linens out of the landfills.  Many items like this I found during the summers I spent as a child visiting maternal relatives, so many years ago. Aunt Mayme, (“May-me”) my oldest aunt, lived in an old farmhouse with a walk in attic.

This home contained several assorted pieces of furniture, glassware, and most especially trunks that held clothing and other personal items, such as photographs.I’ve always been a lover and sewer of vintage linens, ever since my Aunt Mayme let me play in her farmhouse trunk. When I saw them stashed away, I was saddened because they weren’t getting used. My shop is about bringing those linens out of our “trunks” and using them in modern and functional ways.

 

Beth Pierce – Owner/Designer

Hand embroidered vintage linens have been a love of mine ever since I was a child and rummaged through an old trunk found in my Aunt Mayme’s (“May-Mee”s) attic. While perusing the pillowcases, tea towels, and dresser scarves that my aunt, and possibly my deceased grandmother worked, I came to the conclusion that they would never be locked away if I had them.

Although my ability to hand embroider is long since gone, it’s my love of  vintage linens I want to share with you in Aunt Mayme’s Attic. Vintage linens are upcycled into modern and functional items. I bring the past to the present and allow the beauty of the handwork to shine through.
