Tuesday Tour – Week 4


Handmade Christmas Gifts From

the Pacific Northwest

Every Tuesday, from now until Christmas, I’m sharing some of the great Christmas gift ideas I’ve found on ArtFire. For the next couple of weeks, I’m going to focus on artisan items from the Pacific northwest (USA).  There’s a lot of talent up here in the northwest corner of the country.  And with internet connections, you don’t have to be here to own some of these great items.  So get out your Santa bag and see what you’d like to add to it!

Wouldn’t some Santa’s helper on your list be glad to receive these earrings?  I love the combination of gold and red, and these earrings are especially elegant! They are by gilliauna, an artist from Washington State.

This hand sewn place mat is by Graceful Arts, also from Washington State.   There is a table runner that goes with it, as well.  How cute is this?

The artist behind Hemp Craft lives only about 30 minutes away from me.  This casual bracelet would look great for the holidays.  Grab it now, so you can wear it throughout December.

I love this graceful image of a Baby Japanese Maple Leaf by cuspdesigns.  The red edging on the leaf is exquisite!

I have added a Holiday Collection section to my ArtFire shop.  It is on the right hand side of my first page.  I also added a category for Gifts Under $25.  These earrings are from my Holiday Collection and they are only $16!  The fun glass Christmas “candy” beads look good enough to eat, (but please don’t!).
