 {Amy Estelle ~ Amy Estelle Metalworks}

Amy Estelle is a Web Production Designer by day, and a metalsmith on nights and weekends. Amy uses both traditional and modern metalsmithing techniques to personally fabricate each piece by hand.

 {Cheryl Jaeger}

In her first year as a Crafty Chick, Cheryl Jaeger will feature writing kits and doll quilts for the kiddos. Cheryl loves to sew and create fun and useful gifts for friends and the little ones. You will also find pouches and Patchwork Clutches; one of her favorite things to make because she gets to play with strips and bits of her favorite modern and vintage fabrics.  Visit her etsy store to see more examples of her work.

{Daniel Shanks ~ Shankalonian Labs}

Dan Shanks started his shop in 2010 for fun as an avenue to sell his art prints. Later that year, he was given a few dead computers from a colleague at work to tinker with and tear apart.  Behold, he found art within the circuit boards.  A few months later, Shankalonian Labs was formed!  He is now in the business of "upcycling" old computers and various dead electronics equipment into all sorts of sculptures and creations. Check out Dan's etsy store or his Pinterest board for a closer look at his work.
