Welcome NEW Boston Handmade Members!

We are pleased to announce that two new members have joined Boston Handmade:
Joshua of Joshua Stone and Marla of Sea Glass Things

Joshua is a Boston based designer who's work gives aesthetic structure to the otherwise rugged and utilitarian medium of industrial felt.
Originally from Connecticut, Stone attended Massachusetts College of Art and worked in commercial photography for over ten years. Joshua's work has beauty, humor, and practicality in both his housewares and his wearables.
"Small ideas only grow with support. It used to be in the states we where all about handmade, now not so much. I am doing my part to bring back that balance."

Marla hails from Salem and has been designing sea glass and pottery shard jewelry for over thirteen years.
All of her designs are handmade, original works of art and true heirloom pieces representing a sliver of history that can be passed on to many generations. All pottery and glass pieces collected by Marla have been naturally tumbled by the surf and sand - no artificial means have been used to weather them.
"I have been scouring the beaches for years - picking up baubles and treasures that have washed ashore. I also kayak to islands around the New England coast for our bounty."
