CHECK OUT SOME OF OUR FEATURED VENDORS!

Maker Meyao @makermeyao

Chris is an art adventurer who hopes their work makes them and someone else
laugh. Their work centers exploring and sharing their joy, usually sketching or
doodling something silly, or what they like. At the One+Only Market, they’ll have
ceramics, stickers, bookmarks, and maybe a couple of zines.

 

Good Looks Artistry @goodlooksartistry

Priscilla specializes in Metalsmithing/Silversmithing, utilizing metals to encapsulate
raw stones and earth materials, showcasing their unique beauty through the creation
of handmade spiritual artifacts. These exquisite pieces can be worn as necklaces,
rings, or customized to fulfill the desires of individual consumers. Working with metal
allows Priscilla to engage in the alchemical process of transformation—immersing it
in flames, tempering it with water, shaping it with force, and allowing oxidation to
naturally enhance its texture over time.

My journey is not just a melody but a symphony of artistic pursuits, awaiting your eager ears and open hearts.”
