Our Maker Market is chock full of artists from our community who make everything from paintings to leather to unique electronics.  Again this year, our makers are not reselling anything – it all comes from them.  This post highlighting our makers is the sixth in a series – be sure to check them out during Penguicon!

Christine’s Unique Creations. LLC

After a devastating diagnosis of MS Christine became inspired to create beautiful things after reading a story about a woman who would create items out of found sea glass.  Knowing she needed to stay busy in order to stay positive she turned to her love of crafting to create a fantasy world made with silver cover wire art and resin jewelry. Her one of a kind pieces include semi-precious stone, beautiful colors and unique shapes.
