Beverly’s Beautiful Bags & More
West Friendship, MD
I am a Howard County, Maryland-based Artisian who started creating beautiful clothing
at the age of 10 for myself. Later, I would have other women interested in having me to create
something for them. I would accompany them to purchase their materials for their outfit which
was so fulfilling. My father purchased my very first Kenmore Steel Sewing Machine and my
imagination for style took off. My passion for the love of fashion has always been at the
forefront of my designs.
Years later, my love for fashion has not waivered, but has extended into the realm of
women’s fabric tote bags, cosmetic bags, cross body bags, wristlets, change purses and more.
My designs are like a breath of fresh air. Some of my customers have compared my work to
Vera Bradley’s purse line (What a compliment!) A love of all colors allows me to go beyond the
normal blah solid fabric bags. The use of store bought sewing patterns and being able to tweak
them is amazing.
I have developed quite a following on Instagram, as well as at yearly juried Arts/Craft
Shows that I participate in.
The reason that I make beautiful women’s fabric tote bags and other bag accessories is
because I have a passion for sewing and creating beautiful bags. To see the smiles on the
faces of my customers and when they come back to purchase others is a joy within itself.

Warren Wilson Photos
As an artist, I’ve chosen photography as my vehicle in allowing the viewer a glimpse into how I interpret life, all the while hoping to show a different perspective than one might expect. Photography has been a near-lifelong passion for me. I started out with a cheap box film camera in the mid-1950’s, photographed Vietnam in the mid-1960’s, worked as a photo lab technician 1970-2005, picked up a digital camera and joined a camera club in 2006. Joining the camera club taught me the skills and discipline needed to be a good photographer.
Although I’ve worked with film, I now devote most of my energy creating digital images. These digital images are then fine-tuned using various software packages. Then the work is sent to a professional photo lab for prints.
I’m what is considered a “generalist” photographer. A generalist is one who photographs a variety of subjects. Although I’ve found my passion in photographing nature, abstracts, and travel, I’ve also been known to photograph street scenes, extreme close-ups, and portraits—in other words, just about anything. I’ve found that doing so helps to keep me motivated and provides me with a large subject list.
Blue Mist Pottery
Anna Marie Poole
Poplar Hollow Studio
Kim creates unique and whimsical, one-of-a-kind folk art with gourds…many of which are grown on her and husband Bob’s PA farm. No two gourds are alike. Sometimes a piece is created by painting the gourd with meticulous attention to detail in its original, unaltered shape. Other times the shape is enhanced or transformed with epoxy or paper clay sculpture. A multi-step hand-rubbed aging technique finishes each piece and adds to the old-fashioned charm. Many of her pieces are holiday themed. Inspiration comes from the simplicity of country life on the family farm. The changing seasons, an affinity for treasures from a bygone era and holiday traditions…these things are all celebrated in her work.
We are a husband & wife small business big dream team. We handcraft one of a kind wire woven and wrapped jewelry with sterling silver, copper and brass wire capturing unique semi-precious gemstones, natural fossils, Czech glass buttons and more. We also offer handmade silver plated and copper wire tree sculptures some with gemstone leaves. Each is created in detail and mounted on unique mineral stones and fossils.

Silver Spring, Maryand
I believe something you own should be both practical and beautiful. I also believe that the resources and materials we use should be sustainable whenever possible. These ideas are what fuel my creative business. I design and sew bags, purses and other accessories from cork fabric. Cork is a completely renewable resource that is durable, and beautiful. Cork fabric is water resistant, scratch resistant, lightweight, washable and vegan. All my accessories are beautiful outside and inside. I always add a bit of color or whimsy to my bags by lining them in fun unique fabrics.
My love of all things practical and beautiful has extended to our furry friends as well. I make fun whimsical pet accessories such as leashes, collars, and travel bowls. Cork fabric is great for pets too. My cork collars are so light the dog hardly knows it’s on. Plus cork is anti microbial and a natural bug repellant. You can be confident when you purchase a Bozie accessory you are buying a quality product made with care and thoughtfulness.
