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.

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.

We are three women who believe that traditional crafts such as weaving, knitting, spinning and dying should be carried on and shared with others. Each of us has been practicing our craft for over 20 years. The yarns we dye range from silk, cotton, cashmere, bamboo to beautiful Bluefaced Leicester wools and we use only natural dyes from plants, trees and flowers. Besides our yarns we will also have woven and knitted shawls, scarves, hats and caps.
Come by and see our beautiful colors and wears while you watch a spinning demonstration.
