Ergane :: Handmade Holiday Vendor Feature!

The lovely wearable art of Ergane is one of the fantastic jewelery vendors you will find at this year's Handmade Holiday!

Here's a little bit more about Ergane...

Describe your studio....
My studio is a 30x60 space of pure chaos comprised of papery bits, colorful ribbons, pieces of leather, mirrors, chain and tools. It's not tame in the least.

What is your favorite thing about the Holidays?
My favorite things about the holidays are Italian Christmas dinner and fireworks on New Year's Eve.

What's your newest crafty creation?
Is there specific item you'd like to feature for the show? My newest crafty creations for this fall are myriad circlets and chokers in a motley array of colors and texture.

Is there a story behind your shop name?
People always ask-Athena Ergane is the name used to describe Athena as the patroness of various arts and crafts, especially of weaving. She was always accompanied by an owl and her favorite homeslice, Nike.

What's your soundtrack while you're working?
Radiolab, This American Life, Mumford and Sons, Led Zeppelin, John Lee Hooker, James Hunter

What are your influences?
I am ruled by textures, colors and pithy-ness...and as always-anything comprised of minute details.
