Meet the Artisans

Don't you just love getting to meet the people behind beautiful brands? I am thrilled to bring together for you to meet four of the newer-to-us makers that we carry at The Hare & The Hart at our Meet the Artisans event on Sat, November 4!

I truly hope you can come and get to know these amazing creatives who are such a part of the gifts and goods at our shop. Read about each of them below:

Owl's Nest Designs: Metal clay, fiber arts, culinary arts, collage... Tracy Jones of Owl's Nest Designs is a lifelong artist living in Thomasville, GA and Apalachicola, FL. Her work is inspired by the nature that surrounds her at her Thomasville studio and is represented in the fabulous silver and bronze jewelry that she creates. Tracy has created gorgeous necklaces and earrings just for us to carry at the shop and she will bring more on the 4th!

The Tuckered Elephant: Sarah Smallridge started the Tuckered Elephant in Tallahassee, FL when she was using her creativity to add personal touches to her son Tucker's nursery. Over the past ten years, The Tuckered Elephant has grown, encompassing many creative outlets, including the beautiful, one-of-a-kind, vintage European Grain Sack Totes carried in our shop. I know she has a whole stack of antique grain sacks that are being turned into new totes as I type. I cannot wait to see them!

Honey Bee Fabrications: Nestled in the red clay hills of Tallahassee sits a custom soft goods workroom: Honey Bee Fabrications. Taking cues from hard-working honey bees, owner Jenny Bickley leads Honey Bee Fabrications working in their “hive” creating buzz-worthy work with service sweet as honey. If she looks familiar, Jenny has been our fabricator for our original designs for the past 7 years, and we are pleased to add products under her brand to the shop! 


Hill House Flowers: Hill House Flowers is a local micro flower farm, think less than an acre, just a little over a mile from our store. When looking back on her wedding flowers, Deanna Hill realized that so many of the flowers traveled such a long way to be there. Once she and her husband bought a home, it didn't take long for them to clear a space to grow seasonal flowers that could be handed off the same day. With year one having been embraced so well by the community, she is so excited to share what Hill House Flowers will be growing this spring!
