Today’s featured CityCraft artist is Amber Fontenot of Maude’s Place.

As a full-time stay at home mom of two little ones, Amber crafts in her spare time. When she’s able to create, Amber fashions sweet & lovely leather cord necklaces, bracelets, wire wrapped rings & festive holiday earrings.

Amber enjoys working with a variety of materials including: resins, semi precious stones, ceramic, glass & metal beads, Czech glass & Swarovski crystals to name a few! She often names her jewelry pieces after favorite songs or after female names that she adores.

Amber has recently begun knitting warm & fuzzy scarves & has managed to open her second Etsy shop, Madlily Scarves. From her Etsy profile Amber explains, “knitting is very relaxing for me & I can do it while the baby sleeps on my lap.”

Absolutely precious.

Amber is a new & invaluable Etsy Pittsburgh member! We are so happy to have her on the team & are truly looking forward to getting to know her better!!

So we welcome you to join us at Navarra on December 18th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm to shop local, shop handmade, and see Maude’s Place along with many more talented artisans.
