Tonight! Steel Town Handmade Trunk Show -- Handcrafted wares from local artists at Unblurred

Join the Steel Town Etsy crew tonight at Schmutz Lodge (5405 Broad Street; Broad is parallel to Penn) and sample what the the Pittsburgh craft community has to offer! From beautiful to bizarre, cute to kitsch; at times recycled or re-purposed...the artists of Steel Town have something for everyone. As part of the Unblurred Art Gallery Crawl's schedule of events, we're in good company.

Meet two more of our presenting artists: Diane Wright Designs and Silent Lotus Creations.

Diane Wright uses beadweaving and metalsmithing techniques to create high quality handcrafted jewelry inspired by the world around her. You'll find a few of her striking pieces below, but definitely come see them in-person to gain a better appreciation of the color and texture of these lovelies. The woven pieces, in particular, are incredible to touch.

Kylie of Silent Lotus specializes in jewelry and art inspired by the designs of nature and the beauty of simplicity. Beautiful, indeed! Her newest items infuse favorite metals and gemstones with vintage materials and ephemera. Many use 100% reclaimed parts to reduce waste and add history and charm.
