Carol L. Riddle, Artist

I received my bachelor’s degree in Advertising Art from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, in 1965. After spending most of my working life in the Printing Industry, I have decided to pursue my lifelong interest in painting. 

My work primarily consists of landscape watercolors, although I occasionally work in pastels as well. With the use of both on-site and studio painting, I try to capture the beauty of our local scene, choosing to depict what one might see while visiting Santa Cruz and the surrounding areas.

Dyann Marie Paynovich, Jeweler

I sell eclectic contemporary jewelry that I design and make myself. The materials I use include stone beads and rough stone, glass beads, sterling silver, copper, and Precious Metal Clay (PMC). This is an incredible material that consists of fine silver, water, and an organic binder. After sculpting a pendant or other jewelry component, I fire it in a kiln at about 1650 degrees. The water and organic binder burn off, and the silver is sintered. The result is a 99.9% silver piece that I can incorporate into my jewelry designs. I also dye, felt, and quilt silk fibers into fabric that I use in my cuff bracelets.

Kat's Creations

We also dye hemp and make dog leashes out of it. We have a range of products from hats and scarves to t-shirts as well as dresses and button down dress shirts.

Fairies Welcome / Grateful Beads

My booth is like stepping into a flower fairyland. Flowing silk and lace covers the inside booth frame and colorful flags decorate the outside. My items are all 100% handmade by me in my home studio. I even make many of my components: I dye the velvet for my velvet rose hair accessories, make the rose petal beads for my necklaces, and collect moss and sticks for my fairy ornaments and flags.

Soft Touch Imaging

My work consists of customized photos, greeting cards, jewelry boxes, and large format pictures from giclee to canvas. 

My photography is like my own form of media, my vision is my paint brush.

Mahanahula Creations

mahanahula.jpg

A variety of beautiful creations designed and made from my heart and soul inspired by beauty, love, and dancing in the sun...from the desert to the sea, to the jungle to the mountains and always back to the sea again, I am constantly inspired by life and nature and love.

I love  creating anything and everything... jewelry design, beadwork, wirework, painting, drawing, sculpture, fashion design, sewing, screenprinting, photography... just to name a few of my passions.

I have been creating since I could move my hands, and my drive to make things seems to only get stronger every day. I recently moved from the Big Island of Hawaii to the Santa Cruz mountains.

In the Redwoods

My shop features fabric and crochet soft goods including coffee cozies, coasters, glasses cases, scarves, baby hats, balloon balls (reusable toy for kids etc.), rainbow heart quilted t-shirts, crochet afghans, and quilted baby blankets. Sewing and crochet have been my passion for as long as I can remember. When I was little, I'd take fabric scraps from my mom's projects to sew clothes and blankets for my dolls. My inspiration is for reusable items that are also pretty and fun to use. One of my biggest sewing accomplishments to date was my own wedding dress, along with the bridesmaid and groomsman outfits. The crochet hook is my tool of choice when it comes to yarn, and you won't often find me without a bit of yarn and a work in progress. I usually make up my own patterns as I go along, and I enjoy teaching others to crochet. The name "In The Redwoods" came from my love of the forest, especially in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where my family and I live.

Om Gaia Tree & MurKobEye

For the last nine years, Om Gaia Tree (based in Felton and Santa Cruz), has been creating comfortable, funk-tional, festival wear and daily wear for both men and women. We carry unique and refined original designs made with fabric that we hand-pick: WOMEN' pants, tops, hoodies, leggings, dresses, skirts, and MEN's shirts, tees, pants, shorts, as well as hats, scarves, and other accessories. Our pieces last, as we have put them to the test by wearing and selling them at festivals for many years with positive feedback from our return customers. Our styles can appeal to a variety of people, from world travelers to teachers, farmers, yogis, dancers, musicians, and those in our very own local Santa Cruz mountains! We love Redwood Mountain Faire - it is a fantastic way for us to meet and connect with our Santa Cruz Community, and to share what we are creating!

M David Mandolins

I am still exploring and learning my way around this instrument called the mandolin, and I haven’t settled on a single design or set of dimensions or the perfect combination of woods and hardware and finishes.  And, given the infinite number of possibilities and variations to explore, I can imagine I will never run out of things I want to test or experiment with or techniques I’d like to try. That said however, I do have some preferences and some natural inclinations: I love natural wood and clear, satin finishes and I like modern interpretations of classic designs.
