Local Pocono Mountain Artisan, Eva Williams, Accepted via Jury to Three Sisters' Marketplace
New Online Marketplace Achieves Quality and Fun While Supporting Artisans
By: Wendy Wolf
Local Pocono Mountain, PA Artisan, Eva Williams, was recently approved to sell her work on a new online marketplace – ThreeSistersMarketplace.com. You can find her, Shop at www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com/
Williams start in jewelry came after trying many other art mediums. She knits, crochets, and even quilts. "All my mother taught me, except quilting. Quilting I taught her!" says Williams. She loves color and it shows in her work. Williams keeps pieces of colorful materials rolled up and put into a basket so she can look at them everyday for inspiration. Williams started in jewelry when she picked up a magazine about jewelry and was hooked on the colors of the seed beads. She bead weaves most of my pieces and you can see her favorite stitches in her work - square, brick, herringbone, and peyote stitch.
Williams lives in Pennsylvania, in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. "I have so much inspiration here, whether it is summer, winter, autumn, or spring." says Williams, and it shows in her incredible, nature inspired jewelry.
Three Sisters' Marketplace:
Wolf’s inspiration came from the people closest to her - artisans in her family, her friends and neighbors who created beautiful pottery, hand-knit sweaters, and fine jewelry as well as unique sculptures, paintings and more. Artisans found it was a challenge to justify the expenses of maintaining art galleries and art stores or carting delicate items to and from art exhibits and craft shows. Wolf thought it would be easier to create a platform online to showcase items and create an art community exchange. The whole basis of the site is the balance of the ‘three’ as in the Native American ‘three sisters’ legend of corn, beans, and squash planted as inseparable sisters who grow and thrive together. It is a sophisticated, sustainable system that provides long-term soil fertility and a healthy diet to generations. The three plants flourish because of their symbiotic relationship of working together. “On Three Sisters' Marketplace the artisans, shoppers and our online community all benefit from the relationship – the artisan makes a sale, the buyer gets a quality handmade product, and Three Sisters' Marketplace also benefits by bringing them together and growing for the future” says Wolf. The three plants flourish because they work and grow together – just as artisans, shoppers and our online community do on Three Sisters' Marketplace (www.threesistersmarketplace.com)
