Local West Chester Artisan, Pat Henriques,  Joins Three Sisters' Marketplace
New Online Marketplace for Artisans, Crafters & Hobbyists to Sell Their Work

West Chester, PA Artisan, Pat Henriques, was recently approved to sell her work on a new online marketplace – ThreeSistersMarketplace.com.  You can find her Shop at www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com/bcmbijous
Henriques worked for years as a Senior Manager in the corporate world, yet she had no outlet for her creative side.  When her office moved location, Henriques took the opportunity to take severance and use that money to learn a new field - metalsmithing! She has taken many varied classes ranging from enameling to wire wrapping and stone setting. Curiosity also took her to metal clay, and she received 2 certifications in PMC.  Her jewelry can be regularly seen at local craft shows in and around the southern Pennsylvania area.  

Henriques is seeking to increase her network by selling her jewelry online through the Three Sisters' Marketplace web-community.  She had to pass a Jury to be approved to sell on the site; this maintains a high level of quality and service to the customers.  She also teaches PMC classes in art centers and privately.  Henriques is a member of the PA Society of Goldsmiths, the PMC Guild, and the PA Guild of Craftsmen.

About Three Sisters' Marketplace: Three Sisters’ Marketplace was founded in Philadelphia, PA by businesswoman and artist Wendy Wolf.  After years as a successful executive in sales and marketing in the pharmaceutical industry, Wolf decided to combine her business experience and her passion for art to build a web-based business http://www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com.

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) .

Three Sisters Marketplace is a family business that supports artisans across the United States. Wolf is a wife, mom, artist, sales person, marketer and leader who is now using the skills she’s honed to launch a dream. The purpose is to bring the “Main Street shopping experience online.”  Three Sisters’ Marketplace is a people connector that satisfies the needs of everyone in the mix and that also allows everyone to have fun in the process.  

It’s free to join and list at Three Sisters’ Marketplace online at www.ThreeSistersMarketplace.com !
