In our new series, "Making the Market," we will be introducing you to some of the crafters, farmers, musicians, and artisans who attend our markets. We hope you enjoy learning more about the "makers" in our community!
Meet Kaitlin Ferensen of Elemental Creations by Kat
How long have you been in business? I've been to jewelry making and metalsmithing the past 2 years and started my business and vending in the past year.
How did you get started with this work? I've been drawing and painting from a young age and fell in love with metalsmithing in high school. I love learning new ways of creating and have recently taken up wood burning and leather work.
Tell me about something you've made recently. My favorite things I've made recently are pieces of jewelry using organic casted pieces. I found an amazing jewelry caster that offers sterling silver cast twigs, leaves, mushrooms, pine cones, etc. I love the natural and organic look they add to my pieces as I am very moved and inspired by nature.
What's a fun fact about you? I'm a free spirited Aquarius who loves to dance!
