Handmade earrings, rings, and necklace from Little Bug Jewelry
Jane, creator and founder of Little Bug Jewelry, started making jewelry in 2005 and subsequently opened an etsy shop in 2007 naming it after her daughter who’s nickname was ‘little bug’. Jane is one woman show working out of Michigan where she lives with her husband, two daughters, two cats and two dogs. She loves working with natural gemstones the most, but anything sparkly will draw her eye, much like a magpie. Additionally, Jane also loves working with raw, rough stones to create one of a kind pieces. She tries to use recycled and upcycled components and metal wherever she can. Outside of jewelry, Jane enjoys gardening and running. She just ran her first marathon in April and her second in June. Her shop, Little Bug Jewelry, contains handmade jewelry, necklaces, earrings, stacking rings and one of a kind items. I am personally fascinated by her use of silver, rough black diamonds, semi-precious gemstones and especially moonstones – one of my favorite stones of all aside from deep, midnight blue sapphires.

A Crafty Weekend on the Roanoke City Market

It was a crafty weekend on the Roanoke City Market. The Science Museum of Western Virginia was offering free admission so there was face painting just outside their doors. My friend Linda Jo had her face painted in lovely shades of aqua blue.
Here she is all made up sipping out of her jolly handmade mug. It has boobs. How fun is that!?
This is my friend, Dave. Dave worked on sewing a handmade gun holster while his wife, Kyle, sold their cheese platters made from recycled wine bottles. He’s gotten quite good at his leather work lately and has been working on custom gun holsters, leather belts, and even leather purses for his wife.
Rudy Saunders worked on crafting a walking stick on the market while his wife Deborah sold some of their handmade jewelry, purses, and Rudy’s handcrafted birdhouses.
Jerry took a break from selling his hand painted signs and cinnamon scented pine cones to play a game of solitaire. A sign stating “Running on Floyd Time” is a local favorite.
This man, pictured above, is temporarily stuck in Roanoke and is trying to work his way back home to Florida by playing his songs. He was strolling the market on Friday taking the time out to sing for people who were willing to listen. Tips were optional. He swore to me he’d be famous some day and that he was going to copyright his songs. He played an awesome original for me called “Moonshine.” He really is a sensational singer.
