The Summer Craft Fair featured artist was Susan Bartley, left, of Lewes. Bartley works with sterling silver, fine silver, 14k gold, 18k gold, rose gold and hand selected gemstones. “All of my jewelry designs are original and start out as a sketch,” says Bartley. “From there I hand-fabricate each piece in my studio.” Bartley’s jewelry lines consist of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings, which she says are “strongly influenced by the natural beauty of the beaches along the East Coast as well as my own gardens.” Bartley discusses her jewelry with Cindy, center, and Brooke Plummer.
The Lewes Historical Society held its Annual Summer Craft Fair at the Historical Complex July 12. This very popular event drew over 2,000 visitors and locals to buy and browse fine crafts from more than 70 artists from throughout Delmarva and the Eastern Shore. Funds from this event will benefit educational and preservation programs at the Lewes Historical Society.
