Marbled Art Essentials began as Book Charms — a line of miniature book earrings, necklaces, bookmarks and wine charms. So what could miniature books possibly have to do with marbled art? Simple. As Book Charms was under development, owner Sarah Downs discovered the world of marbled paper. First, she began making Book Charms using gorgeous papers created by some of the country’s finest marbled paper artists. That’s when she found out about Galen Berry and learned that he was coming to the NH Art Institute to teach a two-day workshop.
Sarah signed up, attended the workshop in September 2011, and the rest is history! Since then she’s been creating a line of hand-marbled accessories, including a new line of Silk Charmeuse and Habotai Infinity scarves and scarf wear, several styles of visors, hats and flower hair clips. Because of the unique nature of marbling — nothing can be duplicated! — Marbled Art Essentials are designed exclusively for craft shows. From Cape Cod to Maine and many points in between, this is our sixth season of shows since we made our debut as Book Charms.
