They believe in the strength of glue sticks and rubber cement. They dig through documents, photos and attic boxes at antique stores and estate sales. They get excited over music sheets, brittle maps and gaudy broaches. They aren't afraid of twisting a little metal, refining silver or hours of eye and finger-straining labor.

They are an up-and-coming breed of crafter who take what they find and make something extraordinary. Their work is pretty, with an edgy, sometimes earthy, twist. It's not out of the ordinary to find Catholic saints or Day of the Dead shrines somewhere in their art bins, if not right on their project. Birds, bees, butterflies and black crows are sometimes their signatures. Vintage lace, gold medallions and ruffles find their way into their work spaces, too.
