I am a ceramicist, living, working, and teaching in Cincinnati. Always drawn to clay, I attended UC’s DAAP Program to study ceramics and earn my BFA in 2011. In 2012 I began teaching pottery and handbuilding classes at Pleasant Ridge Rec Center and Clifton Rec Center. 2016 saw the wonderful addition of Covington’s Baker Hunt Cultural Arts Center to my pottery teaching circuit, and I am so glad to be a part of 3 different art communities. In between classes, I work on my own pieces at my small home studio. Each piece is lovingly handthrown on a pottery wheel, then decorated and finished in timing with clay’s natural drying process. After an 18-24 hour initial firing, each piece is dipped or painted with homemade glazes, and fired one more time to turn them into your favorite morning coffee cup. My pieces are largely inspired by the patterns and repetitions of the micro and macro natural world. I hope you too will feel a bit more grounded and connected to this big world we live in, as you use my wares. See you at the Market!

Products We Sell: I create one-of-a-kind and limited edition jewelry (necklaces, earrings, bangles, brooches). My original designs are inspired by the gemstones and beads I use. As a silversmith, I love hand-working sterling, copper, and brass into my designs.
About Us: Cincinnati,OH-based online jewelry store. New Artisan jewelry and Vintage pieces—Brooches, Bangles, Necklaces, Earrings. The Brooch & Bangle inspires women to tell their unique story with jewelry that complements their personal style. When designing jewelry, founder and owner Margaret Kastner says, “Our customer dresses confidently because she knows what styles and colors work for her. She sees jewelry as an extension of her personality and something to have fun with. She has created her own style.” The Brooch & Bangle offers jewelry for jeans casual, business casual, and special occasions. Often, pieces work well across occasions. Margaret offers an example: “The Fire Polished Czech Glass and Bronze Necklace works beautifully on a turtleneck sweater with slacks for work. Later, put a jean jacket over the sweater for a casual get together with friends.”
Meet the Artisans Margaret A. Kastner I am a vintage jewelry collector, and more recently a metalsmith, designing and fabricating my own jewelry designs. I am also on the road to get my certification as a Colored Stone Graduate from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) As a little girl, I would try on my mother’s costume jewelry — she had shoe boxes-full of it — from the 1950s, -60s and -70s. Rhinestones, pearls, and enamels. She told the best stories of college sorority parties, and the gowns and jewelry she wore. Those stories left a lasting impression. Over time, I began collecting many pieces of my own, through estate sales and auctions. So after a 27 year I.T. career, I decided to follow my passion for jewelry full time.
Christine W. Sanders Since my retirement from teaching high school art, I have found that the challenge of working with a variety of semi-precious stones and metals has fulfilled my innate urge to create beauty. The focus of my one-of-a-kind jewelry is on the materials used – stones, metals, crystals, etc.- rather than on a complicated pattern or design that might distract from the beauty of the components. The resultant sophistication of the jewelry enhances and creates a focal point for the wearer’s attire instead of dominating it. It is my hope that all of these pieces will be worn with the pleasure and pride of knowing that you alone have the one-of-a-kind jewelry that you are wearing.

Robert Mahaffey is a local cabinetmaker, artisan craftsman and proprietor of RLM Woodworks. Robert’s interest in woodworking began years ago, when he was in high school. And though his career path would take him in a different direction, it would be his lifelong passion for woodworking that would eventually lead him back to his first love…working with the splendor of natural woods.
Robert typically works with hardwoods like maple, walnut and cherry because of their beautiful colors and grain patterns. There’s beauty he says, in all of it…in each unique piece of wood which he purchases from local hardwood lumber suppliers. These cutting boards are all handcrafted and each is distinctly one-of- a-kind. Robert loves cooking, grilling, cabinet-making, gardening and hanging out with his two granddaughters. Stop by his booth and meet this modern day Renaissance man.

Custom Handmade Cutting Boards
To create a one of a kind board I must first have a plan of what I want the board to look like. Then you go and select your lumber based on species. I choose to select my lumber from one of two sources. If I’m making a traditional board or lazy susan I will purchase my material from Paxton Lumber. If I’m making a live edge board I will purchase my material from The Ohio Wood Connection. As I am selecting the lumber I look for grain pattern and color. Now it’s time to mill your material and lay it down on a workbench and let the pieces speak to you as to where they will be laid out on the board. Once that is determined it’s time to glue up the pieces. I use Titebond III glue, which is waterproof and food safe. Once the glue has cured (approximately 24 hours) it’s time to sand. Once sanding is complete I apply several coats of mineral oil and beeswax to the traditional and live edge boards. Both the mineral oil and beeswax are food safe as well. Any type of oil, other than mineral oil will cause your board to go rancid. The lazy susan will receive a hard durable varnish finish.
