I'm Hedy Riegle and I recently moved from Columbus, Ohio to Germantown, Ohio. I'm learning my way around and we are settling into our little brick cottage just outside of town. My husband and I, along with our daughter and our dog, are enjoying the fresh outdoors and restoring this little homestead. I have a great studio in our home that allows me to create and make jewelry, accessories, gifts and decor items all hours of the day and night. I also teach private lessons in my studio for students 10 years old and older.
I have always loved vintage items; decor, clothing, and tidbit found objects, and the mysterious life they have led. I find it very rewarding to re-purpose things and give them new life and appeal by incorporating them into jewelry, gifts and home accessories. Common elements include religious medallions and roseries, vintage watch parts, vintage costume jewelry, and skeleton keys. Linens, doillies, embroidery, and fabrics. It's all good stuff.
I began crafting when I was young and after having a home goods consignment shop for many years, I began selling my handmade wares at local festivals and fairs in the Columbus, Ohio area. It's been a pure pleasure learning my way, which tells me I'm on the right path.
For the past few years I have participated in many festivals and craft shows such as The Country Living Magazine Fair in Columbus, Ohio, The Olde Worthington Market Day in Worthington, Ohio, The Rural Society, The Eco-chic-craftacular Craft Show in Columbus, Ohio and many more.
I also sell through local shops such as:
SoBo Style (Columbus, Ohio)
Green Velvet (Granville, Ohio)
Rose and Remington (Lebanon, Ohio)
Georgie Emerson Vintage (Canal Winchester) and have presented trunk shows in shops, such as Sobo Style and Antebellum Farmhouse (Granville, Ohio) and private homes.
Beginning January 15th, 2015, I will be in my permanent studio inside the market at the far west end, near the market office.
Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Hedy Riegle Studio blog for behind-the-scene photos of the move in process.
And, of course, you can visit my online shop Hedy Riegle Studio on Etsy.
Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you.
