whiskey ... well, then that’s another story. But, if it’s about the plethora of artists, entrepreneurs and talents we have in Carlsbad, you’re getting closer.  A quick search offers some ideas: a photographer, a landscape designer, a jeweler, a dessert connoisseur, an architect, but, in its simplest terms, a person that makes or produces something very special.  In this issue, you'll be immersed in articles that focus on just that: makers—people who produce things in our area. You'll see it in the art, chocolate, food presentation, jewelry making and artisan goods throughout these pages and our community.  This concept of makers is more than just the people who create unique works of art,

It's also about a movement of people and ideas—hobbyists, experts and the in-between— who form a community that works together and encourages each other to create new products, dream up innovative ideas and produce things unique to the Carlsbad landscape.

HOT SPOT

(CON TI N U ED)

IF YOU'RE AFTER A DECADENT AND RICH CHOCOLATE TREAT, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN DOCE CHOCOLATES, LOCATED RIGHT HERE IN CARLSBAD. Doce was founded in 2015 by Linda Friz, a Southern California local. She curated a passion for desserts and entrepreneurship early on, drawing her inspiration from her parents: Linda’s mother was creative in the kitchen, and her dad was a business owner. She soon found her dessert-making niche in the form of chocolate truffles and decided to open shop once they quickly became in-demand.  "Doce" means “sweet” in Portuguese, and Linda coined her shop after her heritage. Doce’s chocolates are visually impressive, like the campfire s’more, which is covered in crumbled graham crackers, drizzled with chocolate and topped with a marshmallow. And the truffles don’t just look delicious—Linda crafts her treats locally, using only the freshest and highest-quality ingredients.  You won’t find any artificial preservatives or additives in these delectable treats. Fruit-infused truffles like the tangy raspberry and tropical key lime are crafted with organic and fresh fruit. Doce’s mission is simple: spread joy through delicious chocolate that’s handcrafted with intention and care. And Linda's diverse recipes will satisfy any chocolate cravings. “Everyone has different favorites,” she says. “It’s all in the eye of the beholder, or in this case, it’s all in the taste bud of the tongue.”  If you want a kick of sultry spice, try the cayenne pepper. Or, if you have a taste for a salty-sweet treat, the salted caramel will be sure to delight. Maybe you want to keep it simple with the classic velvet-chocolate. No matter your cravings, Doce’s handcrafted decadent treats will meet all of your chocolate desires. “I have several favorites,” Linda says. “It’s probably salted caramel and sea salt though. They both have the sweet and salty taste—the best of both worlds.” For

Working in all precious metals and stones, they can design and produce jewelry from photographs, illustrations or descriptions. They buy precious metals, gems, watches and antiques from customers. They also size and repair jewelry. "If you can imagine it, I can make it," says Stephen, who started drawing and painting when he was 3 years old, and joyfully admits he always wanted to be an art teacher. "If I don't make it, I build it," he adds. The hands-on craftsman says he loves the jewelry business, especially being a part of the beginning lives of engaged couples. "I truly enjoy serving and educating people, and giving them something they wouldn't get anywhere else," he says.
