Primetime Emmys Gift Lounge September 20-21, 2013 Hollywood, California

®


about us... The Artisan Group® is on a mission to introduce Hollywood to the best of the handcrafted movement. We do it by providing owners of artisan businesses the opportunity to introduce their products to celebrities, industry leaders and members of the press through participation in major award show gift lounges such as those leading up to The Academy Awards*, The Golden Globes* and The Primetime Emmys*. Because The Artisan Group takes a collaborative approach to participation in these lounges, a marketing opportunity that would be prohibitively expensive for most small companies becomes surprisingly affordable. The Artisan Group also offers members guidance in sales, marketing, social media and public relations. Members of The Artisan Group showcase an array of handcrafted products, including jewelry; bath and spa products; cosmetics; designer stationery and paper goods; crocheted accessories; hair accessories; purses and totes; hand-poured candles; hand-bound books and journals; illustrations and paintings; hand-dyed scarves; fine art photography; pet accessories and toys; and woodworked items. Need help sourcing a specific type of handcrafted product or gift? Contact us, and we’ll email you links to our member’s shoppes that best match what you’re looking for. We’re happy to help! If you’d like more information about The Artisan Group, or any of the artists included in our exhibit, send an email to info@theartisangroup.org. Sincerely,

When Marni was seven years old she would play in her mom’s jewelry box, layering necklaces until she could not keep her neck up. She would then take them apart and recreate them into something wholly different. Looking back on this fond memory and many others, Marniʼs “a-ha” moment to become a jewelry designer has been an evolving process inspired by her travels, relationships and curiosity. Without these experiences she would not be able to create the pieces with the depth and personal meaning as she does now.

Kathy started making all natural soy candles on Etsy in 2009. Scents in Soy has grown to include tarts, lotions, sugar scrubs, sea salts, perfumes and more. All of her products are handmade in her home. Sadly, last year Kathy was diagnosed with Stage IIIA breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy, eight weeks of chemo and thirty-five weeks of radiation. She was grateful to have her business to take her mind off the illness. Despite the obstacle, she is in remission and continues to make products for the mind, body and soul.
