You might be surprised to learn how many local and Arizona-based artists sell their wares at the Chandler Museum. Here is more information about some of these artists:
Laurie Blackwell is a teacher in Downtown Phoenix who focuses on journaling, bookbinding, tarot reading, and self-development through community connection. She is a self-taught artist with many desert-inspired items for sale. Check her out on Instagram beforehand at loneblackbird.
JW Keller is a porcelain/clay artist who uses a combination of hand-building and wheel work, as well as watercolor paint, to make unique trinkets like magnets for your fridge. Multiple colorful cacti and succulent pieces are for sale now.
Tumblestone Jewelry is a husband-and-wife team of artists. Almost by accident, and with the help of their grandson, a road trip through the Texas panhandle dodging tumbleweeds turned into a never-before-seen medium. That’s right, their colorful jewelry is made using tumbleweeds.
Saw & Steel, LLC was born from another local married duo with a passion for one-of-a-kind furniture and decor. Beginning as personal gifts between husband and wife, their custom designs grew support on social media and blossomed into a full-time business for this creative duo. Explore their portfolio on Instagram at sawandsteel to see why HGTV, NBC and Fox Networks all wanted a part of their magic.
TechWears, by Drew Johnson of Colorado, brings together the worlds of technology and design with recycled circuit boards turned keychains, ornaments, and more.

Created from a desire for fresh and healthy alternatives to traditional bottled hot sauces, Precious Sauces puts people first, using only the finest ingredients in their products to ensure a perfect balance between “intense flavor and spicy heat.”
