Renee Ludwiczak is the proud daughter of well-regarded sculptor, Theodore Ludwiczak.  

Ted lived in Haverstraw, NY, where he developed his sculpting gift after retiring from his career as an optician.  

When he passed in 2016, it was Renee's desire to create a means of honoring him, his work, and his continuing legacy.  

The popularity of his sculpted stone heads has created an overwhelming demand for his work.  Not wanting to part with the original pieces, Renee is pleased to announce the birthing of  “2nd GENERATION TED’S HEADS”. The identical, limited numbered replicas are molded directly from the originals and cast using GFRC (glass fiber reinforced cement), giving them an authentic feel and quality.

Nora Freeman has always been intrigued by attractive jewelry, but only began to make it for herself a few years ago, after her mother’s death. Her mother also loved beautiful jewelry and had an eye for anything that was distinctive and striking. It felt like a way to connect with her after her death. Nora designs and produces necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Each piece is handmade and one of a kind. Using a variety of beads including semi-precious gemstones, freshwater and faux pearls, crystals, shell, ceramic, glass, metal, wood, seeds, bone, and horn, she strives for harmony of colors, sizes, shapes, textures, and lusters. The findings are hypoallergenic.

Paloma learned to knit a few years ago for myself and after people started asking me if I will sell my items to them, I came up with the idea to create my own business. I have always had a passion for jewelry and beads, so I started knitting necklaces with beads. I love to work with Japanese glass beads, they are very smooth and the quality is excellent. I have expanded into other items like bracelets, these items are a huge hit for existing and new customers. Find her creations on FACEBOOK.
