It's no secret that indie published, BUST Magazine has been a part of the punk rock DIY movement for years.  What rocks our socks off are the amazing support that we've received from established companies from the crafting community like JANOME!  We can't thank JANOME and their resident kick ass crafty lady, Miss Kira DeLong for rockin' and sponsoring the DIY corsage station at BUST's first ever springtime Craftacular.  Kira has been a long time reader of BUST and besides being a sewing rock star,...

The Hand of Fatima is one of my favorite jewelry designers. Mariam is not only tooth achingly sweet and talented, but she's also an activist and a mother of 2 baby boys that do not creep us out. I am the lucky owner of 2 of her lockets. They hold pictures of Iggy Pop and Justin Timberlake, (two men that I love the most), and I always get asked about where I got them. Snag your own charms and jewels from the Hand of Fatima...

Birdhouse Jewelry!!! I first stumbled upon the lovely Miss Amy Lapierre of Birdhouse Jewelry at Artisits and Fleas in Brooklyn. I had long admired her beautiful, and so affordable jewelry while on my weekly stops at the flea market. And then, about 2 days before the very first Craftacular I had worked on (Holiday Craftacular 2006), I received the sweetest email from Amy letting me know that should I find myself in need of just one more last minute vendor, that she was my lady....

Adorable, witty, and charming letterpress prints! Each item is individually cranked through a vandercook press by Rebecca of Rar Rar Press. We're absolutely stoked she'll be with us at the Spring Fling Craftacular! Here are a few of my favs... ...

I'm don't know how else to describe jewelry designer Vera Balyura of VeraMeat as anything but charming, talented, and totally adorable. Think of snippets from your childhood imagination and then cast them into silver and gold- that's what her designs look like. Cowboys, and robots, and astronauts! Oh my! Vegetarian dino charm? She's got that one covered as well. Ah-mazing. See for yourself at this Sunday's Spring Fling Craftacular!     ...
