Chicago moms are one crafty bunch. With skill, creativity and a certain genius that can only come from sleep deprivation, our local talents make goods for kids and babies, selling them on Etsy and in neighborhood shops. Want to meet a few? Click through our album to get to know Chicago moms (and one amazing grandma!) that craft everything from hair accessories to superhero capes to eco-friendly plushes.
Renée Feldman of unBEADlievableONE
Creating custom heirloom jewelry pieces is Renée’s passion. Her love of metal work began in high school and has grown into fun business that allows her to connect with people all over the world. Her Etsy shop features pieces made from sterling silver, copper, brass and Precious Metal Clay. We love her Fingerprint Collection, which allows moms and dads to use a child's fingerprint to create a special silver charm. Residing in the northwest Chicago suburbs, she is the proud mom of two boys, (13 and 5). She has a blast watching them play sports, and enjoys allowing them to get creative with paints and clay. Renée’s jewelry is designed to "send messages of love, encouragement and goodwill to friends and loved ones.”
