Los Angeles, CA
The Ænon’s approach grew out of a desire to create a line of skin care in keeping with the tenets of minimalism, from the purity and quantity of our ingredients to the simplicity of our packaging and design.
You deserve to know what you're putting on your skin, which is why we only use the best vegetable oils, botanical extracts, vegetable-derived compounds, natural clays, and paraben-free preservatives.
"The more I learned about the ingredients used in most beauty products, the less I wanted to use them. My search for natural alternatives led me to the study of folk medicine and herbalism, approaches that I use today in the construction of Aenon's line of minimal, versatile and honest beauty products."
Adrianna Gluck Jewelry
Walnut Creek, CA
My one of a kind (and small batch) jewelry is handmade with intention, imagination & love in my home (on my little handmade desk).
Since I was a young child, creating with my hands has taken many forms. I was always bringing home something new and my mother was always finding a place to display it. As an adult, I still enjoy working with new media and learning different crafts. Some of my favorites are sewing, watercolor during camping trips, collecting driftwood to create mobiles, and building things for our home. Regardless and most importantly, I have fun.

San Francisco, CA
Founders: Tim & Spencer
Nature has been our greatest medicine and we are grateful to call the Bay Area home. We have this saying that Bathing Culture is “Made Under the Supervision of Mt. Tamalpias.” That everything we make and do is in respect to the beauty and preservation of the earth, as if the mountains are watching. The experiences of dipping into the oceans and forests of Northern California made conservationists out of us. We hope that Bathing Culture brings people closer to nature wherever they are.
Founders: Rheba & Joe
Bay Pottery is a family owned business located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Virginia tucked away among the Blue Ridge Mountains. The business was started by Joseph and Rheba McMichael back in the late 60's during the arts movement of the time. Rheba would throw pottery in the basement of their house on the Chesapeake Bay and her husband Joseph would delicately hand paint each piece. Rheba, Joe, and their son Co worked to provide American Craftsmanship to stores and homes across the United States. Some 50 years later, Bay Pottery has relocated a few times, refined its pieces and glazes, and is now in hundreds of homes and shops all over the country. Bay represents the American Dream and shows that valuing craftsmanship and hard work results in amazing accomplishments.
Bonnie Rose Weaver
San Francisco, CA
Of Celtic, Calabrian and Slavic descent, Bonnie Rose Weaver strives to bring the beauty of the mountains and the wonder of the ocean’s tides to the wellbeing of her fellow urbanites. Born and raised in the city by the bay (occupied Ramaytush Ohlone land), her practice of herbalism focuses on access to and education about plant medicine.
Her/their work as a clinical herbalist and medicinal landscaper is interdisciplinary and is influenced by western and energetic herbalism, tarot, astrology, ancestral remembrance, and living on planet earth. Her/their work is informed by long bike rides, reading books, growing food, city living, flowers blooming, observing the seasons, watching sunsets, being sick, drinking tea, being angry, picking nettles, going to protests, watching the moon, watching the ocean and witnessing the interconnectedness of all things.
She is also an artist, working primarily with the mediums of pen, watercolor, digital design and clay. She is a sister, daughter, granddaughter, bike rider, cancer sun/virgo rising, English and Spanish speaking human.
I make a limited line of products, each one multi-functional and great for most skin types. My process is a blend of science, passion, and common sense using ingredients that are potent, simple, vegan, and organic when possible. I only make products that I absolutely love and can’t live without.
Environmental awareness and social justice are guiding principals in all our business decisions. That’s why everything is made by hand, in-house with local labor, using low-footprint, recyclable packaging. We strive to work with other ethical companies for our supplies often spending more for these choices.
I practice community-based intuitive healing that weaves plant and stone medicine, ancestral and queer magic, and justice work. Drawing on my training as a spiritual counselor and herbalist, as well as my ancestral lineages (sephardi/ashkenazi Jewish), I ground my healing work in a commitment to collective liberation and self-determinism. I believe working with the invisible is an inherently radical practice and that magic has the capacity to help us break the spells cast by systems of oppression. My work and life are inspired by and supported by a web of teachers, healers, artists, dreamers and witches rooted in Disability and Healing Justice, earth-based diasporic Judaism, and queer liberation.
I live on occupied Pocumtuc/Nipmuc territory, also known as Western Massachusetts, where I teach, create ritual, make potions, and maintain a local and distance healing practice.

Eternal Returns Candle Company
It all started in 2014 when I had a grand idea to upcycle the glass my husband and I were picking up from restaurants and business for our Nashville based recycling company. I began de-labeling bottles in my kitchen, cutting the tops off the bottles and sanding the edges in my garage. I would then recycle wax from old candles by digging out the leftover wax, melting the wax combinations down in a double boiler and then pouring the concoction into my upcycled glass bottles!
When I was finding myself with too many glass bottles and not enough wax, I decided to really dive into the world of candle making. I researched all of the different waxes, oil combinations, scent options, and wick varieties. I knew I needed to create a candle that reflected my passion for the environment and all-natural living, which is why I decided on beeswax candles scented with essential oils and wicked with organic braided cotton.
Each candle has been mindfully formulated and hand poured with love to inspire the perfect atmosphere - I hope you love them just as much as we do!

F&M, at its core, is about healing:
Healing is reflected in the way we choose to do business, in right relationship with people and plants. We work with plants that are abundant, ethically harvested and organically cultivated and combine them in formulations that are radically non-toxic. Our priority is to use reusable, recyclable containers, and to minimize superfluous packaging.
Healing is reflected in our wholehearted support of Self Care and Self Love which stands in opposition to the pervasive message that something is inherently wrong with us, and that we need a product to fix it. We see the beauty in all bodies, all backgrounds, all ethnicities, all races and all genders. Our potions are mediums of empowerment through self care.
Healing is in the intimate connection we have with our products; each one is handmade to order by one of our incredible makers. Along with our founding herbalist, our team consists of a budding herbalist, a practicing herbalist, a talented baker and an esthetician. We provide nourishing products because we are nourished by making them.
Field Day Apparel
Nevada City & Oakland, CA

Fine Arzt is two entities: a sustainable sculpture service that turns partially removed trees, aka stumps, or salvaged wood into large scale custom works of art AND a jewelry design company that comprises of sustainable and recycled .925 sterling silver pieces. I combine both woodworking and metalsmithing, both of my favorite trades, and reinvent a waste material into something that is to be cherished and be a focal point. I source my materials sustainably, and my goal for each piece is structural rigidity; each piece is timeless and not following a specific trend: I want it to last for generations. Jewelry allows me to combine all of these mediums I have been exploring all of my life. My art background and skill-set experience is broad, I consider my work in jewelry, in illustration, and in wood carving to go hand in hand.

Every ingredient that we include in our products is there for a specific therapeutic reason.

Heron and Lamb
Heron and Lamb Collective is a jewelry collection born out of Chicago that is inspired by the natural world and the excavation of ancient artifacts. The collections evoke feelings of nostalgia and romanticism, and wabi sabi design, while facets from geology, nature, and archaeological discoveries strongly echo sentiments throughout each series.
Founder Raven Locadia began production behind Heron and Lamb in 2010 and has since amassed a broad range of self-taught techniques and skills, such as glasswork, metalsmithing, resin casting, and stone inlaying, which has brought forth a unique and growing diversity to each collection. "I'm deeply inspired by geology and archaeology," Locadia says. " The construction and functionality behind excavated vessels has always been something I've wanted to incorporate in my work. Each shape had it's own unique purpose that contributed to a way of life."
The preservation of natural materials and the lore behind crystals and ancient vessels are reoccurring themes. "I'm learning more about the properties of crystals and apart from being struck by their individual beauty, the significance and properties behind stones allows me to make something that is extremely personal to the wearer."
Inspired to create jewelry that can transcend generations and serve as a relic for each individual wearer, Locadia is driven to create sturdy statement pieces and miniature renditions of some of the larger classics. The one-of-a-kind USA-sourced stones are carefully selected and each hand-formed vessel is artfully constructed into wearable art, creating a hybrid of luxury craft brewed with a raw yet refined aesthetic.

Jacob's Musical Chimes
Long Beach, CA
Musical instrument maker Jacob Sokoloff has been making his precision tuned wind chimes for about 35 years. Best known for his hugely popular Car Charms (often just called “car chimes”), Jacob’s first chimes were the “Traditional” series. These wood and metal wind chimes make peaceful and relaxing music in the wind, are 100% weather proof and lifetime guaranteed.
In 1998 Jacob’s Musical Chimes introduced its first “miniature” windchimes, made of solid aluminum pipes hung from whimsical shapes such as hummingbirds, cats, dragonflies, fairies, butterflies, angels and many more (the hummingbird wind chimes, dragonfly wind chimes and fairy wind chimes remain the most popular). These affordable windchimes also made beautiful music, and Jacob’s customers accepted them with open arms (and ears!).

Half Moon Bay, CA
Founders: Kris & Kim
We’re Kris and Kim, sisters who grew up in the Southwest playing with beads, rocks and metal. We design jewelry that’s part Bohemian, part modernism, part in-your-face statement. Kind of like Alexander Calder meets Dolly Parton.
As kids our mom, an artist and teacher, took us on road trips throughout the Southwest desert during the summer. She sold her creations at art shows and that sparked our inspiration to create. In the early 2000s, we were living in San Francisco and Kris started making jewelry to give as gifts, which led to selling her creations to local SF stores.
We attended our first tradeshow in Las Vegas. We drove there from San Francisco with the booth strapped to the top of our car. Our setup was so complicated we were the first ones there and last to leave. We worked desk jobs by day and at night we made jewelry and packed boxes, which quickly filled our S.F. Mission loft. Then Daily Candy discovered us and we realized we had something big on our hands. Now we’re a full blown operation of killer women in Half Moon Bay, Calif.
Santa Cruz, CA
Many winters ago, I was pregnant and feeling creative and deadicated to hand-making all of my holiday gifts. So I got a big pot of beeswax, some flowers I had pressed, and started dipping in my kitchen. The response was inspiring. With the support of family and friends, my cottage creations grew into a sustainable adventure.
I am still at home in the Santa Cruz Mountains, hand-dipping each candle in the sacred beeswax and growing, picking and pressing each organic flower. So every candle is made and packaged with care and intention and a bit of my son's energy - when Janga was about two, he came out back and sweetly told me "Mommy, you're making laughing candles," --And so we were named.
