Welcome to HBhandmades! We are two St. Louis artisans who also work as a musician and a nurse. We love gardening, strong coffee, and handmade crafts.
The instruments and woodworking are all done by JJ Hamon, a fuzzy-bearded musician who plays more than ten instruments and apprenticed with a luthier years ago. He currently plays with St. Louis bands Magic City and Demon Lover and frequently lends his talents to Beth Bombara. He also does custom-made pedals, SK-1s, and such if you are interested.
Most of the painting as well as the bottlecap art are done by Karen Becherer, a pediatric nurse who has a soft spot for Etsy's "geekery" category (Harry Potter, Star Trek, Doctor Who...if it's geeky, she probably likes it).
Together, JJ and Karen are the HB in HBhandmades, along with our overly friendly mongrel Honey Boy and a little one…
