A picture of the man behind our metal creations, my hubby. He loves creating metal work in his shop. Besides the wall brackets and hooks he make triangle dinner bells also available in our shop. Currently he's making wind harps. He has such fun.
Here is a photo of a bowl holder in progress. I love mixing and matching the fabrics to make these bowl holder. Remember these make super great gifts. Special requests for colors are considered.
I had not made Raggedy Ann & Andy for several years but they are back in stock. This pair of well known dolls are 26" in soft sculpture. Single listings of Ann in different colored dresses are coming soon. I can make 36" as well, contact me for details.

About

Being creative as a husband and wife team making metal art, home and kitchen decor, jewelry and quilling.

Dark Ridge Creations is located in a small very rural town in South Eastern New Mexico high on a ridge. We live a simple life, we live off grid, we have large vegetable gardens where we sell our excess vegetables at local farmers markets. We make many of our own things and cook from scratch. Cell phones do not work at our house and groceries to supplement our own gardens are an hour away. Life is good.

I have always been a crafter. It was not until I started making jewelry that my crafting turned into a business. Then one day a friend introduced me to machine embroidery and there was no looking back. Sewing, embroidery, quilting, fabric home decor and kitchen decor was added to the jewelry making. My hubby, Tom, had watched and listened as I opened my store on Etsy. Then one day Tom disappeared to his shop and made a triangle dinner bell for our porch. He had fun making them and started thinking of other things to make. We started selling his items locally then I added them to my store. Tom's artistic side is evolving. He loves working in his shop using his tools to create art. This is our story and it is still evolving.

I have had another shop here on Etsy called QuillsandTwills that I have put on vacation hold. I incorporated all items into this shop.

Please check back often.
