A fun and colorful addition for my tree in December.
I love to transform the ordinary and create something unique and unexpected!
Welcome to Trio Artisan Designs where you'll find distinctive handmade creations for your home and garden, weddings and entertaining. My love of creating combined with my extensive background in product development makes for an interesting and playful mix of materials and concepts in all that I make.
I make many different types of items that turn the everyday into something special- therapeutic bath salts and sugar & salt scrubs, seed tape for the garden, flavored and colored sugar cubes for everyday tea or champagne toasts, interesting sea salt flavors to spice up your cooking, starfish wreaths and pomanders for the beach lover, fun wine glass charms, sparkling holiday ornaments, and whimsical necklaces.
I am a one woman show: everything is made by my hand and controlled by me so I can be confident in creating and delivering a special product. Please contact me with any questions; I'm always happy to hear from my customers!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I make many custom items and am always happy to develop something just for you. Please allow enough time for it to be made, which may require additional time for me to gather special supplies needed for your order.
My flavored sugar is hand made in small batches. Depending on the flavor, there may be bits of the flavoring ingredient in the sugar- some is intentional such as Lavender, and some may be a leftover stray piece of lemon zest or rose petal, and so on.
There may be some natural variation in the sugar cube color- it may be lighter at the bottom than the top of the cube or varied throughout. This is a totally handmade item, and the natural variations reflect the wonderful characteristics of truly handmade!
Please note too that Chocolate and Espresso flavors only come in Brown- select Naturally Colored or Brown from the color list.
There are approximately 70-75 cubes per 6 ounce bag.
What is Seed Tape?
* Seed tape is a 4 foot long pre-seeded, unbleached, natural paper roll. Organic seeds are attached to the paper with edible cornstarch "glue" so every component is natural (even the 4" x 6" burlap bag the 3 pk comes in can be thrown into the garden to compost!)
* Place it in a shallow trench, lightly cover with soil, water, and watch your seeds sprout and thrive into beautiful plants. Seed tape may be cut to any length, making it simple to plant your garden anywhere, perfect even for container gardening. Instructions are included.
* Note that while I have full confidence in the quality of my seeds, please understand that there are many factors affecting gardening success and that results may vary.
Gift wrapping and packaging
The perfect gift deserves equally special wrapping: dress it up in natural craft paper decorated with cinnamon stick, sparkly pear, or sparkly apple and raffia.
* If you choose to include a gift card, please advise in notes to seller what it should say. *
Please be sure to order gift wrap at the same time as your regular order. Gift wrap is only available for items purchased from Trio Artisan Designs.
Please note that the cinnamon stick is decorative and not meant for consumption.
