Best Local Maker
A relatively new and hotly sought-after category, best local maker is a voter’s favorite. This year Channing Taylor of Archival takes the win. These original metal designs are created from re-purposed antique and vintage finds. The slogan, “modern jewelry for the old soul,” describes her aesthetic, but her unique handcrafted designs can truly be enjoyed by anyone. Taylor creates one of a kind necklaces, rings, and earrings and some of her work can be recognized by the use of stag beetle designs. You can find her goods online, at local pop-ups and through other local stores.
