Furniture and Jewelry
On the Hill you’ll find an unusual line of rustic furniture made locally. Some of the wood used to construct our unique chairs, footstools and weaver’s benches comes right off the beaver dams. There is also a collection of miniature chairs and children’s seats that can be woven with an array of natural materials such as hickory bark, splint, Shaker tape, rush and seagrass.
Jean’s latest addition is the jewelry she creates on gourd shards and small pieces of driftwood. Using various fibers and waxed linen, intricate designs are woven. The resulting pieces are beautifully unusual and eclectic.
