Curtis Fest Artisan Spotlight: Jewels & Fiber

Wearable Art and Jewelry from Upcycled Scraps & Findings

Jewels and Fiber offers wearable art and jewelry made with a selection of mixed media beads, finding, fibers and yarns, paper and polymer clay products.

Yvonne Warren of Jewels and Fiber loves working with various kinds of media, however her favorites are fabrics and beads. She learned to sew at an early age watching her mother and grandmother sew and grab scraps from under the table. She loves to turn fabric scraps into beads and wearable art jewelry using found objects, patina metals, charms, buttons and stuff.

About Curtis Fest

Curtis Fest returns to William Curtis Park on Sunday, Aug. 27. More than 60 artisans are expected to show their work at the 11th annual event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the north end of the park under the beautiful tree canopy. Curtis Fest has become a Sacramento favorite, and many premier artists have joined the lineup this year.

This free, public event includes food from award winning chef Keith Breedlove of the Culinerdy Cruzer food truck along with delicious street tacos from the Turnt Up food truck. John Merriman, Dianna and the Cherry Kings and the Ranell Carpenter Band will perform.

An expanded petting zoo returns this year as well as the climbing station, and the children’s fairy. Curtis Fest will be followed by Music in the Park from 6-8 p.m.
