The artist, maker, and fairy behind Chelsea Bednar Design.

With a background in scenic design and visual arts, CSB works professionally as the Associate Designer for Verdigreen Hotels, up cycling and renovating inns & hotels. On the side Chelsea spends her time on her hands-on passions, selling handmade books, oil paintings & watercolors, and jewelry.

"Much of my inspiration comes from old fairytales, vintage designs, antique ephemera, and all things magical. Intrigued by the 'lost arts', the process of hand-making, plays an integral part in creating beautiful and meaningful work. With each piece created over hours of labor and love, I hope they find their way to homes that appreciate the value of a handmade item, giving sentimental importance to each work of art."
