We hope you have had a chance to Shop the Hill this holiday season — we’ll continue to highlight local gift ideas (“new pure copper slabs combat lethargy and passivity while stimulating optimism“) and deals through the coming weeks.
It’s also coming up on crunch time so you might want to bring technology to play in finding gifts for loved ones.
There are lots of Capitol Hill-based artists, crafters and creators to choose from online. Below, we’ve highlighted a few.
Please let us know about your online shop in *and* Capitol Hill connection in the comments below.
- Sarah Hood Jewelry — Etsy
I’m a Capitol Hill born and raised jeweler who went through the (now defunct) jewelry program at the School of Art at UW, and I now make and sell my work through my own studio here in Seattle. I specialize in custom wedding and commitment rings and also ready-to-wear pieces of all kinds. You can see my work in person downtown at Facere Jewelry Art Gallery or visit my Etsy shop for an even larger selection. I love custom work so don’t hesitate to get in touch for that special piece!
