Hand made jewelry formed from metal, leather, and love.

Heather Eggleston, a homegrown Tennessee girl, is a stay at home gypsy who loves her family. A self-taught jewelry maker, Heather has been designing and making jewelry for 13 years. If you love whimsical & rustic, this is your kind of jewelry. Stir in a dash of gypsy with metal and leather, and voila! Drawn to the wanderlust-boho feel? Self-empowerment, love, and peace with quotes for the wandering soul? BlackByrd Jewelry is calling your name. And don’t be afraid to let her create something one of a kind, just for you!

Heather wishes that each piece finds its destiny with the wanderer who wears it.

 Art cards and canvas art

I got started doing art 23 years ago. I started painting furniture. Keeping my day jobs at The Great Wall and Sertoma Center I started taking stained glass art classes and oil painting classes. Today I sell in 6 shops and am growing. I am a card artist and canvas artist selling in 6 shops. I give back to Feeding the Orphans in Ghana, Africa. I make art by using canvas, washi tape and oil paint.

Illustrations and Comics  

I write and draw comics along with standalone illustrations. I graduated summa cum laude from UT after making my own major— Social Justice and Storytelling: Advocating for Human Rights Through Comics. Most of my work is digital art (drawn on an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil using Procreate or Adobe Draw and manipulated in Photoshop on my laptop), but I am versed in traditional media (India ink, pastels, oil paints, Intaglio) as well. My perspective as a feminist activist definitely informs my art.

Illustrations + Branding + Publication Layout

I am a graphic designer by trade but have been drawing since I was little, an activity that has brought me joy throughout my life. I graduated from NC State's College of Design, finding graphic design through my love of illustration. I have strived to combine my interests of art, design, and biology into work that is uniquely my own.

Paintings and Sculpture

I am a painter working in most all mediums, I do works on paper, canvas and sometimes found object substrates. I create sculpture using recycled materials for armatures and cover with homemade paper mache clay that dries rock hard, finishing with paint and sealers. I also work with kiln fired clay. I teach art classes to those wanting to learn how to draw and paint both one on one and in groups for workshops in painting. I also do commissioned works of art.

Murals, art, live art

I've been painting large-scale murals in the Knoxville area for the last 2 1/2 years since I went out on my own. From bars, restaurants, schools, city buildings and park walls, I have worked with numerous local businesses by visually and physically interpreting their ideas to help their business grow and become eye-catching. I do not plan to stop any time soon and hope to create some sort of art movement in this city which is already happening.

Aespyre Metal Design

Sculpture, ornamental and architectural ironwork

I design and create sculpture, trophies, ornamental and architectural metalwork. Ranging from large, outdoor and site-specific sculpture to custom trophies for large corporations like RedBull and GoPro, to hand forged iron railings and fire screens for homes, our work explores and defies the boundaries of metalwork. Our willingness to challenge limits enables us to make exciting discoveries in our chosen medium.

Downtown Knoxville Art Pieces

My overall goal with my art, is to not only create art that is meaningful and unique, I believe art has the amazing ability to spark conversation that ultimately brings people closer together.

Handbags and paintings

My hand-printed bags are structured layers and patterns that were created to be carried around downtown for weekend strolls, but set a distinctive statement in the office that is fresh and unique. Growing up and living in the Appalachian, Blue Ridge valley and inspired by Japanese culture, my designs are simple, fluid, and mindful.

Art

Howdy! My name is Kristen and I like to make things. I am currently making peaceful acrylic paintings, pointed mixed media pieces, and quirky technicolor watercolor illustrations. These three styles come tumbling out depending on my mood which usually can be summed up by: let’s chill out and debate in acrylics, resist! we gotta do something about politics in mixed media, and let’s have fun and be weird together in watercolors. Ever feel like this? Then you’re in good company - Enjoy!

One-of-a-kind functional art from discarded book covers

I make room divider screens, mirror and picture frames, boxes, etc. decorated with hardback book covers, also original art. I use discarded book covers to create one-of-a-kind functional and decorative pieces. I also offer studio time for use of a 12"x12" steel rule die cutter. Instead of unwanted hardback books ending up in landfills, I thought "why not upcycle them into art?" I make 2-D and functional book cover art using knives, paper cutters, and steel rule dies.

Woven and textile art and oil paintings

While traveling in Morocco I was inspired by its ancient textile traditions. I learned to sew while there and have since taught myself to weave on a variety of looms, some custom made. My works are sold as wall hangings, blankets, rugs, or made-to-order commissions. All are composed of natural fibers. On my site I also sell handmade Moroccan goods including textile, leather, and ceramics sourced from responsible organizations.
