Those who stroll the front lawn area of Waterfall Arts, 256 High St., Friday morning, July 3, will be welcomed by more than 20 local artisans and their finely handcrafted wares during the weekly Belfast Arts Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

B.A.M. will have a variety of fine arts and crafts including hand-beaded hummingbirds and dragonflies by Lanie Gamage; Lucky Fish from Dyan Berk; handspun woolens from Meredith Toumayan (who will be spinning on-site); acrylic, oil and graffiti paintings; pottery, soap, up-cycled bags, a range of jewelry and more.

One of the jewelers, Sonja Twombley of Lally Broch Farm, creates unique eggshell jewelry from the eggs on her farm. She reassembles the eggs of her chickens and ducks to create one-of-a-kind pieces of beautiful jewelry. Some are crafted into geometric patterns, hand painted and then sealed, while others are carefully handpainted floral, woodland or other nature scenes.

Twombley also carries scent shots and massage melts (some made with essential oils purchased from Diane Braybrook, also of the market) along with environmentally friendly kitchen aids such as "snapper towels" and bees wax wraps: snapper towels are reusable, durable, washable snapped together towels that fit on towel dispensers; and. the wax wraps are the healthy, long-lasting alternative to foil.

The Belfast Farmer’s Market is just around the building during the same hours, and Waterfall Arts’ gallery is open, as well.
