dhaaIvy and Marvin on the couch

I create one of a kind handmade jewelry from semi-precious stones, crystals and metals in one store and I create vegan, detergent free, sodium laurel sulfate free handmade soaps. The philosophy for both of my shops is to create high quality handmade items at the lowest price for my customers and I’m proud to say I belong to the Deadhead Art Alliance as well as the Working Artists Promotion Team.



My creative process always starts with inspiration, usually from the stones themselves, either a beautiful focal bead or pendant or the beads themselves.  I’m a Graduate Gemologist and Jeweler for over thirty five years and my first loves are stones and designing, so it’s usually some really unique stones or focal beads or pendants that set my imagination going.  I make all…

The Deadhead Art Alliance


I am the creator of Tye Dye Bills, my name is Amanda Johnson


I make most of the tie dyes, tapestries and bed sheet sets (nature inspired are my favorite) and do the portrait drawings, as well as hand make the other grateful gear.


My team consists of myself and my husband who occasionally makes tie dyes (he has a very groovy style), rinses my bins and is sole owner and namesake of our shop name (tye dye bill was a name given to him during his on the road days), and my children who are the reason I create and sell on Etsy.

Tie dye is our passion.  Our Creations are brought to life through parenthood, love of all things tie dye and the Grateful Family we have come to know and love after all these years.  We love sharing our art, love and soul with others.

Deadhead Art Alliance Artist of the Month – July 2014 – Julie Tribble Store – Stella Blue Handmade

This is another really great artist from the Deadhead Art Alliance team on Etsy. This blog post is written by Jen Jkld captain of the team. Many blessings to Julie and her beautiful art.

The Deadhead Art Alliance


Hi! My name is Julie Tribble, and my shop is called Stella Blue Handmade.  I am currently living in Catonsville, MD, a historic little town just outside of Baltimore.  I love to create a lot of different things, but right now my shop mostly contains handmade beaded jewelry and crochet accessories.  It started with making jewelry for fun and for myself because I could never find anything that was exactly what I wanted, and eventually I had amassed a big enough collection that I knew I could never wear them all!  When I started selling my creations, it was so exciting to find that other people loved what I was doing too.  I would say my purpose for Stella Blue is to create unique wearable pieces of art that reflect my love of nature, music, color, and the earth.


My creative process usually first involves turning on some music, sitting…
