Prized Artist to Join the Sawdust

David Kizziar has his first showing at the Laguna Beach Sawdust Festival, booth #252. Native Laguna resident uses only six pencils to depict Laguna shoreline with phenomenal detail. His work is mesmerizing and an absolutely must see exhibit. Having won the Laguna Beach 2019 Juried Banner Competition with his oil painting, Ascend, depiction of a mermaid, a banner at Main Beach proudly hangs high. Drawing, Victoria Beach, was selected by the 2019 Colored Pencil Society of America- International Juried Exhibition. As David explains, each piece of art has over 300 hours of work as he wishes to emit a mood or feeling for the viewer. David’s soul is embedded in each masterpiece of his art collection but aside from that, he has written over 400 songs. His talent is displayed at the Sawdust, Dana Point Art Association, as well as Internationally.

14 Year Sawdust Exhibitor Shines On

David Campbell stated “I knew after my first time at the Sawdust I would always be here.” The craft of curating jewelry has become his main profession and obsession which began with silver hair combs and evolved into a stunning collection of opulent jewelry. Specialties include ocean and mermaid jewelry using gold, silver, bronze and platinums but his favorites are made using larimer or opals. Stop by booth #209 to pick a one of a kind custom ring, bracelet, hair comb or necklace. www. davidcampbelljewelry@gmail.com, instagram: @xxxdaviejonesxxx

Laguna Hearts

 

 

If you left your heart in San Francisco, no worries, stop by booth #315 to find a new one. The handmade glass hearts are made in Laguna Beach daily by Master Glass Artist, Hillel Rzepka, Each heart is made with love and glass, then wrapped with either 14K gold wire or Sterling silver. He ran out of wire once and began forming his hearts into shapes and words. The creation of canvas art work was born using anywhere from 700 to over 1000 glass hearts. These versatile hearts are used for earrings, necklaces, bracelets and anklets. When not at the Sawdust you will find him at his gallery at 1432 South Coast Hwy., Laguna Beach, or visit his website at handmadehearts.com.

Pablo Picastoe


Patches Cunningham is famous for his toe pun themes each year at his Sawdust booth. Showing since 1975, he is also recognized for his sterling silver, 14K gold and gold filled rings. Long time employee K.B. proudly said, "We are known for comfortable fitting rings". As we were talking a lady walked up to show us a ring she purchased from Patches 26 years ago, agreeing with the comfort of the toe ring. They have toe and finger rings exclusively for purchase at the Sawdust. Stop by booth #405 for your custom piece.
