Meesha Farzaneh is a a full time jewelry and textile designer. This journey began when she was faced with the misfortune of undergoing 3, very invasive, foot surgeries starting in 2017 and was forced to stay indoors and limited to activities that involved minimal mobility. She began teaching herself how to weave and macrame, which eventually became an outlet for her to help redirect her feelings of depression during that time. Over the course of 2 years, her hobby grew into a handmade business here in Austin!
Now, her specialty has evolved into jewelry design. In 2019, she transitioned into this form of art due to carpal tunnel in her right hand from over use during textile art creation. She has kept some textile design in her business because she loves it so much.
When shes not busy making, I enjoy traveling with my boyfriend Mischa (yes they have the same name!!) and snuggling with her little pups, Milton and Naynay!
Allie is the furniture maker and travel experience curator behind Stampworthy Goods.
She pulls her inspiration for furniture from the textiles and tiles that she has seen all over the world from her years in the travel industry.
When she isn’t transforming furniture, she is scoping out a new city (current favorite textile city is Oaxaca) and organizing future trips for lovers of markets, culture, and food.
Allie loves working alongside other talented makers in the Lemon House - who says solo entrepreneurship can’t have coworkers? And is excited to build it into a community space with events for other makers and aspiring crafters in Austin. We are so excited to meet and host all of you in the Lemon House!
Becca is an admirer of doodling, illustration, and art teaching. Since graduating with a MA in Art Education from The University of Texas, she has been working as an art teacher at The Contemporary Art School in Austin, and establishing an illustration business. She spends most of her time designing adult coloring books, interactive murals, and speaking to organizations about mindfulness, meditation and the benefits of coloring. Clients include Dell Children’s Hospital, HEB, the Austin Downtown Alliance and the Anti-Defamation League.
Becca is most inspired by the invisible connections between all things. Her work aims to be a playful, bright, and hopeful interpretation of the world's whimsical and magical sides. She has fallen in love with her hometown in Austin, where she spends free time exploring nature and hunting for breakfast tacos with her husband and their super-pups Layla and Rose. 📷: @alineforastieri
