Handmade jewelry, pottery, local honey and more were on sale last weekend during the Winter Art Fair in Riverton.
Wendy Heermann showed off her wares — Double Trouble honey and smooth pottery that caught the light just so. Onlookers admired the handywork of custom jeweler Marilyn Hilzer King, whose designs added a colorful touch to the local spread at the Fremont Center on Saturday.
Goodies were also up for grabs during the fair. Sonharvest Seasons owner Brian Peil’s raspberry peach syrup sweetened the morning, and his raspberry and jalepeno preserves struck a spicy chord. “Raspberry and jalepeno sounds like a weird combination,” he said, “but they actually go together quite well.”
