About the Artists

Rose and Shadow is a handmade online gift shop run by a family doing what we love.  Turning our various hobbies in to a business is has been a challenge and a dream at the same time.  Ranging from woodworking, bladesmithing and leather work, to jewelry and garden products, we are a unique gift shop that sells what we love to make, made with love and perhaps a bit of magic.
Artists
Marissa Whalen: Owner, Website Designer, Customer Service, Shipping and Receiving, Jewelry Designer, Herbalist, Leather Artist, Crochet Artist
I have been making jewelry for over twenty years. This craft I was taught by my mother who also made and sold jewelry when I was a child.  I love to crochet, garden and am an aspiring herbalist, creating products from my garden. I have recently taken up leather work and I am excited to offer new items in this area. My other passion includes a life long affinity for the metaphysical and that will reflect in my items. 
I am also the owner, website designer, customer service and shipping and receiving so if you have any questions I am the lady to go to.  You can reach me at rjwhalen@att.net or by our facebook page www.facebook.com/roseandshadow
