Holiday Heap Vendor - The Broken Plate

Juliet Ames of The Broken Plate is the definition of a renaissance woman. Like it's not cool enough that this Baltimore mom smashes plates and makes them into jewelry for a living. She's also had her work featured on Rachael Ray (the woman, her body, and her show), and in countless publications all over the country, and has the coolest and most fitting tattoo I've ever seen. Her work is constantly fluctuating, she is always taking risks, collaborating with other artists, and going in new directions - all while managing a fan base that ranges from you to your great great great grandmother (and that priceless heirloom plate of hers that you dropped on the floor last week). Did I mention she also makes cufflinks, gentlemen?
