Over Home Creations

There was a craft fair at the Gatlinburg Convention Center Easter weekend and we had no idea! It was smaller than their July & October shows but you know Sheri still had to go! ;)

Another vendor we met while admiring all the work was Jan Barnes of Overhome Creations. What a sweet lady! She is a retired teacher and now makes beautiful jewelry.

A bit about O H Creations...
“Over-Home Creations” was formed by Jim and Jan Barnes after family members combined their talents and various techniques to create unique handcrafted pieces of jewelry. With degrees in education, art, and engineering, they have spent years painting crafting, jewelry making, woodworking and photography.

The name of their business "Over-Home” is what their family called Jim’s Grandparent’s farm that has been a part of their history since the 1700’s. They are a nostalgic group. The natural beauty and heritage of their region has always been uplifting and they often look to it for inspiration."

She had quite a bit of jewelry to pick from, so you know Sheri couldn't get away without a silver and pearl ring ;) And she gets many compliments on it all the time. Way to go, Jan! Hope we see you July in Abingdon! :) You can visit her website HERE.
