This weekend is our famous Memorial Day Block Party in Downtown Waynesville! Be here! It’s SO much fun! Music, food, dancing and shopping are all happening at once! Here at Earthworks, we’ll kick off the evening with our famous Kids Paint on Main! Your children can paint an original piece of artwork right in front of Earthworks from 6-7 pm Saturday night. All materials are provided, and when they are finished, they keep their creative masterpieces!

Of course, if you would like us to frame those creations, we’d be happy to help you choose just the right framing and then we’ll build the frames for you! Charges for framing depend on materials selected.

See you Saturday night!


June is fast approaching and our June Art After Dark on Friday night, June 7th will be amazing!  Our featured artist is one of our best selling jewelry designers, FourElements BeadWorks.

Collected and enjoyed, FourElements BeadWorks jewelry celebrates the Earth, Sky, Water and Fire with beads!  Each piece has a name, an element it represents, and often a story.  FourElements BeadWorks designs are inspired from the world around the artist’s studio, and the special places she has traveled to.  Our seasons, our wildlife and it’s habitat are all the sources for her work.

Often considered “healing jewelry”, semi precious stones have been worn all around the world for thousands of years to aid in health, well being, happiness and the inter connectedness of people.  FourElements BeadWorks jewelry does just that!

Specializing in Mama Necklaces, Wedding Party Jewelry, Prayer Beads, Birthstone Jewelry Sets and special requests, FourElements BeadWorks offers a wide array of stones, pearls, corals, shells, glass and metal components.

Join us June 7th for the best selection we’ve had of FourElements BeadWorks!
