Burton Aulisio’s Galacticart
“Space art for the new millennium” is Burton Aulisio’s mantra, and his eclectic designs certainly speak to this idea. Raised during the Space Race, Aulisio has always been fascinated with life in the great unknown. His fascination, coupled with imagination, transformed this self-taught artist into an award winning visionary across many distinct mediums.
Ocean Blue Jewelry
Created by a busy mom who turned her enjoyment of crafting with her kids into a profitable business, Ocean Blue Jewelry is a one-stop-shop for all of your gemstone and crystal needs! Using entirely authentic, natural gemstones, Swarovski crystal elements, and gold or silver plated beads, each handcrafted piece is suited uniquely to its owner. Many people use gemstones for their healing properties, while others enjoy them as jewelry or accessories. Either way, you’ll want to check them out this year!
In addition to his career as an author, artisan, and corporate and conference speaker, Ron Hostetler is the creator of The Rugged Spirit Collection, “a series of home and office displays merging aged woods and vintage tools that capture the story of design and destination.” Each repurposed piece merges historical and inspirational uses, and includes a unique title, description, and place of origin.
Sticking with the theme of making the old new again is Rock Reborn, a company that takes old guitar strings and turns them into one-of-a-kind jewelry. What more unique way is there for you to show your love of music and jewelry than an accessory made out of the very material used to make music?
Art on Chocolate is produced by the Downtown Hershey Association and Hershey-Derry Township Historical Society. We’ll be providing event-day information on featured artists, entertainment, and parking options, as well as road closures and detour routes as we get closer to the event at ArtOnChocolate.com.
