Abby Mendonsa’s steampunk-styled jewelry, at The Artist’s Studio and Cottage Gift Shop on The Farm at South Mountain, is appropriately named “Izzy Bee’s Vintage Wonderland of Recreated Jewelry.” Abby’s fascination with Alice in Wonderland is cleverly married with steampunk to create fantasy pieces: the White Rabbit domino necklace, Alice as Queen domino necklace with ruby heart, and Hand Watchcase necklace on black lace. This gift shop is possibly the most creative shopping experience in Phoenix, catering exclusively to original gifts created by local artists. The Artist’s Studio offers art classes, writing workshops, educational lectures, youth home school classes, and field trips. Coffee or cocoa is always on the house, and artists are often on-site to chat about their recent works.
