Pamela Troutman's "STAR*ART" Jewelry. 

 I have a contract with the Civilian Welfare Store at NGA Campus East and sell beaded lanyards, globe earrings, and lapel pin eyeglass/ID holders. 


I have been making jewelry since 2000.  I am a DoD employee and started making lanyards because I was bored with the pop chains given out at work for ID  badges. I sell at juried craft shows, but mostly people see what I am wearing and ask me to make something for them.  I enjoy stringing, and try to keep my pieces affordable but interesting. 

Some of my necklaces have been on exhibit at the Bead Museum (Washington, DC) and The Workhouse Arts Center (Lorton, VA).  I have placed in the top third at Woodlawn Needlework Exhibit (Alexandria, VA), and at Beadazzled (Tyson's Corner, VA).  I am an active member of the Northern Virginia Bead Society. 


My web site is . I will be branching out into more complicated necklaces when I retire and have  the time to devote to my art.

My birds are made out of one piece of PVC pipe. I start with a plain piece of pipe, cut out a pattern, heat it up, form the bird and air-brush the outdoor paint to make the finished product. Please visit my website at  to see the more than 15 different birds I make. Contact me directly if you would like to order one

Catechisis of the Good Shepherd Atrium Materials

Handcrafted by Ken Wood


Ken Wood began working for the federal government immediately after high school, and spend 33 years as a cartographer with the National Imaging and Mapping Agency. He has always been interested in woodworking, and has a workshop attached to his Maryland  home filled with modern and antique tools. 


In 1989, Ken's wife  Mary Ann was trained as a catechist in the Catechisis of the Good Shepherd and,  along with several other friends from church, started an Atrium program. Ken  outfitted the program with all the necessary materials, and soon word spread to  other programs around the country of his materials. Today, Ken is retired and enjoys crafting atrium materials in his spare time as a hobby. Visit his website at
