The Painted Bird is a gallery of contemporary American crafts in Suttons Bay, Michigan in the beautiful Leelanau County. 

And it is a seriously fun place to shop! 

We sell original crafts by fine American craftsmen  - a great selection of handmade jewelry, accessories for the home, the body and soul... creative gifts for all. From practical to whimsical... we aim to offer work to please a variety of  tastes and price ranges. 

The collection is fun to explore.  Browse by the type of crafts, or by the artists you like.  Looking for beach stone jewelry, or a scarf or a certain artist?  Just type it in the search box...

Here  the artists keep things interesting.  We show the work of lots of fresh and innovative people (as many as 150 at a time)  who create new and wonderful delights: original American designs.

Have fun exploring the gallery site and come back to see what's new in the collection!   We continue to show work by new artists and of course new work by our good old favorites.  It is difficult to keep up with all the new work, so contact us for images of what we have on hand.  We can email you pictures fast!
