  • Meet the Maker Podcast: Jen Perry of Jelt

    Jen Perry lives by a simple phrase, “If not now, when?” It wasn’t a motivational poster that made it her mantra, it was facing that question with her life on the line. When she was afforded a second chance at life she didn’t think she’d get, Jen put that mantra into practice and started a business that encouraged societal change.

    On this episode of the Meet the Maker podcast, we chat with Jen about the experience that led her to start Jelt, how important it was to work with local organizations and bring manufacturing back to her community, and what continues to excite her about the business.

  • Meet the Maker Podcast: Max Feber of BRUW

    The Grommet office is located just outside of Boston, the unofficial iced coffee capital of the world. There is no temperature too cold for an iced coffee in Boston.

    12 degrees? That just keeps it iced longer.

    For those who love iced coffee but want the next best thing, there’s cold brew coffee. There is no ice to water it down, it's less acidic, it’s more caffeinated. But it wasn’t always easy to make, something Max Feber learned the hard way in his kitchen as a high school sophomore. So he created BRUW to make making cold brew easier and cleaner.

  • Meet the Maker Podcast: Susan Castriota of Cuchina Safe

    The creation of her products stemmed from her breast cancer diagnosis, which could have been a podcast in itself. It caused her to reevaluate the types of consumer products she used in her life. When she learned of the dangers plastics presented when cooking or microwaving, it led to her business. To hear more about that story and how she has handled growing her business, we talk to Susan herself.

The jeweler, artisan and web and graphic designer took that advice to heart when she started selling her own handcrafted items and when she created her signature jewelry piece, the hammered spinning ring. Made in her Maine studio from sterling silver, copper, and brass, the rings are timeless, versatile and a go-to for any fidgeter.

    On this episode, Maggi talks about how she got into making, how she's handled criticism, the joy of running her business, and much more.
