With her side business, Sweet Insanity, Jamie Beinkampen of Salisbury sells handmade jewelry and accessories, as well as wine bottle lights that her parents make.
A 2012 graduate of Pfeiffer University, Beinkampen works in the mental health field with elementary age children who are behaviorally and emotionally disturbed. In addition to alluding to her work in the mental health field, she said the name Sweet Insanity stems from the fact that her art and her business help her maintain her own personal mental health.
“I’ve participated at Kaleidoscope several times,” Beinkampen said. “I love the wide range of art featured and the overall feel of the event.”
While Sweet Insanity is just a hobby for now, she would love for her business to grow large enough so that she could make her jewelry and accessories for a living.
“Right now, time is the biggest hurdle for me,” she said. “Life has been hectic lately!”
In addition to visiting Beinkampen at the Kaleidoscope Cultural Arts Festival, you can see her handcrafted items on Etsy at https://www.etsy.com/shop/SweetInsanityJewelry?ref=si_shop
