Welcome To

Down By The River Crafts!


Established in 2011 on the St. Lawrence River, our first booth (pictured above) was also literally down by a River!

About the Artist, Michelle Waters

I was born and raised in Clayton, New York with the St. Lawrence River in the front yard. When I married my husband Eddie (an Asheville North Carolina native in the Air Force), we managed to stay in Northern New York where we could remain close to the river doing the things we enjoyed most: fishing, kayaking, and boating. Our life journey brought us to Massena, New York, where we remain close to the river and keep enjoying everything the water and the nearby Adirondacks has to offer. This business combines my love for fishing and the outdoors with my love for style and uniqueness. When I am not traveling with my business in the summertime, I am in my classroom, teaching 8th grade English.

I absolutely love when a customer comes to me with an old lure that was used by his/her loved one that has passed on. I can create a keepsake that can be worn and treasured for years that will bring back fond memories of the one who has passed on.
