Good evening all...as promised Today's post is the HOT LIST with some of my fave artists and pieces on Etsy :) Check out the column on the left for links and photos of these goodies :)
1) THE MIDNIGHT ORANGE: I met Dana, designer and owner at a recent show in Buffalo NY. Dana is super soulful and full of life...not to mention creative! Quirkily cool, I love the ideal! Most of her items are made from recycled match boxes...a unique object of obsession :) My favorite is this gorgeous Miniature Butterfly dresser to house essential tinies like paper clips. The teeniest of knobs on the front complete the look...each drawer...a recycled matchbox! One of the cooler ways to go green in my opinion!
2) Amrita Design: Sarita is such a talented artist with delicate, intricate wire workings and beautiful stone and color picks! I absolutely adore these CHANDRA EARRINGS made from 14K Gold fill and gorgeous Moonstone. Aside from being totally talented, Sarita is such a pleasure to communicate with as well!
3)the SILVER DOG has gorgeous, fun designs using bright colors and the prettiest of flowers in assymetric necklace designs. Pricing is affordable too so you don't have to feel guilty about some much needed V-day shopping :) Pop in and Say hello to Erin..she is friendly and quick to reply to any messages!
4) Michelle Chang jewelry entails cleancut & organic handworked jewelry in an array of silver gold and diamonds! From branches to hearts to dainty sharks teeth and kitties, the blend of cutting edge rock-vibe gets a dose of sweetness! I can't get over the cuteness of these sterling baby skulls with diamond eyes!
5) For cool, nature style apparel for men and women, a visit to STEVESTER is definitely a must! Every item is screen printed on comfy cotton. Totes, and hoodies are available as well as tees. At the moment, I am anxiously awaiting my branching out tunic! I love the simple cool colors and the fact that i can wear it over a tee with leggings while its cold and with jeans in the summer...did i mention there are POCKETS on the front!!! Super fast replies to questions are also a plus at Stevester, a noticeably popular site by the looks of sales :)
