New Earrings I Like

Wow, being home recovering from surgery has given me all kinds of time on my hands. For the last few weeks I was really only lying on the couch but today I've got some energy. Why not blog again??

I've been able to create some new earring designs and have sent them off to Oak, a new store in Boston that will be carrying some of my pieces. I'm excited to see how this little cross-country experiment goes. I can't monitor the store in person but the owner has done a pretty good job of keeping vendors up to date on her website and blog. If you want to check it out here's the address: http://www.oakboston.com

Etsy Cross Promotion

Etsy Rain (my Seattle street team) has teamed up with Arts in Rhode Island to cross promote each other. Members on both teams pick artists to blog about- a fabulous idea. Today, I'll be posting about electronrings.

Marya, the designer behind electronrings, makes beautiful pieces of wearable art by felting pieces she's crocheted. Her work includes rings, necklaces, belly dance belts, and purses. These pieces are totally original and simply gorgeous!

Quoting from her profile:
"I get my inspiration from some of the smallest particles known to humankind, AND ancient architecture, such as the Nazca Lines in Peru, and the Hill of Tara in Ireland. I'd like to think I am "remembering" my designs, rather than just creating them."

Her work can be seen and purchased on her Etsy site: http://www.electronrings.etsy.com

My latest treasury!
