A couple of months ago, I received an invitation to participate in a holiday party at Pivot Boutique in Chicago, along with several other local eco-minded artists. I’m honored to be included, and really looking forward to the event next Thursday. If you live in the area, stop by Pivot at 1101 West Fulton Market for holiday fun and locally made eco-friendly fashion!
For my very first post on my brand-new blog (many months in the designing, no months in the writing…), I’m beginning a project that I hope will last for a long time to come. Each Wednesday, I’ll choose one item from my shop on Etsy and from each of four other shops to feature together. Links to these other four shops can be found on the right side of this page, under the listing The Makers of Eclectic Accessories. They’re all original artists, and each one embodies an “urban hip” style (verbiage originated by Dennice Mankarious of Fringe – thanks again, my dear friend!). They’ve all become Etsy buddies of mine, and I’m proud to feature their work here, on what I hope will be a regular basis (my friends and family know my reputation for great enthusiasm, followed by great inconsistency, so we’ll see. Kaitlyn, please stop laughing this instant…). You can reach each of these items on Etsy by clicking on the photographs, and I’ve included a listing of their shops below. After this week, I’ll keep this post to a minimum, merely listing the photographs. Enjoy them, and please feel free to recommend these gifted women to friends and family!
Fringe – wearable fiber art and knitted accessories
Talula – revamped jewelry, trinkets & other treasures
Leaves of Glass – urban vintage jewelry
