I decided to make a follow up to last years ‘The Descent’ treasury. I discovered many gorgeous new pieces and also stumbled upon Boline Strand’s work, which is the first item featured. She has some amazing pieces on Etsy as well as her site, bolinestrand.com.
Other wonderful pomegranate goodies that I couldn’t fit into the treasury template after the jump… (more…)
Or…how I may have just overcome my fear of them. I was on another Etsy adventure the other night and stumbled upon a piece of artwork featuring barnacles. I’ve always been pretty frightened of the alien looking forms and I’ve had my share of run-ins with the arthropods. I actually envision them gleefully waiting for some soft fleshy skin. If you don’t keep your ladders or boat scraped, the chances of such an encounter with them rises considerably. Even in a swift tide you can get brushed up on a dock piling and get cut.
These pieces have been designed and crafted in a way that has helped me gain a new appreciation of their beauty and form.
Last, but not least, here are four more pieces that are sure to help the barnacle lovers come out in all of us! Wear this soft Barnacle the Whale felt brooch during the day and come home to a delightful print that proclaims that ‘b’ is indeed for barnacle. Or maybe you like things a little edgier with this wide sterling and copper barnacle ring and mixed media painting that reminds me of a cluster of volcanoes!
Bring on more art therapy!
I have been featured in two new Esty Treasuries. I’m not sure how I missed posting the first, which was done by Lindsey of Lost & Fawned. I really love both of these Treasuries, they have some gorgeous items! Please click on the links and have a look at some incredible offerings from independent artists/designers/crafters/boutiques!
Holy cow, my work has been featured in two beautiful Treasuries today! There are some really lovely items in both that I’m adding to my favorites! Michael is going to have a time when I send him that link. 😉
Thank you waterwaif and Team Discovery!
I finished this late last night and published it this morning. If you know me…you know how much I LOVE silhouettes!
I really have a lot to do right now, so instead, I decided to make my first Etsy Treasury.
