Featured Artist: Purrfectly Divine

Rose and Siam Crystals and Swirls Necklace

I've been making jewelry for so long, that when I see such beautiful work from someone who hasn't been "in the biz" that long, it's refreshing. I love the jewelry in purrfectlydivine's shop. I also love that she is also a special education teacher. I am an occupational therapist, so I know the love and devotion that goes into working with anyone, not just kiddos, with special needs.

You can also go visit her blog at for other artist features and background of her work.

Featured Artist: Odds N Blobs

Today's featured artist has such a cute shop and wonderful products. I noticed them a while back, and I'm glad to finally getting around to doing a little feature. She claims "I am a 22 year old girl stuck in my own little world. I love sitting in my craft studio making little nic nacs to give to friends and family."

She makes the most adorable little sets of pushpins, magnets, bookmarks, and notecards. They would make fabulous gifts for a friend or co-worker, just a little something fun.

Featured Artist: Unique Charm

Decadant Truffle Charm Bracelet

Unique Charms on Etsy offers a variety of fabulous polymer clay charms and bobbles. As you can see, she specializes in "sweet" little treats for you. I just love this X Box charm. It looks like the one I made my husband buy me. He actually agreed to getting a pink controller for the extra one when he realized that when his "dudes" come over they'll be the ones using it!!

These are all made from polymer clay as I mentioned. I can barely get a round bead to come out looking right, and I admire people that can sculpt and create such tiny little works of art out of clay. They are so fun and unique.

Featured Artist: Artish

"Flames" neckwarmer/scarflette

These fabulous neckwarmers/scarflettes can be found in Etsy Shop Artish. At artish you'll find a work of art you can wear on your body or use in your home.

From Leticia:
"I've been drawing, painting, sewing, and 'creating' in general for as long as I can remember. there is nothing quite like giving a gift or owning something that has been made by hand."

"I particularly love to make scarves. I love the surprise that often comes from combining unusual textures and colours. I love adding details, features and embellishments. I especially love how a great scarf can transform an ordinary outfit into a fabulous one."

"My inspiration comes from the colours and textures around me in the hunter valley (australia), my family, my painting and drawing, and from the cities and countries i have visited."

"useless information about me?
i am a sucker for shoes that i don't need, dangly earrings, music, old-fashioned bicycles, things that go fast, anything red, potatoes, the smell of a new book, alchemy's chai tea, and painting and drawing."

So go stop on by her Etsy shop and see what she has to offer.

Ffeatured Artist: Toni Anne Wolfe

Fellow Etsian Toni Anne Wolfe has a great shop that features prints, tiles, and dinnerware that is sure to please. Go pick yourself up something unique that you'll enjoy for years to come!

She states
"This is an outlet for all my random and melancholy creations
limited edition prints
handpainted tiles
handpainted dinnerware
various crocheted cozies
unusual appliance cozies
and occasionally some original paintings and sculpture

All of my work is one of a kind, similar items are made, but no two are exactly alike since everything is hand painted/made
Currently all of the ceramic tile and dinnerware are store bought "made in china" and aftermarket handpainted by me

visit my website for artwork that i don't plan to sell

or my blog for links to my favorite items, and updates on my studio"
