Artist Spotlight: Part Fifty-One

The talent I have for you today is that of Shanna Marie, of Alchemy Atelier.  My favorite thing about her?  She's a fellow theater geek!

Unlike my history, though, where theater seemed like a natural progression from lawyering, her love for theater came from costuming, which came from an interest in tailoring, patterning, and fashion history, which came from plain old sewing... which she started at age six when making Barbie clothes!

Her first sewing machine was a toy she got for Christmas that year, but it only lasted a week, she was using it so much.

A fan of diverse styles, her bent is toward Victorian-inspired items with a modern flair.

Right now, though, her focus is on jewelry and other accessories, which explains her blog name, Diary of a Manic Beader.  Manic, maybe.  Talented, definitely!  Look...
