Handmade Highlights

I've posted some individual ones here before, but they're so fun!  I really love fishing through all the items at the Handmade Artists Shop to create Highlights, and love perhaps even more going through the Highlights others make to window shop... or actually shop.  The cool thing about Highlights is that in the original on the site, each thumbnail takes you back to the item in the shop itself for a closer look!  Check out some of them with me...

I Heart Snowmen

Festival of Lights

Fire and Ice

Artist Spotlight: Parts Eighty-Seven & Eighty-Eight

I have two artists for you this time 'round, both ones you have not met here before.

First, April of Brooklyn Bead Goddess.  As someone who spent some time living in Brooklyn myself, I have an affinity for this chick, can't help it.  Then again, I also have an affinity for her art.

I'm an art glass collector, so lampwork like this just draws and fascinates me.  It did her too; it started when the glass artists along the Coney Island boardwalk intrigued her.

And now, the variety in her work intrigues me!  She makes each bead, and then from those creates her beautiful jewelry.

You can buy her jewelry in her Handmade Artists Shop or her Etsy Shop.

You can follow her blog.

Like her on Facebook

Or follow her on Twitter.

Don't you want to?


And second only consecutively, here's Sarah of Finding Charm.  Charm is definitely the word for it, too.

A do-it-yourselfer with her own sense of style, Sarah started making jewelry when she couldn't find anything she liked already made to go with her outfits.

She's obviously become an expert since then!

You can find her funky sense of style in her Etsy Shop, Artfire Shop, Zibbet Shop, and Ecrater Shop.
