Strut Your Stuff Showcase- Linda and Keirsten

MaryAnn Carroll

Welcome to Monday. I almost forgot it was Monday and my turn to show off some fabulous designs for the Strut Your Stuff challenge! Fortunately, I remembered because I found a couple of entries that I thought were wonderful!

Lilac Flower earrings 2 

Linda Landig created these beautiful earrings! You can find more of Linda's work by visiting her shop.

Here is how Linda describes these gorgeous earrings:

Ceramic beads by Marti Conrad in a delicious lilac color with a pop of pale yellow. I also love Marti's unusual 3 sided beads that I wired above the flowers. This color combination reminds me of the tall purple irises that bloom in our garden in the spring. I've always been enchanted with the contrasting yellow "throats" in the blooms.


Keirsten Giles made this fabulously, cool necklace! Check out her shop for some more beauties!

Here is what Keirsten had to say:

The focal on this piece was created from a foreign coin, and a hand-textured disc of raw copper. The larger disc was textured with a coin and hammer, and both the disc and the smaller coin were then colored with Swellegant patinas in aqua green mixed with a little indigo and white. The recycled sari silk is dotted with my hand-formed copper tube beads (made from strips of raw copper sheet) and emerald green aventurine. The accent beads include lampwork from Pinocean, The Spacer Shop, and Kelley Wenzel (all on Etsy).

Thank-you to everyone who submitted to our Strut Your Stuff challenge. Each Monday, a designer or two will be highlighted and a winner will be chosen at random on the first Monday of every month. If you haven't done so already, how about sharing your handmade with handmade creations?

As always,

Thank-you for supporting those who create handmade with handmade.
