Indie Junction Featured Artisans for the Week of July 18th!!


This week the sizzling heat continues with these three talented Indie Junction Artisans: Tanya of  Green Tea Photography and Green Tea Jewelry Designs, Debra (and Don) of Gilstrap Designs, and Shoshi Po!
Let's start with Tanya of Green Tea Photography and Green Tea Jewelry Designs.  Green Tea Photography where you will find beautiful photos of nature and the great outdoors!  In the artisan's own words: "'I've loved photography since I was young. I focus on outdoor photography. I love nature and spending time outside. I try to capture the beauty and texture of nature. I love exploring new areas and revisiting old areas looking for new photo opportunities. I started out with a 35mm point and shoot camera when I was in my early teens. In my 20's I got my first film SLR and used that up until recently when I got a digital SLR (Canon 10D). I was hesitant for a long time to take that next step, but I have more freedom to experiment now. I always felt somewhat constained in how many shots I took. I couldn't afford to take as many as I wanted. Now as long as there's room on my memory card, I'm good to go."
Here's some of the beautiful work you will find at Green Tea Photography!

Green Tea Jewelry Designs features one of a kind jewelry designed and priced for everyday every occasion wear.  In the artist's own words: "enjoy the creative aspect of designing jewelry. I primarily do beaded. I like to take older jewelry and make them into something new. I also try to incorporate wood and other natural items into my jewelry. I use the best quality items and supplies with every piece of jewelry that I make."
