Indie Junction Featured Artisans for the Week of October 10th!!

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to all our Canadian Friends...Happy Columbus Day Weekend here in the United States! Let's celebrate this week with three wonderful Indie Junction Artisans!  A round of applause for Carmen from Baublezptoa and BananaMiranda, Chelsea from Illustrations a la Mode, and Penelope of Mythology Patterns and her daughter from Flowered Dreams!

Let's begin with Carmen from Baublezptoa and BananaMiranda. Here you will find pendants made with Precious Metal Clay and some blends of this silver with gemstones.  In the artist's own words: "Artisan Jewelry has always held a fascination for me, and I have been making different versions of it for a long time starting with beads and now at my current favorite medium, Precious Metal Clay.  This shop is dedicated to those jewelry endeavors even though beads and gemstones manage their way into my jewelry, no matter what.  BananaMiranda holds most of those.   I love to be in my studio making things, and I love my wonderful husband who knows how important it is to me.   And I love animals, all kinds, and think as humans, it is our responsibility to love and protect them.   I am very interested and active in providing sanctuary to the lost and unwanted pets out there, and donate a portion of all of my sales to Best Friends Sanctuary. I also share stories and pictures of my beloved pets in my blogs among the pictures of my jewelry!   I am simply making my way, like all of you out there, and I do hope that something in my shops will entice you into a smile."

Our next Indie Junction Featured Artisan is Chelsea from Illustrations a la Mode where you will find prints, ACEOs, bookmarks, and custom  completely hand-drawn fashion illustrations!  In the artist's own words: " I am Chelsea Easley, and I am a 20 year old fashion design major currently residing in lovely Los Angeles, CA.  I have been enamored by the world of fashion from a very young age, and have made to move to LA to attend FIDM and realize my passion for the industry into a career.  I've decided to beginning to branch out, and if Im going to be worked to death sketching for my classes, I figured I should try and share my art with fellow fashionites : )  I truly hope you enjoy my work!"

Our third Indie Junction Featured Artisan is Penelope of Mythology Patterns where you will find easy to understand and sew, digitized patterns in all sizes.  In the artist's own words: "I started designing patterns after struggling with store bought patterns that never seemed to fit right or have clear instructions. I love sewing and making things and I'm really happy to have made an easier, more enjoyable way to sew.  When you purchase one of my patterns, you are automatically entered into that month's drawing to win one of my patterns for free."  Follow her blog for sewing tips and new designs and promotions! Penelope also helps her 11 year old daughter  with her shop, Flowered Dreams, featuring designs adorned with handmade flowers!
