Indie Junction Featured Artisans for the Week of October 24th!!

Let's finish off October strong with these three wonderful artists: Elizabeth from The Elizabeth Bayu Store, Suzy from Suzy B. Designs and Vintage, and Tatiana of Teddysaur!!

Let's start with The Elizabeth Bayu Store where you will find handcrafted jewelry using 14 karat gold fill and silver metals and highlights gorgeous gemstones.  Elizabeth, born in Ethiopia, discovered her sense of style from her very sophisticated and fashionable mother, Zina. A ballerina and actress in Russia, Zina brought elegance and European worldliness to the African town where they lived, dressing in the finest Italian couture of the time. Zina was naturally the inspiration for her daughter's designs.  Elizabeth's inherited flare for style, fashion and theater lead her to follow in her mother's footsteps to a career as a model and actress. Capturing titles on her way towards the Miss USA pageant, she designed all of her competition evening gowns and wardrobe. Jewelry and handbags, however, remained a personal favorite.  In the artist's own words: "I love working with stones that have a special meaning like good health, good luck and serenity. Many of my designs are one-of-a-kind so you can enjoy being the owner of an exclusive piece."  Elizabeth also has a line of handbags which can be found on her website!!  Follow her on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook!

And now let's take a look at some of the wonderful jewelry you will find in her Etsy shop!!  And don't forget to check her website for her beautiful line of handbags!!
Our next Indie Junction Featured Artisan is Suzy Berry a clothing shop where you will find a hand picked retro selection of quality Vintage and Fully Custom Made To Fit You Pinup and Vintage Inspired Dresses, Skirts, Tops, Shorts and Two Pieces! All Vintage can be re-produced in exactly your size, so don't hesitate to ask! In the artist's own words: "I have been hand sewing myself dresses since I was thirteen. I always got tons of compliments when I was wearing them out and so I bought myself a sewing machine and began to sew for others.  Every one of my pieces is totally unique. I never make exactly the same piece and I never use patterns. Each item is hand cut and constructed for a specific individual. I can make clothing in any size and I welcome your design ideas should you lie to have a custom dress from your own imagination."
