shell art

leave a comment »

The story about shell artist Amy Jager Ramsey in the May issue of Martha Stewart Living really pulled me in. She makes this really gorgeous art using small seashells she finds. I believe its something that has been in her family for a few generations. She didn’t have much interest in shell work as a child but took up the craft about 7 or 8 years ago. You can view her work at www.bobamy.com/shellwork.

Not only did I think her art was amazing I also thought wow this is a great gift idea if you have any crafty friends or family members. There is a how to guide on how to start making your own seashell art on marthastewart.com. It would be such a great idea to print the guide out and gift with a few starter tools and a couple packages of seashells.

more etsy finds

leave a comment »

These amazing prints can be found at yellena’s etsy shop. They are about 8.5×11 and start at only $20!

Also featured on Design Sponge. I couldn’t help also posting on this artist.

I really got sucked in to her amazing story. She Lives in Oregon now with her musician husband and two cats. She was born in Sarajevo and lived there until 1995, when the civil war ended. Living in Sarajevo during the war she actually had to sneak past snipers to attend a high school for the arts. After receiving her BA in graphic design she made her way out west.

Lucky us.

I was digging through Etsy looking for someone who does logos and custom stationary. I couldn’t stop looking at all of the beautiful little things in her shop. This woman does it all. Custom stationary, photography, Oil Paintings, Silk screening. Michelle Brusegaard
