My friend, Mary Koziol, is a very talented artist, jewelry designer and a wool felter. And her lovely vintage-infused jewelry designs are on Etsy.com (http://www.etsy.com/shop/gingerlovedesigns). If you don't already know about Esty.com...go there now! You will not be disappointed. A few years ago, I actually sold my pieces on this site too. It is a great cooperative of artists and you can find countless, unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. I cannot say enough about this site, it is really special.
I just ordered these gorgeous earrings today from Mary's Gingerlove Designs shop on Etsy. I had been looking for a pair of copper earrings and these are a perfect fit to mix in with my other current favorites. The bead in the middle is no ordinary bead either, it is actually a swatch of vintage fabric that Mary has stiched and molded around a wooden bead for effect. Beautiful! I have never seen anything like this. Can't wait to get them in the mail!
