Sale in My Shop and Meet Lunachick Designs
Just wanted to mention that as a member of the Etsy Glass Artist Street Team, we're starting a sale today and everything in my shop is 20% off. Please write "birthday" in the note to sellers and I'll send a revised invoice. There are new items added daily for you.
Today, I have an interview with Abbi Carrico of Lunachick Designs: Gems, Metals & Maille.
I asked Abbi to explain how her shop got its name, and this is what she said, " When I decided to start selling, I was trying to come up with something clever that would at least amuse people. I've been called a lunatic enough in my life, so Lunachick just seemed to be the perfect name. It must've worked according to plan, because people seem to be quite tickled by it."
Lunachick told me that she loves fantasy, Bohemian and Gypsy-esque things, and you sure can see that reflected in her work. She went on to further explain, "Sometimes I watch movies and see certain accessories on goddesses, queens, nymphs and dancers that spark ideas in my head." She then makes jewelry that she imagines them wearing. What a great idea!
I noticed that you can't categorize her work by a specific style. She told me that she prides herself on being super eclectic.
I've added a few photos of pieces from her shop too. But be sure to visit it at http://www.lunachickdesigns.etsy.com
Cerridwen Necklace: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=576788
I love this necklace. It has handformed dainty clovers that feature white pearls, chrysopase nuggets and a center malachite cabochon.
Bia Earrings: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7281479
These are one of a kind and very lightweight, as they were made from stainless steel rings. The two larger hoops are connected by a Byzantine link, an azurite-malachite rondelle suspended in the center of the lower hoop.
