Monday Features

My first feature this week is Madelynn of OneGarnetGirl. Madelynn is a metal smither who makes the most gorgeous jewellery. She describes working with metals and gemstones as being pure heaven and states that it brings her a great amount of happiness. As a mother of three young children, a perfect day in Madelynn's world would consist of a few hours in her studio, a long walk with her family and a fresh burrito.

When designing and creating her jewellery Madelynn makes every attempt to use recycled metals. All of the gold she uses is recycled, as well as the majority of her silver. She also ensures that every gemstone she uses is of the highest grade quality.

Madelynn's number one inspiration for a design concept is color. She loves bright, rich hues coupled with rough tooled bands, bringing out the beauty in both.

So take a look at OneGarnetGirl's shop and feast your eyes!

My second feature this week is Sharlene of Sharlzndollz. A fellow member of BrisStyle, Sharlene says that she cannot get enough of dolls. You only have to look at the variety of dolls in her shop, both paper and softies to see the truth in that statement.

Sharlene has loved art and craft since she was knee high to a grasshopper. Since becoming a mum she has also become an avid sewer. Sharlene states that she loves the girly stuff and her work reflects this with frills, flowers, hearts, colour, buttons and lace. Sharlene's goal in creating is to make lovely things to enjoy just because life is too short.

Sharlene has several themed dolls in her shop all worth a second glance, but my favourite are her Babushka dolls!
