Amazing! Artists With A Special Touch
The featured artist this week in the Handmade Artists Forum Blog Ring is T.Rusk4U, a lady who does it all.  She is not only a fabulous jewelry artisan, she also owns a shop in North Carolina which sells nothing but handmade items, maintains two blogs, a twitter feed, a Facebook page and is a tireless promoter of other handmade artisans.  Whew!  I'm tired just thinking about all that she does!
T.Rusk's work is stylish, classy and classic.  This beautiful, delicate bracelet is just stunning.  And these delicate lampwork, wire- wrapped earrings are so feminine an lovely.
 And if you're looking for truly classic, there is nothing more timeless than a graduated pearl necklace with matching earrings.  This beautiful set was created using the pearls from a pair of older, broken necklaces.  So on top of everything else, T.Rusk is 'eco-friendly' to boot!  Gorgeous... just gorgeous!

T.Rusk's store is Hollyhocks, LLC located in historic downtown Mebane, North Carolina.  All of these lovely pieces and more can be seen and enjoyed in person when you drop in!  
On the web, you can find her all over the place!  There's the T.Rusk4u blog, the Hollyhocks LLC blog, her HandmadeArtistsShop, her Etsy shop, Twitter and Facebook (I think I got everything!).
Please visit her sites and shops - you'll be so glad you did!
