AMAZING! Artists With a Special Touch:
The featured artist in this week's blog ring at the Handmade Artists' Forum is Kim of Makin' the Best of It. To say that this lady is multi-talented is a huge understatement! She is a wife and mother of two boys. She is part of the founding team of the Handmade Artists' Forum/Blog/Shops. She is a tireless promoter of handmade. And she's a gifted artist in more than one field. The big question is... is she a mere human?!
I love wire-wrap! I am just blown away by good wire-wrap. This blue sea-glass wire-wrap pendant is not just good; it's flat out gorgeous! I've tried to play with wire on a couple of occasions and my efforts don't have the fluid, curvy, balanced lines that this pendant does. It takes patience and a great deal of vision of the finished piece to succeed at wire-wrap on this level. Need to own this? Click here for the full item description.
Sticking with the blue motif, this hand-painted vase is to die for! The rose motif is so elegant and understated.
... or you could choose elegant stemware, hand- painted with white magnolias and green leaves. Kim states that the buyer needs to remember that each item is individually hand-painted, so no two will ever be excatly the same. This adds to their charm!
As if this wasn't enough, Kim has a wonderful blog as well! A visit to Kim's websites can be an all-day adventure! Pour yourself a beverage and grab a snack... then have a wonderful visit with Kim!
