Welcome! I too, like some of the other people here on dims have an esty store. Hand crafted one of a kind items you will not find anywhere else. I started this thread to let you all know what's new in my shop as well as what I am working on. There are thousands of artists, crafters, and vendors on etsy. Even if my stuff is not your style, I encourage you to check them out. :)
I welcome questions and comments, so thanks for stopping by!

This is a hand painted one of a kind Tank Top I just put in my shop. I call it Cherry Obsession. ( more details are listed in the shop)

Oh, great, just what I need, yet another reason to lurk on Etsy and ogle pretty things in my free time. ;)

Love your shop, girly! And that top is darling. I'll be peering into your shop regularly. :)

Hey Ashley- The tank top was purchased online from Woman within. It was plain before I painted the design. :D

Oh, by the way- LOVE your pics on Big Cuties!!

I took some additional pics of my BUBBLE CHARMS today. They are on a lobster claw clasp and can be clipped to almost anything. Bubble Charms are wooden beads that I hand paint and then put them together with silver beads and clasp.

Kouskous, that tank is fantastic! I used to paint jeans in the 1970's and made a nice little business out of it at the time. Even painted some pants for a Kiss tribute band. LOL It's lots of fun, isn't it? Pretty little cherry/swirl design. :)

Thank You for the compliment! I really do love painting, sewing, crafting....and all that good stuff. I love to make things from my imagination into something tangible :D

Very cool on the kiss tribute thing, what a unique opportunity!

Here is a style of bag that I make. I call it "Hands Free"- for obvious reasons :) It was a necessity for me to have such a bag because I like to be able to touch stuff when I shop and I usually am also trying to carry a ton of stuff all at the same time.
This one is called "Burgundy Swirl", and is in my shop now.

Another one of my creations is the Fairy Pouch. I used to sell them in a local boutique. People would use them as an evening purse, bridal accessory, Jewelry storage, for prom, and as an elaborate gift bag.

Finally the holidays are over- and I can get back to doing what I love- Being crafty and making stuff. :D It is so therapeutic and I often wonder why more people do not grab a hunk of clay and create something beautiful. I am currently working on some chubby lady sculptures/figurines. I am very excited about them and can not wait to share them and hear what you all think.
As always, thanks for stopping by ;)

This is my first series of "Chubbies" - These are "Chubbies on a cherry".
Each of my Chubbies is posed on a cherry with a Cherry leaf for a hat. I hand sculpted them from Fimo/ polymer clay which makes each Chubbie unique with a personality of her own.
(Chubbies will be available at MiMiBcreations.etsy.com)

Lovely. I particularly like the glass and crystal one. :c) The lava is fun to work with, isn't it? I have some that I need to do more with. I love the contrast between the rough lava and smooth glass or pearls. That one is particularly perfect for the season.

I LOVE the handcrafted silver links in that piece! I know, it's probably a simpler part of such an intricately designed piece, but I think they really compliment it in contrast. You are so talented!

I really appreciate your use of reclaimed material. You have a real talent for knowing what works well together.

Kouskous
10-14-2010, 02:37 PM
Thank You!! Summer G, AtlantisAK, and Casting Pearls for your compliments!

The leaves are hand cut from sheets of metal with a jewelry saw. I then did smoothing, texture (hammered look), Attached the decorations on with solder and rivit. Then the final polish!

Handmaking my pieces is certainly more labor intensive then purchasing them ready to assemble however I would only be limited to what the store offered. As an artist, I don't ever want to be limited in what I design!
I love to use recycled or upcycled items! I use recycled copper, vintage buttons, keys, various metal findings and the Art Clay I use is a green product as well.
Bringing together all of the textures and colors to create the flow of my designs if fun and limitless- I am glad you all like my style!:wubu:
