{ Does it seem kind of quiet around here? I gave the columnists the week off — Yay Spring Break! I hope you enjoy this week even though we’re on a very reduced posting schedule, and we’ll be back to full-strength on Monday. }

From Winter to you

Jenny Karlsson has a great shop full of one of a kind bags and accessories. From the wintery photography, to the carefully selected fabrics, I dare you not to purchase something from her.

thumbBio: I’m a Swedish lass who loves to create things.
I like to laugh and to feel and to find wisdom. I love trees and plants and birds and nature in general.
I have always been making things, and now a days it’s more of a necessity in life for me.
I easily get stuck in shops selling fabrics, yarns and beads. As well as vintage & second hand shops…
I like old things.

Jenny Karlsson Design makes handmade accessories with the aim for ‘feeling before fashion’ and individuality, uniqueness & quality is very important. I make each bag & item from scratch, I never use a pattern, except the ones I keep in my head. :) Each handbag is unique and marked with an embroidered number.

Bags range from $35 – $65, and if you see one you like you’d better grab it, because they’re all one of a kind.

Patrick Irla Jewelry

Every piece of jewelry in my shop has been handmade by me. Lost wax casting is my primary medium and everything in my shop has been cast in my studio. I make all my own models and do my own casting, fabrication, and finishing. I use green sources whenever possible, recycled metals, certified conflict free diamonds, and nickel free sterling silver. I use solid 14k, or 18k gold earwires and posts on many items for strength and for those with sensitivities.

Dreaming of my chevy and my old blue jeans

YUM! My feet are freezing as I type this, and these look amazing! Head over to The Crocodile Rock and get them before I do.

bio: I’m a work-at-home mom with a kid and a lovely husband (who always helps with the housework when he can :), and a passionate knitter and sewer with a taste for the cute and the cuddly :) I think my kid is my real, true inspiration for my work (he loves it, the croc in my avatar is the one I made for him is his favorite).

My sewing and knitting “career” started way back when I was a little girl with my grandma. I spent a lot of my winters at grandma’s mountainside cottage, helping my grandma with the family recipes and knitting and sewing with her; I’ve been doing it ever since, and I have no regrets.
