Michelle Prosek: I am inspired by the flowing organic forms of nature and the clean lines of geometry and architecture. I love experimenting with new ideas and pushing the boundaries of what glass can do.
I personally cut, carve, fuse and shape every single one of my designs to ensure that they are all one of a kind works of art. Each finished piece can take up to 90 hours to complete. I often feel like a pioneer in the glass fusing arts, because I am constantly creating new techniques and methods for working with kiln-fired glass.
SpunkySister: “Jewelry to inspire. Art to wear.”
I have Design ADD. I can’t make anything twice… so everything is one of a kind. I view my designs as art. I have so many ideas, that I usually have about three projects going at once.
I get inspired by fashion, nature, the vintage brooches I use, even soap bar wrappers. Maybe my pieces can inspire you… Enjoy!
For reals now, one of the reasons I started this site was so that lovely folks such as yourselves would buy these fabulous Etsy finds before I do. Trust me, that’s not a line, that the honest truth — just ask my husband who sighs every time he hears a package being delivered on our porch.
I need your help today a great deal. This ring is calling calling to me and I adore it so. Please purchase it so that I can stop sitting on my hands. I love the wild and unstructured nature of it, and the colors and materials are exquisite. It makes my heart beat a little faster. By negellatj.

Andy Peutherer: I am a Scottish artist and Photographer. My landscape work featured here is based on the spectacular scenery of The Scottish western Isles, Scottish highlands and the Hebriden Islands such as The Isle of Skye, the Uists, Lewis and Harris. I have a great passion for the landscape and natural history of Scotland which has led me to attempt to capture the almost surreal elements of the Scottish landscape, weather and wildlife. My paintings are created with mixed media such as spray paint, acrylic, emulsion and ink which are used together with self taught techniques to illustrate the wild, unpredictable and spectacular nature of the land and sky. I strive to create images which have a more original style than traditional water colours and oils.
