Friday Featured Artist - Willow and Me

I am planning to feature a new artist each week to show you some of the other wonderful people selling on Etsy and/or working in metal clay. Today’s artist, Lisa from Maine, is both. She sells lovely silver and copper metal clay jewelry on Etsy. If you like my pieces, you are going to love her shop Willow and Me, we have a similar style and both have a love of leaves. And how can you not adore her cat Willow, who the shop is named after?

Are you a beader? I adore this clasp and could see it with some lovely amethyst or labradorite beads and silver spacers.

Perfect for spring, I also love her pussy willow collection. I fondly remember going for walks as a kid and picking pussy willows to bring home. Don’t you just want to rub the felt on these guys?

Lisa is also trying to raise awareness through her blog about a rare disease called Wegeners Granulomatosis. It is an uncommon disease causing bloody noses, chronic sinus infections, perforated steptum, and respiratory problems, such as chest pain, tightness and breathing problems. You can read more about Lisa’s struggle with the disease on her blog. Also, through the month of April, ten percent of all sales in Lisa’s Etsy shop will be donated to the Vasculitis Foundation. So let’s go shopping!
