Ah...Tuesdays! One of my favorite days of the week! I love being able to introduce to you creative and talented people! Most Tuesdays, I feature 3 of my blog followers and share whatever I can glean from their profiles and sites with the rest of my readers. It's my way of saying "thanks for following" and spreading the love a little bit!
Today, I have chosen Beryl, Meltem, and Paige---all of whom happen to make jewelry, but each with their own unique and beautiful style.
Beryl is an RN clinical manager in Arizona and mother of 2. She creates fun jewelry and crafts and prefers working with metal--especially found objects and hardware. Check out her fun and whimsical pieces in her Artfire shop, BerylthePeril, as well as her blog, Beryl Jewelry. She can also be followed on Twitter.
Meltem, from Istanbul, Turkey, has learned the arts of goldsmithing and silversmithing and her work reflects a combination of her cultural heritage and modern art. Her Etsy shop, meltemsem, is filled with beautiful jewelry, as is her Artfire shop, and you can check out her blogs: Melt'm Design Studio, Melt'm Design Studio Gallery, and Takilar Bir Arada. Browse through her Flickr photostream and find her on Facebook and Twitter.
Paige is originally from northern Minnesota, but now resides in southern California, where she creates jewelry from metal clay, silver, bronze, copper, sterling silver, copper, found objects, shells, stones, beautiful beads, gem stones, and anything she can get her hands on! You can find her items in her Etsy shop: Hammer Stitch Burn and find out more about her on her blog of the same name.
I'd like to close this post with a thank you to all of my followers! If you are not a follower yet, and would like to be featured in a Tuesday Meet and Greet in the future, please become a follower here or on Facebook's Networked Blogs and you will publicly thanked with an introduction and links to your shops and blogs, as well!
