This posting may be a bit unorthodox but given my dear friend Keri's newbie status with blogs I'm taking the proverbial bull by the horn and announcing that Keri was awarded with the honorable "Arte Y Pico" Award which is The Creativity and Art Award and I'm certain she's quite honored to receive it. ;)
In receiving this beautiful award it is her honor & responsibility to pass the award on to five other fellow artist whom she greatly admires. Now normally Keri would post those names here but at the moment her special talents are in posting comments. Soooo, I'm certain that Keri will add a comment or two, noting the individuals she admires within the Arts (and she won't include me as I'm the one who bestowed the award on her ~wink~).
Now at the same time a littler bird has been telling me to post one of those shameless plugs about my work and since I adore this little bird I find I must comply. So, here it is...
Mana Moon Studios is the name of the business my husband and I co-own. While my hubby creates fantastic Chain Maille wears I busy my fingers with my original Woven Wire Bracelets & Fiberwear Treasures. The bracelets are an original design of mine and I find such enjoyment in featuring artist's Lampwork beads as focals. It's a delight of mine to bring fabulous arts to the spotlight by framing their gorgeous works of art.
We sell our original creations through our website located at http://www.manamoon.com as well as through Etsy shop, on Smashing Darling and several retail locations. My bracelets have been featured on oodles of blogs, websites & favorites lists and it's a continuing honor to be included.
Recently I've branched out by bringing my years of Graphic Design and Web Design experience into the picture by opening a new Etsy shop featuring my original banner & avatar sets. They're perfect for the new business just opening on Etsy or for those looking to improve on their professional & creative presence. I offer prefab banner sets, custom orders & photo editing to name a few. So, if you're looking for either the perfect one-of-a-kind gift (for a friend or for yourself) or if you're in the market for a delightfully whimsical banner, stop on over to one of our stores... you won't be disappointed and I'd love to see you there!
