Thank you, everyone, yesterday for taking a look at the off-the-topic-for-this-blog post I put up. Every once in a while, a break from the norm is a good thing, especially for something so important.
When I first came upon today's shop, I was struck at first by the shop's clean lines and crisp photos. So struck, that it took me a minute to realize what I was looking at.
I've seen quite a few of the "reuse, recycle" artists and work out there, and I'd never name any names, but there's a substantial portion of artisans in this venue that produce (what to me personally) looks like just... slapped together junk.
Tanith on Etsy is -not- one of those.
Tanith sells Guitar String, Steampunk and Found Object Jewelry What this means is that they specialize in jewelry handmade from guitar strings and other found objects. Yep... Found objects. You wouldn't know it, though, to look at the pieces in their shop.
Tanith Rohe is the artist of these terrific, innovative pieces, and is a featured artist at both The Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco, CA as well as the Sonoma Valley Music Center in Sonoma, CA.
Tanith loves to take an object that would appear as trash to another and to turn it into a work of art, and does an excellent job at doing just that! This shop is a stunning example of what you can do with a little innovation and creativity behind you to guide your way.
