Featured Artist: Katker
Katker's Bloomin' Button jewelry is charming with more than a touch of sophistication. These delightful adornments feature vintage beads, and are available in earrings, rings, necklaces and brooches.
The artist says: "I have been making jewelry off and on since my teens. I realized earlier this year (2009) that I have been working in an office for half of my life, mostly in the legal field. Lately I've been feeling a little like Erin Brockovich - "I hate lawyers, I just work for them." So after many weeks of thinking and brooding, I decided that I needed to indulge my creative side more if I wanted to stay relatively sane.
The jewelry creations in my shop were created using a mix of vintage and contemporary beads, buttons and findings. I love to work with vintage and new Swarovski and vintage Czech glass buttons. The great thing about working with vintage beads and findings is that most of what I create is one of a kind, so you can have unique jewelry that no one else has! Isn't that fantastic?"
Oh, I do like these Dameka Daisy Bloomin' Button earrings: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29142060
