Blessings Be for 2012 to all of you!

What: Creator of Vegan CaveGirl and other Comic Books, ACEO, Prints, Limited Edition and Original Artwork
Where: Whitby, England, UK
Why: Why should carnivores have all the fun? ;)
Note: Lots of brave and brazen buxom-ness here so shield the pups' and kitties' eyes!

Who: Emily Ivey of Yarn Miracle
What: Handknit Stuffed Animals and Patterns
Where: Bay Minette, AL
Why: Squealingly irresistibly sweet and huggable. There, I said it. Huggable. :)

True To Her Word

Who: Jeanine Taylor of Snooty Jewelry
What: 14K Gold, Sterling Silver and 14K Gold-filled Jewelry
Where: Marlborough, MA
Why: When it comes to designing animal-friendly jewels, Jeanine stays true to her word. A steadfast vegan, she chooses not to use pearls, shell, bone, silk or leather in any of her pieces. Not only that, she's eco-friendly too, using environmentally responsible packaging and processes in all aspects of her business. A majority of her collection is devoted to animal and peaceable themes, but you can choose from more traditional styles as well, such as simple sterling rings, earrings and more. Proceeds from some pieces, like the greyhound pin, go directly to specific charities, and a portion of all proceeds are donated as well. Jeanine's jewels are eye-catching, affordable and easily wearable, and they are a fun, subtle way to get the cruelty-free message across without batting someone over the head with vegan-tagonism. And they're way easier to put on than a vegan tattoo. ;)

With Her Own Fair Hands

Who: Dana Gabrielle Russo of Style and Ink
What: Handcrafted Knit and Felted Accessories, Prints and Illustrations
Where: Albany, NY
Why: Dana is a bundle of creative energy with non-stop hands that beg to be she started crocheting and voila! A luxurious collection of softly textured cowls and hoods in a range of timeless earthen hues, all made from animal- and Earth-friendly fabrics. Dana's graceful, lacy designs seem lighter than air, and her chunky and super chunky styles wrap you in soul-filling warmth. I want them looped and snugged around my neck, arms, legs and my chilly little head!
Dana also is an amazing illustrator and creator of fun felted playful things, as well as a poet, writer, photographer and spirited doodler. Here's hoping that her talented hands never stop!

A Rare Find

Who: Catherine Mullins of Rare Tee Clothing
What: Jewelry, graphic t-shirts and accessories
Where: Los Angeles, CA
Why: Fun printed tees and tanks and sterling silver animal charms serve to raise awareness of endangered species around the globe. A percentage of your purchase goes to get to choose which one!
Catherine started out working for a corporate fashion company, but quickly became disillusioned with their attitude towards sustainability and compassionate awareness...or rather the lack thereof. She decided to go her own way, opened an etsy shop and isn't looking back. She has plans to do higher-end pieces that continue her sustainable, eco-aware and animal-friendly mantra. I'm looking forward to her future work!
(And FYI, she says: 15% off everything in her etsy store through the month of Dec! Just use the coupon code VEGMAS !!)

Two on Tuesdays...Sweet and Green

Who: Katey Corrigan of Confection Letterpress
What: Letterpress Design and Printing
Where: Amesbury, MA
Why: It's easy to love Katey's elegant nature-centered letterpress cards, calendars, coasters, invites and broadsides on recycled and tree-free papers. Designs that are soulful and quietly reverential...most of the time.

Who: Lisa Pratt and Lars Jorgensen of Green House Framing
What: Reclaimed Wood Picture Frames, Mirrors, Jewelry and Decor
Where: Portland, OR
Why: Every beautiful print deserves a richly-hued hand-hewn forest-preserving frame. And maybe a shelf to keep it on. And a trinket or two beside it.

Labels: , , , ,

Let It Rain

Who: Cara Long of Sweet Mud Clay Works
What: Handmade Porcelain Jewelry and Functional Ceramics
Where: Philadelphia, PA
Why: Because I've had this thing for sweet little umbrellas in the past few days. :)
I love the light-hearted whimsy of Cara's designs...jaunty parasols, bicycles at the ready, and a floaty heart or two. They remind me of my favorite umbrella as a kid (it was see-through so I could look up at the rain as it cool!) and my trusty green bike that survived the wipeouts even when my knees didn't.
Be sure to check out both shops, as the inventory is a bit different at each, or to see the pieces in person, visit her website for links to the galleries and museums that carry her work.

On Board With It

Who: Gilly Seagrave of Ekawear
What: Hand-crocheted hats, scarves, mittens and accessories
Where: Cambridge UK, Malmo Sweden and Morzine France
Why: Gilly Seagrave is a non-stop continent-hopping mad crazy cool ball of ethical energy! Not only is she a competitive snowboarder, but she runs snowboarding events and camps for girls as well as her ekashops, featuring organic, sustainable, vegan, fair-trade knits...I'm out of breath just typing that all! She deeply cares about the details of her work, making sure that what she produces is ethically made and beautifully fashioned. Her energy and enthusiasm are a joy to behold and her integrity is a model for us all to follow.

Handmade Love

Who: Rebecca Cason of edward and lilly
What: Embroidery, homewares, soft toys and accessories
Where: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Why: Stop by Rebecca's website or etsy shop and you can't help buy be charmed by the gentle but generous enthusiasm she has for her work and for her approach to crafting. A long-time vegetarian-turned-vegan, Rebecca uses cruelty-free, eco-friendly, sustainable materials such as Kunin felt (made from recycled plastic), linen, hemp and organic cotton. She is a tireless supporter of handmade crafters and dedicates a majority of her website to featuring some of the best new and established independent artists. Her own work has an almost child-like quality to it...simple, cute creatures like echidnas and little dachsunds, baby owls, little cottages...all stitched with a caring hand. I enjoy her work and her website very much and now that I've found her, I'll definitely be back for more!

Crafting With Compassion

Who: Pennie Mills Jewelry

Why: Pennie's handmade cruelty-free vegan jewelry is simple and sweet. Anklets, bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces feature lovely gem and Swarovski crystal beads in soft pleasant hues. Pennie is an active supporter of animal rights, and she donates regularly to numerous organizations including Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, SASHA Farm, Bay State Equine Rescue and Stop the Seal Hunt.
Truly Good Karma Jewelry!

Wintry Knits

Who: Natalie LeGuerrier of Knits By Nat
What: Vegan Knitted Creations
Where: Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Why: Happy Winter Solstice! In the spirit of all things wintry, I introduce you to Knits by Nat, a super snuggle-worthy collection of richly textured knits...the usual scarves, hats, cowls and fingerless gloves which are all the rage, as well as cup cozies, sweaters and the occasional cat blankie. Natalie uses only vegan fibers (acrylic, cotton, bamboo, linen, nylon, polyester, viscose, etc) and truly enjoys creating pieces with real feel-ability. I want one of each, a good book and a mug of steamy hot chocolate thank you.

What: Handcrafted borosilicate glass marbles, paperweights and jewelry

Tales and Talismans

Who: Jeanette Easby of Square Hare Jewellery
What: Handcrafted Jewelry
Where: Saltburn by the Sea, North Yorkshire, UK
Why: We all grew up listening to stories, fables and myths centered around creatures real and imagined. They enchanted us with sorcery and magic, they instructed us with wisdom and patience, they amused us with cleverness and wit. And they remain with us into adulthood through dreams, art, architecture and countless other ways, including talismanic jewelry. Jeanette Easby enjoys bringing these creatures to life in her pieces ...they are fun, playful and perfectly wearable. They remind us that those magical stories still echo in our consciousness, and they just might reflect some hidden magic that secretly dances all around us.

From Heart to Hand

Who: Susmitha Subbaraju, aka Veganosaurus
What: Handcrafted Jewelry, Art Beads, Miniature Sculptures
Where: Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Why: Susmitha is a true artisan, heart and soul. She creates fun, whimsically spirited jewelry using copper, sterling silver, polymer clay, gemstones, crystals and lampwork glass beads, each piece instilled with her optimistic, meditative spirit. In addition to being an artist, she is a Reiki practitioner, Tarot reader and proud vegan (as evidenced by her nickname Veganosaurus!). She donates a portion of her proceeds each month to an animal charity and often donates pieces to charity fundraisers. Her joyous approach to life is evident in her own words...
"When I'm creating, I'm in bliss. I plunge my entire being into what I'm making and let the love flow through me to the work of art that is being formed."

A Fire in His Heart

Who: Eugene Duplessis
What: Pyrography
Where: Maitland, Australia
Why: Born in South Africa and raised a vegetarian, Eugene has been a vegan for over 8 years and an animal admirer all his life. He's also a world traveler, animal-rights advocate and truly talented artist in the practice of Pyrography (the art of burning images into wood). His carefully rendered images of African wildlife grace wooden "canvases" up to 4 feet across, giving them the majestic reverence that they deserve. A percentage of his sales is donated to animal rights groups and animal wildlife foundations as well. It warms my soul to see artists using their talent to make a difference and sincerely give back in such a beautiful way!

Serenity in Celadon

Who: Mary Dorsch Pottery
What: Hand-built and Wheel-thrown Stoneware using Handmade Glazes
Where: San Jose, CA
Web: (currently sold out, but you can view previous sales)
Why: As an eco-respecting ceramicist Mary does everything right...she's an officially Certified Green Business, minimizing energy by maximizing material reuse, recycling, using wind power and even smashing and donating her misfires to local mosaic artists. So great. She's an uber-conscious artist, but what about the art? I say it's aesthetically appealing and serenely satisfying. Her quirky tea sets and neti pots are graceful and amusing, her Asian-esque bowls and vessels very pleasing. And a train of those turtles would make anyone smile!

Something for the Gentlemen?

Who: Sheatiel Sarao and Cody Vrosh of Binary Winter Press
What: Hand-printed Illustrations, Books and Clothing
Where: San Francisco, CA
Why: Intriguing, intricate illustrations evoking Art Nouveau, Steampunk and Techno-Fantasy themes are sometimes lush, sometimes spare. Gorgeous original work by two super talented artists, printed in their eco-friendly vegan workshop, appeals equally to men (fabulous ties!) and women, and completely captures my heart.

It's a Hands-on Experience

Who: Ursula Jaroszewicz of Pepper Press
What: Letterpress Design Studio
Where: Brooklyn, NY
Why: I feel a kinship with this girl. Her art is as much about the heady stuff of design and composition as it is about getting her hands on the machines and literally getting a feel for the letterpress process. From using, adjusting and tinkering with the machines to enjoying the velvety feel of the impressions into the paper, she is immersed in the tangibility of her work. Clever, eye-catching, eco-inspired designs coupled with the pleasure of finely crafted paper-work spins me in delight! She makes me want to give up the torch and take up the letterpress...well, almost.

Bowl Me Over

Question: What was your favorite Saturday morning activity when you were a kid?
Answer: Munching on giant bowls of cereal while watching cartoons.
Big. Giant. Bowls.

Nothing was more fun on a Saturday than waking and sleepily wandering down to the TV room to claim first dibs on which cartoons to watch, then pouring bowls of sugar, er...cereal for breakfast. Froot Loops or Apple Jacks for me, Cap'n Crunch or Count Chocula for my brother. By the time the usual run of cartoons was over, the sugar kicked in and we scampered off to the backyard or the basement to plot our next treasure hunt or play Hot Wheels or climb trees. I pretty much do the same thing now, changed up just a bit. Still love watching toons. The cereal is granola and the milk is usually almond or soy. Love treasure hunts and Hot Wheels, but the tree-climbing thing...not gonna happen. ;)
On my gift list this year...a Vegan cereal bowl!

Who: Jeanette Zeis of Vegan Dish, Vessels and Wares and Quiet Animals
What: Handmade Pottery
Where: Atlanta, GA
Web: (currently on hiatus, but check out her sold items)
Why: Jeanette's charming glazed stoneware would brighten up any morning! Vegan Dish is dedicated to Vegan-inscribed bowls and mugs in a lovely soft peasant-life style. Vessels and Wares features functional pottery such as travel mugs, berry bowls, cupcake stands and spoons with whimsical patterns and vintage hues. Quiet Animals is all about quirky critters on wooden tiles and ceramic doodads.

Question: What was your favorite Saturday morning routine? Sleeping in? Tooning on TV? Dive bombing your brother in bed?

You Couldn't Ask for Anything More

Who: Tamara McFarland of McFarland Designs
What: Handcrafted Jewelry
Where: Arcata, CA
Why: So many reasons...
~ Simple easy-to-love totally wearable designs
~ A recycled rainbow of metals including sterling silver, 18K and 14K yellow, rose, white and green golds
~ Fair trade natural gems such as Oregon Sunstone and Montana Sapphire
~ Synthetic gems such as Moissanite in many hues
~ Timeless wedding ring and custom-designs
~ She donates significantly to charity. She's a vegan. She rescues animals...lots and lots of cute animals.
In my opinion that's about as close to a perfect jeweler as you can get. Cheers!

Who: Peter Max
What: Fine and commercial art
Where: NYC
Why: When I was about 6 years old I won a paint-by-number kit of the Beatles' "Yellow Submarine" and ever since I've been fascinated by that vibrant hyper-colorful psychedelic style of art. Peter Max did not work on the Submarine film, but he is said to have influenced its artists as well as a whole movement reflecting the passionate creativity of the era. A long-time vegan he often designs for eco-revering organizations and has been known to rescue a cow or two in his time. His work cheers me up like a fruity popsicle on a hot July day...color me happy!

Two on Tuesdays...Mercy with Magic

Who: Samantha Vrij of Bewittched/Slow Water Studio
What: Jewelry, glass and sculpture
Where: Puhoi, New Zealand
Why: Delicate pate de verre glass castings are her forte, but vegan artist Samantha Vrij also does fabulous garden sculptures and wind chimes as well as fun and playful gothic-inspired jewelry. Her poesy rings can be stacked and set with gems such as Moonstone and Amethyst, and her earrings, lockets and locket rings are easily wearable and eye-catching. She has a real feel for 3D forms and puts it to good use in conjuring her beautifully "bewittching" pieces.

Who: Rachel Anderson of Two Silver Stars
What: Prints, cards, jewelry and gifts
Where: Ithaca, NY
Why: Supertalented Rachel is an accomplished artist, illustrating in a style reminiscent of Pre-Raphaelites like Dante Gabriel Rossetti and modern artists like Brian Froud. She brings lush vivid color to life in her dreamy pendants, prints and gifts, all created with eco- and animal-friendly ideals in mind. Her profound love and respect for nature and all the magical beauty found in it are woven throughout her work. Irresistible, ethical and enchanting.

Ethics at the Bench

Who: Kerstin Laibach of Atelier Laibach
What: Handcrafted Jewelry
Where: Hausen im Wiesental, Germany and Dorset, England
Why: Frosty, warm and inviting, Kerstin's designs are created in fine and sterling silver, 14K and 18K gold, palladium and platinum, many with 24K gold accents.

She also specializes in custom designs from the ground up or rejuvenating your current pieces.
Kerstin is 100% committed to ethical practices, such as:
~ using only recycled precious metals and no newly-mined gems
~ striving for chemical and hazard-free crafting
~ pursuing carbon-inverted targets (putting more back into nature than taking from it)
~ adhering to cruelty-free/vegan principles
~ donating 10% of sales to wildlife and conservation
At 34 years of age, Kerstin is one of many in the new eco-respecting metalsmith movement firing up around the world. Wielding torches with talent and integrity...gotta love it.

Gifts in Kindness

Who: Sherry Duquet and Sandy Boulton of Solstice Designs
What: Handcrafted Jewelry
Where: Dearborn, MI
Why: Solstice Designs, the soulful love child of my good friends Sherry Duquet and Sandy Boulton, is devoted to creating jewelry that truly changes lives. Collections include "Gifts that Give", which donates a portion of each piece sold to women-centered organizations and "Pay It Forward", featuring easily affordable pieces (around $6) that "celebrate and encourage random acts of kindness". All of their designs beautifully express compassion and inner strength...they are touchingly thoughtful and treasurable too.
Sherry and Sandy give back in so many ways, including their fun and feisty blog Exploits of a Vegan Wannabe, their Project Mother's Day and Projects Produce and Nourish which benefit domestic abuse shelters, and their continuing commitment to teach and enlighten and inspire.
...and they conjure up the most daringly delicious vegan recipes!

Gypsy Girl

Just for yips and giggles I'm going to do a vegan theme this month. I'm a die-hard, though non-preachy, vegan so I'd like to feature artists devoted to veganism in life and in their creative endeavors. Let's give it a try.

"My creations come from that place between sleep and awake, a magical place where the world is kinder. I hope to tell a story with my inspire people to see life in a more beautiful and compassionate way."
Who: Elise Hollandsworth Hartmann aka Dark Faerie Creations
What: Prints, boxes, dolls, jewelry and jester sticks
Where: Allentown, NJ
Why: I stumbled over this mysteriously-named "The Gypsy That I Was" and had to peek. I've been a gypsy girl at heart all my life and my Halloween costumes as a kid looked just like this enigmatic fortune-teller. Don't her eyes just enchant you and make you wonder about her story? And what's in the box? And what's in the future?
