Spreading the Paper Love

Sarah "loves working with different types of media and textures, and seeing where my hands take me! No two pieces that I make are exactly alike, and all are originals!"
Be sure to visit her wonderful Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/danae777 where you are sure to find something special!

My name is Sarah and I make unique jewelry using everything from felt to metal charms and whatever else I can come up with! I have been creating for as long as I can remember and I started my Etsy shop back in 2006. The reason my shop is called paperlove is because when I started out, I was more into making note cards and journals, but I have shifted more-so to jewelry making! I hope to eventually find the time to also add more of my journals to my shop, but who knows!

I am currently an art student in Chicago and I hope to eventually become an art teacher so that I may share my love of working with my hands to make beautiful things with others! My studio space is a little corner in my apartment where I have totes upon totes of materials and supplies, and a bookcase that seems to be exploding with felt and other miscellaneous items! It’s a bit cramped, but cozy, and gives me at least a little space to pursue my passion!

The majority of my items are necklaces and earrings utilizing the softness of felt mixed with the smooth metal charms and other jewels I find. I love to mix different textures and to show different aspects of nature in each of my pieces, whether it be in leaves, feathers, animals or flowers! I am always coming up with new ideas for new pieces!
I truly hope that this passionate hobby of mine turns into something much more! I want to be doing this until I am old and gray and to share my love for creating with everyone! When I am not busy working on new pieces or toiling away in my studio, I also go to school full time working on my art degree, working at my job (still have to keep that day job), I write for a indie-trend website called iamthetrend.com, and I take care of my three cats and boyfriend. It’s a lot of work, but in the end everything is well worth it!

I also write for a blog called www.iamthetrend.com
I write for the WARES section of the website. If you would like me to feature your shop or a product, send me a message and let me know!

Thanks to thereddoor for spreading the paperlove!
