I ran across an amazing jewelry artist on Etsy the other day. Her shop is Kathi Roussel. He photography shows off her jewelry in such a beautiful whimsical way! Below is a little paragraph about the artists work and her Etsy experience.
I am currently in love with making handcrafted jewelry, mostly in silver--often applying surface patinas and enamels to bring color and warmth to the metal. I feel as though I'm just beginning to find my voice in the medium. I studied painting & drawing initially-- years ago when I attended art school. Then some time after having my oldest two boys, I studied ceramics, and made/make sculpture and functional pottery. Working in metal has become a new passion, and influences from my past work/mediums are always surfacing. The sculptural possibilities working in this small format are quite challenging and exciting!
I'm thrilled to have found Etsy-- as it provides a wonderful arena for my own work & artists of all kinds. It is brimming with talented, creative & hard working souls! I have met so many kind, wonderful people already--- I'm looking forward to meeting many more!...and to making lots and lots of jewelry.
