I got an email from dilkathebear the she put me as a contact on Flickr. She's an amazing artist from Italy, selling her work on Etsy. Please click the link below to see her other work.
Dilkabear's Etsy ShopAlright, simple enough. She also had these wonderful lockets with her artwork on them that intrigued me. I saw that she was having them made by another Etsy artist, Polarity.
Polarity But the artist isn't Polarity, she's Catherine Ivins and she owns Olive Bites Studios which she says is "Repurposing Sustainable Cork and Upcycling Recycled Steel into Amazing Jewelry and Housewares"
To say the least! I'm in love with these little bits of magic she's making. But what's that? She's living in NJ? By the shore? No. Can't be. Yup. An artist from Italy friends me on Flickr which prompts me to search out the little lockets she's got for sale which brings me to another artist who probably lives really close by me. And I've never heard of her. I love the internets!
So my mind is whirling with ideas and I emailed Catherine in hopes that we can collaborate on something. But before any of that, I wanted to get the work of these two wonderful artists out there. So visit, love and buy something fun :D

Way back when, I mentioned finding the lovely work of Catherine Ivins and her Polarity lockets. Well, don't tell anybody but I got a sneak peek at the two sets she's making with my artwork. Should be up in her Etsy shop any day now and I'm getting some special sets made for my shop as well. Thanks Cat! Enjoy :D
