As you all know, I love handmade finds - unique and one-of-a-kind. This week, I have two finds, the first of which I came across thanks to a friend in North Carolina. Circle Factory features the work of artist George Peterson, who works in hand-hewn wood and repurposed objects like these amazing "retired" skateboards from his Lingo series. Can you imagine a wall of these? So beautiful and tribal. I was an instant fan, and his wood sculptures and bowls are just stunning as well. Well worth a visit. My second discovery is thanks to a friend from the adoption world, India, whom I noticed wearing one of these "bone" necklaces in one of her facebook photos. I had to know where it came from.
The Etsy shop LORiOLA (coincidentally also out of NC) makes these beautiful encrusted "bone" glasswork necklaces.
