A big thanks to all of the folks who made it to CRAFTED this past November or December. I had a very successful holiday season at CRAFTED with record sales so I have been very busy working on new merchandise! It was wonderful meeting new people and visiting with dear friends who came in to visit and shop often.
The new year is always a promise of hope. Last year is a blur for me, with the loss of my mother. February 15, 2015 marks one year since I last held her and told her, in the flesh that I love her. But alas with time we tuck things away in our hearts to move forward. This year I'm committed to try new things, to shove fear aside, to pound out my message if need be....At the same time cherishing what I've had....All the time celebrating what is and is to come.
This years' goal for Nagare Boutique is to keep this website as well as my Nagare Etsy shop, updated and current with my newest creations. So, keep checking back to see what is new and remember one-of-a-kind is "one and done". If an item is sold...it is gone baby, gone.
It would be great to see you in person to exchange greetings and smiles...share what is new.
What's new with the shop? I've been playing more with multimedia pieces combining chain, leather, beads, fabric, metal, shells, and what not. Come see my long necklaces with a ring cluster full of goodies, dangling with earthy sparkle often sharing a message. I've been metal stamping, gently pounding out words and messages onto metal for pieces with attitude. I've made some really darling leather rings with big silver or gold buckles. I've been playing with up-cycling not only in my felted flowers but with aluminum can cut out flowers to dangle from the ears as well as new fabric and wire wrapped beads, (fabric from Saris via India or from my closet of past favorite garments.) And of course...Nagare knitwear continues to flourish in painted colors appearing as blurry landscapes or psychedelic 60's posters is the form of hats, finger-less gloves, wraps, and cowls!
Hope to see or hear from you soon!
