Variation


These little dolls are so cute that I couldn't resist telling you about them . The name of the shop is variation . The owner wishes to keep her identity secret at the moment , but did not mind telling about her work .
''I love to work in a wide variety of mediums, hence the name of my Etsy shop! But for now, since I just started officially selling in February, I'm focusing on bead work -- dolls, and some jewelry (coming soon). I also knit, crochet, embroider, sew, do some bookbinding and letterpress, metalsmithing, collage/assemblage, digital graphics and animation.
The medium I'm working with now, beads and wire work, is something I feel I have mastered and can create a product in a relatively reasonable amount of time without too much equipment, whereas something like letterpress would need a much more elaborate set-up. I have a full time job, so I can only devote weekends and evenings to making products for my Etsy shop.
I've always been inspired by the amazing work I see from many, many artists and crafters, past and present, across all mediums. I love work that introduces me to new forms and methods of creating, and I'm inspired by excellent craftsmanship (something I aspire to). I love the community that comes with sharing your work and learning from fellow artists.'' She is certainly a very talented artist !
