How it works:
Every Monday, Nature Manipulated will host a giveaway from a fabulous Etsy or Artfire shop. For a chance to win the prize you must leave a comment on NM's blog (to this post) with the following items:
1) A link to your favorite item in the featured seller's shop
2) Your email or Etsy (or Artfire) shop URL (so I can contact you if you are the winner)
If you do not include BOTH items in the comments your entry will not be included.
The contest will run through 11:59 p.m. Eastern, Sunday, March 15, 2009. The following Monday, I will pick the winner at random and contact the winner via email or Etsy convo.
One entry per person.
Sarah Kathleen Warner is a studio jeweler who recently relocated to Brooklyn, NY. She received her Bachelor of Industrial Design from N.C. State University in 2000. During that time she began making jewelry, and has continued her education in craft materials at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Penland School of Crafts, and Virginia Commonwealth University. A year of study at the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture provided access to a rich history of objects to mine for ideas and inspiration to combine with her own. Nature and materiality also influence her designs. Sarah loves to travel and learn foreign languages. She has spent time in Italy, France, Spain, and Brazil.
Sarah's work explores materiality, movement and symbolism. She seeks to create a sense of luxury utilizing the weight, luster and tactility of traditional materials including silver, gold and pearls, as well as less conventional acrylic and silk. The human body provides the catalyst to create motion (and even sound) in many of these pieces. History provides a rich mine of symbols to explore and abstract.
Post a link to your favorite item from Sarah Kathleen Warner's shop, along with your email address (or Etsy URL or username) for a chance to win a pair of Tiny Pod Stud Earrings.
