Feature Friday Donation #54: Detailed flower cabochon ring #2 from Meg of FrameBoutique

December 9th, 2011

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a FF donation! So I’m happy to tell you that when Meghan of FrameBoutique, another fellow T.E.S.T. member and artisan, reached out to me a few months ago, she actually donated TWO of her beautiful Zinnia blossom rings set against a black lace filigree base. We featured the first one back in September (which someone bought within hours of us posting it!) and today, we have the second one up for grabs (grey-blue in colour at 5 o’clock in photo below):

You can see more of Meg’s elegantly handcrafted designs at frameboutique.etsy.com or frameboutique.blogspot.com/. Aside from her obvious talent as a jewelry designer, Meg also delves in painting, photography and writing.

Meg, thank you for this second donation — we really appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity.

Happy weekend everyone!

Sorry for this groaner of a D.A.D. but went grocery shopping and got inspired in the produce section — Collie flower:

Looks like this veggie has gone to the dogs …

Feature Friday Donation 50. Detailed flower cabochon ring from Meg of FrameBoutique

September 2nd, 2011
** Update: Meghan’s ring has been purchased and is no longer available.
You can see other classy works by Meg in her FrameBoutique etsy shop. THANKS! **

We are more than happy to introduce our Feature Friday artist this week, Meghan of FrameBoutique, another fellow T.E.S.T. member and artisan who got in touch with us because she wanted to support The D.A.D. Project. Meg has generously donated one of her beautiful wine red Zinnia blossom rings set against a black lace filigree base:

Meghan Somerville is a Toronto-based jewelry designer who strives to create exquisite and elegantly handcrafted, eco-friendly and oftentimes, upcycled items. Her jewelry embraces femininity through floral designs, colourful cabochon flowers and lace filigree while it also reclaims the masculine through whimsical moustache and upcycled tie necklaces.

After completing her master’s in English and marrying her best friend and partner of ten years, Sean, Meghan chose to try and tackle this new field, jewelry design. Since she was young, she had always felt a need to create whether it be working with acrylics on canvas, upcycling battered and worn books or crafting diverse types of jewelry. But Meghan’s craft doesn’t stop at jewelry; she is also an avid painter, a photographer and a writer.

To see more of Meghan’s work, please visit: frameboutique.etsy.com or frameboutique.blogspot.com/.

Many thanks again Meg – we really appreciate you reaching out to us to make your donation.


And another thanks to minouette, captain of the etsy T.E.S.T. group who made a donation in August, for featuring The D.A.D. Project in the group’s interview series yesterday — you can read the interview here on the T.E.S.T. blog. It’s been really amazing being part of this group with all the support, encouragement and donations we’ve received from fellow members — don’t think we can say thank you enough to everyone!


Hope everyone has a super first weekend of September!
