** Update: Meghan’s ring has been purchased and is no longer available.
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!
