I have long admired Vanessa’s adorable little drawings – the simplicity of her little “birdies” that while sitting so quietly, bring a certain lifeness to her sketches. Her sketches seem to capture the essence of the early 60’s – when life was so simple. Vanessa, who lives with her husband in Arizona, describes herself as "girly-girl", which shows in her “fun and feminine” work. Vanessa also incorporate her love her nature and bird in each piece of her jewelry, of which I have shown a few examples.
When Vanessa is not working on her craft which we can admire in her shop: http://www.designsbyvanessa.etsy.com, she is celebrating her passion for her friends and family; and is mostly passionate about her various crafty talents such as, Photography, Scrapbooking, Journaling, Jewelry, Purple & Pink (also my two favorite colors!), Traveling, Working Out, Retail Therapy, Reading, Movies, Music, Fashion and anything that will hold my attention!" So with all these activities it is any wonder that Vanessa finds anytime to work on her shop on Etsy. For those who are not familiar with her work, here are a few samples of which really attracted me, and will make you a fan of her work also!
Vanessa also has an enjoyable blog: http://www. designsbyvanessa.blogspot.com. In the words of Vanessa –♥ Thank you so much! ♥
