Some of you may have noticed my new Jewelry Gallery page growing on this blog, and new Etsy banner on the sidebar. For years, I’ve made jewelry- mostly for gifts. But in recent years, I’ve focused on jewelry as talisman- making pieces with qualities that I want to carry with me when performing; stones and colors that evoke, enrich, protect, draw, & celebrate. Since getting more requests to make pieces for others- I decided to make extra for this store. Of course, the same Muses that inspire my music and lyrics/poetry inspire my baubles too 😉
So my new online store is called Physalia Designs jewelry by TaraLinda. I will post later about the shop name and inspiration for the the banner. I’ve been active with the on-line Etsy site since early Summer discovering the giant community of artists, especially those making pendants and ribbon- things I can incorporate into my work. I really love supporting small businesses and independent artists in this economy, and Etsy is a great place to find gifts.
My designs change, but so far, pieces are colorful & chunky. Because of my own skin sensitivities, I use mostly sterling silver & gold vermeil. Also shibuichi and copper. Each piece is unique. I’ll be posting more adjustable lariats, chokers, & finer wire-wrapped pearl chains soon.
