Meet Gretchen of Mimi-Toria’s Designs. Gretchen popped into the i-Studio a few weeks ago to share with all of us her exciting dream come true - selling her wares at the fantastic event- Junk Bonanza.. Oh how fabulous that show must have been! Her article was very inspirational.. and so exciting!
'Gretchen is a designer that is actively using vintage, found treasures and special new elements to design and create beautiful functional art. This may be in the form of jewelry for you to wear or art for decorating your home. Gretchen lovingly recreates with the idea of making something that was once tossed aside, now into something loved, worn again or used again and once more treasured. Recycle, Reuse, Recreate.'
I fell instantly in love with Gretchen's Art. I love the mix of old and new. I hope to one day get up close and personal with her amazing creations. I'd love to photograph her jewelry. 'sigh'
I’m so happy to announce that Gretchen is going to be a regular contributor at the i-Studio.
I wanted to feature a few of her beautiful creations today. Gretchen allowed me to play a bit with her photos.
I added a few adjustment layers and textures just to ‘spruce’ up the images of her beautiful ART. Thank you Gretchen, for sharing your photos with me.
OH my, how I love all the beautiful forms that Gretchen displays her jewelry on. They too are ART.
Gretchen's mix of old and new really is so BRILLIANT.
You can visit Gretchen online at her site, Mimi-Toria’s Designs.
And watch for Gretchen’s next post at the i-Studio, later this week. Welcome to the i-Studio Gretchen.
Happiest week… to all …. Here’s to oodles of inspiration.
