HAF Blog Ring Week Three
This week we feature two artists that are new to me. At first, I was wondering how to present one, Ananasa. I finally comprehended that Ananasa was a similar site to HAF, many different artists list their works, but as with our HAF, all are handmade. Based in the UAE (United Arab Emirates), this shop has very beautiful and unique offerings. As a jeweler, I will feature that genre. Enjoy.
The silver bracelets show fantastic metal work with a fantastic design. The ring is made with gold plated brass and the shank is adjustable to fit a variety of sizes.
The second shop is one of our own, Highland Princess Designs. Describing herself as a "nerd" caught my attention, as I am a semi-typical nerd of my generation (I still have and use a slide rule). She makes very beautiful Celtic chain and maille pieces. She got her start in this art while at a fair and saw a belly dance. Anyway, here are a couple pieces from her shop. The bracelet on the right captured by eye immediately when I visited her shop. Both illustrate quality.
As with all artists in the Handmade Artists Forum, the work is exquisite. Please visit these and all of our wonderful artists in the Shops at Handmade Artists.
