Getting to Know...Snapcrafty
It's a beautiful spring day today in Montreal, it's Friday, I've been drawing all day, and it's basically a fantabulous, great flowery day. What a perfect time to show you all the spring goodness that is Snapcrafty!
Snapcrafty jewelry is created from precious gems, glass, vintage lucite, plastic, and brass, copper, pewter, gunmetal, silver ox, gold, and sterling findings to create simple designs with unique contrasts, textures and colorplay. This wonderful line of delicate yet fun jewelry is made by a fabulous crafter/designer named Sandra.
Sandra studies chromosomes by day and dreams up crafts at night. Her shop, Snapcrafty.com, has just had it's first anniversary and has grown from selling fiber art to innovative jewelry and hair accessories made from thrifted vintage components and handscreened patches all incorporating elements of nature and science. Her designs have been featured in U.K.'s online magazine N.E.E.T. and can be seen in an upcoming issue of Vogue's Knit1 magazine. She lives in Michigan with her boyfriend and laborador retriever.
Snapcrafty is one of the newest members of the Headquarters family! We love her stuff, and can't wait to see you try it on and fall in love!
