We piece it together and somehow it works.
In fact, by piecing it together we are allowed to tap into multiple selves and get away from that awful thing called "specialization".
I prefer to celebrate and admire those who are boldly multi-talented- like this Vermonter, Dar Tavernier-Singer. She describes herself as an artist, graphic designer, chocolatier, magpie and bowerbird. She has two Etsy sites, both with a small but beautiful selection of handmade items. Below are a few of my favorites.
|Etched in water buffalo bone, this scrimshaw piece was made with waterproof sepia ink that was sealed with a beeswax resin, & strung on a delicate filigree copper chain with copper lobster clasp. By Dar on akimbaMade.|
|two initials etched side-by-side on one face of an oval disc, which spins to say "beloved" |
on the other, both in graceful script
|Imagine getting one of these necklaces in the mail. Delightful!|
|Flour sack cotton towels, hand printed with antique hand-carved Indian woodblock|
|Simple and Beautiful Hand Towels by Flo & Ella, named after Dar's Grandmothers|
