The Grand Opening of Queen of Arts Studio

(cool logo, n'est pas ? )

Yes, it is now official ! The Queen of Arts Studio Etsy Shop is now open for business !

With lots of help and support from my wonderful husband David (aka Super Computer Geek), I have photographed, described and priced some of my wares for you to peruse !

Right now I have two types of things in my shop. One is my hand painted and collaged bamboo tile necklaces. Each one of these is one of a kind. Here are a couple of examples:



I also have my fun and funky square glass magnets for sale. These would make great little hostess gifts or gift exchange gifts for the holidays. All the designs are my own, most of them from little inchie drawings I made on my own painted papers. Here are a couple of my favorites :

I have been selling my art pieces and my jewelry mostly by word of mouth for the last few years and have also been lucky enough to get a bigger contracts for commissioned pieces here and there. I am really excited though, to open a storefront of my very own and see where the journey takes me.

In the next little while, I hope to add some hand painted wooden Christmas ornaments to the shop as well as some note cards with prints of some of my journal pages on them , all of them with my own "Queen of Arts" style to them.

***Grand Opening Special ***

As a grand opening special, from now until November 15th, I will be offering free shipping for any necklace purchased from the Queen of Arts Studio Etsy Shop. I will also include a few of my little "Rock My World" rocks and a copy of the card describing the project in all necklace packages. That's my way of spreading a little more love around and to share my excitement about my new venture with you !

Wish me luck ! Go, Queen, go !

Kim, I absolutely adore your work! It is so whimsical and fantastic! I had come across your page the other day in some roundabout way (through comments somewhere? or someone's blogroll) and headed right over to your Etsy shop and promptly "favorited" it.

Thanks for coming visiting my blog and for your comments. That Philip K. Dick quote is perfect for that piece! xoxo Serena
