Each hand-crafted piece gives a different visual experience – whether crafted with sterling silver, gold, copper, or art wires. Materials used may include silk ribbons, macramé, and synthetic beading string. Strung objects range from semi-precious stones, to hand blown glass, faceted glass to vintage buttons.
Each piece captures a different mood and color palette.
Customer Critters By Deb - Unique, Hndcrafted Ceramics - ORDER BY DEC 1
A self-described animal nut, teaching artist Debbie Limoli displays her art at galleries and shows across the Northeast. The works are called “CustomCrittersByDeb” as her work displays her passion for all creatures of nature. Her best ability for her self-taught art is to place personality and soul into each piece and make them affordable, handmade and one of a kind. Her hands crave clay!
As Debbie will be traveling in December, please order by December 1 to ensure delivery for the holidays.

For the original collages, Laura uses only glue and paper torn from magazines and old books. She does not use any paint, ink or digital manipulation; even the different shades of the book pages are due to the natural yellowing of the pages. Most of the pieces of paper are torn by hand, and the larger collages use hundreds of tiny scraps.

Parvathi Kumar Photography ~ Fine Art & Commercial Photography
Rather than taking photographs, I am usually taken by what I see, and only then try to uniquely capture and share the vision of my mind’s eye. My subject types range and may be located in various corners of the world, but in all cases I look for unusual perspectives and position my lens with care such that a strong composition emerges.
