I love the goodness that Etsy has brought to the world, giving artisans an online storefront and lovers of handmade goodness a creative marketplace to peruse. I am an Etsy addict. So when my friend Heather, from the shop My Selvaged Life, approached me about doing a studio and headshot photo shoot for her shop, I knew I was the one for the job! I had found her jewelry shop years ago while searching Etsy for local Connecticut results. That is another beauty of the site. Not only can you purchase handmade items from anywhere on earth, but you can also shop specifically for local handmade or vintage goods. Perfection!

You have to take a look at the unique combinations Heather comes up with in her jewelry pieces. I always get compliments when I wear mine. Heather's studio is an inspiring and inviting place full of artwork, drawers of beads, and special vintage pieces. I wanted to sit down and start firing metal with her. Check out her shop to hear more about her creative process or do a little Valentine's day shopping. I'll be getting some of these for someone dear to my heart.

If you are an artist, blogger, or business owner in the Connecticut area and you're looking for modern headshots that capture the real you, please contact me. I am truly inspired working with fellow entrepreneurs.
