Artisan Handmade Gift Ideas - Three for Thursday




I love this quote by Zac Posen, an American fashion designer, since it’s the way I feel about making artisan handmade items and buying artisan handmade items to gift to friends:  



I want to make things of quality. I'm a big believer in handmade, tactile, crafted pieces. I want to keep that tradition alive.



This week’s Three for Thursday blog feature three handmade artisan who definitely create things of quality and beauty.  The artists are: Kristi of Kristi Bowman Design who makes amazing components from precious metal clay for jewelry making; Roxanne of watercolorNmore who creates amazing original paintings, prints, note cards and other beauties; and, Sharon of BlondePeachJewelry who creates beautiful jewelry with an elegant, boho flair.  I hope you enjoy these choices and will browse the artists’ shops. BUY HANDMADE this year.
