Happy New Year - 1st January Feature

Happy New Year Everyone!!! How were your holidays? Mine were great but I'm so glad to be done with all the craziness. This year I decided to take a look at other artists and creative people that I admire. I want to share their passion with you and hope that you will be inspired. As a bonus the artists I feature will be sharing a super uber secret coupon code for you to use in their store. Do you feel loved yet? Good.

Meet Sally-Ann. She is the creative genius behind Etsy Store The Navigatrix. Her store features Upcycled Steampunk creations and other Victorian inspired jewelery. I asked her what inspired her and why she started making Steampunk accessories. Here is what she had to say:

"I have a background as a professional modelmaker and began making costume and props for Live Roleplay, a favourite hobby. I began getting involved in Steampunk fairly recently, being introduced to it by a friend and by my brother Matt simultaneously, who both encouraged me to take my Steampunk costume creations further. My creative impulse has re-awakened and now I'm doing the cliche: making stuff on my dining room table out of bits and bobs and inspirations. Etsy taught me the verb 'to upcycle'; my materials come mostly from charity shops and family hoards!"

Her brother Matt has an Etsy Store as well, Arcane Armoury. The two of them work closely together to inspire each other and create one of a kind items. Both Sally-Ann and her brother are located in England and come from a creative family. Sally-Ann has a degree in model making from the University of Hertfordshire and enjoys being a mom.

If you would like to purchase any of Sally-Ann's lovely items you can find them in her Etsy Store and don't forget to use your special coupon code: BLOG15 for 15% off!
