***CONGRATULATIONS, Barbara (non-blogger)!!!***
My favorite item is the Chloe bracelet. Thanks for the great contest!
I love handcrafted items but am easily overwhelmed by the sheer volume of stuff available on sites like Etsy. It's fun to peruse all of the goodies for sale but I have lost countless hours clicking through so-so shops looking for something specific. It's easy to get fed up. The Pear Project is an online boutique featuring artisan goods that have been pared down (pun totally intended!) to the best and the brightest. Brooke Fuller's mission is to incorporate artisan goods into everyday life. She founded The Pear Project to showcase her own artwork, like the Car in Blue manipulated Polaroid SX-70 print below, and that of other artisans.
My favorite items at The Pear Project are the letterpress coasters by Minneapolis artist Krista Stout. I don't really use coasters at home much but these would look fabulous framed or nestled in a shadowbox, too! The Drinking Girls set is especially great:
The Pear Project also has a great selection of handmade jewelry, all at very reasonable prices, ranging from $6 to $85. I really like the Fotini Designs pieces, which have a very classical style reminiscent of long-lost treasures. The Abbey necklace looks like it could have been snatched from the Little Mermaid's jewelry box…
