crochet & leather clip

ah, the magic of the crafting community. you do a show, you meet some cool people, you keep seeing them around, you scheme together…and next thing you know you’ve offered to help them get their etsy store up and running. {because that was a steep learning curve and shouldn’t someone else benefit from all that?!}

crochet bracelets

fast forward to today: i’m pleased as punch to call lisa & justin of lint & buttons my friends. of course they make the most beautiful things, as you can see here, but they are also lovely people.

today we spent several pleasant hours doing a photo shoot so that they can set up their etsy store with pretty photos. they’ve been doing fabulously at local craft fairs and at our town’s art walk, but i’m so glad that the rest of the world will get to know them now, too. their stuff is really just that good.

lisa is the woman behind the fibers, crocheting any number of beautiful items. she makes hair bands, she makes bracelets, she made me the most wonderful infinity scarf. {and generous? she gave me a hat. just because.}

justin is the man behind the leather work; carving, cutting, and stitching together some serious finery. he’s got a background in saddle repair, so not only is the stuff he makes gorgeous, it’s also really well made. {he’s quite a catch, too.}

leather earrings and bracelet

they’ve got their aesthetic down, using mainly mainly natural materials {leather, cotton, wool} and a carefully chosen color palette of natural hues. for our backdrops, we used the containers they brought their lovelies in: a vintage cigar box, a wooden box with a lovely detail, and an old briefcase. they so have their act together.

in other words, it was a pleasure to sweat away under the halogen lamps that power my light box on a saturday afternoon. if you met them, you would understand. {they even bought me some yummy thai food for lunch!}

{customizable} tag necklace

tomorrow i’ll show you my personal stash of lint & button goodies. there’s that scarf i told you about, as well as a great belt by justin. and then there’s the cuff, the necklace, the hat, the flower…seriously, i’m addicted. stay tuned and prepare to be jealous. but don’t worry, you’ll be able to get  your hands on your own goodies soon. until then, visit their facebook page and become a fan for updates.
