Etsy Treasury of Natural Father's Day Gifts, by Hand Painted Petals

A Father's Day Treasury of gift giving has been created by Hand Painted Petals and a group of 16 chosen artists each featuring an item that would make any Father happy on his special day!

Sheryl chose two necklaces, one being “Fang,” a dude's necklace and the other from Etsy’s jennyhoople “Chocolate Surf,” both looking like they were made with the water-borne surf-rider in mind, OK a big handsome dude that surfs, and walks out of the ocean carrying his board and all dripping wet…

Along with Fang and Chocolate Surf, Sheryl has added an assortment of items, from a key holder, to a briefcase, a clock, wallet, shaving soap, pet grooming items, some art work, scarves (one of which I crave to be mine), and even some chocolates. So be sure to visit or steer the guy in your life, towards this Treasury and take note of where their eyes linger, so you can get an early start on your Father’s day gift list. Just click the image of the Sheryl's Treasury and you will be whisked right to her Treasury, but don't for get to come back for more fun information here at wiresNpliers.

About Hand Painted Petals:

Sheryl is a Floral Artist, and embarked upon this career when she had a need to release her creative energy, discovering the lines, the curves and aspects of flowers; with the rose being one of her chosen species that you will see in her artwork. One off my favorite roses Sheryl has painted on these goblets I love the way they look. But my ultimate favorite item is her shop, are these lovely Calla Lily champagne flutes. I am sure you’ll agree, I get refreshed just looking at them!

At Sheryl’s shop you will find beautiful hand painted stemware and more. Keepsakes, jewelry and hat boxes, even flower pots and greeting cards, all in hand painted beauty.

ArtFire Collection "Ombre Influence" by Swank!

Today a well known ArtFire artist created a Collection called Ombre Influence, and one of my items was chosen (among other artists) to be featured in her lovely Collection. Swank was the creator of this Collection. She has birdnest jewelry, boot wraps, and she does amazing wire wrapping (check out her bangles), too.

In Swank's Bio, she says:
"Some of the styles are celebrity favorites and my re-make version of things you see coming down the runway. I take those styles and adapt them into jewelry that the average person can wear everyday. This studio is dedicated just to those styles - and they are for every age."

Swank is edgy and loves the styles she sees emerging in the world of fashion, So check out her shop for some fun browsing and shopping.

For her Collection, from my shop she chose my Juice Earrings. Juice earrings are extremely lightweight in a vine style motif, running the spectrum from blue through green to yellow, in Swarovski Crystal Elements. With vines in black the leaves of these vines have a range of cool shades, and these earrings are long and have handmade round ear wires, in black.
They also come in a warm spectrum, too:
Many thanks to Swank and her lovely Collection at ArtFire! Check it out! Just click the above image of the Collection and you will be whisked away on my magic carpet to the Collection!
