Today, I am doubly happy to showcase the excellent work of this etsy seller.
First of all, the wall wears by Neawear are beautiful. They are cross-stitch and embroidery pieces, framed in embroidery hoops (wooden new, vintage metal and wood).
The artist own patterns mixes fresh illustrations with old charms. Like many, I enjoy their modern simplicity. Janick’s wall wears are doing well on Etsy.
About the Creator
Secondly, Janick is one of my Web2.0 friends from Montreal. I say a Web2.0 friend since Janick and I interact exclusively through Web communities until now. We almost met once at a Creacamp.
Earlier this month, as I checked Janick’s Flickr photostream, I spot her wall wear. Then, I noticed a big announcement. Janick is taking the plunge and will work full-time on her crafting business.
Janick was a graphic designer. We met through blogging. She makes jewelry under the Nea Jewelry brand. She operates two Etsy shops. Neawear is her jewelry and wall wear shop. You can buy craft supplies at neablossoms.
Janick’s story is typical of many women who are realizing their dreams because of the Internet. You can find in the women blogosphere many inspiring stories.
I Love Etsy
I do not do craft projects. But I enjoy buying handmade stuff on Etsy. As a consumer, I get access to unique products that I could not find otherwise. I often talk about Etsy to people I met. Imagine, I am not even a seller.
It is easy to forget that Etsy created a marketplace for so many artists. Etsy defines its mission as:
.to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.
In case of Neawear and so many more Etsy sellers, I vouch that they achieved their goal.
Wall Wear Collections
So far, Janick developed three series: Taxidermy, Twirlies and Flora. Janick accepts requests for custom initial embroidered wall wear. Neawear’s creations make original housewarming gift.
