LouTaylorStudio on Etsy


Seriously?  Seriously. ❤

Yes, it’s another UK-based company and yes, it’s another retro plastic jewelry maker, I CAN’T HELP MYSELF.  The explosion of goodness will not go unreported on this blog and LouTaylorStudio is the latest in creative genius, using a laser cutter to create whimsical and detailed jewelry in distinctive vintage shapes.  The Carmen Miranda alone warranted a post.

From her Etsy page, it looks like Lou Taylor got her start in paper, which you can also purchase some of her paper creations on Etsy:

“I create striking papercuts full of colour, pattern and intricate detail. Prints are available of my work, and are high-quality giclee prints made by a local printers called Stampa.

I am inspired daily by colour, pattern and often vintage fashion illustrations from the 50s and 60s and I have a real affection for Vogue and Harpers Bazaar covers from the 20s. I love to use unusual motifs in my work such as thermos flasks, spider plants and flamingoes as I believe they are very evocative and iconic.

I recently translated my ideas into acrylic jewellery and now have a wide range of colourful striking designs that I hope have a similar feel to my artwork.”

She also notes that bags will be coming to the shop next (!!!) and I see the scarves she predicted have made it to the shop.  Here are my favorites from the Etsy shop.
