Introducing Charmed By Nature! Today's CityCraft Handmade Holiday Happy Hour Featured Artist.

I’m pleased to introduce you to today’s featured CityCraft artist - Charmed By Nature!

Lynne Kropinak of Charmed By Nature, handcrafts engaging & whimsical jewelry inspired by nature. Lynne incorporates “real” nature into her works, using real leaves pressed into polymer clay to make her leaf beads & pendants. She also uses various flea market finds & semi precious stones to create what she describes as “jewelry with a sense of humor” reflecting “a love of nature & fun.” Lynne often hand paints her polymer pendants & beads & has recently added the art of silver metal clay to her repertoire.

Lynne is also an avid knitter & has begun having what she describes as “a love affair with colorful, fuzzy & oh-so-touchable yarn.” She has recently opened a second Etsy shop, Back to the Garden that offers “snuggly giftables” made from gorgeously colored, thick soft wools.

Lynne is an active & important member of the Etsy Pittsburgh Team. She enjoys participating in the numerous Team craft demonstration events & often hosts 'craft nights' in her lovely home.

Come to Navarra on December 18th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm to shop local, shop handmade, and see Charmed By Nature along with numerous other talented artisans.
