Have you heard? EtsyMetal, my metalsmithing group on Etsy, has been sending out a newsletter for fans and friends (sign up here!). So when our editor, the very talented Danielle Miller-Gilliam of daniellejewelry on Etsy put out the call for some fashion illustration, I took the bait. In addition to her Etsy shop and all the volunteer work Danielle does to enrich the EtsyMetal team, she is a full time metal artist and designer, well known and highly regarded for her beautiful collections… found in galleries across the United States and beyond, as well as on her site. I was honored for the chance to lend this esteemed team member a hand. Here’s a bit of the
behind-the-scenes from my drawing board with a snippet of the completed art
as seen in Danielle’s e-mail at the end…
