muted collection now speaking softly on Etsy

The title of this collection may be muted but the artists deserve a louder shout-out.

I'm fond of this New York Art Print in watercolor, Empire State, architectural sketch which is offered by Suhita Shirodkar through her shop SketchAway. It has a nice loose colorful style that animates the Manhattan skyline. You can also follow her collection on Flickr.

I also was drawn to this fuzzy felted bluish grey wool bowl with shades of blue flowers offered by sharon through her shop thefuzzymonkey. She has a lot more of these felted colorful wonders with all kinds of words, hearts, and other decorations.

The featured item in this collection is this dusty teal and grey turks head knot sailor rope bracelet small which is the simple classic three part braid made with a subtle teal blue and grey cotton cord. These colors are achieved using an unbleached cotton cord in a dilute dye bath. No two batches ever seem to come out the same making these pieces real limited editions. See more of these blended colors in my Etsy shop and an expanded selection of blended colors in my Zibbet shop.
