Once in awhile you find something rare & special on Etsy. The Still Tree boutique is so fun, fresh & unique. I know Sal, who is the creative mind behind the shop, through Twitter and have become a huge fan of hers. Not only does she call her ‘Mom’ Mum (LOVE IT!) but she’s well traveled and loves using color in her designs. Pssttt… Sal… have you heard of the Crafting in Color Street team??
Here’s her inspired bio:
“I’ve loved making things from an early age when my Mum taught me dress-making and how to knit and have always had little projects on the go, but Still Tree actually came about from a baking hot afternoon in the Northern Thai mountains and a bumpy trip on the back of a moped… My boyfriend and I were exploring some paddy fields and as we came along a dirt track in the middle of nowhere I noticed loads of beautiful iridescent blue feathers littering the road. They came from an Indian Roller bird, who had clearly met its match with another animal. I spent a while collecting them and on cleaning them when we got home I realised they would make for stunning earrings. And so came Still Tree. Etsy’s the perfect market place as it enables us to run a business from anywhere in the world. We’re back in the UK for the moment and have been trading for just over a year and we’re growing well; we’re not just about the feather earrings now either, we make lots of other jewellery, accessories and home-wares and have a great new product line on the way, which should be released in the next month or so, so keep a look out for exciting things!”
I can’t wait to see what you are up to!
