As an artist myself, I always feel most inspired while looking at other’s artwork. Luckily, because I run an exhibition site, papernstitch, I am surrounded by beauty everyday. Papernstitch is a site that was started to help promote artists and makers gain some much-deserved exposure. We are now entering our second exhibition, and all of the artists in this round-up can also be found on the papernstitch site. I hope some of these works inspire you as they have me.
Today it's all about texture, with these fabulous finds! I would love to have any one of these pieces for myself (especially that sea urchin ring) but each of these textured goodies would make for a delightful gift for that someone special as well.
Amy from Studio Morphologie makes artfully simple (yet complex) jewelry that pairs modern shapes and forms with organic thread detailing. The results are stunning. Certainly anyone on your holiday list would be lucky to receive one of Amy’s handmade pieces, especially an artsy but sophisticated friend or family member.

Recently, while searching for cards and stationery for the upcoming holidays, I stumbled on the Mrs Eliot Books shop. There are pages and pages of goodies, including prints, cards, even handmade, wooden books. So cool. I picked a couple of my favorites, and I especially love the pattern in the bowls writing set.
