A few weeks back, as part of the Miss Match project i was par of this triptych with Helene Smith & Violet Bella. Both amazing photographers but from here i somehow stumbled across Violet Bella's blog & did i discover there is so much more to her.

I am constantly in awe of people who are talented at a range of things ... me i can take pretty pictures but that's about it (although i want to learn many many other arts), but etsy is full of artists who can work across all kinds of mediums producing textiles, jewelry, paintings & much much more. Here is one such person & through her blog you learn so much more about her. Oh & i should probably mention she has amazing style too (go figure right).
To me it seems that everything she has to offer in both her shops is incredible unique & i imagine totally her. She loves to reuse items, & everything has this wonderful whimsical quality to it, not to mention one of a kind. The ideas, the time & the imagination that much go into all that she produces (not to mention the skill) are something else. It's a wonderful ability to take someone else's "trash" & turn it into something new & pretty & shiny, & Violet Bella definately has it.
So moving on from her clothing & jewelry to her photography & wow is it breath taking! The detail that goes into pictures is wonderful, from the tiny things you see out of the corner of your eye to the focal points that catch your attention immediately. I always admire those who can take photography to the next level, produce images particular self portraits that draw you as the viewer in.
Oh & this is my favourite ... so unique, simple & styalish. I am always looking for new ways to show off my photography, & there are so many options available especially as far as jewelry is concerned but this is totally different, full of gorgeous colours & then there is off course the stunning photographs on display. Oh & naturally she will custom make then using your favourite photographs from her shop.
