Ten Percent off Everything on Mondays

We could have a long and complicated conversation about why 10 percent and not 12 percent of 8 percent. Frankly, I don’t know the answer.

What’s important about 10 percent?

First, it’s an easy-to-remember number.

Second, it is a significant discount.

Third, art from the Art Shoppe is original and unique, and all made by Minnesota artists and we want to share it with you.  Here is a selection:

Allie Hafez Wearable Art: New Work

Some New Allie Hafez work in The Art Shoppe

Award-winning jewelry artist Allie Hafez’ work is branded OTIWA, which correctly stands for “Oh. That’s Interesting Wearable Art.” Some of her new work is now in the Art Shoppe.

Testing My Balance: brand new piece

She fell in love with the matte finish of this slab of red creek jasper. She writes,  “I didn’t want to use it predictably as a pendant. So I decided to make it the focal of an asymmetrical bracelet that can be attached to a necklace with similar components to make a longer and more interesting necklace.”

Noting its spiritual and metaphysical properties, she writes “Jasper is associated with
protection, nurturing, joy, awareness, relaxation, tranquility, wholeness, astral travel, Yin/Yang. It is said to calm a troubled mind.”

Laser Flash has a compelling story, fully told in Allie’s blog. She explains how she found the central pendant and the graciousness of its makers to her notion of incorporating it into a necklace.

She shares the spiritual and metaphysical properties of the piece: “Labradorite is said to promote clarity and insight into one’s destiny. It is thought to be especially
helpful for recalling dreams and relating dreams to daily life. It has
a connection to love. It helps strengthen the will and one’s inner
strength and convictions. It’s believed to aid in combating addictions.”

You Got Me, Copper

“You Got me, Copper;” how it came to be

After several discarded ideas about how to use the chunk of melted copper, I realized I’d found a use for a length of beaded rope that I’d gotten bored with doing. I’d abandoned it when it was too short to be a bracelet; but it turned out to be perfect for creating a decorative bail that would turn the copper piece into an interesting pendant.
