I saw this absolutely fantastic necklace on Flickr and immediately thought that I wanted it so bad. I absolutely loved the design. So I wrote to the artist asking if this necklace was available. She replied to me saying that it is in fact available and she would love to do a trade. "Perfect..." I thought, I couldn't thought of a better idea. The trade was in my head too, I just wasn't sure if that's appropriate to ask. And she happens to live in Austin, TX (I'm in Houston,TX), small world...it's almost like shopping local. She wanted me to make a Nuno Felted scarf for her daughter in pastel green/blue/lavender colours. So I went with lavender, I thought it's perfect for a teenager who probably wears jeans all the time ( I might be wrong here...). It was a perfect trade, my first ever. So, if you ever see something that you like, don't hesitate to ask if the artist is willing to do a trade with you. He/she might agree or not, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Visit Randee's Etsy shop for more of her beautiful work.
