Two on Tuesdays...Mercy with Magic

Who: Samantha Vrij of Bewittched/Slow Water Studio
What: Jewelry, glass and sculpture
Where: Puhoi, New Zealand
Web: http://www.slowwaterstudio.com/ http://www.etsy.com/shop/bewittched http://www.etsy.com/shop/SlowWaterStudio
Why: Delicate pate de verre glass castings are her forte, but vegan artist Samantha Vrij also does fabulous garden sculptures and wind chimes as well as fun and playful gothic-inspired jewelry. Her poesy rings can be stacked and set with gems such as Moonstone and Amethyst, and her earrings, lockets and locket rings are easily wearable and eye-catching. She has a real feel for 3D forms and puts it to good use in conjuring her beautifully "bewittching" pieces.

Who: Rachel Anderson of Two Silver Stars
What: Prints, cards, jewelry and gifts
Where: Ithaca, NY
Web: http://www.etsy.com/shop/twosilverstars
Why: Supertalented Rachel is an accomplished artist, illustrating in a style reminiscent of Pre-Raphaelites like Dante Gabriel Rossetti and modern artists like Brian Froud. She brings lush vivid color to life in her dreamy pendants, prints and gifts, all created with eco- and animal-friendly ideals in mind. Her profound love and respect for nature and all the magical beauty found in it are woven throughout her work. Irresistible, ethical and enchanting.
