Star SunFlower Studio Artist Feature and Giveaway! CLOSED

i am pleased to announce Su Smith as my featured artist!

Su is a long time friend, and inspiration. She is the one who first introduced me to peyote stitch bead work, and inspired me to really get into sewing and marble/stone wrapping beadwork.
Su made many of my all time favorite dresses (tha
t i still own!) Her work is incredibly detailed, high quality and beautifully made.


Su is into all things crafty! She has been beading and sewing as a profession since 1993. It all intensified when her roommate asked her to go on Dead tour and guerilla vend with her on Shakedown Street.
Su has also vended at several Michigan music festivals including Bliss, Farm Fest, Blues Sunday and Spirit Of The Woods.

"I’m inspired by planting seeds and singing songs, local wild edibles and medicinals, bottles, trash, dryer lint and sometimes cat tail fuzz for stuffing, jars, twigs, sticks, marbles, beads, scrap copper electrical wire, gemstones, sacred geometry, spiritual endeavors, being a busy bee, community cooking fires, pot lucks, drum circles, and the pheonix rising up from the fire to the luminous lovelight of the One."




"One of my passions is to utilize things that the masses typically throw away and turn these disrespected items into useful, respected functional artwork."




Want it? You can purchase Su's work here and here.


Win it! On to the Giveaway!!
