Cuteness Counts

Textile artist and illustrator Nicole Bowen has recalibrated the charts of cuteness with her latest batch of soft sculptures and jewelry...

Her work begins as illustrations...she is incessantly sketching in her books...Then, her characters come to life in wool, vintage and found fabrics, a myriad of old textiles and an odd array of trims and findings.

Here's a peek at her studio...many of you saw more of her workspace in Issue #4 of Where Women Create (the one with Mary Engelbreit on the cover...) It's a happy place chock full of her collected wonders and a cache of funky supplies.

It's there that she works to create the soft sculptures and jewelry she calls "Necessary Excess". These are some of her latest design...yes, they are cute to the max -- I especially love her new one of a kind illustrated necklaces...

Thanks as ever Nick, for allowing Earth Angels to be your exclusive retailer, and even more, many adventure-filled thanks for being my favorite travel gal pal and a great, true friend.

xxoo Jen
