1000 Markets A New Place to Visit

Yesterday, we visited some Artfire stores.
Today, our shopping trip will take us to 1000Markets and two stores in that selling venue.

The first store we will visit today is Island Top Glass Art.
Paula is the curator, artist, and owner of this fun shop!
(I'm only going to show you a couple of items from each of these stores, so when you finish reading this, do a bit of island hopping and visit 1000Markets to see some fabulous work from Paula and Sue.)

This beautiful necklace, and the beads in it, were made by Paula. Isn't it stunning! when I first saw this necklace, I thought of the ocean. I see the white sands and the soft, blue water of the sea!
This necklace and earrings set is called Pretty and Pink. Paula has so many wonderful pieces of wearable art in her shop, that I really had a difficult time deciding which pieces to choose. My philosophy then is, when in doubt choose pink!

Now, in this whirlwind tour of the two shops on 1000Markets that I like the best, we need to move on to Nine Dragons Sculpture Art owned, operated, and curated by Sue who is a multi talented artist.
Take a look at these two works of art.

This fabulous necklace is called Shimmer. Isn't it wonderful? You can see the shimmer of the beads in the necklace. Oh, my, it's right up my alley.
This is The Kiss.
Do I need to say more? I am struck by the beauty and the simplicity of this piece.

So, it was a short and quick tour of these two stores. Be sure to head over to 1000Markets for a more complete show of what Paula and Sue have to offer.
I'll sneak this in.
When you are there,
You can visit my store, too!
You know me, random and eclectic to the end!
I hope you enjoyed your tour!
