[Italian Version]

I’ve always thought that there are crazy and ingenious minds inside the Etsy Italia Team, and this time they have confirmed it with this new initiative: Love Guerrilla!

All tou have to do is choose two Etsy Shop, an Italian one and a foreigner one, and promote them by all means and with all possible channels. The purpose: spreading love for handmade and sharing things and artists we love.

A wonderful, crazy initiative to which I could not participate!

And now, my “victims”!

Among the Italian artists, I chose Paola shop:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/atelierpompadour?ref=ss_profile

I think that paola is a wonderful artist. If you look her creations you have no doubts: this woman loves what she does. From the materials to the technical, from the subjects to the delicacy to the richness of the details, everything fits perfectly to create small masterpieces.

Mice are my favorite, but her whole shop is a real poem!

The other “victim” is Chris Kapono, an artist from St. Louis and this is her shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MandarinMoon?ref=pr_shop_more

Chris is an artist of polymer clay, with which she creates truly unique items.

The thing that fascinates me the most when I discovered her works is the way she treates the surfaces and the textures, incorporating objects, using pigments, combining together organic shapes and geometric forms.

Chris creates boxes, jewelry, decorations, ornaments … well, she  can actuallycarry her creativity in every area. For a lover of polymer clay, Chris is surely a source of inspiration and a model to aim for.

Hoping I’ve been able to share with you some of the admiration I feel for these artists, I invite you to visit their pages, their blogs and their shops.

Handmade is having a difficult time because the cost of materials has increased and the economical crisis does not allow us to buy all the things we like, but love is free, people! So, love, love, love, and share!
