THE TEAM -DUST TEAM PART I

I wanted to write a feature on our Australian Etsy Team -the DUST team(down under street team) for quite a while now, so here it finally is!
We have LOOOTS of talented and great women in our team and im very happy to be part of it! Yay, thanks!
My first feature is going to be on Michelle and the name of her shop is thingomatic.


She makes beautiful, modern and elegant jewellery which has a very natural feel to it and her pieces look just like something a modern day mermaid would wear.
She uses such beautiful and natural materials as wood, quartz, crystal, freshwater pearls, hematite and glass, which make her pieces look like they got swept onto a beach and water, sand and driftwood come to mind.


I think she has a very good eye, for the mix of materials she uses and knows exactly which of them go best together so her pieces look very clean and have an interesting simplicity about them. They acctually remind me of the elements, air, water, fire, earth and wind.

Michelle is very new to the team, but her jewellery, the presentation and pictures of it are just outstanding in my opinion and besides that she is a very friendly and helpful person!


Thanks for being part of the team, Michelle!


And you please make sure to check out her shop to see more of her awesome work at thingomatic.etsy.com!:)

Thanks!
