DIY Process: How Do Etsy Artisans Make Their Stuff? (Video Series)
Harvesting wood for sustainable wooden jewelry by PrasseinDesigns (Video produced by Eric Beug)
Our friends at Etsy, the delightful blog and online market for everything handmade and do-it-yourself crafts, clued us in on an inspiring new video series called Process, which gives a glimpse on why artists featured on the website do what they do and how. The latest episodes feature Loran Scruggs, who creates whimsical tin toys out of recovered scraps of metal, bottle caps and packaging; and Shawn, the woman behind Prassein Designs, who makes wooden jewelery from wood sourced from shipping palettes found behind Seattle-based Ecohaus store. With this new series going directly behind the scenes, it gives one all the more reason to support your local do-it-yourself crafter or artist.
