Feature Artist March 14-20: Baublezptoa

This week's HAFteam artist is truely one of a kind! Carmen Trueheart runs Baublezptoa on both etsy and artfire. She's got a couple of blogs (Mooaany alias BananaMiranda and Mooaany Says) that feature many of her pieces as well as several of her animal companions, including the imortalized Poppyseed, done by another artist, SmellyRhino. Carmen specializes in Precious Metal Clay (PMC) and has even gotten her certification in this medium, however her skills are not limited to PMC, she is also a very accomplished lampworker, beader and silversmith. I'm so impressed by the level of craftmanship that she puts into every piece. It was so hard to choose just a few items to highlight but they are shown below. Please take time to visit Carmen's shop and if you purchase something know that 20-30% of the purchase is going to help animals at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah.
