Featured Artist. Anne Toprak of PlumCreek22 on Etsy

I'm happy to share with you the work of Anne Toprak of PlumCreek22 on Etsy.

Anne creates unique hairpins out of vintage glass and lucite cabochons.

I like what Anne is doing with the vintage cabochons, since it is a wonderful blend of vintage materials with a contemporary spin. Her designs really highlight the beauty of the old glass and the vintage lucite. They are both playful and romantic.

I learned of Anne's work after she purchased some of my vintage glass cabochons from Bumbershoot Supplies, and then introduced herself and her shop to me. It is worth a trip to PlumCreek22 just to see Anne's shop banner, which features a stunning photograph of plum blossoms.  

Plus, as a customer and as a seller, Anne is unfailing pleasant and friendly.  It's always a pleasure to have her visit my shop, and to visit hers.
