Themed Nomination – Being Unique

There is  nothing like handmade if you’re looking for something unique or unusual. I am constantly amazed and inspired by the incredible variety of styles, shapes, color combinations and personal expression in items which have been made by hand. One of the qualities I admire most is authenticity.  It is a wonderful thing to be able to share through seeing and feeling something of the maker’s unique personal experience of the world.

“A work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament.”

Oscar Wilde

“these little mementos are called ‘medallions of authenticity’

they are little reminders of your true self.

you are real and good.”
