THE WONDERS OF ETSY: Netamir's Bobilina Studio

It's suppose to rain today, but it is icing instead....can't go anywhere so I sat down at the computer and starting "traveling" through Etsy again. Look what I found!

Netamir's Bobilina Studio. Now if you know me you know my love for birds and my obsession for Mary Jane Shoes...and Netamir has a shop that has both and some other loving items.

To best describe the shop, I thought the artist's own words would be the best.

"My work combines the disciplines of traditional textile crafts with the visual arts; sculpture, painting and photography.
After graduating from my fashion design studies in 2003 (Shenkar Institute of Design) and following several years of work in commercial clothing companies I decided, in 2005, to devote myself to a more creative and artistic work-path.
At first I created crochet dolls and sold them to collectors via ETSY. The creation of textile dolls then extended itself to installation where these dolls were part of a space that I formed. My installations are a grouping of the dolls, objects made of textile as well as photography.
I am also still developing in the craft and design front, designing and creating collectible dolls as well as slippers shoes handbags and accessories;
My accessories collection began after people who saw my dolls on the Internet admired and “envied” the unique style I fashioned for my characters and requested I create these in full scale for their use. This is how I started my accessory collection. All these are hand made, and are each a singular blend of sewing, embroidery and crochet."

Here are some picks of Netamir's work which can be found on her etsy shop (a direct link to Netamir's etsy shop is in my MUST SEE ETSY SHOPS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THIS PAGE, SCROLL DOWN):

Hi Leslie
Thank you so much for the featuring!
It looks great and I am so glad that you like my birds.
Hope it will get warm at your place, here it is raining and cold too.
