Acrylicana

Unpacking one of my amazing packaged from Vivka last year I found one of Acryliana’s business cards inside among the goodies.  The next time I sat down I looked her up on Etsy and squeeeeeee’ed like crazy.

Acrylicana is run by Mary Winkler, whose illustrations are fun, bright, and infectious.  Her designs are kooky, and urban and I absolutely love her style.  Her drawings are clear and bright, her point of view obvious and whimsical.

She puts her designs on rings, barrettes, stationary, bags, necklaces, bracelets, and magnets.  All of which can be found in her Etsy shop.

I’ve ordered from her a few times.  Each order was well packaged and shipped quickly.  I really love her rings.  While I’ve bought a few, I’ve only kept two myself.  Her little pieces of jewelry make great one of a kind gifts.  Each time I’ve given one I was met with looks of astonishment and then lots of giggles.  Maybe my family is weird…

The little pieces she uses are really interestingly made.  The illustration is somehow printed on the back of the clear acrylic and then die cut around them.  The art isn’t glued so there is nothing to eventually peel off.  The die cut piece is them securely affixed to the finding, such as the ring base, or a barrette.  I see she’s got a few little charm bracelets now, as well, and the cupcake one is coming home with me.

You can follow her blog or keep up with her on Twitter.

Why yes, that is a TP and Poo themed magnet set.
