BESTeam Feature :: LotusMira

How does a graduate student, earning both a law degree (JD) and masters (MA) balance both school, being a wife, mother to 3 cats and still have time to create beautiful items to sell on Etsy?! LotusMira has found that balance with her gorgeous soldered works which incorporate her love of vintage imagery, found items, and ephemera.

Be sure to head over to her shop before October 31st as she currently is having a Samhain/Halloween sale (her favorite Sabbat): Buy one item at full prive and get the next item 10% off, and any more items15% off each (least expensive items will be discounted).

Get in the Halloween spirit with this Burton-esque Soldered Collage. Inspired by Tim Burton's stop-motion films, this collage was made with four panes of glass, each with a different image floated between them creating a dimensional effect where each image casts a shadow on the images below.

Anyone that knows me, knows that I am borderline obsessed with butterflies so this instantly caught my eye. This Vintage Malaysian Stamp Soldered Pendant is a favorite of mine.

There is such beauty in these Broken China Beaded Earrings. I can see these being very versatile...wear them to a formal event or as an everyday statement piece. Either way, I am sure these would be the envy of all your friends :)

Be sure to check out these and all of the other awesome pieces in LotusMira's shop. Also, don't forget to visit her blog and become a follower...there will be a free giveaway when her blog hits 75 followers!!
