Maker Monday 002: Little Paper Crane

Again, I'm telling you about someone I met way too late in my stay in Virginia. Anita is one of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure of meeting in a while. It took a little bit for us to finally meet up, but boy I'm glad we did. On a cold and rainy afternoon Anita invited me over to her home to snap some photos of her working. We sipped coffee, talked about Instagram, and I even got to meet her sweet daughter Eleanor. I was SO beside myself while processing the photos of our visit. It was sort of this photographer dream I had come to life: to photograph jewelry and succulents and critter skulls and big dogs and a cute baby and a maker all in one fell swoop! Anita makes jewelry out of metals using the coolest tools. My Little Paper Crane necklace is one of my favorites and it works its way into my wardrobe all the time. She's a real talent. Anita sells jewelry in her etsy shop and also at Pastiche at Main in Downtown Lynchburg, VA.
