Earth Friendly Etsy – Lil Fish Studios: Brooch Giveaway

This week’s Earth Friendly Etsy giveaway will add a little style and class to your fall wardrobe. Isn’t it fun to add new pieces of jewelry into your collection during the changes in the season? Lil Fish Studios is a beautiful shop full of nature inspired home decor and accessories. Lil Fish Studios is located under the poplar and pine in rural Minnesota and was created by Lisa Jordan. Lisa is giving a lucky reader a birch bark and wool brooch. This brooch is handmade using felt that has been fitted into a frame that she made from birch bark. The birch bark was cut from a branch that had fallen in her yard. The back of the brooch is covered in felted garment wood. If I won this brooch, I would wear it everyday in the fall!

Lisa is drawn to natural materials, wool, wood and stone – but has a fondness for vintage buttons! Lisa uses only recycled or sustainable materials in all of her creations. Wool from sweaters and coats is turned into felt, buttons are snipped off thrifted garments and bark is harvested from the trees that fall in her woods. How lovely is that?

Lisa is inspired by nature – she literally lives in the middle of the woods, so she is surrounded by what inspires her to be creative everyday. Lisa lives about 30 miles from town, so she only shops a couple of times a month. She has a large veggie garden and a makeshift greenhouse – made from recycled materials. Lisa life is by definition: sustainable.

When Lisa isn’t creating beautiful pieces for her shop, you will find her watching her four children run wild in the sun, covered in mud and catching bugs and frogs. Or she may be snuggled up with one of the lovely animals on the Jordan Homestead. Lisa loves to cook, incorporating wild foods into the weekly menu and on a quiet Saturday morning, you may find her laying on her belly in the woods – taking photographs of moss and mushrooms.

Rush over to Lil Fish Studio and pick up something special for yourself or someone you love. Make sure to check out her lovely ornaments – wouldn’t they look adorable on the Christmas tree this year? And leave a comment to enter to win!

*You can also share on Facebook, Twitter, Technorati, Digg, Stumble Upon or Kirsty for another entry – just leave a seperate comment. I will pick a winner on November 3rd.
