But, I'm excited about this week because we are officially on the countdown for the first Art in the Afternoon art walk series event taking place on April 3 in the Rail Arts District. Today's featured artist is Carolina Isea. Her simple, modern jewelry has become a quick favorite among locals and she keeps coming up with the most wonderfully crafted pieces. Her works in Decatur Gallery right now are absolutely exquisite using freshwater pearls, leather and silver, I can hardly stop trying them on! I hope you come out to experience her work for yourself, which is very reasonably priced. And I promise, if you own one of her pieces, you will wear it all the time!

A Venezuelan born soul, Isea lives in suburban Atlanta and is the mother of two children. She has been on a quest of creating handmade jewelry for nearly six years. With a BFA and jewelry making training in some areas including beading and silversmith, her wire wrapping and other jewelry skills are pretty much self-taught. The Hispanic and rich South American influence combined with other cultures influences contribute to her inspirations and designs. Her work also is inspired by the organic forms found in nature, new trends and the old style, and by the contrast between rough and smooth textures of natural materials.
