Maggie Mae Beyeler of Magpie Pottery is based out of sunny Santa Fe, New Mexico. In each of her delicate creations there is a little of bit of that wonderful burnt sienna color so indicative of the southwest.
I particularly adore her buttons like this big 2 1/4" Indian embossed beauty in a cheerful green. Wouldn't this button make a neat focal point for a necklace or dramatic statement on a summer hand knitted sweater?
Magpie Pottery also features buttons that have images fired onto the surface with just a hint of glaze for color. Maggie mixes a wonderful old fashioned images with a modern button design.
If you already have enough crafting and beading supplies, you might indulge in a pair of cute earrings for spring. These birdies would be fun when dressing up for a day at the park or just strolling around the neighborhood.
Who wouldn't want some birds twittering in your ears?
Pear Noodle Bowl, Magpie Pottery: porcelain, toner, glaze
Magpie Pottery also has a beautiful collection of functional tableware that is super scrumptious. This Pear Noodle Bowl is my favorite. I'm imagining a wonderful steaming, hot bowl of Vietnamese pho that would be delish eaten out of this treasure!
