Hey, hey, Tuesday!  Thanksgiving is upon us and birds are on everyone’s brains (or tofurkies, or if you’re like my clan you’re thinking of a delicious brunch menu) but one person in particular, Sophia Sarno of Highwire Handmade, has birds on the brain all the time.  Hand painted, delicate little earrings, pendants, rings and more feature birds on wires, an iconic image familiar to everyone, everywhere… as long as the power lines are above ground.  Here are some goodies:

Birds on Wires Ring, $24 from Highwire Handmade

Hand Painted Stud Earrings, $35 from Highwire Handmade

Chevron Pendant, $32 from Highwire Handmade

Highwire Handmade will be sharing a space with IDILLARD, who makes painted home accessories with animals.  Stay tuned for a Vendor Spotlight on IDILLARD and start making your wish list now!

The Big Chill Arts, Crafts + Vintage Sale will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, 2011 at the Mayo Street Arts Center at 10 Mayo Street from 10am-4pm.  We look forward to seeing you there!

“One thing I learned at an early age from my Dad, was to look up when you walk. So I do. That’s when I find birds and wires, open skies, clouds and lots of inspiration.” –Sophia Sarno.

And isn’t that the truth?  The simple and striking designs from Highwire Handmade reflect this early training in such a universal way that her designs are timeless.  Pale sunsets with the stark, graphic outline of little birds on the line are something that everyone, everywhere can relate to.

When I asked Sophia what was new with her product line for Spring 2011 (and for all you lovely customers the day of The BIG THAW!) she said she’s been experimenting with plated and .925 sterling silver in her pendants.

The precious little paintings are available at Highwire Handmade’s online Etsy shop, but you can also pick up a piece of wearable art at The BIG THAW on Saturday, April 16th at Mayo Street Arts.  We’re so pleased that Sophia (and the other vendor sharing the table with her, Isabelle Dillard) heard about The THAW via the Etsy Maine Team online forum and decided to join us!
