Even the most non-material person on the planet has had the experience at some point in life of drooling over a car, gadget, piece of clothing, or art that is way beyond their budget. I remember that when I was a young college student "window shopping" was pretty much the only type of shopping I ever took part in. This morning I went over to Etsy to see what was new in mosaics. I typed in my search term "mosaic" and then selected the "high to low" option so that it would deliver the results with the most expensive price tag first ... WOW, I was not disappointed in what I found.
Check out these funky and original works by Betsy Youngquist. Betsy's work has been included in several Museum shows in both the US and Sweden. Her profile states: "Stemming from a life-long love of all creatures great and small, Betsy’s work weaves together the human and animal spirit through a surrealistic lens." Her elaboratly beaded creations range in price from a very approachable $75 on up to $11,400 for my favorite piece "Otto". Betsy's work can be found over at Etsy and also on her own very attractive site "Byart.com".
