Etsy Featured Shop: Sparkflight

Sparkflight is the Etsy shop of mother and son duo Ruth and Trevor Jensen of Minnesota. Both mother and son have a long history of creative endeavors--Ruth drew, painted, and carved wood from childhood, while Trevor "has been drawing since he could hold a pencil." Aside from his work on Etsy, Trevor has also recently illustrated a children's book. The pair began selling their work when they opened their Etsy shop in August of 2007. Sparkflight offers Ruth's wire sculptures and occasional jewelry, as well as Trevor's illustration work.

Ruth says that some of the best sellers at Sparkflight are her wire bird sculptures. Both Ruth and Trevor both enjoy doing custom work "because the personal interaction adds so much challenge and satisfaction to the process." To see more of their work, visit their MySpace page, click on "Pics" and then on "Sparkflight Wireworks."
