*Giveaway Has Ended*

I discovered this amazing artist, Laura Mazurek, on Etsy. She is a photographer. mulit-media artist. jewelry designer. Her shop is called Violet Bella and she has a variety of different products on her site. Her products include clothing, Accessories, Earrings, Necklaces, Rings, Bracelets, Photo Jewelery, Photography, Paintings, and Art.

Laura Mazurek started taking photographs, 13 years ago, when she was in her Freshman year of high school. For 6 months she has been an active member of the Etsy community.

Laura is a self-taught artist and her inspiration comes from what she sees in nature. Having grown up in the Hill Country in Texas she has learned to embrace and nurture the beauty of the surrounding hills. Both of her parents were dedicated to the arts so she naturally developed the love and appreciation for the arts herself.

After losing her mother, Linda Carrigan, creator and designer of Broken China Jewelery, to breast cancer in 2008, Laura has dedicated her life to arts and has been applying to her life those things her mother has taught her.

Laura recycles and finds new uses for old things. Her photography is very unique and different she uses lots of texture and has unique settings like a burned down building. Laura is available for both weddings and portraiture. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the etsy shop Violet Bella I would highly suggest you check out her unique and amazing work.
