Etsy Shop of the Month: Lou Taylor Studio



In addition to running my own etsy shop, I love window shopping (and real shopping, duh) at other etsy shops. That got me thinking that it might make sense to feature cool etsy sellers on this site, since handmade items and pretty things are kind of the lifeblood around here. Plus, who doesn't want to look at fun, new stuff? Sometimes you find great things you just have to share!

For the first ever Etsy Shop of the Month feature, I present Lou Taylor Studio, whose beautiful acrylic jewelry is both sleek and cheeky. The clean lines and simple shapes meld well with the kitschy attitude and pop culture sensibilities. Honestly, it's just pure fun!











Something really cool about Lou Taylor's designs? Many start out as intricate papercuts, like the Frida Kahlo paper art seen below, before being transformed into acrylic jewelry, art prints or even silk scarves. This process gives the pieces a unique style, and shows the intricacy of the details.



This Frida Kahlo paper art later became a necklace and a brooch!


Hand brooch in production, as all the little pieces are glued together.


Lou lists her creative inspirations as color, pattern and vintage fashion illustrations from the 1950s and 1960s, and professes her love for vintage Vogue and Harpers Bazaar covers from the 1920s, which really shows.


Have you ever seen Lou's work before? What's your favorite piece? Got an etsy shop you'd like to see in a future feature? Let me know!
