Nina Bagley

Many of you may already know the talented magpie jewelry artist, Nina Bagley and her beautiful online journal, Ornamental. I've had her in my links from the beginning but only now am I finally sharing her work with you. Sometimes I have to work up the nerve! And I didn't have trouble finding my courage to contact Nina after I caught up with her recent work involving my favorite-nests! Tattered bits of antique fabric and lace fashioned into nests complete with button and bauble eggs. It feels as though we stumbled upon a similar current of ideas for creating nests and nesting...so I was compelled to contact her right away! Thank you, Nina! Wishing I could meet you for tea! xo

Nina's work is mystifyingly beautiful--as is her soul.

I have had the amazing opportunity to take classes with her--and in particular a 3 day class in Vancouver a few years back.

I forged friendships in this class that continue to this day.

...she creates a magical atmosphere.

I have taken a class from Nina...at art and soul in portland, last year. She along with the other artists inspired me to do an etsy shop and a blog. I am not computer literate so it was quite a challenge.

I enjoy your blog and am putting it on my reader!
