Caterpillar Peacock

Today Caterpillar Peacock is riding the Crazy Marketing Train. Lindsey is an artist on Artfire who creates teeny tiny little hats and very unique jewelry. You can find her at and She's a self proclaimed "big weirdo" and describes herself as funny, ironic, and off kilter. Which explains why she makes teeny tiny little hats (which I think are just so cute and funny). First she crochets the hats, then machine felts them until they're "just right". Then she blocks them into the desired shape. Not only does she make berets, fedoras, and top hats, but she also makes felted jewelry. Right now she's working on plant inspired jewelry for spring. Pesonally, I like her Calla Lilies. Perfect for Easter. Lindsey says she's inspired by color, nature, things from the 50's to the 70's, comic books, and just about anything interesting. Her mother taught her how to crochet when she was only 8 years old. Like myself, Lindsey is another artist who simply MUST create. I certainly understand that drive to make things. Her favorite craft books are a series from the 70's called Creative Hands, and Lindsey certainly does have creative hands. Her are just a few of her creations.
