orange beautiful also sells other artist's handmade work; lots of chicago-based artists (like essimar) as well as some a little further away (crafterall) and even further than that (gold teeth brooklyn). a great place to pop in to see what's new and what they're working on!
while i was there, i got to see a brand new installation by sarah fox of cursive design. made up of lacy scraps left over from the jewelry pieces she creates, sarah incorporates a painted branch from an earlier accident involving her car and other small trinkets organized by color. i loved it's simple colors and intricate pieces.
it was a rainy day, so my photos really don't do it justice- check out sarah's post about the work here for some proper photos.
