For the month of November we are setting our sites on local artist and jewelry designer Sandra Fettingis. Sandra Fettingis is inspired by portraiture, architecture and patterns and her minimal accessory line fulfills her love of clean, simple design. Born and raised in Chicago, Sandra has been calling sunny Denver, CO home for 4 years. Recently Sandra took the time to answer a few questions for us in preparation for her first Friday Denver Made trunk show here at Fancy Tiger Clothing.
FT: How did you get your start?
SF: I've been creating acrylic artwork since 2004, but it wasn't until 2008 when I serendipitously began designing acrylic jewelry to coincide with a solo art show at the Fabric Lab in Denver, CO.
FT: Where do you find your best inspiration for your work?
SF: I find A LOT of different things inspiring.. but, in the end my work is super influenced by the details all around us, specifically in patterns and architecture.
FT: What music do you listen to when you work on your product?
SF: More times than not, its ambient electronic.
FT: What would you like people to know about your work/process that isn’t evident when looking at it?
SF: That many times my designs start off pretty complex, but as I work they become increasingly minimal.
Make sure to join us Friday November 5th from 7pm-10pm at Fancy Tiger Clothing, 14 South Broadway for the unveiling of Sandra's new line of men's accessories. Enjoy beverages from Great Divide Brewery, light snacks and a stunning soundtrack all in celebration of local artist Sandra Fettingis.
See you Friday!
