June 18, 2009 I love supporting the local artists of the Central Coast, and this blog is a great way for me to do just that! I recently spent a really fun afternoon chatting it up with super talented locally-based artist Shannon Len, of Len Designs. Shannon has a long and well traveled history creating beautiful jewelry, which is greatly inspired by the natural beauty of the Central Coast, as well as her trips around the world.
Oh, did I mention that I was shooting some of her jewelry collection while all this chatting was going on? Here are some tidbits from the afternoon.
Shannon also does an amazing job running our local Art in the Park, which takes place the first Sunday of each month from May through November at Shell Beach's Dinosaur Caves Park. This is such a great place to go to see and support local artists. Running the event is a monumental task, a great resource for our community and should definitely get your support! Maybe someday soon you'll see yours truly at her own booth there....hmmm...
Can't wait to shoot some more ~ thanks Shannon!
Visit Shannon's website for her full line (soon to be updated and added to) and for retail locations. Len Jewelry Designs are available in tons of places such as Hands Gallery in SLO and of course, Art in the Park. And yes, you'll see me rocking some of this beautiful jewelry myself, what a lucky girl!!
