Meet Teresa Rusk AKA Trusk4u

Introducing yet another amazing artist, this gal is one after my own heart. Not only does she live in North Carolina (one of my favorite states), but we have quite a bit  in common!
Teresa began her crafting career with sewing and only had jewelry making as a hobby. Later on the hobby became her more prominent form of crafting and even an obsession. (sound familiar?) She is constantly exploring new techniques and mediums and her work definitely shows this diversity. You know you're in for a treat when an artist's favorite materials are " beads of any sort, recycling old jewelry, wire, life, sense of humor." Here are some of the wonderful goodies that I found at Trusk4u on Etsy.

Check out this delicate and beautiful example of wire wrapping. The perfect gift for Valentine's Day!

I especially love this cute bunny necklace as it would make an adorable addition to any little girl's Easter basket.

I also love the colors in this beautiful bracelet. ( aptly named, She's a Classy Dame )

If you visit her blog you are instantly struck with how generous this crafter is. She is constantly promoting the works of other artists and even allows artists to promote themselves on her blog. She also has links to help support a variety of worthy causes such as building a playground for an elementary school. (It also made me happy to be listening to Donald Fagen while reading her blog. )

You can also find her at

Hope that everyone is having a super duper day! Thanks for stopping by!
