Collaboration. Like Chocolate in Your Peanut Butter. It's That Good.

Remember that Reese's commercial with the people who walked into each other as they rounded a corner, and happened to stumble across a good thing when their chocolate and peanut butter got all mixed up? OK, maybe I'm dating myself with this old Reese's Peanut Butter Cup commercial from, like, the 1970's.

So this collaboration between two very amazing Etsy shops is just as sweet and satisfying as, well, peanut butter and chocolate.

Sharon of Haber Heartwork and Marisa of Elegant Snobbery have teamed up to bring you some of the cutest pendants I've seen on Etsy.

I've long been a fan of Marisa's vibrant illustrations of whimsical characters. Her artwork begs to illustrate a well-written book, but until she gets her big break my studio walls will have to do. I admire her creativity and skillful use of color. I wish I had only a fraction of her talent. Adorn your space with her gorgeous prints and lose yourself in a fairytale.

Sharon has been a long time customer now, but above all I value her friendship. Her steadfast companionship during late nights of the December shipping season is probably to credit for my sanity (or not). But her work is also meticulous and perfect in every way. You can see the attention to detail in each and every pendant.

Both of these talented artists have been a source of inspiration for me in the daily running of my business and I admire them tremendously. I'm thrilled they've gotten together to combine their talents to create something as delectable and whimsical as these beautifully illustrated pendants.

I don't think my illustrations have ever looked better then they do behind those gorgeous glass pieces! Sharon does beautiful work!

And comparing them to being as good as chocolate and peanut butter... well that is the absolute most nicest thing anyone could ever say, because nothing is as delicious as chocolate and peanut butter!
