Isn't it Grand!

Here I am back again with another HAF blog ring artisan feature. This week I get to feature CJGrand from The Grand Design. This is an interesting one for me, as one of the styles she specialises in is SteamPunk, which is not something I have really understood or even liked very much. But I have to say that her style of SteamPunk is very inspiring, and very attractive. Enough so that I am reconsidering my previous aversion to the style.
The other items that she creates is Healing Jewelry, using gemstones. Her creations are fabulous, making the most of the fabulous abundance of gemstones available.
You can see more of her fabulous creations in her Etsy and her ArtFire stores, as well as checking out her blog, where she promotes other handmade artisans and items.

Beautiful picks! Steampunk is definitely a different style and I'm glad you can see some of the beauty in it!

Her way of creating this style has made me warm up to it a bit more too. Her pieces have an elegance about them. Great post!

Steampunk is definitely something different but I think that CJ does it such justice that you can't help but like it! Great post!

I love her work, but then I've been a Steampunk fan since I first noticed it.

Love CJ's work she is the steampunk goddess! Grand Design has also been such a wonderful member of our group and has helped me many times with the Daily Steampunk as well as other stuff.
Thanks Haffina for such a great post about a great member and artist.

I agree with you on really changing my mind about the steampunk style. I have always liked it but didn't really know the background.
Wonderful post and CJ's work is outstanding.
