Photo of the Day – July 26, 2011: Edward Owl Design and Ornament
Holly Luttrell is the designer behind Edward Owl Design and Ornament. I saw her wide array of jewelry designs and styles, all handmade, and mostly one-of-a-kind this weekend at the Dekalb Market. Holly is an architect by training, and her work reflects the planning and fine construction work of a beautifully designed structure. Her grandfather was a steelworker named Edward, and her grandmother collected owl figurines – hence the name Edward Owl.
Here’s a small world. Several years ago, I was looking for a new home for my Necchi sewing machine that I never used. It’s a tank of a machine, nothing like the plastic ones you get today. I’d won it in an epic battle on eBay, and I wanted it to land in an equally enthusiastic home. Enter Holly, who showed up, recognized the power of the machine, and took it to her studio to use for creating leather jewelry and other designs. Holly and I hit it off, and we stayed in touch via LinkedIn, and more recently Facebook. So it was great to see her and her jewelry designs at the market this weekend!
