Starting today and continuing through the month of February, I’ll be featuring the artists that are currently sharing space in the LAB Pop Up Shop. Today’s featured artist is Keiko Brodeur the mastermind behind Small Adventure. Her hand drawn and hand painted designs are just pure joyful fun.
Take for instance her handmade Bird Call Necklace. OK, confession time: I’m not a camper. My idea of roughing it in the wild is a Motel 6. However, I just might go to the woods, just for an excuse to use this lovely thing. This is a real Audubon Bird Call that Keiko has added a tiny hand painted bird (Portlandia fans, you know what to do) that has been sealed into the wood. The necklace features a long tan knotted leather chord so you can adjust it to the desired length.
For that added touch, Keiko mails it in a hand screen printed drawstring pouch. She even gives you a color choice of either red wood or natural wood. Measuring at just under 2.5″, it also include a capsule of resin to rub between the wood and metal parts to renew the bird call sound.
There is a lot to love in the Small Adventure shop. I just adore these prints and the cards.
