Here are two artists who’ve offered a discount to LAB readers from the wonderful world of Etsy and my Etsy Share post. I couldn’t help but notice that they both are in the Albuquerque, NM area. And, they have one more detail in common: both of these talented artists are also architects. Interesting, aye? First up is Melanie Shelor and her Laminar collection.

Melanie mixes her love for architecture with jewelry design and has produced these very contemporary pieces. I like the simple and clean lines of these oxidized silver earrings. She’s offering LAB readers free shipping when you use code SHIPPINGLAB. The discount expired on January 31st, so act fast!

Next up, we have another architect turned handmaker, Deirdre Harris. Her collection of linens is called Sometimes Jane. Besides tea towels and napkins, which will appear on LAB Maison later this week, Deirdre’s collection also includes these lovely scarves.

The scarves, like the rest of the collection, feature hand-drawn graphics and are hand-printed with water-based ink on natural 100% linen. At 88″ long, there’s plenty of fabric to wrap it twice with enough left to tuck into your jacket or coat. Grab your own with free shipping by using code LABSHIP. The discount is only for domestic shipping.

Thanks Deirdre & Melanie! Stay tuned for the next Etsy Share post on February 1st, 2013.
