Art Swap 2013: Tags and Hemp

Andrea Starr contributed not one, but two Art Swap projects to the mix: a handsome collection of hemp jewelry, and a set of animal illustrations drawn on suitcase luggage tags.  The jewelry includes necklaces, bracelets, and anklets, while the tags feature animals ranging from clownfish to buffalo.  A dolphin pendant  necklace (above, middle) marks a subtle crossover between the two sets. 

Andrea Starr has, at one time or another, produced artwork in most every medium I can think of, and a few that I can't.  In addition to having worked in architecture, jewelrymaking, fruit picking, and landscaping, she's one of the founding members of Fertile Underground, an organic food co-op, grocery store, garden, and cafe in Providence started with Kickstarter backing and still bringing fresh fruits and vegetables to the people of Rhode Island.
