I am thrilled to bring you Nancy Fallon as the debut artist in SBLC’s new segment “What’s Your Story”. It won’t be hard to see why I had to know more about this artist. Her versatility and style hooked me. From mixed media pieces to knit coin purses to pendants and beautiful note cards… here are some items I found in her Etsy shop, followed by a detailed interview. Enjoy!
When and why did you set up your online shop?

What inspires your work?
I’ve written a few blog posts about what inspires my fine art and my jewelry designs here (http://nfallondesignstudio.
For my knits and card sets, I’m really inspired by color. I love bright, really saturated colors, and I love finding unexpected combinations that work with one another in oddly attractive ways. For the designs, I just work out something I think I’d love to have or something that would function well with my things. My designs tend to be simple and utilitarian so they don’t fight with the sometimes tastefully outrageous things I have going on in color and texture with them.
