Congrats to Amy Hamley, a Pittsburgh artist who runs RedRaven Studios, who was one of 25 artists from around the globe that joined the executives of Etsy.com in Time Square today to ring the opening bell in honor of Etsy’s IPO.
A huge thanks & congratulations to @etsy and their amazing staff for everything today! Seeing my studio portrait four stories high in Times Square was surreal. #sellerbration

RedRaven Studio has been making porcelain jewlery and home decor in Pittsburgh since 2006. You can purchase RedRaven’s wares on their website, from Etsy and at the annual Pittsburgh craft marketplace Handmade Arcade. RedRaven was also one of the artists to have their items included in the LOCAL collection at West Elm last fall. Last year, Amy was also the first artist mentioned in the New York Times article about Etsy ‘s expansion into the wholesale market.
