For tinyshop

Tiny sea urchin pins - crocheted from a big stash of hand-dyed size 10 thread and embroidered, in French knots, with DMC floss. The tag is tyvek. For scale:

They're for a show called tinyshop ( tinyshop.blogspot.com ):
double punch gallery presents tinyshop, a pop-up shop curated by Antoinette Celes, showcasing original art and handmade goods by artists, designers and creatives working in the medium of small.

As the world moves bigger, faster and stronger, we occasionally seek comfort in little things. tinyshop celebrates the preciousness of "mini" --- the shortest distance between 2 points, the space of minutiae, and creative endeavors on a small scale.

tinyshop will run from November 21, 2007 through January 11, 2008, at double punch gallery in San Francisco's North Beach district. Special events will be held throughout the shop's lifespan, pondering the tiny theme. Fun-spirited folks and magnifying glasses are most welcome.
I'm really excited to be involved with this, alongside tons of fantastic artists. The show so far includes Ashley G, Amy Earles, Jill Bliss and lots more. November 24th is the opening night!
