Whats your favorite color?

 Whats your favorite color? Seems like an easy question except maybe not. For me every color has a story. For instance my first favorite color was blue. I'm not sure why but it was my childhood favorite color. As an adult it switched to red because red looked smokin hot on me. It was the color of passion and I was all about that! Today its pink. Pink makes me happy. It reminds of a babies bow tie lips. Its the color my best friend loves to wear and it reminds me of spring. 
So whats your favorite color and does it have a story?

Hey everyone I've decided this is the year that I start really contributing to animal rescue organizations using my artistic skills. 
Starting January 21, 2014
Every week I will be making dog or cat sculpture of a real animal that is ready for adoption from my local SPCA (Sacramento CA). When it is sold the profit will be donated to the Sacramento SPCA.
To see updates go to my business facebook page
I will post a picture of dog or cat and a story about the animal if there is one.

 Just posted in my etsy shop. Custom wire and bead spider pendants. All the spiders are handmade by myself. You choose the beads you want along with the wire legs. Its ready to ship is 3 to 5 business days. These little spiders are usually a hit at craft fairs and usually my biggest seller year round. I love to incorporate unique eye catching beads for the spider bodies.  Although its also is fun to get a plan black spider. The black spiders look so real it often startles people, which makes it fun at Halloween! Come check them out at my etsy shop at, I hope you will enjoy yourself!!

About Me

My photo
Antonia Hansen has been making both fine art and crafts all her life. She grew up in a blue collar family that loved to craft. She came from a long line of crocheters dating back to her Great Grandmother. She was exposed to fine art by her Dad's mom on the other side of the family. As a result she walks the fine line between art and craft. Antonia has a Bachelors degree in Music and BA in Art from San Francisco State University. She has worked in several mediums which include: graphite, ink, water color, acrylic paint, oil paint, charcoal, dry pastels, ceramics, paper-mache, jewelry design, knitting, and crocheting. She began working with wire six years ago. While doodling a lot during meetings at work a co-worker suggested that the drawings really lent themselves to wire. That little comment was just the thing to set fire to an idea and push the wire work into motion.
