denille e.o. designs Interview with Kate Jones


I recently had an interview with Kate Jones of Om Shanti Handcrafts. Check it out!

“Denille runs Denille E.O. Designs, featuring awesome painted wooden pendants, jewelry, and art. Some of her pendants are sold solo, ready to be strung from a chain of your choice and worn; others she makes into bookmarks, purse clips, and even wine charms.

I interviewed her a while ago, and here’s what she had to say:

Why wood?

Art teacher and website designer Denille E. Obermeyer decided she just wasn’t busy enough, so she used her degree in Fine Arts to establish denille e.o. designs, an online boutique specializing in handmade wooden pendants and accessories.

Denille transfers her original designs to small wooden pendants (1.25 in. x 1.25 in. x 1 cm), which she then coats with resin to produce a shiny and durable finish. Although her current bestseller is the pendant, Denille also offers bookmarks, paintings, and accessories. Read full article…
